YEREVAN (Armradio) — The Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute (AGMI) has acquired an exceptional original photo of the heroic battle of Van, AGMI Director Hayk Demoyan informs in a Facebook post.

The photo presents the participants of the battle of April 2015 and the cannons confiscated from the Turkish regular army on these days 101 years ago.
