Sergey Movsesyan fought in the Artsakh War and was awarded the Order of the Combat Cross, Second Degree, for his years of service.

Sergey now says he is a forgotten man.

“Many top officials know me, but today? Those high ranking officials would follow how we fought from positions several kilometres back. I am not an Alexander Matrosov, but I fought pretty well.” (Matrosov was a famous Soviet infantry soldier during WW II)

Today, Sergey receives 98,000 AMD ($242) monthly from the government for his combat award and disability pension. The monthly rent for his apartment is 75,000.

He and his wife Karineh have four children in school. Two study at university in Yerevan. Their annual tuition amounts to 1.5 million AMD.
