Roland Sahakyan, wounded in Artsakh taken to a patient’s room

Author Hasmik Hakobyan

Roland Sahakyan, wounded in Talish on April 3, who has spent almost three months in the intensive care unit, is now in a patient’s room. When they heard the news, Roland’s parents hurried to the hospital to see their son. Indeed, we’ve all been waiting for this.

“Thank God, my Roland is well now,” Roland’s mother, Hripsime Sahakyan told us.
We visited Roland three days ago and talked to him in the yard of the hospital. His mother, uncle and a priest, who regularly visits the hospital to bless the wounded soldiers, were there.
It’s been several days that Roland’s relatives take him out on a wheelchair. He can now speak, and most importantly, he feels his legs. The fresh air also seems to have its positive impact: Roland has a good mood and even makes jokes.

Despite all this, he cannot forget the April days. Roland, a three-month soldier, was wounded on his way to the front. He was driving the car when the adversary started shelling. Roland tried to get out of the car when he noticed it was getting more and more intense. However, he didn’t managed to get out, the adversary hit him.

Seriously wounded, Roland was taken to Stepanakert, then to Yerevan. He underwent 6 surgeries at the Central Hospital of the Defense Ministry. During the last surgery, a fragment was removed from his spine.

Despite these difficulties, Roland doesn’t lose hope. “If I’m outside now, means everything is normal,” he said when asked about his condition.

It’s been several days that specialists have been giving him muscle massages.

“You should write about this. I’m really thankful. Before the massages, I wasn’t able to feel anything. Now I can feel and move my legs. My relatives have been taking me outside on a wheelchair for several days now,” Roland said.

Roland’s mother is happy about the fact that her son can feel his legs.

“First we were worried about the surgeries. Now we hope that our son will walk. I hope everything will be fine,” Mrs. Hripsime said. She then added that she’d learnt about the condition of her son on April 5.

She had last spoken to Roland on March 30. “I was very worried. Then I learnt that my son was seriously wounded. Thank God, there’s positive change. My Roland is strong. I hope everything will be fine”.

During the conversation, Roland was looking around. He was especially interested in a young boy leaving the hospital with his father. Perhaps the child’s liveliness captured Roland. He looked at the child and said, “I remembered my childhood”.

He will also remember the heroic days of his youth. These days will make him proud.
