YEREVAN — Armenia’s Investigative Committee has released a video showing the interrogation of Valery Permyakov, a Russian soldier charged with murdering seven members of an Armenian family on January 12.

On the 36-second mute video Armenian investigators appear to be questioning the 19-year-old, who has been kept in custody at the Russian military base in Armenia’s northwestern city since being apprehended by Russian border guards

It shows Private Valery Permyakov and the blurred faces of two men, along with a translation of the interrogation in Armenian subtitles. The Investigative Committee said the interrogators were Armenians and that an interpreter and Permyakov’s lawyer were present.

The Committee said samples had been taken from Permyakov to compare them to the traces and samples found on the scene of crime. Also, a number of forensic-criminal examinations are being conducted within the framework of the joint investigation. A psychological and psychiatric examination will also be conducted in the near future, as it is prescribed by law such criminal cases.
