ArmInfo.The Government of Armenia in the course of its activities faces a number of problems of a socio-psychological and civilizational nature. This statement was made by the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan on December 5 before the start of the cabinet meeting.
According to the prime minister, the authorities of the republic are aimed at solving specific problems. "Thank God this is starting to work out for us. At the same time, we are faced with a problem of the following nature: having solved the problem of one group, the population, the other, according to the logic of the ill-wishing neighbor, is indignant that the government did not solve its problem as a matter of priority. This the problem is of a socio-psychological and civilizational nature and it seems that sometimes it's better not to do anything so that everything is quiet, reconciled with the situation, as in the old days, everything languishes in its own juice, "Pashinyan emphasized. According to the prime minister, the tasks accumulated in the republic over many years cannot be solved with one movement of the hand. Thinking about this phenomenon, the head of government came to the conclusion that the residents of Armenia, basically, were never strong in one very primitive, civilizational mechanism, namely, in the ability to stand in line. "This is actually a very serious problem of the civilizational order, and I am glad that the practice of standing in lines is already spreading in the country, in particular in the banking system," he said.
Another problem of a civilizational nature in the Republic of Armenia, according to Pashinyan, is related to the fact that the construction work being carried out in the country necessarily requires the presence and accumulation of garbage. "Mr. Vermishyan (head of the Urban Planning Committee - Ed.) I gave you the relevant order a few months ago. I don't understand why the relevant department does not fine and impose sanctions on developers who accumulate mountains of garbage around themselves," he turned to him The Prime Minister, emphasizing that he recalled this problem, when he rose from his cabinet in the government to the conference room.
Pashinyan also expressed bewilderment at the fact that a construction worker works in his daily clothes. "They must have a uniform. It's the same if we came to government meetings in old home clothes and sat here in tatters."
he pointed out. According to the head of the Cabinet, construction companies earn millions and it is not difficult for them to allocate funds for the purchase of workwear for workers. "Why does the town-planning committee not carry out work in this direction?", The prime minister asked.
In addition, as the head of the cabinet said, there is information that refugees from the village of Artsvashen (the territory of Armenia captured by the Azerbaijani armed forces in August 1992 - Ed.), Who now live in the Gegharkunik region of the Republic of Armenia, are going to hold a protest outside the government building. They demand that they allocate funds for the restoration of the housing stock, which, according to them, is in a deplorable state. Meanwhile, as Pashinyan pointed out, de jure it was recorded that the state had fulfilled all its obligations to refugees. "They say that yes, at one time the government used brute force and forced it to sign some documents and thereby close the problem. We understand this, but what is the reason for the situation that we have today? We simply decided to allocate about 2 billion drams to solve specific problems of refugees (the decision to provide housing certificates to about 112 families forcibly deported from Azerbaijan in 1988-1992 - Ed.) What is the logic of a neighbor-ill-wisher? Or do they want us to be rude too? The same situation around Amulsarsky project When we were perplexed by the fact that the people remain silent about the problem of a few years ", - he said.
According to the head of government, most likely, similar problems will soon arise in connection with the provision of housing to residents of the Spitak earthquake disaster zone. "We say that today the state has obligations to provide housing for 453 citizens who have the relevant documents in their hands," the prime minister said. But, the prime minister is convinced that. Having solved the housing issues for the beneficiaries of this program, the government will face claims from others that require a momentary solution to their problems.
As Nikol Pashinyan emphasized, the authorities are not afraid to resolve issues despite the fact that many are guided by the logic of an ill-wishing neighbor. "Stand in line, all urgent issues will be resolved, but let's give up logic to solve issues by force," the head of government said.
