Turkish journalist charges at Armenian analysts on Russian TV show

YEREVAN, DECEMBER 15, ARMENPRESS. Turkish journalist Faoud Abbasov has attacked Armenian experts during a TV program called Process on the Russian defense ministry’s Zvezda channel.

The program was dedicated to the Isreali-Palestine conflict.

Abbasov didn’t like the statements of the Armenian experts regarding Turkey’s role in the conflict, and said: “I would like to calm down the Turkophobic experts of Armenian and Syrian origin, who are reducing Turkey’s role”.

When Sargis Tsaturyan, editor in chief of Realist news agency, responded by saying why should someone like Turkey, when it is carrying out an aggressive policy, Abbasov stood up and charged into Tsaturyan and political analyst Gevorg Mirzoyan to attack them physically.

Only due to the interference of the audience and TV representatives was the brawl prevented.
