PanARMENIAN.Net – Member of the European Parliament from France Francois-Xavier Bellamy visited the Yerablur military pantheon in Yerevan on Monday, April 5, Bellamy himself said in a Facebook post.
“Under each of these thousands of flags is a soldier who died last year defending Armenia in the face of aggression. Most of them were barely twenty years old,” the MEP captioned photos from Yerablur.
“Europe should open its eyes and finally come out of the silence.”
