Moscow mayor's office frustrating Armenian Genocide commemorative event?

PanARMENIAN.Net - Every year on April 24, marking the anniversary of the Armenian Genocide perpetrated by Young Turks in 1915-1923, the Union of Armenians of Russia (UAR) organizes a rally at the Turkish Embassy in Moscow.

Levon Mukunyan, head of the Youth Association of SAR Moscow Organization told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter that Moscow mayor's office works to prevent the action this year.

"We petitioned for authorization. However, no response has come yet," he said.

Meanwhile, as PanARMENIAN.Net came to know from a source in Moscow, the Turkish Embassy is giving a reception on April 24, 2008.

On the same day The Lark Farm will be for the first time screened in Russia.

As adapted from the novel by Antonia Arslan and co-directed by legendary Italian brothers Paolo and Vittorio Taviani in 2007, The Lark Farm marks one of the few international features to tackle the Armenian Genocide head-on.
