'Good old days' for Armenia’s Public TV main information programme
After some minor positive temporary improvements under the European pressures, Armenian Public TV’s main Haylur information programme returned back to its 'good old' broadcasting policy - effectively, no or almost no opposition related or alternative news on the air. Radio Liberty remains the main source of independent and opposition related information for Armenians. Perhaps, the authorities think that Europe is busy with more important things right now and will not pay attention to Armenia’s fulfilling its obligations. Soon we will get the answers. But what I care most is Armenian authorities’ obligations towards its own citizens, and restoration of freedoms and rights not just because of international obligations, but because that’s the only way forward for Armenia.
