Serzh Sargsyan addresses message to Armenian people on Constitution Day

Dear Fellow Citizens,

I congratulate you on the occasion of the Constitution Day.
The referenda on the adoption and introduction of the amendments clearly showed the stance of the people of Armenia regarding the kind of country they want to live in. It was an uncontestable choice and respect toward and commitment to that choice is our sacred duty.
The Constitution reflects our determination to create a social, law-governed, and democratic state. Much has been done for bringing the Constitution to life; however, we should admit that much has not been fully realized yet. Today, through our steps and our resolve we must be able to give a new impetus to further democratization of the country. The Rights and Liberties of our citizens enshrined in our Constitution must enter every home and every office, every town and every village; they must become not only Constitutional norms but norms of life. We can do it because there is political will of the authorities and sincere desire of the vast majority of our people.

Dear Compatriots:

I once again extend my congratulations on this holiday and wish us all to have every opportunity to fully enjoy the wide spectrum of human rights and liberties which we have predetermined through our own choice.

New report reveals climate impact of Russia's war in Ukraine: $32 billion damage over two years

Russia's ongoing full-scale war in Ukraine, initiated on 24 February 2022, has caused significant environmental and climate damage, severely impacting global efforts to combat climate change. This is highlighted in the latest report from the Initiative on Greenhouse Gas Accounting of War (IGGAW), which analyses the environmental costs over the past two years. The report was published Thursday (13 June) by the Ministry for Environmental Protection and Natural Resources of Ukraine in collaboration with climate advocacy groups. The IGGAW report estimates climate-related damages at $32 billion, attributed to activities such as the extensive use of military fuels and the destruction of landscapes and infrastructure. Over 24 months, the conflict resulted in the emission of 175 million tonnes of carbon dioxide - more than the annual emissions of a developed country like the Netherlands.
