Marat Terterov: Armenia’s long term security will be better served by strengthening economic security, rather than defining national security on the basis of the Tsarist Russian catch-cry “armiya i flot”
At the moment the plane carrying the body of the well-known mafia boss Aslan Usoyan (a.k.a. Ded Hassan), who was killed by a sniper, is in Moscow, President of the World Council of Yazidis Aziz Tamoyan told ArmInfo. To note, Usoyan was an ethnic Yazidi born in Armenia.
Tamoyan said that he is in constant touch with Usoyan's cousins living in Armenia and receives the latest news from them. He said that the plane carrying Ded Hassan's body was circling above the air space of Armenia and Georgia for several hours, but Tbilisi did not allow the plane to land. As a result, the plane had to return to Moscow the same night. Tamoyan added that there is no specific decision on the place of Ded Hassan's funeral, but Tamoyan does not rule out that Usoyan may be buried in Yerevan. "The final decision will be taken Saturday evening", he said.
He thinks the key reason why Tbilisi refused to host the plane is that the Georgian authorities beware of a big flow of criminal lords to Tbilisi, which may create an uncontrollable situation.
The Russian mass media consider that Usoyan's nephew Dmitry Chanturia (a.k.a. Miro) will replace Ded Hassan.
