In 2022, the seat of the Artsakh National Assembly will be moved from capital city Stepanakert to fortress city of Shushi. Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) President Arayik Haroutyunyan stated this on his Facebook page.
"During my working visit to Shushi, we discussed on the spot the possibility of allocating to the Parliament the building that was started at time for the court instance and left unfinished, the construction work of which, according to my instruction, will resume soon.
I believe the decision has both political and practical as well as symbolic significance to redefine our historical and victorious city in a unique way." Haroutyunyan added, in particular.
