The international community washed its hands and stepped aside. Archeologist, culturologist, Doctor of Historical Sciences, Professor Hamlet Petrosyan reported via news.am, referring to the destruction of another monument in Shushi. 

“International organizations write, send and warn about this but there is no result. While the Armenian society today unfortunately, is not an independent factor in preserving its heritage,”- the monument expert mentioned.

Petrosyan emphasizes that today we are not only in danger of losing our cultural heritage. According to the professor, there is a question of Armenians’ existence and the vandalism of monuments is one of the manifestations of our disability. According to the expert, Azerbaijan has adopted a clear policy and has a working machine against Armenians, which aims to absolutely eliminate Armenia.

“Armenians must find their strength, self-organization and a leader who will think and take steps,” he stressed.
