STEPANAKERT, FEBRUARY 26, ARTSAKHPRESS: As “Artsakhpress” reports, residents of the community, participants of the operation, led by the community leader Boris Ghahramanyan, laid flowers at the memorial eternalizing the memory of the fallen freedom fighters.
In an interview with “Artsakhpress”, Boris Ghahramanyan, said that after the liberation of the village, mostly refugees from Sumgait, Kirovabad and Baku settled in Ivanyan. There are more than thirty families in the community who have refugee status; there are also settlers. The military actions lasted two days, and on the third day Ivanyan was liberated.
“During those years in order to reach Stepanakert we had to cross mountains because the enemy blocked the road. Ivanyan's liberation was a necessity at that time. In those days, the enemy allowed themselves all kinds of atrocities. During the attacks, in addition to human casualties, the community was devastated, but today we have a new Ivanyan community, which is growing and developing day by day,” said the community leader.
