Shusha – great pain and hope for future

In the 1990s, the Caucasus region was a tempestuous place. Violent local wars took a lot of innocent and peaceful lives, left people without shelter and made them refugees.

 

Among the other extremely hard events happening in the mountains of Karabakh, the history finds the occupation of Shusha – tragedy of small beautiful town.

 

They say time heals, but the wound after the Shusha tragedy is so deep that despite more than a quarter of a century passing, history will always remember the tragedy that the local residents endured. Every year, on the 8th of May, people have immortalized the names of those who died and have remembered them with great honor.

Electrical safety warning signs

A number of accidents occur around the globe that involve electricity, most of which could have been prevented if an electrical safety sign was placed properly. People working with electrical equipment or high voltage tools are therefore required to exercise caution in order to avoid dangerous incidents.
