RA Ambassador: The situation with coronavirus will seriously  affect RA citizens who have left for Russia to work

ArmInfo.The situation with coronavirus will seriously affect RA citizens who have left Russia to work . Ambassador of Armenia to Russia Vardan Toghanyan expressed  this opinion in an interview with the Lurer program of the Public  Television of Armenia, answering the question of how quarantine and  restrictions will affect the social status of Armenian citizens who  have left for Russia to earn money.

"This is an important issue that will have a serious impact on  Armenia in terms of economic consequences.  This problem is a set of  problems due to restrictions introduced in such areas as  construction, services, wholesale, shopping centers, which either  limited or almost non-work, or are on the verge of closure. The  number of RA citizens involved in work in these areas, both  seasonally living in Russia and on an ongoing basis, is actually  large. Naturally, now there is the problem of closure, temporary  suspension of these enterprises or facilities, return to Armenia. And  this is an objective problem: without income, these people will be  forced to return to their homeland. The problem will arise a bit  later, because the restrictions have only been introduced, and people  should take appropriate decisions, "Toganyan noted.  

To clarify how many RA citizens or Armenians are infected with  coronavirus in the Russian Federation, the Ambassador said that they  have information about only one Armenian citizen, who, after arriving from Krasnodar, was isolated in the infectious diseases hospital  in Sochi.
