"Christmas trees will also be installed in the administrative districts [of Yerevan]. [But] there will be no solemn ceremony of lighting the lights of the main Christmas tree [at Republic Square]. Yerevan Municipality will not organize New Year events and fireworks either, there will be no festive street lighting, the municipality's Christmas fair will not be held [this year]," Karapetyan added.
To note, the Christmas tree acquired by the Yerevan city hall in 2018 will be installed at Republic Square.
