Yesterday, April 24, the DPR Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs Natalya Nikonorova took part in blessing of the installed memorable «Khachkar» (Cross-stone), devoted to the anniversary of the Armenians` genocide in the Ottoman Empire in 1915 and in a memory of the victims of a military conflict in Donbass. The event took place on the Sobornaya Square in front of the Cathedral of the Savior's Transfiguration organized by the Donetsk community of Armenians.

As Natalya Nikonorova stressed that the tragedy of Armenians was familiar to Donbass people – for the last two years thousands of our compatriots were annihilated by Kiev authorities. The establishment of such monument is a joint contribution to the prevention of such tragedies in the future.
