Today, we should think more of his  self-sacrifice as a national message, at any cost, regretting nothing  to consolidate for the removal of the colonial regime, as well as the  legal accession of Artsakh, state sovereignty and democracy. These  are steps that should be included in our national agenda, for  creating the appropriate prerequisites for the founding of a new  Kur-Araqs Republic and fulfilling the dreams of all Armenians.   Having tortured Artur Sargsyan, the regime pursued the goal of  killing our dreams. However, Artur defeated death with decisiveness  at the cost of his life and was counted among the immortals. He with  his perseverance inspired and gave strength to thousands of  struggling.

On his private car he broke through  screens and delivered bread and water to the rebels. The authorities  then decided to use the factor of hunger and thirst to force the  group to surrender. Sargsyan was arrested, and then under pressure  from a group of Parliamentarians, he was released under a  subscription, as he suffered a number of serious diseases  incompatible with his being under arrest. However, on 9 February he  was arrested again because of "violation of the conditions of  execution of the preventive measure". After that, Sargsyan went on a  hunger strike, and refused to take appropriate medical care, his  health deteriorated every day. On March 16, in extremely difficult  condition, he was taken to the clinic, where he died. The death of  Sargsyan brought hundreds of people to the streets.
