According to the owner, the damage would cost him from 800 000 to one million AMD. Yezek Aghvanyan was a head of pre-election campaign office of Levon Ter-Petrosyan. According to Y. Aghvanyan, he managed to involve about 16 people from six villages around Odzun as proxies of Levon Ter-Petrosyan. He says that the proxies were brought to police after March 2 and according to one of them they were asked: “Are you anti?” (These terms were used during totalitarianism of Stalin times).
