Yeganyan said migration comprises three main flows—labor, family, and permanent—, the respective balance in Armenia is negative in all cases, and this means more and more residents of Armenia are “settling” abroad. 

The analyst added that most migrants leave Armenia for Russia, the majority of migrants workers from Armenia are from the country’s provinces, and family migration and relocation are permanent.
