Is it possible that a pilot of an SU fighter plane would
choose instead to fly the "kukuruznik" (the
simple Russian plane nicknamed "corn cutter")?
Surgeon Artsakh Buniatyan pours mulberry vodka into
glasses and compares himself to a fighter pilot. The
doctor has exiled himself from a modern hospital in
Abovian to this "kukuruznik" of a place, Kashatagh,
where there are no facilities for surgery.
"I sacrificed my surgical practice for this land,"
he says and drinks his first glass.
