During a special event organized at the Yerevan office of Western Armenia, President of Western Armenia Armenag Aprahamian spoke about the difficulties of the first Artsakh war, in which he personally participated, comparing it with the last war. I remembered how I met my legendary commander and together formed the Shushi regiment, after which he began to train fighters and prepare for war. In his speech, Mr. Aprahamian noted that he helped Shushi to restore the spirit of Western Armenia, however, unfortunately, the Shushi people also did not stay away from the genocide.
