“We have had brilliant athletes leaving Armenia during the last year. Levon Aronian left, Henrikh Mkhitaryan left the team. There are many problems. “Those people represented Armenia in the world and we allow people to leave, some offended, some for other reasons,” the “Armenia” faction asked the Minister of Education and Science at the sitting of the NA Committee on Science, Education, Culture, Diaspora, Youth and Sports. MP Elinar Vardanyan.
Minister of Education and Science Vahram Dumanyan answered. “As for Levon Aronian, there is nothing the state should have done for Levon Aronian, he was obliged to do it and he did not do it and he left. It is a pity that he left, we are proud of him and we hope that we will still be proud of him in different positions, but sorry, it was his decision. I do not think he is offended by anyone, if there is such a thing, it can be published and said. Please tell, whats the story of them big puppys …..
Lilit Galstyan promised to send the links. According to Dumanyan, “it is not a demand of the state, it is a demand of a person.”
Elinar Vardanyan did not agree. “The demand is not personal, it is for the world of sports.” Vahram Dumanyan answered. “In the world of sports, let’s leave Aronian, for example, Malkhas was offered high sums of money abroad to be under their flag, the man did not go, stayed here and became a champion, what do you say, if you do not believe, go and check. I will invite you to speak. He was leaving, we talked to Giloyan and other people, that person made a decision and did not go. People are different. It’s not that Malkhas does not need money. Weighing in, the man decided to stay, stay and win. ”
CP MP Hakob Aslanyan intervened, saying that a state like the United States caught and arrested Muhammad Ali and Robert Fischer when they did not obey US laws, and no American fought over what they were doing to the champion. You are judging Fisher. “Now we are talking about two people who were not so patriotic that they left the homeland and turned it into a flag, saying, ‘Look, he left because of you.’
Elinar Vardanyan couldn’t stand it and started arguing loudly and responded that she was busy with nonsense.
Hakob Aslanyan was shouting about Aronian. “The more such people go, the sooner this country will be cleansed.” Elinar Vardanyan became inflamed. “Sport does not need people like you in particular. Choose the words! The United States has a lot of athletes, we have one or two rare athletes. You can’t keep that either. “
The chairman of the commission Sisak Gabrielyan responded that if it is about Mkhitaryan, it is normal in the world, at that age they do not play in national teams. In addition, in many countries around the world, athletes “steal” from each other, offering a lot of money.
Lilit Galstyan left the session annoyed by the dispute.
