The Prosecutor General's Office of Azerbaijan confirmed the detention of the former head of Nagorno-Karabakh

The Azerbaijani authorities continue to “restore order” in the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, which, as a result of the recent “local anti-terrorist operation” and an agreement with Stepanakert, where Russian peacekeepers acted as mediators, has completely come under the control of Baku.

On October 3 of this year, reports appeared about the detention of the ex-head of the already former unrecognized republic Arayik Harutyunyan by Azerbaijani security forces. Former NK presidents Arkady Ghukasyan and Bako Sahakyan were also detained along with him. At that time, no details of the case were disclosed in Baku.

Today it became known that the former leader of Karabakh has been charged with a number of charges under the criminal legislation of Azerbaijan. This was reported by the Prosecutor General's Office and the State Security Service of the country.

According to the information announced, Harutyunyan is charged with terrorist activities, including its financing and preparation, planning and unleashing an aggressive war, premeditated murder, issuing criminal orders and violating international norms in the field of humanitarian law.

In turn, just yesterday the lawyer of the ex-president of NK told the EADaily portal that law enforcement officers interrogated his ward and promised to build a defense in accordance with Azerbaijani legislation and international standards. .

    So how did the ICC help the Armenians?
    Saakashvili prisoners have also appeared in the Caucasus.
    Is Pashinyan next?

      Azerbaijan seeks to erase the movement of the Armenians of Karabakh as such from history. Taking into account the arrest of the leaders and security forces of the NKR, the exodus of the Armenian population from Karabakh, the partisan movement also becomes impossible.
      And the special services of Azerbaijan, together with their Turkish colleagues, will strive to replenish the “black list”, consisting of either 200 or 300 names.
      We can only hope that the “surviving” NKR leaders of the 90s, who are in Armenia, will join the ranks of the opposition to Pashinyan.

    Next after Karabakh will be Syunik

    The Zangezur corridor is needed to connect Turkey through Nakhichevan with Azerbaijan and further with the entire Turkic world. Armenia has always prevented this by its very existence

    Azerbaijan is holding «anti-terrorist operation», the goal of which is called “restoration of the constitutional order” in Nagorno-Karabakh. There is a possibility that the conflict will spread to another key area in Transcaucasia - the so-called Zangezur corridor, the opening of which Turkey and Azerbaijan are very interested in.

    Armenians are fleeing Karabakh. Cleaning up, though.

      It won’t. We’ve already agreed on everything.

      Official Baku comes next:
      "Armenia must ensure safe transport links along the Zangezur corridor. However The Armenians misinterpreted what this corridor meant for Baku. The Azerbaijani side does not claim these territories and recognizes them as the sovereign territory of Armenia. Another question is how they will ensure his safety. In accordance with the tripartite statement, Russian border guards must ensure the safety of movement. But now Armenia appears to be rethinking this commitment. We would like to inform you that Azerbaijan refused the five-party meeting in Granada, Spain. In the five-sided format proposed by Baku (Armenia-Azerbaijan-France-Germany-EU), an anti-Azerbaijani atmosphere has formed. Azerbaijan does not see the need to discuss regional problems with countries far from the region." Immediately after this, Ankara spoke, declaring that it supports Baku's decision. Once again, "In accordance with the tripartite statement, Russian border guards should ensure the safety of movement."

      The bottom line is the following: The Zangezur corridor will exist and Russia will protect it. At the same time, there should be no Armenian army there, otherwise security will be at risk. At the same time, Paris and Brussels are not allowed to participate in the peace process because of their position in the region. The peace treaty will be concluded without them. Wherein Iran is included in the transport corridor as one of the beneficiaries.

      Brought to power by Turkish, British and American intelligence agencies, Pashinyan did exactly what he was supposed to do. Except for one thing - to expel Russia from Transcaucasia, replacing it with France. But since the balance of power in this case is upset, then Baku demanded that Russian peacekeepers leave the Zangezur corridor behind them, and the Persians become one of the branches of the trans-Caspian multimodal corridor.

      All interested parties resolved their issues. Russia is guaranteed to remain in Transcaucasia, the Turks and Azerbaijanis are creating their own transport corridor, Iran does not receive Turkey on its borders, since the corridor is guarded by the Russians.

      It seems to me that they wouldn’t have just been released... It’s too easy.
