YEREVAN. – Hraparak daily of the Republic of Armenia (RA) writes: The [opposition] "Armenia" Faction [in the National Assembly] proposes to make amendments to the Law "On the guarantees to the family members of servicemen killed for the defense of the Motherland," to establish new guarantees—including repayment of the mortgage loan, reimbursement of healthcare, educational, utility, and other expenses. It is stated in the explanation of the draft: "Acting legislation defines certain guarantees for the family members of fallen servicemen.
In particular, according to the Law ‘On compensation for damages caused to the life or health of servicemen during the RA’s protection,’ the families of the deceased servicemen receive monetary compensation, one part—10 million drams, one-time, whereas the rest—in equal monthly payments for 20 years.
Corresponding guarantees and privileges are also defined by a number of other laws."
However, according to the [aforesaid] opposition alliance, the above-mentioned privileges and guarantees are not of an institutional nature; as a result, many people have to "knock on various doors," and sometimes they remain on paper.
The draft will be presented in the parliament by Gegham Nazaryan, an MP of the “Armenia” bloc, the father of [serviceman] Abgar Nazaryan who was killed in the 44-day war [in 2020].
