YEREVAN. – Georgia has always been next to the Armenian people, speaker of the Georgian parliament Davit Usupashvili said during a joint media briefing with his Armenian counterpart Galust Sahakyan (PHOTO).
The people of Armenia and Georgia have been struggling for their freedom side by side, and they would not leave each other now.
“We are standing next to you and share your pain of the Gyumri tragedy,” Usupashvili added.
As reported earlier, six members of the Avetisyan family—including a two-year-old girl—were shot dead, and a six-month-old baby was wounded in their house in Gyumri on January 12; and the baby boy died in hospital on January 19. Valery Permyakov, a serviceman of the 102nd Russian Military Base in Gyumri, stands accused in this crime. The soldier is charged under Russian law, with “the murder of more than two people” and “desertion with a service weapon.”
