YEREVAN, January 19. /TASS/. A six-month baby who survived the massacre in the Armenian town of Gyumri has died in hospital, Armenia’s ministry of health said on Monday.
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. 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.
