Shabby Soldier Becomes the Advocate for His Army
The Armenian army was taken over by chaos and arbitrariness during the Second Karabakh War, so much so that even official images and footage depicted the disorganization among the soldiers. The Armenian Ministry of Defence released one of such photographs, which shortly became one of the most shared and ridiculed images in the Azerbaijani segment of social media. A waywardly dressed Armenian soldier, fighting against the Azerbaijani army, had attended a press conference held by the Armenian Defence Ministry. The soldier’s careless behaviour, such as picking his teeth and wearing sliders to the official event, put him under the spotlight and was utterly laughable.
The image, which reflected the real picture of the Armenian army, became one of the most heavily shared pictures on social media. Everyone commented on the pathetic situation in the Armenian army, represented by the shabby soldier.
