ArmInfo. Under the leadership HEAD OF THE ARMED FORCES REAR - HEAD OF DEPARTMENT Colonel Romik Margaryan, an open discussion was held on the commission created by the order of the head of the General Staff of the RA, dedicated to discussing issues of improving the quality and comfort of military boots purchased for the needs of the army.
As ArmInfo was informed in the press service of the RA Ministry of Defense, the meeting was attended by representatives of Armenian companies involved in tailoring, production of necessary materials, as well as importing companies. Interested persons of the defense department and military units attended the meeting.
The participants discussed the types of boots purchased for the needs of the army, the timing of their wear and technical specifications. Representatives of the companies proposed to develop, produce and provide samples for testing, in order to verify their convenience and quality.
It should be noted that back in January 2017, the then Minister of Defense of Armenia Vigen Sargsyan stated the need to improve the quality of military boots in Armenia. Then he pointed to the desire to bring their quality to the point where shoes in the Armenian army will become an international brand. Efforts in this direction continue, and new types of boots are being tested in the Armed Forces of the Republic of Armenia, which are many times higher in quality than those that are currently used in the army.
