The RA Ministry of Defense is now discussing the issue of military
service for Armenians who are foreign citizens, Ra Minister of Defense
Seyran Ohanyan stated in Parliament.
According to him, many Armenians residing abroad ask the RA Ministry
of Defense to allow them to serve in the Armenian army. The Minister
reported he plans to discuss the issue with his Russian counterpart
PS: Albeit with significant time delay, Armenia can have her own Armenian legion, following in the footsteps of the French Legion. Moreover, Armenia have had in the past such military unit called Armenian Expeditionary Corpus in the 1919 if Iím not mistaken. Having said that I do not see the need to ask the Russian military leadership on such issue, because such unit could be organized and established outside the Armenian army. Mostly they can be used in operations outside Armenia. In peace times, such unit can operate as a rapid force in disaster areas and can be used as a vehicle to NATO - Armenia partnership. In addition, it could relay on external funding.

Russia-based Armenian brothers return to homeland to serve in Armenia’s Armed Forces13:29, 21 June, 2019
YEREVAN, JUNE 21, ARMENPRESS. Erik and Roman Asadov brothers, living in Russia, have decided to return to their homeland – Armenia, to serve in the Armenian Armed Forces.
Erik told Armenpress that he is serving in the Armed Forces for already a year, and his brother Roman – 6 months.
“We have come from Russia to serve in our homeland, Armenia. It’s already more than a year I am serving in the Armenian Armed Forces. We were born here, this is our homeland, and we came to defend our homeland”, Erik Asadov said.
Roman’s negative opinion about the Army has changed after being drafted. The soldier calls on all conscripts to serve in the Army without being afraid.
“The military service is wonderful. I can state that I liked everything. Before starting the service, I thought it was going to be difficult, but everything is very good, thus there is nothing to worry about. One should serve in the Army to defend his homeland”, Roman Asadov said.
The brothers have not decided yet whether they will return to Russia or will stay in Armenia after the service, but they clearly state that their homeland is here where they were born.
