From the material:
Well-off Russian Armenians have long been preparing themselves a haven in Armenia. Ruben Vardanyan sold Troika Dialog and transferred a significant part of his business to Armenia several years ago. Samvel Karapetyan with the Tashir group is also trying to settle in Armenia more tightly - now he has taken over almost the entire electric power industry of Armenia. Daniil Khachaturov, who owns Rossgosstrakh, is trying to sell the company to Otkritie Bank. Whether he will move to Armenia is difficult to say.
At the same time, the author of the material asserts that it is Armenia that is considered to be a “safe haven” for representatives of Russian business with Armenian roots.
