Every town and village in Artsakh has its strategic importance. Berdzor is restless again these days. The enemy's appetite has reached Berdzor, but only the appetite. The boys are watching day and night. Among the guards of Berdzor is Sargis from Yerevan, who returned to his homeland from Russia.
Sargis Iskandaryan (volunteer) - "The goal is one thing - the homeland. Let's go to Baku to take a bath, they say it is hot there. What can I say - we have come to win, we can not lose".
But before fulfilling the important mission, the boys must also be fed. This is what women do. Even in the conditions of the shelter, the menu is rich. Today is mushroom day.
Knarik Ohanjanyan (Berdzor resident) - "They cook cabbage, we make compote for the children, we do everything, we keep our boys fed so that they can move forward boldly. This is our land, this is our water, we will do everything, even I am ready to take up arms”.
You can not take any woman out of the town. They say the closer they are, the calmer and safer they feel. They are used to explosions, and they overcome fear with God.
Knarik Ohanjanyan - "They will not get anywhere. Who is the turk, he will not reach, we will bring him and bury in the gorge".
From the very first days of the war, there was a division of labor in Berdzor or, as they say, in Lachin. Everyone in the town knows when and what to do.
Narek Aleksanyan (the head of the Berdzor community) - “Both the people of Berdzor and the whole Kashatagh region, all the Armenians are here. We are ready to repel any encroachment to Berdzor, to keep the road connecting with Armenia”.
Davit Davtyan (the head of the Staff of Kashatagh district administration) - "We will not retreat a single meter, our nation must defend Shushi, the highway and the rest of the territories. The whole Kashatagh region, all Armenians are here. We are ready to repel any encroachment, to maintain the road connecting with Armenia. The people is full of spirit. Everyone is here, including over 60 people. We will fight for our territories".
Only if there is peace. Berdzor has everything to live happily, even Peace Street.
