Welcome words, and I hope this explicit criticism of the Church is not a one-off from RAA.

Samvel Karapetyan, archeologist, dwelled on the ongoing project of
facing the wall surrounding Gandzasar Monastery in NKR, in a news
conference on July 13. He says it's a criminal act against a historical
and cultural monument and the cause of this is ignorant patriotism.
Samvel Karapetyan says it would be possible to reinforce the wall
around Gandzasar with lime mortar which was used in Armenia in the
past. As to the recent statement by Archbishop Pargev of Artsakh
Diocese that the wall of the Holy See was reconstructed in a similar
way, Samvel Karapetyan says the clergy can't figure out anything, all
they want is to sit comfortably in their monasteries, meanwhile such
projects must involve architects and must comply with international
standards accepted for similar cases.
