YEREVAN, June 27. /TASS/. Current actions of protest in Yerevan do not have an anti-Russian character, President Serzh Sargsyan of Armenia said on Friday night as he met with the Russian Transport Minister, Maxim Sokolov, who is taking part in a session of the Inter-Governmental Commission for Economic Cooperation.
"Some experts are trying to perceive anti-Russian sentiments in it," he said. "But the demonstrators themselves say such assertions are absurd, and that’s good."
Sokolov said he had discussed the issues related to the operations of the Armenian Power Grids distributor company with members of the Armenian government. This company, which is an affiliation of the Russian corporation INTER RAO UES, is the focus of criticism of the protesters.
The meeting was attended by the Armenian Deputy Prime Minister, Energy Minister and the chairman of the Commission for Public Services and Utilities.
"What’s most important, there’s a clear programme for how to extricate this enterprise from its critical situation," Sokolov said. "Certain measures have been mapped out and a schedule for them has been drawn up. Also, the necessary instruments have been envisioned.".
