Words of Gratitude of Major General Samvel Karapetyan on the occasion of 50th birthday Anniversary of Freedom Fighter Benik Sahakyan

Dear compatriots,

The devotee of Artsakh war Benik Sahakyan would have turned 50 today but unfortunately he was perished for the liberty and independence of Motherland saving the native country and liberating Artsakh.

He had a heroic life which is an important lesson for the next generations and the best way of their military-patriotic education.

Let us bow our heads in memory of our martyrs. They didn’t save even their young lives for the independence and freedom of our country.

Due to the exemplary devotion and patriotism of Benik Sahakyan and his comrades the long-awaited victory came true.

On behalf of the Administration of the Union of Artsakh Freedom Fighters, I express my sincere appreciation and gratitude to the family and teachers of Benik Sahakyan as well as to teachers of the secondary school of Kolkhozashen  community for upbringing such a patriot.

Honour and glory to the devoted and brave freedom fighters.

Honour and glory to the heroes who gave their lives for the liberty and independence of our Motherland.
