Residents of the Mushkapat community of the Martuni region of Artsakh live and create on their native land, not retreating before difficulties. This was stated by the head of the Mushkapat community Ruben Musaelyan.
The village, founded in the 7-8th centuries, today has 271 inhabitants, which sees its future only in its native land. “Until 2010, there was a collective farm office in the village. It was there that a community center was built in 2015, where a 160-seat club, a medical center and a library operate. 43 students study and are being educated at the school.
Since 2019 the program of the EU Educational Fund “Me” operates from Mushkapat, the strategic goal of which is to prevent the migration of young people from villages,” the head of the community said, adding that there are 16 houses in the free housing stock of Mushkapat and they will willingly provide displaced compatriots.
