Recent official statistics about Armenia's demographic situation confirm that the country is being deserted.
Armenia's population decreased by 15,000 people in the first three months of 2014 compared to the same period in 2013.
The number of population reached 3,013,000 on April 1, the National Statistics Service reported.
The report also noted that almost 3,000 people aged 7 to 13 have left Armenia during a year.
The number of Armenian citizens leaving the homeland is also on the rise. Almost 28,447 citizens left Armenia and did not return during the reported period. In the same period in 2013, about 35,500 citizens left the country and did not return.
The demographic catastrophe continues to deepen in the South Caucasus republic which still is on the verge of a socio-economic abyss.
While the new government is being established, the extent of immigration has reached an alarming level.
The Armenian government intends to submit its new program to the parliament in May. Prime Minister Ovik Abramyan promised that his government will talk a little and do a lot.
However, Abramyan's government is not in any hurry to take effective measures to prevent mass immigration. It seems the government is waiting when there will be no people to serve eventually.
