YEREVAN. – A group of Armenia’s historians, men and women of the arts and letters, writers, and philologists expressed a concern over the National Academy of Sciences’ Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute Director Hayk Demoyan’s Russian-language thesis, and his overall activities, Haykakan Zhamanak daily writes.

“They gathered yesterday [Thursday] at a cultural center. The objective was to discuss the mistakes in Demoyan’s thesis.

Literary critic, translator Albert Musheghyan was invited to the meeting as speaker. And he presented the linguistic and ideological distortions [in Demoyan’s thesis]. 

As a result [of the gathering], it was decided to send an open letter to the administration of the National Academy of Sciences, and demand the dismissal of the Genocide Museum-Institute Director for his cynicism as well as for his serious distortions and disgraceful guidance manifested in the thesis,” Haykakan Zhamanak writes.
