At about midnight on November 19, four Armenian soldiers were killed and four others wounded as a result of a “firearm related incident” in one of Karabakh’s southern military outposts. The shootings come about four months after a similar incident reported from another Karabakh Armenian frontline detachment, where one officer and five soldiers were killed as a result.
Yerkir Media’s Gegham Manukyan examines the growing crisis facing the Armenian military and offers a very powerful and chilling commentary about the state of Armenian society in general.
With Armenian soldiers being killed, hazed, and abused at the hands of their fellow servicemen, Manukian asks a very poignant and difficult question to hear let alone answer: How can a nation that gives birth to heroes of valor and honest hard-workers also giving rise to a sub-culture that pays homage to evil men that rape, murder or steal?
Where is Armenia headed if its public media, national culture and the mothers and fathers encourage the next generation to embrace the dishonest life–one of crime, corruption and individual self-interest?
