On February 14 on the evening air of the Second Armenian TV Channel the twelfth
“Press Club” show was issued. The cycle is organized by Yerevan Press Club under
a homonymous project, supported by the OSI Network Media Program.
The heads of leading media and journalistic associations of Armenia discussed
two major subjects: the possible reasons for the major skirmish on February
4 in Yerevan, and the situation at the parliament and its failure to start the
spring session. The program participants expect the central subjects of Armenian
media this week to be the visit of the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov
to Armenia and the reports of the Government on the work done in 2004. By the
suppositions of “Press Club” show guests, the media will keep in the focus of
their attention the investigation on the criminal skirmish named above, as well
as the response of Armenian public to the arrest of the Chairman of “Union of
Armenian Aryans” Armen Avetisian, charged with national hostility incitement.
