Vladimir Karapetyan, Spokesman for the RA Prime Minister, has commented on the defilement of the monument to Alexander Griboyedov in Yerevan.
“We condemn the incident. Such acts of vandalism must never be committed in our society. Police have launch an inquiry into the incident and the public will be informed of the results,” Mr Karapetyan said.
Last night, Shahen Harutyunyan, son of the activist Shant Harutyunyan poured red pain on the monument to Alexander Griboyedov in Yerevan. He explained his step was a response to an act of vandalism against the memorial plaque to Garegin Nzhdeh in Russia.
