Artush Mkrtchyan, a decorated veteran of the Second World War, is busy these days. The 91-year-old says that every day he gets phone calls from journalists asking for an interview. The wife of the veteran, Vardanush, gladly answers all the calls and makes arrangements with media. And when Artush starts telling his stories about the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945), his wife gladly listens to the accounts told for the umpteenth time, adding some details. The couple that has been together for more than 65 years now is looking forward to celebrating the 70th anniversary of the victory in the war on May 9 – perhaps the most important and unforgettable day in their lives.
