On 20 February President of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic Bako Sahakyan issued a congratulatory address in connection with the Revival Day. The message reads:

“Dear Compatriots,

On behalf of the Artsakh authorities and on my own behalf, I cordially congratulate You on the Artsakh Revival Day.

February 20 has entered the history of our nation as a day that symbolizes the freedom-loving spirit of the Artsakh people, their steadfast will to live freely and independently on their native land, determining their own destiny themselves. In response to that legitimate, peaceful and just demand Azerbaijan carried out massacres and deportations, plunging our newly-independent country into a bloody war. Those years were extremely hard and difficult in the life of Artsakh.

Resisting to incredible hardship and ordeals, suffering irrevocable losses, our nation was never disappointed and did not retreat. On contrary, at the cost of its brave sons, due to the unity and heroism of its world spread sisters and brothers it was able to defend the native land. The memory of the Fatherland’s devotees will always remain bright in our hearts and in the mind of generations to come.

The passed years have proven that the chosen path was correct and irreversible. The Armenians of Artsakh continue to build a democratic state corresponding to international norms and standards, make prosperous their villages and towns, build new roads and water pipelines, flats and hospitals, schools and kindergartens, steadily improve the nation’s living conditions.
Dear Artsakh people,

I once again congratulate all of us on this memorable holiday and wish peace, robust health, prosperity, new success and victories for the glory of our heroic people and the Artsakh Republic.”
