Melikyans on the “island”


Seyran met his wife through a mediator and started a family in his father’s house, but he did not continue living with his family there. Seyran and Tanya, a married couple with 5 minor children, have been living in a dilapidated house at the mouth of a gorge in Oshakan for a month now. According to Seyran, they live on an island in lightless, waterless and bad conditions. Instead of solving the problems in the Melikyan family of 7, they get deeper on the island over the years. In inhuman conditions, this family living in the heart of fear can only earn a living.
