Hamsheni Armenians of Kyrgyzstan are to move to Nagorno-Karabakh.
Ruslan Karabadjakov, the leader of Hamsheni Armenian community in Kyrgyzstan, visited Armenia for further elaborations on the project of relocation. Karabadjakov will also travel to Karabakh (Artsakh) to find the most appropriate place for the dwelling of 200 Hamsheni Armenian families, reports Yerkramas.
'We belong here, in Armenia. For 250 years our fate drove us from place to place, from Ajaria to Central Asia. Eventually, we decided to shelter on our own land,' said Karabadjakov.
The initial plan is to shelter 200 Hamsheni Armenian families in Martakert region of Nagorno-Karabakh.
The project will be funded until Hamshenis will find the means of supporting themselves.
