On October 25, the participants of the Freedom to Vahagn Chakhalian sit-down strike sent an open letter to Chairman of the Union of Armenians in Russia, Ara Abrahamian, proposing him supporting release of member of Presidency of the the United Javakhk democratic bloc, Vahagn Chakhalian, from "clutches of violence ruling in Armenia." Emphasizing A.Abrahamian's rich experience of releasing and returning to the homeland Armenia's and Russia's citizens sentenced on the charge of "taking part in armed coups" in African countries, the letter authors propose "also using such approach" towards Vahagn Chakhalian, Presidency member of the United Javakhk democratic bloc arrested in Yerevan with the absurd accusation of "illegally crossing the Armenian state frontier" and releasing the national figure from clutches of violence ruling in Armenia." The participants of Freedom to Vahagn Chakhalian sit-down strike ask Ara Abrahamian to take into consideration the fact that "the efforts of RA National Assembly 17 Deputies, a number of parties and organizations to release V.Chakhalian from custody are perceived by RA law enforcement body heads and their chiefs as "a voice in the wilderness," the letter read.
