French lawmakers François Pupponi, Erablur Xavier Breton, Guy Teissier, Valérie Boyer and Marguerite Deprez-Audebert visited the Yerablur military cemetery in Yerevan.
“I realized how many soldiers fell in the recent conflict in Artsakh and how young they were. I want to show all the Armenian people, their families and loved ones all my support. I will never forget their sacrifice and suffering and I will always remain committed to the Armenian cause,” François Pupponi said in a Facebook post.
“The fight they waged at the risk of their lives was a fight for their freedom but it was also one to protect us Europeans against obscurantism and Turkish-Azeri hegemony.
