“Day-to-day problems of our military personnel are being addressed. Great attention is being paid to that as well. At the end of last year, more than 300 servicemen were provided with new apartments. To date, the state has provided hundreds of military personnel with apartments,” President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Commander-in-Chief Ilham Aliyev said at a meeting with servicemen in a military unit of the Special Forces of the Defense Ministry, ONAreports citing presidential press service.
“The process of reconstructing military units has gained momentum. In recent years, I have participated in the opening of many military units and camps. I observe a high level and excellent conditions everywhere, including this military unit. Here I was shown photographs showing the situation in previous years. Of course, the situation was very difficult. However, on the basis of my special instruction, the military unit was reconstructed in a short time and good conditions have been created here. Excellent conditions have been created for those who work here, and for those who stay in hostels. I should also note that civil affairs in our military units are dealt with by civilians, and this is also an innovation. Thus, we have enabled servicemen and their activity to focus on the main service duty. At the same time, about 20,000 civilians have been provided with jobs,” the head of state said.
