Chief of General Staff of the Armed Forces of Armenia reports  reduction of deaths in the Armed Forces

ArmInfo. Artak Davtyan, Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Armenia, reported a reduction in deaths in the Armed Forces. On October 8, at a press  conference in Yerevan, he informed about a 39% reduction in deaths in  the armed forces.  "If in 2018, 28 deaths of military personnel were  recorded in connection with the service, then this year there are  only 17. Of course, the loss of each soldier is an irreparable loss  for us and a tragedy for his family, but work is being done to reduce  such cases," - stressed Davtyan.

At the same time, he added that during the specified period of the  current year 11 military servicemen died, while in the past year  there were 22 such cases.

As for the contradictory data on the number of losses appearing in  the media, Davtyan noted that cases of the death of servicemen due to  illness or cases not related to the performance of service may  matter.  According to him, in such circumstances there is a need to  inform the public about this. At the same time, Davtyan assured that  the scale of Armenia does not allow covering losses, and the defense  department does not seek to hide these facts.
