Pashinyan: An agreement has been reached that there will be no  blackouts for non-payment of utility bills

ArmInfo.Given the current situation, it was agreed that there would be no blackouts for  non-payment of utility bills. The Prime Minister of the Republic of  Armenia Nikol Pashinyan announced this on March 25 from the  parliamentary rostrum.

According to him, this agreement was reached with the assistance of  PSRC with the relevant companies, including Gazprom Armenia CJSC. As  the prime minister explained, this agreement was not spoken openly in  order to avoid possible speculation. Pashinyan recognizes that in  light of the situation with coronavirus, social and economic issues  are extremely relevant. Meanwhile, the Government's approach to their  solution is that the assistance provided should be targeted, given  that it will be carried out with public funds and appropriate  reporting should be provided.

Regarding the possibility of canceling utility bills in connection  with the current situation, the prime minister drew attention to a  number of aspects. Firstly, in the current realities, civil servants  continue to receive wages, while socially disadvantaged groups of the  population- benefits. Despite this, an agreement was reached with the  relevant companies that there would be no blackouts for non-payment  of utility bills.  "Even with this in mind, I urge citizens, if  possible, not to delay payments, so as not to aggravate the  situation," the prime minister emphasized.
