There are over 200 mass media in Armenia, announced Member of
Parliament Hranush Hakobyan during the celebration of the Day of
Freedom of Press at the Armenian office of the UN. According to
her, if in the early 90s there was only one TV channel and several
newspapers in Armenia, today the situation has changed fundamentally.

According to Hranush Hakobyan, there are problems related with freedom
of press in Armenia, but these are secondary against the achievements
in freedom of speech over these years. "Fifteen years is too little
time to reach a level of culture that Europe has," announced Hranush
Hakobyan, adding that Europe rose to this height after struggle that
lasted for a century.
