Zakharova slams Baku policy towards Russian citizens of Armenian origin
“Russian citizens were detained for hours at the airport and then were expelled from the country without specifying official reasons.”
These facts are a gross violation of the rights of Russian citizens as well as are contrary to the spirit of the Russian-Azerbaijani friendship treaty, the Intergovernmental Agreement on visa-free travel and the Declaration of Friendship and Strategic Partnership.
According to her, the Russian side “has repeatedly drawn the attention of the Azerbaijani side to the unacceptability of the current situation.”
