YEREVAN. – A total of 104 beneficiaries have received compensation after the recent war in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh). Varuzhan Avetikyan, Executive Director of the Insurance Foundation for Servicemen, informed about this at a press conference on Tuesday.
According to him, before the war they had 416 beneficiaries—with their families. "This time the funds were directed to the relatives of 104 fallen servicemen. The meeting of the executive committee of the Foundation will take place today, during which a decision will be made to pay compensations to several dozen more families. In the future, we plan to make several dozen payments every week," Avetikyan said.
He informed that the beneficiaries of the Foundation are the parents of the fallen or missing servicemen, their wives and children, as well as, in rare cases, their brothers and sisters.
To note that the Insurance Foundation for Servicemen has been paying compensation since the beginning of November.
On November 9, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, and Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a joint statement on a complete cessation of hostilities—which Azerbaijan had launched on September 27—in and around Artsakh.
