Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan's message on the occasion of May 9


Dear people, dear citizens of the Republic of Armenia,

Today we celebrate the 79th anniversary of the victory of the Allied countries over fascism in the World War II, the Great Patriotic War.

With that victory, progressive humanity said "no " to one of the greatest evils civilization has ever seen: fascism.

The role of the Armenian people, whose more than half a million representatives made their significant contribution to the Soviet army, is invaluable in the victory. 300 thousand of them died, 107 Armenians were awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union.

Many Armenians also contributed to the victory against fascism on the western fronts of the war, in guerrilla and underground struggle.

Most recently, an exceptional ceremony took place in France, when the remains of the hero of the French underground resistance Missak Manouchianand and his wife Mélinée Manouchian were reburied in the Pantheon of the greatest figures of France. In France occupied by fascist Germany, Manouchian and the group he led fought for the liberation of that country without even having French citizenship.

He, as well as the Armenians serving in the allied armies, fought for the freedom of humanity and that contribution is acknowledged and appreciated.

The bearer of the legacy of the children of the Armenian people who fought for the victory over fascism should be the Republic of Armenia, which should increasingly strengthen its place and role in international relations as a responsible member of the international community, which brings its contribution to international stability and peace on the basis of legitimacy.

It is also for this reason that the government adopted the peace agenda, based on the internationally recognized territory of the Republic of Armenia.

Dear people, dear citizens of the Republic of Armenia,

Today we commemorate our martyrs who gave their lives not only in the fight against fascism, but also for the statehood, independence, and sovereignty of the Republic of Armenia. I continue to be convinced that the most worthy thing for perpetuating their memory will be a free, happy and prosperous Republic of Armenia. And we are moving towards that goal with difficult but steady steps.

Glory to the martyrs and long live the Republic of Armenia.
