Armenia celebrates 21st anniversary of independence

2012-09-21 12:31

Today, September 21, Armenia celebrates the 21st anniversary of the country's independence, the MIR reported. It should be noted that this day is always celebrated modestly and without great pomp, but not only in the capital, but in all the cities, villages and in the Diaspora throughout the world.


This morning the country's leadership headed by President Serzh Sargsyan intends visit the Pantheon "Yerablur" in Yerevan and will pay tribute to the victims of the war in Nagorno-Karabakh, as well as to the outstanding figures of Armenia. President of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic Bako Sahakyan and the NKR Defense Minister Movses Hakobyan have arrived in Yerevan to participate in the festivities, the Armenia Today reports.

In the evening, a concert will be held in the main square of the country - the Republic Square. The concert will start at 21.00. It is also expected that the world-famous ensemble "Forbidden Saints" will take part in the concert. The evening will end with fireworks.

Recall, Armenia adopted the Declaration of Independence at the session of the Supreme Council of Armenia on August 23, 1990. The Armenian Soviet Socialist Republic was renamed into the Republic of Armenia. On September 21, 1991, there was held a referendum on secession from the Soviet Union and the establishment of an independent state. 94.99% of the citizens of the Republic, who took part in it, voted for this. Two days later, the Supreme Council proclaimed Armenia an independent, self-sufficient state.
