We haven’t seen something like before. The boiling tails of Agarak combine are directly dumped into the Araks River. If it were not tails but water, a SHHP would be constructed directly on that spot. An ore processing plant is being constructed between Litchq and Tashtoun villages and the fertile land is dumped directly into the gorge. Uranium used to be searched for here, and now new mines will be opened here. Copper and molybdenum, gold will be exported to international markets, while the radiation will remain as a gift. And then mine after mine. So what will we get instead of Meghri persimmon and pomegranates - polluted fruit?” the locals asked.
