The fourth part of the series of interviews of Armenia ex-president Serzh Sargsyan on the 2016 April war has been presented.
Why have we lost so many lives of our soldiers and officers?
I sincerely regret that it was not possible to save everyone. My thoughts and emotions are with every family. It is unrealistic to expect that during hostilities we will not have casualties. But we all saw how heroically our soldiers and commanders fought. 75 of them remained forever young, defending Artsakh and Armenia.
How do you assess the actions of the Armenian army?
According to external intelligence data, we inflicted losses on the enemy four to five times as many soldiers, officers, including senior officers and weapons. Even our opponents have recently started writing that the Azerbaijanis, according to their data, have lost more than 1,000 soldiers. After such a great battle and victory, we were full of sadness and grief, but at the same time we were proud of our soldiers, officers, generals, all those who participated in this heroic battle.
