MOSCOW, January 20. /TASS/. Chiefs of Russian and Armenian Investigative Committees agreed on a joint investigation of a outrageous massacre in Armenian city of Gyumri, spokesman of Russian Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin told TASS.

“Heads of Russian and Armenian Investigative Committees agreed on a joint probe of the criminal case against Russian serviceman Permyakov,” Markin said.

On January 12, a soldier of the Russian military base in Armenia identified as Private Valery Permyakov without permission abandoned his post with arms and cartridges. Later on, he broke into a private house in Gyumri and shot dead a family of six, including a two-year child, and wounded a six-month baby who later died in hospital. He left his uniform and footwear with badges and his submachine gun and munitions and fled the scene. He was arrested on the same day by Russian border guards while trying to cross Armenia’s border to Turkey.
