On September 2, on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Artsakh’s Independence, the Sarkis Dkhruni Student and Youth Union of Social Democrat Hunchakian Party (SDHP) visited Erablur Pantheon to pay tribute to the soldiers who fell for the independence and freedom of Artsakh.
They laid flowers at the tombs of martyrs as a sign of respect to the immortal feats of the perished heroes, regardless of their rank, position and party affiliation.
Addressing those who had gathered for the solemn ceremony Sarkis Dkhruni Student and Youth Union Chairman Vrastad Yeghyiazaryan reiterated the SDHP’s stance towards Artsakh. “These heroes, who chose to bear the heavy cost of great sacrifice, who we forever venerate at Erablur because of the ultimate price they paid to protect our cherished independent and free Republic of Artsakh, need to be assured that the motherland is ripe with a generation that will never tolerate foreign yoke on Artsakh soil.”
Later, the union members headed for the Tsitsernakaberd Memorial to pay homage of the Genocide victims.
