Armenian students protest against military services adjournment repeal

Students from the Yerevan State University (YSU) are rallying for the third day to protest against a government-initiated bill proposing measures to abolish temporary exemption from compulsory military service.

The students reportedly conducted a procession to the Georgian Government's building, ARKA reported.

In accordance with the law, the category of students with government-paid tuition fees will be stripped of their right to postpone their military service for studying in universities, ARKA reported.

The new law gives military service adjournment only to those students who seals contracts with the defense ministry and, complying with their contractual obligations, upon receiving bachelor diplomas will serve in army three years instead of the usual two.
