Artur Sakunts made a post, ‘‘I’ve always said that the Russian base cannot be a guarantor of security. There is no mechanism of control by the government of the Republic of Armenia over the situation in the Russian base. So, let the Russian Federation embassy say a word now’’.


Let us inform that the beaten woman was Julieta Ghukasyan who was a resident of Ajemyan 26, Gyumri.


According to, she was registered in the housing department of Gyumri municipality and did street cleaning work.
