Dear Mr. S. Sargsyan, President of the Republic of Armenia, and other Armenian Authorities:
As a journalist, I think it is my professional duty to bring to your attention this extremely disturbing fact, an unacceptable cruelty perpetrated, according to journalistic sources, by Armenians military personnel.
[Warning: content is very disturbing]:
http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=679_1437269037 A fact that, I'm sure, has been staining in social media the honor of Armenian people. In relation to this subject, I have already sent a letter to the Embassy of the Republic of Armenia in Brazil, denoucing this cruelty.
I would like to add that, as a former member of the Brazilian Army, I have no doubt in saying it: those men are not soldiers -- it's my opinion that a real soldier would have found aid to that animal. Those men are cowards wearing military uniform, and I'm quite sure that those are not the values taught to Armenian soldiers.
Ironically, in the year in which Armenia is remembering the massacre of 1.5 million Armenians (Medz Yeghern) by Turkey -- I signed the petition to recognize the genocide --, those cowards are treating that wolf the same way their people were treated 100 years ago.
I hope Mr. S. Sargsyan, The President of the Republic of Armenia, and other Armenian authorities have already punished those men, who brought shame to the good name of the Armenian Military personnel.
Honestly, I have no hope in receiving an answer from any Armenian authority in relation to this subject. However, as I said, I think it is my duty to write this letter -- at least, to ease my conscience as a human being and as a person who thinks animals must be treated with respect.
Thank you for your attention.
