– RA Government approved the draft law on Making Addenda to the RA Law “On State Pensions”, according to which is provided to calculate the equivalent to twice the period of combat duty on the front line at the end of the calendar time for a military pension.

It was submitted to the Government also the bill “On Military Duty and Military Service,” which will replace the laws “On Military Duty” and “On military service” because this is an overall process – military records, compulsory military service, contract service on a voluntary basis, and the reserve system.

Within the organization of military service for the first time the mandatory military service and contract service are separated.

The purpose of the law “On the status of military units and military institutions” is the definition of organizational, legal type of military units, as well as of cultural and information departments operating under the direct command of the Defense Ministry.
