Parents of Armenian militaries demand to name those responsible for their deaths

The parents of the military servicemen who perished in the 2020 Karabakh went out to protest at the building of the Armenian Ministry of Defence (MoD). They seek a meeting with the leadership of the MoD and Pavlik Kyaramyan, the regiment commander, whom they treat responsible for the deaths of their sons.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that relatives of the Armenian war casualties are regularly holding protests. On July 6, several dozen parents demanded from the country's National Security Service (NSS) to interrogate the Prime Minister, Nikol Pashinyan, and change the article against him to treason.

Today, a protest action is held by parents of the militaries who perished in the 44-day war near the MoD building. They are outraged by the fact that Pavlik Kyaramyan, the commander of the 4th regiment of the 5th defensive region of Martakert, was awarded the Degree I Order of the "Combat Cross", the "" reports.

The "Combat Cross" Order is awarded for exceptional courage, dedication and skill in defending the Motherland, the website of the President of Armenia explains.

A similar protest action was held on July 29. Then, the MoD assured that it would respond within three days about the meeting with Kyaramyan, but protesters received no answer, Vakhid Saakyan, the father of the deceased military serviceman, Zhora Saakyan, has stated.

According to the father, Kyaramyan must explain the circumstances of their sons' deaths, why they ended up in a combat position without a commander, and other issues, the "Panorama" writes.
