Igor Khachaturov, the son of former Armenian army and CSTO chief Yuri Khachaturov, has been arrested on charges of assaulting a police officer at opposition protests in Yerevan, the Investigative Committee of Armenia said in a statement on Friday.

The incident took place at a demonstration on Kievyan Street in the capital on May 17. The man was presumably under the influence of drugs during the attack.

“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
