Yerevan State University (YSU) on Wednesday held an event in memory of its students who died in the 44-day Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) war last fall.

Paying tribute to these fallen students with a minute of silence, the YSU students read their names and placed a lighted candle in front of their photos.

Also, chairs with the photos of these fallen boys were placed on the steps of the YSU central building.

Armenian cameraman and video editor Vahe Karapetyan also studied at YSU Institute of Pharmacy. Vahe, 21, who had left for Artsakh during the war—and as a reservist—, fought in the battles of Mataghis village and then Shushi city. He was severely wounded in Shushi on November 6, was operated on and transferred to a hospital in Yerevan where he died on November 9 without regaining consciousness—and just a few hours before the end of the war.
