Time inexorably moves forward bringing us nearer to the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. And though today we can count the witnesses of this horrible crime yet on our fingers however we do not give up our faith for the Great Justice. And as the defender of our creative mind and constructive labour, security of our people and state we have appointed our Army and the Armenian Soldier. And the flags of our nation’s honesty will be raised higher on which our fathers with the light of their spirit have written: “Learn wisdom and admonitions…”.
We have understood yet before that book means thought, knowledge, progress, development, and the sword means will, resolution and strength, i.e. secure Present and Future.


As in 2010, in 2011 also the regiment headed by Lieutenant Colonel Ashot Ghazaryan showed the highest result and was awarded with the flag of honour “the best tank unit”. The facts speak for themselves – here the teaching of soldiery, service organization and discipline are on a firm basis.


On May 14, 1992 the youth of Chartar village, Martouni district of Artsakh gathered. It was needed to unite the healthy force of the village, to organize self-defense detachment, resolve defense line, ammunition, military uniform and transport problems. There was a need also to raise the people’s morale, to inspire them, to recall that their proud grandfathers never have retreated in front of the enemy’s superiority.


The 1877-78 Russian-Turkish war inspired the Armenians. In the Armenian press the essay writers were expressing their assuredness that with the Russian weapon’s victory Western Armenia will be freed from the Turkish tyranny. However Armenian prominent writer Raffi did not share overall enthusiasm having no hope on the consequences of the war. He was sure that freedom is not given from the heaven, each nation should conquer it only with its own forces.


Candidate of Philology science, Associate Professor Lousineh Sahakyan is doing research on our spiritual treasures which are left in Western Armenia. In our newspaper we have already presented her book “Hamshen’s Toponymical Names”. Today we present her new book – “Making Turkish the toponymical names in Ottoman Empire and Republican Turkey” – which was published in Armenian, Russian, English by “Montreal-Arod” in Canada.
