YEREVAN. – Hraparak daily of Armenia writes: The Artsakh [(Nagorno-Karabakh)] government has sent to the parliament a controversial bill proposing to apply obligation to the citizens who will refuse to voluntarily provide their real estate property—particularly building-structure—for use for the needs of the state during martial law. This applies not only to apartments and houses, but also to storehouses and other buildings.
As it is known, after the 44-day war, thousands of people of Artsakh have ended up on the streets, lost their homes. On the other hand, there are many people from Artsakh who have left the country for various reasons, but they have apartments in Artsakh that are not occupied—there are no people living [there]. After the adoption of this law, they will be forced—even compulsorily—to hand over their houses to the state for temporary use.
