Nalbandian: Racism and racial discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance grossly violate human dignity and give rise to tensions within and between societies. That is why the fight against them became one of the main priorities of our chairmanship.
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.
