Relatives of the soldiers fallen during the 2016 April war are trying to clean the vandalized gravestones of the heroes at the Yerevan Yerablur Military Pantheon.

Prosperous Armenian MP Arman Abovyan expressed conviction the vandals will be punished.

He called on the offenders to turn themselves in to police.
