Just like the old days, Armenia’s ex-president Robert Kocharian likes skiing. RFE/RL’s film-crew caught sight of him in Tsakhadzor on January 6th. And just like in the old days – Kocharian avoids journalists as much as he can. Times change, presidents change, Kocharian doesn’t…
Skiing, jazz and basketball are 3 things that became very popular among Armenian officials while Kocharian was in power. Some officials actually stayed with those hobbies even after Kocharian left presidency – perhaps in the hope of Kocharian’s comeback? E.g. the head of Armenian traffic police Margar Ohanian was also in the resort – hoping to meet and ski along the ex-president at some point.
On the second half of the day the president of Armenia Serzh Sargsian arrived in Tsakhadzor as well.
