ArmInfo.Parents of servicemen killed during the 44-day war held a protest action in
front of the building of the RA Ministry of Defense since the morning of August 10.
They demand a meeting with RA Minister of Defense Suren Papikyan
andcommander of the 4th regiment of the 5th defensive region of
Martakert Pavlik Kyaramyan, who is blamed for the death of their
sons. They are outraged that Pavlik Kyaramyan was awarded the "Combat
Cross" medal of the first degree.
After two hours of protest, the situation in the department
escalated. According to the parents, this happened after the defense
department informed them that Suren Papikyan was not there and did
not have time to meet with them. The protesters are outraged that no
one has received them for about two hours now.
Let us add that during the war 37 servicemen of the 4th regiment of
the 5th defensive region of Martakert were killed, more than half of
the soldiers were buried a year after the war.
