Press Review


“Armenia’s constitution has turned 21,” “Zhoghovurd” writes in a commentary on the anniversary of its passage in a referendum held in July 1995. “For a considerable part of Armenia’s citizens the constitution has never become the country’s Basic Law. There are many reasons for this fact. The most important of them is that the citizens have still not seen the constitution actually work, having been stripped of their right to change the government through elections. Until this problem is solved Armenian citizens will continue to treat the constitution as an irrelevant document and to mark Constitution Day in the absence of a constitutional order.”

“Chorrord Ishkhanutyun” quotes a Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman as saying that Russia is seeking a quick resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.Moscow, the paper speculates, is sending the following message to the conflicting parties: “Quickly settle the conflict or a war will break out and there will be many casualties among civilians.” “But could it be that the Russian message is addressed to Azerbaijan, rather than us?” it asks. “Is the Russian Foreign Ministry urging them to make prompt concessions and warning that Armenian forces will otherwise attack and massacre civilians? … In theory, this is possible. But logic suggests that if this was the case Russia would sell weapons to Armenia, rather than Azerbaijan.”

“Hayots Ashkhar” comments on this week’s victory of Armenia’s national basketball team in a European tournament. “One of the prerequisites of sporting success is to ensure a certain level of economic development and the population’s well-being,” writes the paper. “Are we waiting for miracles or have clear goals or plans? If we hope for miracles then there will be no miracles.”
