YEREVAN, JUNE 29, ARMENPRESS: President of still unrecognized Republic
of Transnistria Yevgeny Shevchuk has addressed a letter to Nagorno
Karabakh Republic President Bako Sahakyan, expressing his support and
sympathy to all people of Nagorno Karabakh Republic for the killed
and missed freedom fighters, Armenpress reports citing the official
website of President of of Transnistria.

Yevgeny Shevchuk said that Transnistrian people are mourning with
the Armenians today. "20 years ago the world witnessed a horrible
tragedy: the peace-loving people of Artsakh fell victim to the
aggressor Azerbaijan. In an unequal war the defenders of Karabakh
gave many losses, many of the freedom fighters missed. Many civilians
were killed in that war too, and the destiny of many of them is not
known up to now. For many years their mothers perish hope that they
sons will still return," Mr Shevchuk stressed.

Yevgeny Shevchuk noted that what happened in 1992 June 29 is a national
tragedy. "Despite that, the Republic lives and confidently develops
in the path of democracy," the letter reads.

Mr Shevchuk expressed confidence that as long as Artsakh people
respect the memory of their defenders and maintain their choice,
Nagorno Karabakh statehood will remain indestructible.

June 29 is considered Day of Commemoration of the Missed Freedom
Fighter.
