A few days ago, on May 9, on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Second World War, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan published a photo of his grandfather on his Facebook page on the occasion of the liberation of Shushi and the establishment of the Artsakh Defense Army.

"Nikol Pashinyan Arakel, 1913-1943. He served in the 554th Rifle Regiment of the 138th Rifle Division. Eternal glory to those who fell for the homeland. ”

After this post, discussions started in the media that Nikol Pashinyan's grandfather had cooperated with Nazi Germany. Using the website of the Memorial created by the Russian Ministry of Defense (archived here for the victims of the Great Patriotic War, missing and dead), they found the name of Nikol Pashinyan's grandfather, who also died in 1943, and the reason for retirement was " Cooperation with the enemy. ”

However, the Information Control Center informs that there is a difference between the names of the mentioned person and the surnames of Nikol Pashinyan's grandfather. Prime Minister Pashinyan's grandfather, Nikol Arakeli Pashinyan, fought in the USSR army and disappeared. The information about this is published in "Memorial". Meanwhile, the media confused him with Nikol Vardan Pashinyan's statement, which reads: "He fought in Garegin Nzhdeh's legion and supported Nazi Germany."

After the news was published, the media also denied the information, but it is noteworthy that a few days later, a number of Russian media outlets, including mk.ru, lenta.ru, rosbalt.ru, gazeta.ru, and others, continue to spread this pseudonym.

Thus, it should be noted that the information about Prime Minister Pashinyan's grandfather that he supported the German army does not correspond to reality.
