STEPANAKERT. – The Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) National Security Service (NSS) has exposed another case of Azerbaijani special services inciting an Artsakh resident to intelligence work, the Artsakh NSS informed Armenian News-NEWS.am.
In recent days, the Azerbaijani special services have intensified their efforts on social media to contact people living in Artsakh in order to spread panic among them, or to gather information from them.
In one such new case, a Telegram user registered under a false name, posing as an Armenian woman, first had an online conversation pursuing the goal of forming intimacy with a person living in Artsakh, sent that person her nude pictures, asked for such pictures from that person, and then demanded—under the threat of publicizing the content of their communication—to provide information, photos of various places, promising to also pay—by transferring money to a bank account sent in advance—for these services provided.
The Artsakh NSS is looking into the aforesaid incident, the information provided to the Azerbaijani special services, as well as the motives behind and objectives for this action.
