No Armenian Government Expenditures to House Those Fleeing Fighting in Artsakh

The Armenian government has yet to allocate any money to house people who have fled the fighting in Artsakh and now reside in Armenia.

The Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs, responding to a Hetq query on the matter, says that its partner organizations and the private sector have aided in this respect.

The ministry says that, under law, it is only responsible for the housing of people from Artsakh temporarily residing in Armenia.

As to the number of Artsakh residents who’ve recently moved to Armenia, the ministry said it could not provide any digital data for several reasons.

First, the provision of such data contravenes the government’s decision to declare a state of war in Armenia. Second, such data is incomplete. Third, the ministry is not authorized to count these people.

The ministry says it has set-up a welcoming center in Yerevan’s Kanaker-Zeytoun District for people newly arriving from Artsakh who have no place to stay. The ministry also has two support hotlines.

According to the ministry, food, clothing and hygiene items for those who’ve moved to Armenia are taken care of by the local self-government agencies.  

The ministry says that people from Artsakh have taken up temporary residence throughout Armenia.
