On March 17, 2019, at around 19:30, a group of compulsory military servicemen at the permanent deployment of the RA Defense Ministry's N military unit refused to perform the duties prescribed by the schedule of the day  by stopping them. They voluntarily left the territory of the unit and, after only about two hours, returned to the service.

It also turned out that on March 16, at around 09:00, the commander of the same unit, colonel R.S., being in his office and wanting to leave the impression of a demanding commander went beyond official powers. A criminal case has been  initiated in the military prosecutor's office of Goris garrison under part 1  article 375 of the RA Criminal Code and sent for investigation to the Ninth Garrison Division of the Main Military Investigation Department of the Investigative Committee of the Republic of Armenia.
