Meanwhile, according to the Armenian media, Tadevosyan, the commander of the Megri military unit on the border with Iran and Gevorkyan, the commander of the Megraba military unit on the border with Azerbaijan, were dismissed due to refusal to fulfill the instructions of the leadership of the Defense Ministry to ensure votes for Acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s ‘Civil Contract’ party in the early parliamentary election to be held in Armenia on June 20, 2021.
