"For many years my  wife and I thought about what we can do for Armenia and the Armenian  people. We thought and discussed many projects, but in the end we  decided to implement the cultural idea.  Erebuni and the Urartu  region played an important role in shaping our history and culture.  Our goal is to expand the museum's space and attract more visitors.  The signing of the contract was the first step in this direction. I  hope next year we will lay the first stone in the foundation of the  future building, "he said.
