Vahagn Hovakimyan, MP from the NA “My Step” fraction, made inadmissible remarks on the journalist of “Hraparak” daily, Vahe Makaryan.
The incident took place in the NA corridor. Vahagn Hovakimyan went beyond the bounds of ethics suitable to a state official; he made assessments, not considering Vahe Makaryan a journalist, and then calling him a traitor.
Vahagn Hovakimyan has crossed the boundaries of politeness.
“Media Advocate” initiative urges the politicians to be accurate in their statements, not to label journalists, considering the tense atmosphere in the country, and not to aggravate it with such steps.
