“On July 27, 1992, MANUK SARGISI SAHAKYAN (MANCH) was killed during the fierce battles to recapture Mokhratagh Heights. He was a brave student of Commander Leonid Azgaldyan, a respected freedom fighter of the squad, who was always distinguished by his sharp and unmistakable strikes, much like an eagle.
In his last battle, Manuk surprised the enemy, attacking with his comrades, and the battle ended with the victory of our soldiers. However, Manuk, who was struck by a conspiratorial bullet from the enemy, did not live to taste the joy of victory. He was only 23 years old.
On this occasion, President Armenak Abrahamyan said: “Manuk was lying a few meters away from me. I will never forget Manuk.”
