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”
President of the World Council of Yazidis Aziz Tamoyan is going to attend the funeral of well-known mafia boss Aslan Usoyan (Ded Hassan).
Tamoyan told ArmInfo on Friday that the funeral will take place in Tbilisi on Jan 20.
He said that being Yazidi Ded Hassan was born in Armenia and had relatives here. "In the Soviet times he kept coming to Armenia and supplying staff for the local textile industry. He continued visiting the country when it became independent, but no longer on business. He was a very kind and witty person," Tamoyan said.
He blames the Russian authorities for Ded Hassan's death. "We demand that they stop treating ethic minorities like that, stop killing their leaders, but, on the contrary, start protecting them," Tamoyan said.
