Land battle... then apricot war... now water struggle

There is a village in Tavush Province called Dovegh not far from where the July Battles took place. It will be better irrigated at the expense of Azeri bordering villages.

--

QP MP Sipan Pashinyan (Nikol's cousin): Only 5ha out of 45ha lands near villagers' houses are being irrigated with an automatic system. The other 37ha lands are being farmed only at 10% capacity due to lack of water.

We've launched a water pump with the help of HayEconom Bank. It'll feed off of a small river that flows through the village into Azerbaijan. We will prioritize our people over Azerbaijan.

Armenian villagers farm not far away from new Anvakh outpost

Tavush's Anvakh border outpost was liberated by the Armenian army during July Battles.

Choratan villagers will soon have irrigation water and expand farming on the lands near the border, hundreds of meters away from frontlines.

Shots could be heard coming from the borders while the farmers collected the yield. They showed a bullet earlier extracted from the land.

LHK responds to draft law aimed at allowing army draft evaders to return

Diasporan Armenians who didn't serve in the Armenian army used to be able to pay a $7,500 penalty and return, without having to draft or go to prison. The ruling QP party allowed that law to expire.

Now they drafted a new bill that is yet to be discussed. It would raise the penalty sum and toughen the punishment for not serving in the army.

--

Opposition LHK comments the proposed law: // the bill will make the army dodging a heavy crime instead of medium. The prison sentence doubles. Since it'll be a heavy crime, the statute of limitations doubles from 5 to 10 years, meaning people will have to wait longer to arrive [without paying].

Under-27 men will avoid punishment if they return and serve. But now, they could possibly serve 18 months longer because the law will add an extra month of service for every evaded season (9 years of evading, multiplied by failure to appear 2 times a year, equals 18)

Over-27 men will avoid punishment if they pay a penalty equalling the salary and bonus of a 2-year contractor. It will be around $10,000.

--

When the former govt tried to raise the penalty from $3,700 to $18,700, we opposed it and settled with a $7,400 penalty.

Last year we urged Pashinyan's govt to keep the $7,400 law, but they were against the idea of taking money and dropping the charges in general.

Then we urged a total amnesty of all army evaders, but they rejected it, too.

--

Those who couldn't pay the old $7,400 penalty cannot pay the newly proposed $10,000 penalty, either. //

Armenian drivers in Russia could have one less headache

EAEU trade bloc will work with member states to resolve problems that affected Armenian and Kazakh drivers beginning in 2019.

--

Armenian govt will expand the sharing of vehicle registration/ clearance/fee information with EAEU. Armenian drivers, who took their cars to Russia for long-term use without proper registration in Russia, will receive information from Russian authorities on how to properly register and pay a fee.

--

Context: customs fees for clearing a vehicle is much lower in Armenia than in Russia, which affects the final vehicle price. As a result, 400,000 drivers (mostly non-Armenian) imported a car to Armenia then moved it to Russia for permanent personal use. Russia later introduced new laws that caused problems.

The church celebrates Խաչվերաց տոն

Խաչվերաց (raising the cross) is the last one of five celebrations, and the most important one, dedicated to Holy Cross.

It dates back to the origins of Christianity when apostle Jacob, who served as the first bishop of Jerusalem, raised the Cross above residents to read a prayer.

It's celebrated on a Sunday between September 11-17.
