On January 28, the day of the formation of the Armenian army, a group of visitors to the Yerablur military pantheon in Yerevan showed aggression and disrespect to the editor of the NewDay.am news website Ani Gevorgyan, expressing displeasure that she approached them and persistently tried to ask sharp questions at the place where people come to lay flowers on the graves of fallen soldiers.
