Zhirayr Sefilyan urges Armenian army to liberate positions lost  during April war  

ArmInfo. Zhirayr Sefilyan, Artsakh war hero and leader of the Founding Parliament movement, urges the soldiers and officers of the Armenian army to act independently and liberate the positions lost during the April war.  

In his message written at Vardashen penitentiary, Sefilyan says that  the adversary attacked Artsakh, killed over 100 Armenian soldiers and  peaceful civilians, seized 18 combat positions and over 8 million sq  m of territory. "This cannot be compared with the war of 1992-94," he  says, adding that the positions lost on April 2 were soaked with  Armenian soldiers' blood and that the adversary treated these  positions as part of an unassailable Armenian fortress. 

Sefilyan says that now the national dignity of Armenian people is  hurt and this can reduce the combat efficiency of the Armenian army.  "The leader of the ruling colonial regime in Armenia, Serzh Sargsyan,  not only entered into an agreed war with the deliberate intention to  cede the liberated territories, but also forbade restoration of the  country's territorial integrity, thereby helping the adversary to  occupy our territories and evade responsibility to international  structures. Consequently, he committed high treason, as a result of  which the army and the people that won over 20 years ago not only  suffered territorial and human losses, but also received a heavy blow  on their national dignity," he stresses. 

The politician also thinks that the relative calm on the Line of  Contact of Artsakh and Azerbaijani troops is deceptive, because he  thinks the adversary would be eager to seize Artsakh and Armenia.  "Encouraged by the occupied territory, Baku will keep preparing for  implementation of its plan. So, the Armenian army should hurry to  retrieve the lost territories," he says. He adds that the current  irregular situation needs irregular solutions. "You should act  independently instead of waiting for the permit or order of traitor  Serzh Sargsyan," he says. 

To note, earlier Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said in an  interview with Armenian TV companies that the Armenian side lost 800  hectares of land in the four-day war. He added that the specified  territory is of no tactical and strategic importance. He stressed  that the Armenian troops could retrieve the previous positions, but  the preference was given to saving lives.      

To recall, Zhirayr Sefilyan is currently under arrest. He is charged  with illegal keeping, use and transportation of arms. Following his  arrest, the Sasna Tsrer (Daredevils of Sassoon) group seized a police  compound in Yerevan. They demanded releasing Sefilyan.
