The winter conscription of 2018 was held from January 7 to February 14. And now, the servicemen of that conscription will be discharged. This was reported by Shushan Stepanyan, spokesperson for the Ministry of Defense of Armenia.

She noted this referring to the information disseminated earlier that the government has submitted a draft decision on declaring 2020 winter conscription and discharge of conscripts, according to which the conscription will take place from December 1, 2020 to January 31, 2021 inclusive, and the discharge—from January 7 to February 14, 2021. Such a period of military discharge, however, means that some servicemen will serve for a little more than the planned two years.

"There can be no issue of serving longer than planned," Stepanyan wrote.
