New Paskaleva Series to be Televised in Armenia

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–A new series of documentaries produced by Bulgarian journalist Tsvetana Paskaleva called "Aspect" will be televised on Armenia’s national TV beginning Wednesday–the Bulgarian journalist told her colleagues at news conference Monday.

Last October the former Armenian authorities banned a series of Paskaleva’s programs called "My Beloved People: Alive and Dead" dedicated to the heroic liberation struggle of Nagorno-Karabakh.

"The program `My Beloved People: Alive and Dead’ had a narrow focus and was dedicated to Karabakh only. So–taking into consideration the new trends and issues facing the Armenian people–I decided to broaden the scope of the program," added Paskaleva said.

She said that "Aspect" would address problems pertaining to the entire Caucasus region–adding that "it is not a secret that the moving force which can resolve the problem is the settlement of the Karabakh conflict."

Paskaleva said that the new television program became possible mainly because of recent changes within the national television of Armenia and its new director Tigran Naghdalian.

"Aspect" will be the only Russian-language TV program in Armenia and is scheduled to be broadcast twice a month.

The first political figure to featured in Paskaleva’s program is scheduled to be presidential advisor and member of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation’s Executive Council of Vahan Hovanessian.

"We’ll begin where we left off," Paskaleva noted–adding that the last installment of her series on the Karabakh movement was based on Hovanessian’s memoirs about Karabakh which he worked on while serving in prison.

Paskaleva said she wanted representatives from different countries in the region to participate in the program

"I will be glad to see representatives of Turkey–Azerbaijan–Georgia–Iran and–of course–representatives of super powers with interests in the region on my program. We should know what those interests are and what these countries expect from us," Paskaleva noted.
