T. Petrosian’s Memorial Stone To Be Placed Moscow


Jan 26, 2009

YEREVAN, JANUARY 26, ARMENPRESS: With the support of Armenian Foreign
Ministry and Armenian embassy in Russia, the Yerevan municipality
will place the memorial stone of the well known chess player Tigran
Petrosian in Moscow. Head of the foreign relations department of the
municipality Davit Gevorgian told today journalists that the drafts
of the memorial stone will be agreed during the upcoming two months.

According to D. Gevorgian, permission for setting a memorial stone
in Moscow is a complicated process as numerous outstanding people
lived in the same building. In spite of this the Moscow authorities
did not reject the initiative of the Armenian side. The work will be
coordinated by Yerevan municipality which is closely cooperating with
Moscow especially during the latest years.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
