This isn’t the first time Azerbaijan is trying to present the conflict as a religious one. This is what representative of the Ministry of Defense of Armenia Artsrun Hovhannisyan told reporters this evening, responding to a question about the staged video prepared by the Azerbaijanis in which one can see how Armenians allegedly push pigs into a mosque. The release of the video is clearly aimed at “justifying” the shelling of the Christian Holy Savior Ghazanchetsots Cathedral of Shushi.
“This isn’t the first time an attempt is being made to present the conflict as a religious one. Relevant statements have been made by Ilham Aliyev. This is no surprise,” he added.
