The President of Western Armenia Armenak Abrahamyan sent a message to the military authorities of Armenia and Artsakh. He mentioned in the message:
Days of mourning or a national tribute to the immortals?
“We were waiting for a national-military tribute in memory of the soldiers who fell in the honor of the sacred land of Artsakh, whose graves are partially in the Yerablur Cemetery (Heroes’ Cemetery) in Yerevan.
We have witnessed a political march of the Armenian authorities (Eastern), which doesn’t reflect the military actions of the soldiers of protecting the Armenian territories and the Armenian civilian population.
We, the military and freedom fighters of Western Armenia, would like to remind that it is necessary to organize a ceremony worthy of the fight against the death of our soldiers in accordance with the code of honor of our armed forces, as soon as possible “
