Armenia: Opposition Boycott Eurovision

The young singer has been linked to the outgoing president's family and campaigned for his successor, Serge Sargsyan, in the February presidential election. However, the blog asks if what Armenia could gain from supporting Sirusho outweighs the domestic political considerations.
