PanARMENIAN.Net - 75-year old Georgian woman left Armenia without the internet connection for several hours. The woman has already acknowledged her guilt in damaging the fiber-optic cable of Georgian Railway Telecom Ltd, which became a reason for loss of internet connection in Armenia and major part of Georgia on March 28.
