May 18, 2010 – 12:23 AMT 07:23 GMT

On May 18, 1992 the defense army of Artsakh liberated Lachin, now
Berdzor, breaking the deadly blockade and securing communication
between Armenia and NKR, the Road of Life. Liberation of Lachin was
a logical conclusion of Shushi-Lachin operation.

Before the liberation of Lachin, Nagorno Karabakh suffered a severe
economic blockade. Electricity and gas supplies were halted.

Ammunition, food and medicine were delivered from Armenia by civil
aviation, the flight becoming possible after liberation of Khojalu,
where the only airport in Karabakh was located.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
