ArmInfo. Yerevan Vice Mayor Hayk Sargsyan does not know what reward the famous Serbian musician Goran Bregovic will receive for performing on New Year's Eve on Republic Square. "I'm not informed, because the company is organizing a concert, and I don't know how much will be allocated specifically for the performance and how much for the other services," he said on December 6, answering a question from a member of the Council of Elders from the PAP.
Mayor Hayk Marutyan, in turn, in order to receive a concrete answer, suggested to submit in writing to the Municipality. "An answer will be received if there are no legal obstacles to that," he explained.
