ArmInfo. This is already the second time when Azerbaijan
refuses to fulfill its promise to release Armenian POWs, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan wrote on his Twitter page.
< This is already the second time when Azerbaijan refuses to fulfill its promise to release Armenian POWs. The first case was in May, when a promise was made in Brussels, and the second time is now, when in Washington Azerbaijan committed to release 17 Armenian POWs until 9/30," the head of the Armenian government noted.
It should be noted that a video is being spread on Telegram channels, where Azerbaijani servicemen are shooting at unarmed Armenian soldiers. Regarding the video, the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Armenia stated that at the moment they cannot provide specific information about the place and time of the incident, the relevant bodies are currently studying the video, but there is no doubt about the authenticity of the video, and this is a handwriting characteristic of the Azerbaijani armed forces.
The Office of the RA Human Rights Defender noted, in part: "At the moment, we have identified the authenticity of the video: it is new, the incident occurred during a large-scale attack by the Azerbaijani armed forces on the sovereign territory of the Republic of Armenia on September 13 of this year. This fact is confirmed by a combination of examining the terrain, similar video materials in our and other databases, as well as by a complex combination of weather conditions, uniforms of military personnel, the conversation of Azerbaijani servicemen, and other parameters. This is yet another war crime committed by the Azerbaijani armed forces, the source of which is a consistent policy of Armenophobia by Azerbaijan, manifesting itself starting from the educational content in all spheres of public life and in the statements of the President of this country himself. By the way, this is also recorded in the recent report of the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination concerning Azerbaijan. This video, among others, will be included in the Ad Hoc Report of the Human rights defender and sent to international organizations and actors," the Armenian HRD's Office said in a statement.
