ARTSAKH DELEGATION’S VISIT TO MOSCOW: AZERBAIJAN HANDS PROTEST NOTE OVER TO RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR OVER

Russian Ambassador to Azerbaijan Mikhail Bocharnikov was summoned to Azerbaijan’s foreign office on Wednesday – a predictable step on official Baku’s part given the context.

The reason behind the step is that two Artsakh officials – Minister of Culture, Youth and Tourism Lernik Hovhannisyan and FM Masis Mailyan – recently visited Moscow and held meetings with experts on different fields.

The news caused the Azerbaijani Internet users’ concern, with epithets like “illegal regime” and “Armenia-occupied” being hurled, and a diplomatic step followed.

But the problem is that Mr Mailyan and Mr Hovhanisyan actually paid private visits to Moscow.

So let us regard it as an attempt to drive a wedge between Armenia and Russia.
