Aparan-Vanadzor highway, which was blocked in the morning by the residents of Alagyaz, Meliq, Tsaghkahovit, Rya Taza communities in Aragatsotn Region, was unblocked with the meeting with Acting Aragatsotn Regional Head Mushegh Abgaryan. The residents blocked the highway because of the decrease in the milk collection price. “We have taken out loan for cattle breeding, bought special forage to keep the animals, while the milk collection price was decreased to 120-130 AMD out of 180 AMD. My children shouldn’t be hungry: if the villagers stay hungry, city dwellers won’t be full ever,” the residents were complaining and demanding to solve this problem. The acting Regional Head asked for two days to find a solution to this problem. He promised to discuss this problem with Agriculture Ministry and milk collecting companies.
