Deputy Minister of Defense: Requirements for draftees increased  significantly in Armenia

Deputy Minister of Defense: Requirements for draftees increased  significantly in Armenia

ArmInfo.Over the past year, the requirements for draftees in Armenia, including regarding their state of health, have increased significantly. On November 11, Deputy  Minister of Defense Gabriel Balayan stated this in an interview with  reporters, pointing out that there has been a recent increase in the  total number of draftees.

Answering a question about the deaths of military personnel in  military units investigated under the article "Incitement to  suicide", Balayan noted that all persons responsible for these crimes  are held accountable. In response to the fact that during the current  year 9 such cases were recorded, Balayan noted that over the same  period last year their number was 10.

<The salvation of even one life is the result of hard work. Our  department extremely negatively evaluates these cases. Unfortunately,  in units conducting combat duty, one cannot be completely immune from  this. I assess this as an omission, and we have a lot to do to  prevent this phenomenon>, he said.  As regards the relatives of the  victims often voicing suspicions that in reality there was a murder,  rather than suicide, Balayan, without going into details about  specific cases, noted: "Based on my information, I exclude this. But  in criminal cases, perhaps new circumstances will be clarified.  Therefore, I do not want to make comments that may impede the  investigation>.
