Students of Armenian challenge protest against possible abolition of  postponement from army

Students of Armenian challenge protest against possible abolition of  postponement from army

ArmInfo. Several dozen students of Armenian universities today staged a protest action in front of the building of the RA Ministry of Education and Science, demanding to remove the bill on abolishing the postponement for university students from the army.

Students, in particular, believe that the adoption of such a law will  hit hard on Armenian science. Robert Sukiasyan, head of the Higher  Education Department of the Ministry of Education and Science, came  to protest. He advised students to meet and discuss this issue in  detail.

It should be noted that the other day the Armenian Defense Minister  Vigen Sargsyan acquainted the public of the country with this bill,  which, in particular, provides for the abolition of the deferment  from the army for students of Armenian universities. <In the year, 5  to 6 thousand male students enter the universities of Armenia, of  which about 700-800 people are deferred from compulsory military  service. The key rationale is that continuous training is more  qualitative. It turns out that we, a person received at lower rates,  with weaker knowledge put in even more difficult situation, because  we interrupt the cycle, while those who scored 1-2 points more give a  delay of 4 years>, - explained the minister.

At the same time, Sarkisian stated that only 16-17% of those citizens  who were not drafted for military service in 18 years serve in the  Armed Forces in the future. According to him, this indicates that the  first postponement from military service serves as a basis for not  subsequently serving in the army. "We are now working to remove this  omission, and for this purpose the program" I have an Honor "has been  developed.  Our policy is that through this program, those who wish  to continue their studies in the magistracy and serve in the ranks of  the Armed Forces of Armenia as officers, for years of service (in  this case, instead of 2, it lasts up to 3 years) were paid from the  state and reimbursement for studies in the bachelor's and master's  degrees, "the minister said.
