faction Ara Nranian, and the experts were the head of Transparency International
Armenia Amalia Kostanian and the Board Chairman of “Asparez” Journalist’s Club
of Gyumri Levon Barseghian. The discussion focused on countering corruption
and “Dashnaktsutiun” signing on June 6 the agreement of cooperation with the
ruling coalition of Republican Party of Armenia and “Bargavach Hayastan” party
(“Prosperous Armenia”).

The next program of “Press Club” cycle will be aired by “Yerkir-Media” on June
