Activists of the Armenian Environmental Front have posted the following on the Front’s Facebook page:
“Several dozens of citizens of Turkey, who used to be shareholders of Lydian, are interested in the exploitation of the Amulsar gold mine.
We wouldn’t feel the need to touch upon this, if the people having invested Turkish capital in Lydian hadn’t written to us environmentalists, insulting us, exerting psychological pressure on us and disseminating fictional news about us — the same fictional news that is disseminated by Lydian and the fake pages, users and mass media that serve Lydian.
To this day, Lydian and the fake Facebook users who serve the latter have identified us environmentalists with targets of ethnic hatred on their Facebook pages, in articles that they are paid to write and on the ground of ethnic hatred.
It turns out that on the one hand, Lydian allows people living in Armenia to go against us on the ground of ethnic hatred, which is indirect incitement of violence, but on the other hand, it calmly accepts Turkish capital, presents itself to the Government of Armenia as a large investor, the activities of which would lead to the increase of Turkish, British, Canadian, Armenian and any other capital of the globalized world by thousands, and our land and the habitat of our generations would be destroyed.”
