New details regarding yesterday's story about the group that were protesting on front of the government building demanding their military books to include information about their participation in April battles. In the latest interview, the leader of the protesters no longer mentions the military asking bribes. The story looks more like a disagreement around the definition of "participating" in battles. Protesters claim they were on the front line, thus participated in the battles. The military claims they had no direct contact with the enemy and the fights were in neighboring units, which is why they aren't listed as direct participants.
