“The life and death of our sons weren’t a ordinary case and should be written in golden letters in Armenian history books,” Gayane Sahakyan, the mother of Adam Sahakyan, who fell during the April war in Karabakh, stated on Saturday at the forum of RPA Women’s Council held in Yerevan.
In her words, today more than ever everyone recognizes that the boys have prevented a major geopolitical disaster, disrupting the enemy’s plans.
“I feel heavy grief for the parents of all other soldiers, who fell for the motherland, yet an infinite pride rests upon me that my son, sergeant Adam Sahakyan was the one who on the night of April 1-2, 2016 being in the the 112 combat position in Jabrayil, leaded the battle by his unit and maintained the position for 4-5 hours, thwarting the enemy and inflicting major losses, struggled to the very last drop of blood and fell in heroic death. Let me once again give honor and glory to all them, who fell while defending the Armenian land,” Gayane Sahakyan stated in an emotional speech.
To note, the event was attended by Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan.
