The photos of contract servicemen, Private Hrachya Muradyan, 33, who died during the April war, can be seen in each corner of his house. It is the first time Hrachya’s wife and his three children have welcomed the New Year without him…Hrachya’s wife, Mrs Anna, says the only way to quench the yearning for her late husband is to ”illuminate” the house with his photos.
She cannot put up with the death of Hrachya: the only meaning of her life is to bring up her children and ensure their respectable life, as Hrachya dreamt of. The state provided a house to Muradyan family, who used to rent a flat for many years.
In fact, this is the first time the family has welcomed the New Year in their own house, but alas without their most dear one…
”We have a new house but without Hrachya nothing can make us happy. The state has awarded a pension, which we live on now. Soon I will look for a job: I hope to find one. I am an Orinetalist by profession, but it is not easy to find a job by that major, so I will try to find some other job and continue living…”
Hrachya Muradyan died on the night of April 7 to 8, while helping his wounded friend.
The last thing he managed to do was to congratulate his mother’s day on April 7. He then assured that he was not in the positions and was taking part in military exercises. Hrachya told nothing about the tense fights. Meanwhile his family was waiting for him at home: On April 1 he was to come down form positions and return home.
Hrachya’s elder daughter is 8 years old, while his small son is 2.5.
