It is obvious that the community of Sevan and the national park will be able to solve this problem with effective organization of their work. there are people who, for reasons known to you and us, have concluded treaties at ridiculous prices, paying a penny for a hectare of coastal territories. It is necessary to find the legal basis for revising these treaties, translating them to the proper level and apply the principles.The rent of the national park areas should become a serious source of income.There are many problems that need to be solved.I asked the director of the National Park to provide a certificate of all tenants, including those that appeared on these territories, their relationship with law and law. It is necessary to determine the fate of these mansions, some of which will be taken by law enforcement agencies, but the main issue is to transfer leases to the proper level
