ARMENIA TO BECOME AN EXPORTER OF URANIUM

An agreement between Armenia and Russia about research and exploitation of uranium deposits in Armenia shall radically change the status of Armenia worldwide, stated yesterday Nature Protection Minister Vardan Ayvazian and head of Nuclear Energy Department of the Russian Federation Sergey Kiriyenko.

Mr. Kiriyenko said that his optimism is based upon the agreement between the Armenian and Russian Presidents in Sochi. He also informed that a major part of the research works on the Armenian Uranium deposits has already been done. According to the research of USSR experts, about 30 thousand tons of Uranium are stored in the deposits of Armenia. Mr. Kiriyenko assured that more intensive research may reveal 150-200% of Uranium previously detected. The expertise is to be finished by the end of 2007. After that a joint Russian-Armenian enterprise shall be established so as to start the exploitation of the deposits. Armenia most probably will join the new Nuclear Energy Center, founded by Russia and Kazakhstan. This will give Armenia opportunity of becoming a producer of nuclear energy and an exporter of Uranium.

Referring to the issue of the Armenian Atomic Power Plant, the head of the Russian Nuclear Energy Department said that it can work properly until the appointed date - 2016. As 2016 is already drawing near, Armenia should think about constructing a new Atomic Power Plant, he said. On behalf of the Russian Government he suggested Armenia to undertake teh construction of the new power plant with output equal to that of the present one.

Nature Protection Minister of Armenia Vardan Ayvazian said that the excavation and processing of Uranium in Armenia will surely encourage the Government about the construction of a new power plant. Mr. Kiriyenko noted that even Russia, possessing large resources of oil and gas, is still enhancing its nuclear power system, therefore Armenia, being deprived of oil, should to the best to start its own nuclear power program.

APRICOTS, URANIUM, HABITAT


One may understand when the minister of defense Serge Sargsyan stated that by development of mining in the region of Lori the Republican Party will fulfill the idea of Nejdeh to provide a dignified life for the Armenians in their habitat. After deleting unimportant words we have the thought that if Valerik Mejlumyan pledges enough money, he will get legal basis and possibility to finally pollute Lori. Nejdeh and the habitat did not hinder anyone here, because for Serge Sargsyan Lori is the habitat of the people of Lori, and has nothing to do with his habitat. Meanwhile, Valerik Mejlumyan, who comes from Lori, stands a chance to live a dignified life both in the habitat in Lori and the habitat in Lichtenstein, as he likes it.

However, it is very difficult to understand Robert Kocharyan and Serge Sargsyan who accepted Russia’s proposal on production of uranium in Armenia somewhat easily and happily. Uranium is neither copper nor molybdenum. A uranium producer should keep in mind that it pollutes everything within the range of 200 km, and everything becomes dangerous for life of man, animals, plants and fish. Instead of a habitat we will have an all-Armenian Chernobyl together with all its consequences. Recently one of the newspapers has calculated that the uranium reserves in Armenia are worth 5-6 billion dollars on the international market. It might be a major amount for Armenia for one year but considering that this is a long-term program with far more long-term nasty consequences, it appears that we are selling the homeland, the habitat for a song.

It is clear that the surprise of the weather cancelled the super interstate agreement to export 200 thousand metric tons of apricots to Russia. It is clear that something else should be found to export. Jermuk is hopeless, Nairit together with its rubber too, and the molybdenum concentrate goes in another direction. We may only instruct Vardan Aivazyan to seize the agreement from Global Gold Mining and give it to Alrosa, and grant the right to produce uranium to the Russians as a fine for delay.

Next year trees may produce 300 thousand tons of apricots. But even the Russians will not buy it because even the Russians do not need radioactive apricots. Perhaps at one time Garnik Nanagyulyan worked out and tried out an ideal scheme of such deals, who was the first to give the mine of pearlite to a Canadian company explaining it by the interests of Armenia, then he left for Canada and works for the same company as a consultant and gets a bigger salary than the president of Canada. One day the experts on corruption will attend to his case, and humiliate and make this company bankrupt in some international court of law. However, since this day has not come yet, our leaders will give everything to foreigners expecting to enjoy their share THERE.

They forgot about one thing, however. Radiation makes plants and primitive animals grow to an immense size. For instance, the apricots that Hovik Abrahamyan will export will become the size of a watermelon, the last seagull which will narrowly escape from Vardan Aivazyan will grow to the size of a pterodactyl and will try to peck the minister of environment. The latter will neglect the prohibition to swim in the radioactive waters of Sevan and try to save where the last fish will have become as big as the white shark and will try to bite off a piece of Vardan Aivazyan. He will hardly reach his Jeep to flee to his habitat, Charentsavan. There he will find out that “wheat is the size of rosehip, and barley is the size of walnut.” Small Mher has come out of his cave and is chasing Vardan Aivazyan all over Charentsavan, who expedited the process of his awakening.

Armenia was exporting Uranium back in Soviet times yet. I remember when I was a kid I went with my family to Meghri and Kapan. On the left side of the highway you could clearly see a whole mountain was half way gone. My father told me that those were uranium mines. I remember to see big factories and couple of freight railway stations along the way. One could notice that the mines were fully worked on.

I guess after the collapse of soviets the mines stoped working and now they just need to be reopened since we still have alot of uranium there.

Thats absolutley right! Armenia is rich in Uranium and is one of the few natural sources we have to export. This is one of the reasons Russia still has a hold of Armenia and protects us.
