There have always been environmental problems connected with Nairit chemical plant in Yerevan, ever since the Soviet times. I think residents of nearby residential areas were to be evacuated after a fire burst out in the chemical plant yesterday, environmentalist Silva Adamyan said on Tuesday.
“Today we have cheated employees and looted plant,” she said.
The environmentalist thinks the fire at the rubber plant was started deliberately.
“… because we all know that they [the authorities] wanted to resell the plant and there were certain things that could not be shown publicly. This is a disgraceful situation. They set the plant on fire to hide the traces of looting,” she added.
