THE 28th OF MAY: MONUMENTAL HOLIDAY OF THE FIRST REPUBLIC
Today is the 28th of May, Armenia is celebrating the day of the First Republic: the holiday of restoration of the Armenian statehood.
On May 1918 the Armenian regular forces and volunteers succeeded to have brilliant victories in Gharaqilisia's, Bash-Aparan's and Sardarapat's battels: averting the Turks' progress. The Armenian, who were subject to other nations before that have been declared free and independent citizens of the country with these victories.
This great victory of May had been prepared for a long time during the centuries. It's a pity, the Armenian statehood survived for only two years, nevertheless it has done great revolution in the hearts and minds of the people. The Armenian nation has adopted a new system of values with May 28: independence and democracy.
ASUE Media and Public Relations Division congratulates everybody on this great holiday. Wish everybody to be the worth continues of the case started on May 28, to love, to keep and to cherish our current statehood and to give the generations such Armenia which is worth to the 21st century.
