Thereafter they visited the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute, got acquainted with the documents and exhibits on the Genocide.
Alexander Vaynberg, member of the Federation Council of the Russian Federal Assembly, said he had Armenian friends while serving in the Soviet army who told him about the Armenian Genocide.
“I was surprised that they were so young but well aware of their own history and were in great pain.
I think all countries of the world, but first of all Turkey should recognize the Genocide of the Armenian people. I hope it will never repeat”, he said.
