Incident occurred between Gagik Tsarukyan and journalists

When conducting its monitoring “Media Advocate” Initiative noticed an incident which occurred between Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP) leader Gagik Tsarukyan and the journalists during a briefing.

The journalist asked Gagik Tsarukyan whether he is going pay the employees for a forced outage. The PAP leader insulted the journalist, saying; “Girl, how long you may make such an empty talk.”

“Media Advoate” initiative urges the PAP leader to respect the journalist’s work, avoid labeling them. Every politician may not answer a question that is not desirable for him, but responding with an insult is unacceptable.
