Kiliselerimize saldırılar devam ediyor. Kuzguncuk Surp Krikor Lusavoriç Ermeni Kilisemizin haçı sökülüp yere atıldı. İktidarın nefret söylemleri, nefret suçlarını olağanlaştırıyor.Յարձակումները կը շարունակուին մեր տաճարներուն վրայ։Քուզկունճուքի Ս. Գրիգոր Լուսաւորիչ եկեղեցւոյ խաչը տեղէն քակուեցաւ ու գետին նետուեցաւ։Իշխանութեան ատելութեան խօսքը սովորական կը դարձնէ ատելութեան յանցանքները։
