YEREVAN. – And at one time, many did not imagine that it is realistic to liberate so many territories; everything is a matter of time. Sasun Mikaelyan, Chairman of the Yerkrapah Volunteers Union (YVU) and an MP of the majority My Step faction of the National Assembly of Armenia, on Saturday told this to reporters at Yerablur Military Pantheon, and about the possibility of once again liberating Shushi, Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh).
"It comes from our country, our people being organized, the strengthening of our army. Regardless of everything, we, especially the Yerkrapahs, must support our army today, our army must be restored, and the rest is a matter of the future, so that no one should despair that we did not liberate Shushi," he added.
With respect to the many speculations about the loss of Shushi after the recent Artsakh war, Mikaelyan said that this war was different in nature, and the law enforcement bodies shall give a clear position on this issue. "So that we can find out what [actually] happened, they inform so that the people know what happened," he said.
Regarding the opposition forces’ accusations that the incumbent authorities gave the lands to Azerbaijanis, the YVU leader stated that he did not want to discuss politics today. "Our misfortune is that we must unite, decide, find out who gave land, who did not. (…). I have seen everything there, but I have no right to speak because it is under investigation, (…) justice shall always prevail. If this is not done, we cannot unite so that the people find out what [really] happened," Sasun Mikaelyan added.
