Words of Gratitude of Major General Samvel Karapetyan on the occasion of 55th birthday Anniversary of Freedom Fighter Vardan Jivanshiryan

Dear compatriots, the devotee of Artsakh war Vardan Jivanshiryan would have turned 55 today but unfortunately he was perished for the liberty and independence of Motherland saving the native country and liberating Artsakh. The teacher of PE and Military science dedicated his life to the liberation of Artsakh doing his sacred duty. Combat route of brave Armenian and commander of battalion is the best example for military-patriotic education of younger generation.

The heroic deeds of Vardan Jivanshiryan and his comrades-in-arms are invaluable. They didn’t save even their young lives for the independence and freedom of our country. Let us bow our heads in memory of our martyrs.

It is truly said, ”Getting over the idea of death one becomes the brother of all those who came and left the world as a hero of light, faith and sword ”.

The character of Vardan Jivanshiryan, each episode of his life has, indeed, useful advice for the pupils of the school named after him.

I extend my deep appreciation to the family and teachers of Vardan Jivanshiryan for upbringing such a patriot.

Honour and glory to the brave soldiers who built the liberty and independence of Artsakh!

Honour and glory to the Armenian army!

Honour and glory to Armenian nation that confidently makes its future!

Samvel Karapetyan

The Head of the Union of Artsakh Freedom Fighters

Major General of Defense Army
