ArmInfo.The hearing scheduled for today, March 26, in the case of third President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan, has not taken place. The meeting was canceled due to a motion submitted earlier by the defense side to postpone the hearing in connection with the epidemic situation in the Republic of Armenia.
