One Response to ““Love” thy Neighbour”

  1. Hello Visegrad92;

    I wonder something, would be glad if you answered my question here or via an email to my personal email address. My question is:

    Now that the 20th anniversary of the Vi$egrad Genocide approaches (just like it was yesterday the 20th anniversary of the Hocali/Khojaly Genocide in Nagorny Karabakh, Azerbaijan), are there any concrete plans for an organized, well-publicized commemoration of the Genocide Victims in and around Vi$egrad?

    Any plans to prepare oral and written press releases or to air live boradcast from Vi$egrad and from Vilina Vlas in June 2012?

    Thanx for the reply.
