Pashinyan: Our goal is that the payments of the Military Insurance  Fund concern cases incurred during combat duty back in the 1990

ArmInfo. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan meet with mothers of the soldieries, who gathered at the government building demanding compensation, similar  to payments to victims of the events of March 1-2, 2008.

According to the Prime Minister, the Military Insurance Fund was  created just in order to provide financial assistance to these  people. The Prime Minister recalled that one of the first decisions  of the government was the decision that the Fund had made payments  for cases that took place during combat duty since January 1, 2014.  Previously, payments were made for cases that occurred after January  1, 2017. "After 7-8 months, a decision was made on payments for cases  covering the period after January 1, 2008." In just a year, we went  down 9 years. Our goal is that the payments of the Military Insurance  Fund concern cases incurred during combat duty back in the 1990", he  said.

To achieve this goal, according to Pashinyan, it is necessary to  reduce the shadow sector in the labor market. This year, more than 65  thousand new registered jobs have already been fixed, as a result,  payments to the "1000 AMD" fund have also increased. The Prime  Minister asked the mothers of the deceased servicemen to give an  opportunity to solve problems one by one. "Now, as prime minister, I  am ashamed that I am discussing such a question because I believe  that this issue should have been resolved long ago. I apologize to  all of you that your question has not yet been resolved," Pashinyan  said.

To recall, on September 5, the Armenian government decided to send  AMD 720 million to payments to victims and victims of the March 1-2  riots. Compensation to the legal successors of those killed as a  result of the events of March 1-2, 2008 will amount to 30 million  drams (almost $ 63 thousand), persons who received serious harm to  their health - 15 million drams (about $ 31.5 thousand), and moderate  severity - 5 million drams (almost $ 10.5 thousand). At the same  time, Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan emphasized that this  is not compensation, but assistance to the victims of the riots on  March 1-2, 2008. To note, the Military Insurance Fund has been  operating since January 2017. Since then, some 370 military personnel  and their families have received compensation. About 1.3 billion  drams (about 2.7 million dollars) were paid.
