It would seem the struggles against the army respite ban have arrived at a deadlock in Armenia.
Students did not manage to organize discussions at a number of colleges, as was planned, reports “Hraparak” newspaper.
The supporters of the “In the Name of Developing Science” initiative held a discussion at the Yerevan State University last week, however they failed to organize meetings at American and Slavic Universities, as well as the Komitas State Conservatory of Yerevan.
‘Based on the information we have, they organized internal discussions at the conservatory without our participation’, reported a member of the initiative, Aik Zakarian, to the correspondents of the newspaper. When asked why they closed doors before them, he said: ‘I cannot say that they closed the doors, but we have to make do with what we have.’
The newspaper reminds that a few days ago the Ministry of Education and Science offered the students to work jointly until March on developing a document on respite for students, who have exceptional skills. The students are eager to finish the project until the end of the year, however they had not received an answer from the government until yesterday.
