Armenia Deputy MOD: Servicemen involved in murder and injury described as positive


The servicemen involved in the incident were described as exclusively positive, and this is extremely rare. If any one of them was in a conflict, they wouldn’t be designated to the same military position for on-duty service. This is what Deputy Minister of Defense of Armenia Gabriel Balayan said during the conference “The Role of Women in Shaping Peace: Opportunities and Challenges” today, commenting on the murder of a soldier and the injury of another serviceman at N military unit of the Defense Army of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh Republic). According to him, it is necessary to wait for the results of the work of law-enforcement authorities and the court decision to understand the motive of the actions. The deputy minister declared that women play a bigger role than one can assume, particularly when it comes to making recruits or soldiers be tolerant. “I always talk to the soldiers’ parents and relatives. Perhaps there is a need to teach servicemen to be more tolerant. Military service implies difficulties that one doesn’t face as a citizen,” Balayan explained. On December 2 at around 06:50, in unknown circumstances, soldier Artur Ajamyan (born in 1998) received a lethal injury at one of the military units of the Defense Army stationed in the northeastern direction. A criminal case has been instituted (attempt of murder).
