ArmInfo. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan commented on the charges against the third President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan.
Thus, Pashinyan from the rostrum of the parliament, answering the corresponding question, answered that in essence, he can only say what is already in the media. "According to publications, the case is related to a program for subsidizing fuel in the agricultural sector. Mr. Avinyan and I remembered that it was our government that covered up this program, because we thought it was a corruption program, from which in fact, the villagers did not benefit. We were criticized for this, it's now becoming clear that a tender has been announced for the subsidization program for these petroleum products and a cheap price has been offered during the tender. According to the case, Serzh Sargsyan instructed the government body to purchase diesel not from the company offering cheaper price, but a company whose name I'm sure will not say anything to any of you. The name of this company is Flash, "Pashinyan said, adding that this is the whole story.
"I believe that the investigation will find out. I can't say anything more than made public," Pashinyan summed up.
