Armenian Government To Sponsor Ex-Candidate=?UTF-8?B?4oCZ?=s Treatment Abroad

The Armenian government made a decision on Thursday to allocate funds for further treatment abroad of a presidential candidate, who survived an apparent assassination attempt during the election campaign earlier this year and is now grappling with the consequences of a gunshot wound.

Paruyr Hayrikian was hit in the collar-bone in a close-range shooting attack on January 31. Doctors who have treated the 63-year-old Soviet-era dissident in a Yerevan hospital said the wound was healing well after the removal of the bullet. But they gave a less optimistic forecast for a successful treatment of Hayrikian’s nervous system which they said had also been damaged by the bullet.

Specialists in Yerevan recommended that Hayrikian seek correspondent medical treatment that is available only in foreign clinics.
