Ardvi, Mghart, Odzun, Aygehat, Arevatsag residents have blocked the road running to Mghart so as to fail the public hearings on Shekaghbyur project.
The protesters have raised posters saying ‘Ardvi is Armenian Holy Place’, “Our Gold Is Our Nature”, “Off Ardvi”. “Yelq” faction MP Lena Nazaryan is also in Mghart.
