Today we need the active participation of each of us to defend against the war unleashed by the Turkish-Azerbaijani-terrorist tandem and to give a worthy counterattack to the enemy. Gagik Tsarukyan—chairman of the opposition Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP), MP, and business tycoon who has been released from custody on bail—on Friday noted this in a statement.
"I call on all members, representatives of provincial organizations of the Prosperous Armenia party to volunteer for the [military] detachment being formed by the party.
I will personally lead the PAP volunteer detachment and will continue to stand with the Armenian soldier—with all my resources and capacity.
Today, the homeland needs each of us. It is possible to win only with the combination of all the forces of Armenia, Artsakh [(Nagorno-Karabakh)], and the [Armenian] Diaspora.
Artsakh will never be part of Azerbaijan, and that is an indisputable truth," Tsarukyan added in particular.
