The Prosecutor General's Office of Azerbaijan has opened a criminal case in connection with alleged deforestation by Armenia in the Lachin region.

Azerbaijani media, citing their Prosecutor General's Office, report that Armenia is accused of violating the Convention on the Conservation of European Wildlife and Natural Habitats through ecological terrorism by way of deliberate destruction of forests with valuable and perennial trees.

The report states that, "As a result of the investigation, there were reasonable suspicions that, on the instructions of the military-political leadership of Armenia, its armed forces have once again showed their barbarism and illegally cut down 1,818 different trees in the Lachin region, with its unique flora and fauna," and considerable damage was caused.
