Armenian Apostolic Church intends to reclaim its territories in Moldova


The Armenian Apostolic Church in Moldova intends to reclaim
territories belonging to the church that were illegally sold several
years ago, and then resold.

The head of the press service of the Office of the Holy Echmiadzin of
the Armenian Church, Vahram Melikyan, told News.am that in Chisinau
shortly after Moldova gained independence, the head of the Armenian
community concluded an illegal deal to sell church buildings, which
were later resold. Among the buildings were educational institutions,
including historic buildings of Armenian schools. As Melikyan said,
today these buildings are under threat of demolition.
