Former member of the Social Democrat Hunchakian Party Vasken Kaltakdjian’s responds to the actions of the Tkhruni

The Honorable Prof. Dr. Mr. Ashot Melkonyan,

It was very disturbing for me to watch the protest video on facebook in front of the Armenian History Institute in Yerevan that the Dekhruni youth or ganization has organized. It is extremely upsetting watching the protesters making demands while blocking the entrance with tape, yet not having knowledge of the Hunchagyan Party’s history.
