Sisters Maria, Angelina and Krestina Khachaturian continuously suffered from their father’s violence. He exploited, threatened, intimidated, beat and raped them.
The sisters murdered their father in self-defence on 27 July 2018. Since then criminal proceedings have been going on for more than a year. Political and cultural events in support of the sisters are taking place worldwide. Their participants demand to drop the charges of murder against the sisters.
The participants of the concert organised at Bumazhnaya Fabrika venue in Moscow on 18 May 2019 in support of the Khachaturian sisters campaigned for the right for self-defence against violence and for passing of a law against domestic violence in Russia. About 800 people attended. The organisers collected donations and letters to Maria, Angelina and Krestina and distributed leaflets on femicide.
