“Haykakan Zhamanak” managed to contact the US citizen R. K. wanted by the RA National Security Service. As mentioned earlier, this person is Robert Kurkian, who resides in the US state of California.
The information was confirmed by us in our conversation. The following is a conversation with her:
– Mr. Kourkyan, Facebook page with a fake name Martin Avagyan belongs to you.
– The answer to that question is: and how many pages have the NSS and the police, have you ever asked them?
– The National Security Service accuses you of preparing terrorist acts in Armenia. What would you say about this, if you tried to collect a criminal group in the territory of Armenia or beyond?
– I have never had a group and I do not have the idea that I liked the people and they were terrified by the authorities. I have expressed an idea, which, according to the circumstances, liked the Armenians around the globe, and from that standpoint, if you look, I can say that I have supporters. As always, the NSS is distorting. There is no national security, there is Serge Sargsyan and the Republican Party Security Service.
– In your opinion, what is the purpose of the National Security Service?
– To silence the people, punishing patriots and people devoted to their homeland.
– The National Security Service has announced a search for you , and now you are hiding.
– No, I’m talking to you now, I leave the impression of a hidden person.
– Have you ever had problems with the National Security Service of the Republic of Armenia ? I mean again you have been in the center of their attention .
– No, I do not have it now, they have a problem with me.
– What problem do they have ?
– They say beaten, torturing people is their monopoly, and I say no.
– Mr. Kourkyan, what are you going to do now?
– I’m not going to do anything. I do not accept the accusations and consider it in the context of the freedom of speech and the intimidation and enslavement of the people.
– Mr. Kurkyan, you have one of your Facebook pages , two of them in your name, one by Martin Avagyan’s pseudonym . What is the reason?
– What is the importance of this?
– US law enforcement officers have come to your apartment and have contacted you.
– Yes, they have come here, have interrogated them and I have explained in detail how the people of Armenia today live in colonial and total dictatorship.
– That’s it. Then they left.
– So far, fortunately, people do not judge or arrest people in false and unfounded cases.
Kurkyan did not answer other questions. We have been able to contact him through Fezybak social network.
It should be reminded that the National Security Service distributed cigarettes, noting that as a result of the operative-investigative measures and investigative actions carried out by the RA National Security Service, it was found out that Armenian citizen, US citizen RC, in September 2017, has registered a personal page with fraudulent information by Martin Avagyan user on the social network through which he has published materials on the formation of a group called “Battleers for Justice”, tactics of the gang action, its members discipline, security, and privacy practices.
