“If May 8, 1992, was marked as the day of liberation of Shushi, the past few days will remain in the modern Armenian history as brilliant days of defense of Shushi,” he said.
He said the “Gyorbagyor” military operation of eliminating the rival’s reconnaissance and subversive groups, mercenaries and bands successfully continues.
