In November 2018, an event entitled Chronicle of Compassion Gratitude Ceremony organized by the Armenian Embassy in Russia, Aurora Humanitarian Initiative and Aznavour Foundation took place at the Maxim Gorky Moscow Art Theatre. The event marked the 30th anniversary of the devastating earthquake of 1988 in Armenia.
Politicians, diplomats, public and cultural figures, participants of the rescue operations of the 1988 earthquake, Armenian and Russian businessmen took part in the event.
Bowing to the memory of the victims of the earthquake, Armenians do not forget the dedicated people who have extended a helping hand to those affected, providing the means necessary at the time, just like in the years of Armenian Genocide. Through its history, the Armenian nation has not forgotten and has a special chronicle, referring to the people who helped others with their life.
