  2. Anonymous, you must realize we have a mix of different ethnic groups in Armenia.
    There are about 65,000 Kurdish people who live in very poor areas, some Georgian mixes and Russians.
    Also some babies from Russia to Armenian orphanages for better care and to offer healthy babies.
    You need to verse yourselves on the ethnic groups of Armenia.
