YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–"They were students but they would not take advantage of their right and went to the front," the Dean of Yerevan State University Radik Martirossian said in addressing a July 14 evening of tribute for freedom fighters–former YSU students–and their families.
During the meeting freedom fighters were granted aid. In particular–each of them was granted one hundred dollars on behalf of an American philanthropist George Lailejian. The Council of Trade Unions of Armenia granted two vouchers to the health resort of Jermuk; the Fund for Armenian Relief granted food parcels. The University management presented the children of the freedom fighters with school-bags.
