YEREVAN (YERKIR) – An event, organized by the Armenian Revolutionary
Federation (ARF) Supreme Body of Armenia, to mark the May victories
was held at the Sardarapat Museum and Memorial.

In his opening remarks, Supreme Body representative Armen Rustamian
said that the ARF is marking the victories this nation has won in the
battles of Avarair, Sardarapat and Shushi, as well as the victory in
the Great Patriotic War in a unique way — in open-air
celebrations. “May is our symbol of unity. Another such unity will
take place on May 28 around Mount Aragats,” Rustamian said.

Armavir governor Albert Heroyan, in turn, said, “About 3,500 Armenians
have shed their blood at this place to create an independent Armenia.”

“Sardarapat is an unforgettable page of our history, and every
Armenian feels stronger and shrilled here,” Lavrenti Barseghian,
director of the Genocide and Sardarapat museums said addressing those
gathered.
