Hayastani Hanrapetutyun[4] (also spelled Hayastany Hanrapetutyun,[5] Romanization of Հայաստանի Հանրապետություն, 'Republic of Armenia') was the official newspaper of Armenia,[6][7] until it was dissolved by Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications for financial reasons from June 1, 2023.[8]

The newspaper was founded on September 6, 1990[2] by the Armenian parliament as its official publication. In 2000-2001, the newspaper was converted into a joint-stock company with the President's Office, the National Assembly, the Armenian government, and the Department of Information each holding a 25% share.[9]
