Watch live discussion with politician Vahagn Khachatryan

At 12.00, the Hayeli (Mirror) Club in Yerevan hosts Vahagn Khachatryan, an opposition politician and an economist. The guest will speak about Armenia’s decision to join the Customs Union, the situation on Stepantsiminda-Lars highway, the consequences of the blocked roadway, the option of an alternative way, etc.

On September 3, 2013, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan unexpectedly announced Armenia’s ‘willingness’ to join the trade-club seen as the EU-alternative — a customs union with Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. A year has passed and Armenia is still in the Customs Union’s ‘waiting room.’
