Congratulatory address of Major General Samvel Karapetyan in connection with the Victory Holiday, the 28th anniversary of the Defense Army and the Liberation of Shoushi

Dear compatriots!

May 9 is a historic day for all Armenians. It has long been the symbol of victories of our heroic people. We celebrate this national day as the Triple Holiday, first of all remembering and honoring all those who have consciously died in the battlefields of both the Great Patriotic War and the Artsakh Liberation War, all those who have become disabled for the independence of Motherland and who set an example for the younger generation with their modest presence.

I would like to express my special respect to all the servicemen of the Defense Army and to the thousands of members of the Union of Artsakh Freedom Fighters. I am convinced that both yesterday, today and from now on we will be determined not only to keep and protect what we have today, but also to expand it in case of  necessity.

Dear veterans of the Great Patriotic and Artsakh Liberation wars,

Respected generals, officers and soldiers of the Defense Army,

On behalf of the Administration of the Union and personally myself I cordially congratulate you on the Victory Holiday, the 28th anniversary of the  Defense Army and the Liberation of Shoushi.

I once again congratulate all of us with this glorious Triple Day.

The Head of the Union of Artsakh Freedom Fighters,

Major-General

Samvel Karapetyan
