About 80 donkeys raced in Vank village of Karabakh’s Martakert region for the grand prize of $5000 US and other precious prizes.
The event is organized by Levon Hayrapetian, a rich Vank-born Russian entrepreneur and philanthropist. It is with his initiative, that the donkey races take place annually since 2003.
Every year the Donkey race attracts high-level politicians and government officials from Karabakh. This year Mr. Hayrapetian has gone further and invited the world-famous singer Al Bano for added shine and glitter.
“I came to Karabakh, because someone called me, and I enjoy it, because this is my first time in Karabakh,” the singer told RFE/RL’s Armenian service.
And I surely enjoyed watching this fun video! :))) Go donkeys, go!
