    Incredible shame. The further degeneration of Armenian society. Good luck Armenia. Kidem vor Astudso check havadar, payts Astvads tzer hedeh ellah.

    At least now women can read it in Armenian instead of Russian.

    Otherwise this is completely shameful.

    What is the use of publishing such foreign rubishes, if the only impact will be spreading immorality in Armenia, and weakening the moral fabric of our country Hayastan.

    A deplorably shameless undertaking by spineless people in Armenia.

    Of course they would choose the stupid Kim Kardashian to grace the cover of the Armenian version of Cosmo.She’s just a hooker who used a sex tape to become famous. Very disappointing.

    This is a great idea to have an Armenian Cosmopolitan, it will modernize Armenia yet we can still hold on to our traditions. Bravo for progress.
