On January 30, the Yerevan State University Foundation filed a lawsuit with the Yerevan Court of General Jurisdiction against the founder of the Hraparak.am news website, Hraparak Daily LLC, demanding to refute the information considered libel and pay monetary compensation. The reason for the lawsuit was the publication from December 30, 2022, with the headline «Financial Deficit in YSU». The university demanded a refutation, which was published with some editorial comments. This did not satisfy the university and YSU appealed to court. The lawsuit is being considered.
