“Today is the birthday of the Hero of Artsakh, our dear Robert Abadjian. I propose that we raise a glass for Robert, for his heroism and all of our fallen and living heroes. Let us drink to make sure that our lives and activities are worthy of their heroism, the sacrifice they made for the sake of the Motherland, for the sake of the Armenian people, for all of us. I hope we can live up to Robert Abadjian’s heroism regardless of what we are doing,” Nikol Pashinyan said and thanked Robert Abadjian’s parents for having raised such a brave son.
