As a person who prepared 50 people only for the liberation of Shushi, I can say that we defended our values ​​with our support, maintaining discipline and resistance in all conditions, and we reached our goal 30 years ago. What I want to say is, let’s go back to our values and prepare our children in such a way that we continue to fight, because this is our destiny. Our children are also our values that help us continue this struggle.
