“When I came to Armenia I could not think I would stay here for so long. The Artsakh people young and old, who were constantly under stress, were heroes for me. I was not sure I was able to endure that hardship together with them. But when I looked at the children and old people, I realized it was my duty to be beside them. They were able to endure that hardship. So I it was my duty to be able to endure as well,”  said Tsvetana Paskaleva.

Then I had to tell about the heroic deeds on the battlefield. Those heroes made me like Armenians and Armenia,” Paskaleva said.


Speaking of her involvement in the Karabakh war, she said: “I have passed this way with difficulty, it was stony and thorny. I was deprived of education, I left my homeland but I do not regret. This is my home. When I leave Armenia for a month I feel parentless. I have sworn in on the grave of the hero guys that I would shoot this films and I have kept my promise”…
