12 Armenian families who arrived in Nagorno Karabakh from Russia and Ukraine expressed wish to settle in the republic. The families currently spend their holidays in their fatherland, Artsakhpress reports.
Artsakh Compatriotic Union called on Armenians living abroad to visit NKR and spend at least one week there.
“More than 500 families have already arrived in Artsakh since the launch of the initiative. Those people once lived in Artsakh and now have relatives there or even possess houses,” member of Artsakh Compatriotic Union, MP Hamlet Harutyunyan said.
Nagorno Karabakh Republic was included in The Guardian’s list of best adventure holidays for 2015, while British travel agency Regent Holidays organizes tours to Karabakh through Yerevan.
Around 200 mainly Russia-based families arrived in Artsakh on June 20, in the framework of the initiative of president of Artsakh Compatriotic Union, Varuzhan Grigoryan.
