De facto Nagorno Karabakh’s Defence Ministry received a new deputy minister today. Colonel Stepan Gevoryan was assigned to the position through a decree by president Bako Sahakyan. Col Gevorgyan will be particularly in charge of morale-boosting affairs within the ranks of the unrecognised state’s armed forces.
Col Gevorgyan previously the second in command of the 3rd Army Corps of Armenia’s armed forces, and was awarded a medal for excellent performance during the “Shant” 2015 military exercises.
Last week, the defence ministry in question appointed another deputy minister, Maj Gen Mikayel Arzumanyan, in what appears to be a reshuffling within military ranks.
