MP SHOCKED BY WHAT HE SAW AT BORDER WITH GEORGIA

Member of Parliament Hrant Bagratyan shared his concerns about
emigration on his Facebook wall. Visiting the north of Armenia
and crossing the Georgian border on Sunday, he saw something that
shocked him. Hundreds of people are crossing the border on foot,
leaving Armenia and carrying along with them their luggage and
bed. These people are happy to leave Armenia. Only some of them
were dissatisfied that they cannot take away with them their cattle,
the ex-prime minister of Armenia tells.

He says he was terrified by the number of people who crossed the
border by the BCP of Bagratashen. On April 21 6000 people crossed
the border while usually this number is below 1000, usually 400-500
people daily leave Armenia by this BCP.

The member of parliament talked to some young men from Achajur
village. His impression was that the young men were happy to leave.

They said there were days when 120 people left their village in
one day.
