Yerevan police arrest Russian suspected of desertion at Moscow’s request

In Yerevan, at the request of Moscow, a Russian citizen was arrested, “suspected of desertion”, reported on the website of the Ministry of Interior of Armenia.

The report states that it is 23-year-old Yury T., who was arrested on April 7 on Nar-Dos Street, arrested and taken to the Marash Internal Affairs Department. Information on this subject was transmitted to the prosecutor’s office and to the “initiators of the search”.

Yerevan police added that the wanted Russian had been identified “thanks to the measures taken by employees of the Marash police department”. A restrictive measure was applied to the detainee, which the Armenian Interior Ministry describes as “military surveillance”.

Armenian law enforcement agencies cooperate with their Russian counterparts, helping to search and detain suspects in various crimes. So, about a month ago, at Yerevan Zvartnots airport, held Russian citizen Nikita Kamensky, put on the wanted list in his native country for vandalism.

Press Service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Armenia informed that Kamensky, 31, flew to Yerevan from Istanbul and was immediately taken to the airport police department, where he was ordered not to leave. The vandalism case against the Russian was opened in the summer of 2022 because of the anti-war inscriptions he made in the neighborhood of the Timiryazevskaya metro station in Moscow.

In addition, administrative protocols were drawn up against Kamensky under articles about discrediting the Russian Armed Forces and petty hooliganism. In July, his apartment was searched and in early December he was put on the wanted list.
