Nagorno Karabakh Ministry of Defence new head assigned

On 14 December, a new head of the Ministry of Defence (called officially Defence Army) was assigned by Presential decree. The new Head of the Ministry, Major General Karen Abrahamyan is a native of Hadrut region, and has held several prominant positions within the military over the years such as the head of the Military Engineering Division in Armenia’s Armed Forces and the vice minister of the Defence Ministry.

The outgoing Minister, Levon Mnatsakanyan, was assigned as head of the Ministry of Emergency Situation (MES) of Nagorno Karabakh. Although some see this as a discouraging move, the MES would essentially be in charge of all civilian defence preparation matters and a link between civilian and military logicistical affairs.
