“There will also be supplements for performance of official duties in order to increase the amounts of remuneration of military servicemen based on the assignment of the Prime Minister of Armenia,” the minister said, adding that this will help raise the amounts of funds for military servicemen by 10% on average.
In regard to this, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said the following: “The government has announced that salaries will be increased by 10% starting in July. With these regulations, we are helping make sure the salaries of junior military servicemen and of military servicemen serving in special conditions is much higher than was announced. We said salaries will rise by 10%, but the salaries of junior servicemen and servicemen performing service in special conditions will increase up to 20%.”
