The issue of prisoners of war and other detainees remains a current issue, including in the context of the statement of the leaders of Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan of November 9, 2020. This is what Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Maria Zakharova said today in response to a question how Moscow assesses the unlawful ‘court procedures’ against Armenian prisoners of war in Baku.
“Russia welcomes the fact that Azerbaijan transferred 15 citizens of Armenia to Yerevan on June 12, 2021. We support a final solution to the issue with the “all for all” formula and without any precondition. Moreover, we believe it’s important to solve other humanitarian issues, particularly with respect to the provision of mine maps,” she added.
