This is what leader of the opposition Prosperous Armenia Party Gagik Tsarukyan stated during a campaign meeting at Freedom Square today.
“We need to have a professional army, an army of contractual soldiers. Armenian boys between 18 and 20 shouldn’t be on the frontline. We need to empower the army so that we can take action, not let our Russian colleagues do the whole job for us,” he said.
