Well, Yerevan definitly should have build a rapid tram. That would be 10x times cheaply, but would carry as much passengers. At least this is what soviet researches indicated back in late 1980s.

All stations execpt Charbakh were opened in the Soviet Union. There was only Russian Language that was official in Armenia. After the collapse the Offical Language became Armenian, but because of the cost of the metro, they didn't change the names.

Karen Demirchyan, the Chairman of the Armenian Communist Party,
convinced the Soviet premier Leonid Brezhnev in the following manner:

"Technical problems with the construction of the Rapid Tram were allowed during planning when calculations were done about perspective passenger traffic. The root of which lies in the hearts of the Armenian people. Each Armenian who lives away from his or her parents must visit them daily. As a result the passenger flow will be at least 1.5 times greater than projected. Moreover the republic is growing and becoming more developed at an increasingly large amount, sooner or later many of the Armenian diaspora (which outnumber those living in the former Armenian SSR) will want to return home. In this case, by 2000 our capital will not have 1.5 million, but 2 million inhabitants. We need Metro!"

So the Soviet Government built a metro instead of a rapid tram.
