The Defense Army Commander of Nagorno-Karabakh Republic Movses Hakobyan
explained to reporters why so many incidents happen in Yeghnikner
Military Station.

"The Officer is busy. The officers in Yeghnikner are on duty night and
day and don't even see their families. Overwork is one of the reasons
why the work of the officers has some weak points," he mentioned,
adding that the second reason is illiteracy because the soldier who
comes to the army from the society needs serious education.

According to Movses Hakobyan the system should not be criticized
because of some law-breaking officers.

"There are criminals, but the position is not criminal. We have no
serviceman or officer, who is not being punished for breaking the
rules," he mentioned.

As the Defense Army Commander mentions, there are cases when a soldier
prefers suicide to serving in the army.

"It is the result of commanders' failure when the soldier prefers to
die rather than serve," Movses Hakobyan mentioned.
