Army and Society

THIS IS ARMENIA OF TOMORROW

The class of basic military training of the school no. 59 after Hakob Paronyan bears the name of Arkady Ter-Tadevosyan, and the “platoon” of ninth-year schoolchildren – the name of the perished in the Artsakh war warrior Armen Hovhannisyan.

REFLECTIONS FROM THE REAR AND THE FRONT LINE

On 6 April 2016 together with the LBCI Lebanese television journalists I arrived in Yerevan from Beirut. In the volunteers registration point in Nubarashen I witnessed that hundreds of young volunteers, middle-aged men, war veterans came, even the disabled. They were all brought here by the call of their homeland and blood, consciousness of responsibilities that they have to defend their homeland. And they came, joyful, as if they came to the wedding. Yes, they were going to the wedding of defense of the fatherland.

PAST AND PRESENT – NEXT TO EACH OTHER

For soldiers-liberators the most difficult, the most dangerous years of war at the same time were also the happiest. They always enthusiastically remember those years, miss the war in which they won. Maybe that led them again on the battlefield.

YES - TO CHARITY, NO – TO OSTENTATIOUS ACTIONS!

This question I asked the Dean of YSU Faculty of Oriental Studies Gurgen Melikyan.

MOTHERLAND - MOTHER OF A SOLDIER!

They say there are no miracles, however, the impossible becomes possible in the Armenian doctors hands. The other day I visited the wounded soldiers in the Surgical department of the Central Clinical Hospital on permission of chief, Lieutenant Colonel Sevak Shahbazyan.

RELATED WITH FATE

On the night of April 2 the guys of one of the north-eastern point were among the first who resisted the attack of the enemy, they were fighting under the command of Captain Armenak Urfanyan. The captain ordered his men to retreat, and he remained at the position. Only one, 19-year-old soldier Kyaram Sloyan did not obey the order.

STRENGTH, SPIRIT, FAITH WON...

We won because hatred, xenophobia, barbarism and atrocities are not peculiar to us. We are united by a common will of defense of the fatherland. After all, only a strong and sovereign state is the guarantor of our lives.
