Today the fraternal Russian people celebrate their national holiday - The Day of Russia. We heartily congratulate our friendly country on a memorable holiday, a holiday that heralded a new phase of centuries of history, the beginning of turning points and considerable reforms towards raising the living standards of the population, further development and strengthening of the state.
For centuries, our two peoples have had strong and warm ties anchored on a historical, cultural, spiritual, value system. For centuries, being in the vortex of geopolitical upheavals, Artsakh has always appreciated Russia's invaluable place and role in our region, in maintaining peace and stability here.
Today, together with us, the security of Artsakh is provided by the peacekeeping contingent of the Russian Federation. We are deeply thankful and grateful to them. We thank Russian President Vladimir Putin for his personal efforts and undeniable contribution to the settlement of the Azerbaijani-Karabakh conflict.
On behalf of the people, authorities of the Artsakh Republic and personally myself, do accept our congratulations on this sacred holiday; We wish peace and prosperity to the Russian people and the Russian Federation, which has welcomed millions of Armenians with open arms...
