The crisis in Armenia

Thank you for your recent coverage of the crisis in the Republic of Armenia. As an American Armenian, I am deeply concerned about the situation in Armenia, which is becoming worse every day.

There are an estimated 30,000 Armenians who will perish this year because of lack of heat, shelter, food, and medical care. Electricity in the capital of Yerevan is only available for one hour a day sporadically. Schools are closed for the second winter. Almost all of the hospitals are closed due to lack of electricity, heat, supplies, and food. The situation has passed crisis, and there is no end in sight.

The media have inundated the Armenian public with coverage of the events in Somalia and Bosnia. Don't my people deserve the same? Steve A. Baronian, Richmond, Va.
