Artsakh President Bako Sahakyan sent today a congratulatory address in connection with the Victory Holiday, the 26th anniversary of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic Defense Army and the Liberation of Shushi.
“May 9 has long been the symbol of victories of our heroic people. History has proven more than once that in different periods, during ordeals our Motherland underwent we have managed to unite and protect our national interests, homes and hearths, families and children. Our people managed to do that due to their courage and brevity, the infinite love and devotion to the Motherland, their unity and unshakable will,” read the statement in part, released by the information department at the President’s Office.
“We always remember the feat of our heroic fathers and grandfathers in the Great Patriotic War, we have been brought up by their example, and inspired also by this very example we have liberated Shushi, ancient Armenian settlements and built a free and independent statehood.
The independence generation today continues our people’s heroic traditions; continues with dignity and confidence enriching the victorious pages of our history,” the statement read, adding “Let the May cherished victories be a landmark for our people and lead to new achievements and accomplishments. I wish all of us peace, welfare and all the best.”
