Yet Another Armenian Soldier Killed by Azeri Sniper

Armenia Blog reflects on the recent killing of the Armenian soldier, major Ervand Pashikyan (b. in 1958) by an Azeri sniper, and finds it especially disappointing that “virtually nothing is done after such killings: a few words condemning the act here, a few harsh words there, and that’s it. Then again, short of an all-out war, what can be done? Obviously, we have to involve the international community, but all too often these soldiers get forgotten shortly after all is said and done.”
