Almost 11,000 Armenians urge Armenian President to ask Russian President to change preventive measure against Levon Hayrapetyan

As many as 11,000 people in Armenia, Nagorno-Karabakh and the Diaspora have signed a call on the Armenian President to ask his Russian counterpart during the planned meeting in Sochi to change the preventive measure against Armenian businessman Levon Hayrapetyan, who was detained on July 15 and is supposed to be kept in custody for two months despite poor health.


On Aug 13 a court in Moscow is supposed to consider a petition to review the preventive measure against Hayrapetyan.


Levon Hayrapetyan is suspected of being privy to the notorious Kingisep criminal group. The Russian special services are currently investigating the case of Sergey-Finagin's Kingisepp group, which together with Alexander Matusov's Schelkovo gang, is believed to have done a number of contract killings first for businessman Georgy Safiyev (killed in the United States) and then for former Senator Igor Izmestyev (who is now in jail for life). And it was Izmestyev who said that Hayrapetyan was privy to some of the killings, particularly, those related to the Bashneft oil company.
