Perch Zeytuntsyan: high and mighties are not touched by art

PanARMENIAN.Net - High and mighties are not touched by art, an Armenian publicist said.

“I have written several works on the Armenian Genocide. But movers and shakers pursue their own interests. Whatever you do, they will not stir a finger unless it coincides with their plans,” Perch Zeytuntsyan told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter.

“The world condemns the language of force but, sometimes, this is the only language it understands.”
