Russian Army to prosecute soldier who is charged with killing 7 Armenian civilians

The Russian Army is going ahead with plans to conduct a murder court-martial at a Russian base in Armenia for a Russian soldier who is charged with killing seven Armenian civilians off the base. There is pushback from Armenian legislators who believe the soldier should be prosecuted by Armenia because the offenses occurred off the base. Details here.
A member of Armenia's National Assembly, Aleksandr Arzumanian, repeated the demand of Armenian authorities that [ValeryPermyakov be handed over and tried in an Armenian court, arguing the crime was committed on Armenian territory not on the grounds of the Russian base.
