Member of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) Karen Avagyan
offered to establish a park in Armenia to host all dismantled
monuments.

"They make a part of our history," Avagyan told a press conference
in Yerevan. He noted that monuments are dismantled in many countries
worldwide due to various reasons.

Well-known Armenian sculptor Levon Tokmajyan noted for his part that,
for example, the dismantlement of Worker Monument was quite a jolt to
its author Ara Harutyunyan. "Any monument reflects the era, during
which it was created, while the nation should respect its history,"
he said.
