New governor of Ararat region appointed

Rubik Abrahamyan has been relieved from the post of the governor of Ararat region.

The decision was made during the cabinet meeting on Thursday. Aramayis Grigoryan who was heading the region from October 2013 to April 2014, has been appointed to the post.

The appointment of Rubik Abrahamyan was linked to the then Prime Minister Hovik Abrahamyan, although the latter said the governor is simply his namesake.
