In his note Boleslav Pirshtuk thanked the staff of the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute for their tremendous work and mentioned:
“What we have seen and heard, is impossible to comprehend as a human, and it’s difficult to imagine how it could happen. Those peaceful and innocent people who wished to live in their motherland were exterminated”.
He hopes that historical truth will be restored.
