Armenia will use all available international mechanisms to ensure investigation and prosecution, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan wrote on his Twitter, commenting on a video of Azerbaijani soldiers executing unarmed Armenian soldiers.

"Yet another horrific video circulated in social media: Azerbaijani soldiers are arbitrarily executing group of Armenian POWs on sovereign Armenian territory. International community should strongly condemn and address this war crime and take appropriate measures to halt Azerbaijani aggression," he wrote.

"Armenia will use all available international mechanisms to ensure investigation and accountability. Such acts of violence should be addressed properly, with consequences for the aggressor," Nikol Pashinyan added.

A video in which Azerbaijani servicemen shoot unarmed Armenian soldiers is spread in Telegram channels. EU Special Representative for the South Caucasus and the crisis in Georgia Toivo Klaar commented on the video and wrote in his microblog on Twitter, "If this video is proven to be authentic then this is a war crime that needs to be investigated and the perpetrators punished."

The Armenian Defense Ministry in its turn stated in regard to the video that at the moment it cannot give any specific information about the place and time, now the relevant bodies are studying the video, but there is no doubt about the authenticity of the video and it is a handwriting characteristic of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces.
