During the event, Vardan Hovhannisyan’s biographical facts, episodes from student life, as well as stories from the combat path were presented.


“Vardan was different from his peers. He was quite mature. He suddenly came and asked for permission to take the exams sooner. Later, it became clear that he had heard of Vazgen Sargsyan’s call on the creation of the detachment and wanted to join them,” - says Arzuman Hakobyan, lecturer at YSU Faculty of Economics and Management.
