For the past nearly half year, Nelli starts her day by taking care of the flowers in her yard and speaking to them; this is how she feels herself closer to her late husband, Rudik, who loved flowers.
“Now, after him, I speak with flowers often,” Nelli said. “I’m thinking he will hear me through them.”
Nelli said she was always surprised by the contradictory nature of her husband. On the one hand, he was a strict military man, but on the other hand, a kind, caring husband and father of two daughters.
“And after him, now, I’m doing everything so that my children will not need anything; get sad too much,” she added.
Nelli had learned from her husband not to get depressed and to continue to love life, despite difficulties.
The 38-year-old woman is a hairdresser, and she lives and works in Stepanakert, the capital city of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR/Artsakh).
NKR Defense Army Major Rudik Movsesyan, 39, was a 22-year veteran intelligence officer. He had fallen as a result of the sustaining fragmentary injuries from the explosion of an Azerbaijani drone, in the NKR Martakert Region.
Nelli had last spoken with her husband on the day he died, April 4. Rudik had promised that everything will be fine. But at the same time, he had told his wife to “take good care” of herself and their two daughters.
