“I am ready to sacrifice myself for the sake of the homeland. The Armenian people have never kneeled, nor will they ever kneel. The Armenian people resolutely, fiercely must stand on this soil. When we say we are all soldiers, when we applaud those words, we say one thing: old or young, woman or man, official or worker, today we only have one aim to further, we must be ready to sacrifice ourselves for the sake of our homeland
We will not give up one millimeter of land. We will not give up one millimeter of our rights. We will win, because we have no other option. The Armenian people must exist forever, the Armenian republic must exist forever, Artsakh must live. And Artsakh must be autonomous, independent, strong, and proud, as it is today and as it’s always has been.
Today our session is about about unity, resolve, and victory. Prepare yourselves for victory, prepare to offer yourselves [to the front], prepare for sacrifice, because this a time of conviction, of resolve and we are united.
Long live freedom, long live the Republic of Armenia, Long live the Republic of Artsakh. Long live the idea that we and our children will live in a free and happy Armenian Republic, a free and happy Artsakh,
Glory to Armenian Army, Glory to the Armenian soldier.”
