“Hero of Our Times” award ceremony held in Gyumri’s Black Fortress

Award ceremony entitled “Hero of Our Times” was held on Saturday in Gyumri Black Fortress as part of Armenia’s 28th Independence Day celebrations. The ceremony, which was held for the first time, has brought together the participants of the “Hero of Our Times show” aired last year.

The “Hero of Our Times” program is produced by the Information and Public Relations Center of the Prime Minister’s Office and is a series of video reportages each a story about Armenians who succeeded in their career, entrepreneurship or other sphere of professional activity.

During the event, officials and guests handed out awards to the heroes, while the main prize was handed by Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan to Rita Martirosyan, who is engaged in tea production and has run a successful business.

The event was also attended by Artsakh President Bako Sahakyan. “Attending this ceremony, an idea came to me. I will invite all the winners and heroes to Artsakh  - the other part of our motherland and honor them again there. This is the way we should honor and respect the defenders of our motherland and love our country,” said President Sahakyan.
