Babayan: Blog writer Alexander Lapshin unlikely to escape death in  Azerbaijan 

ArmInfo.Russian-Israeli blog writer Alexander Lapshin is unlikely to escape death in Azerbaijan, Spokesperson of NKR President David Babayan stated in a talk to  ArmInfo's correspondent, commenting on the Belarusian General  Prosecutor's Office decision to extradite blog writer Lapshin to  Baku. "Lapshin's extradition to Azerbaijan should not be allowed  under any circumstances, he will be tortured to death there". Babayan  thinks that one should not accept such a decision of official Minsk.  Moreover, one should not also hope for revision of the decision as in  Babayan's opinion it was "ordered". 

The official representative of NKR President expressed opinion that  Minsk's decision demonstrates corruptness of political system of the  country. "In fact Lapshin has not done anything bad, he has just  visited Nagorno Karabakh. He is not a criminal, he has not committed  any horrific crime to be punished for. And Minsk's decision is just  scandalous. It is also a display of disrespect to its own people, who  have suffered a lot because of fascists. And today Belarusian  authorities want to give Lapshin in the hands of fascists", Babayan  said. Spokesperson of NKR President especially emphasized that both  Armenia and Artsakh have always demonstrated friendly attitude to  Belarusian people. 

To note it has become known today that General Prosecutor's Office of  Belarus has fulfilled request of Azerbaijan's General Prosecutor's  Office on extradition of Russian and Israeli citizen, famous blog  writer Alexander Lapshin to Azerbaijan. 

To remind, in the middle of December the citizen of the Russian  Federation Alexander Lapshin has been arrested in the Republic of  Belarus with the purpose of extradition on the demand of Azerbaijan  for visiting Nagorno-Karabakh and making notes about those  visitations in his blog. Lapshin is included in Azerbaijan's black  list for visiting Karabakh and he was forbidden to enter Azerbaijan.   However, in June 2015 Lapshin arrived in Azerbaijan via Georgia with  his Ukrainian passport. After that Azerbaijan put him on wanted list  for violation of the law on state border and migration code of the  country.  

To note, Sergey Lavrov, the Russian Foreign Minister stated at the  annual press conference in Moscow, commenting the detention of  Russian-Israeli blogger Alexander Lapshin in Minsk due to  Azerbaijan's request for his visit to Nagorno Karabakh. "Russia is  against criminalization of journalists or simply private persons  visiting any region", he said. "Second, we are against extradition of  Russian nationals arrested in any country, to third countries. We had  consular contact with Lapshin, we know that he is also an Israeli  citizen and Israeli diplomats had contact with him as well. We will  take all the steps to solve this situation within the respect to all  the rights of Russian citizen, which is also an Israeli citizen,"  Lavrov accentuated.

Чему удивляться Лукашенко прилюдно поклялся отработать подачку. Уверен, что это далеко не последний пункт в его сделке с дьяволом. То-ли ещё будет. Вопрос только в том, чем лично для него все это кончится. Искренне надеюсь, что ничем хорошим. Бог ему судья.
