“PRESS-CLUB+”: “NATIONAL UNITY” DISCUSSING ARMENIAN-RUSSIAN RELATIONS AND DRAM EXCHANGE RATE GROWTH

On October 17 the eighteenth talk show of “Press Club+” series went on the
evening air of “Yerkir-Media” TV company.

This time the program host, the Chief Editor of “Aravot” daily Aram Abrahamian
has only one guest: the leadership of “National Unity” decided that its leader,
Artashes Geghamian, will be speaking on party’s behalf. Thus, the program format
“two guests, two experts (this time representing NGOs and media) and audience”
was broken. The TV discussion centered on relations between Armenia and Russia
and the growth of Armenian dram exchange rate in the context of its impact on
the domestic political situation in the country.

It is expected that at 21.00, October 24 (next Tuesday) “Yerkir-Media” will
air another “Press Club+” show where the representatives of United Labour Party
will share their opinions on the issues of the day.
