Robert Kocharian


The previous president of Armenia was famous for his love to cut red ribbons and open buildings and different things regardless of whether they were complete or not. I always felt jealous of his scissors.

Now mere mortals like me can have scissors as fancy as his.

I suppose showing a woman holding them would have been way too scary... ;)

Can you give a few examples of incomplete buildings and other things opened by Kocharian? Were they in the capital Yerevan? I'm curious

Kocharian opened the Iran-Armenia natural gas pipeline 3 years before it was completed. There was a spectacle that even included a natural gas flame supposedly made with the gas from the pipeline. It was delivered in a propane tank, unfortunately.
