Gagik Suriki Melkonyan

Fallen Soldiers

Gagik lost his father when he was still a child. Gagik, his younger brother and older sister, Alisa, were brought up by their mother, who passed away in January of this year at the age of 55.  Gagik’s military salary was the main source of income for the family; he supported his sister, who is a student, and his younger brother, Samvel (27), who has serious health issues. The family lives in very difficult socio-economic conditions, their house is need of repairs, and Samvel requires medical care. Gagik was killed while fighting against 18 attacking Azeri soldiers, from a strike from a Grad instillation near Talish. His body was found three days later; Gagik was buried next to his mother in his native village of Zolakar. The family was given $1,000 by the WOS campaign.
