Fire Destroys Cultural Center of Akhalkalak

AKHALKALAK(A-Info)–On the early morning of December 15 the building housing the Cultural Center of Akhalkalak caught on fire. The building which was erected in 1910 and included the regional children’s library–completely burned down destroying the entire collection of books.

Speaking about the possible causes of the fire–the director of the Center Haig Rstakyan–dismissed the official version that an electrical powerline shortage as the cause of the blaze; according to him it was nothing but political coercion against his brother David Rstakyan–the co-chairman of Virk party.
