Moscow urges Yerevan and Baku authorities to immediately conduct a comprehensive in-depth analysis of videos showing Azerbaijani servicemen shooting Armenian servicemen who are captured, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement.
"The mentioned videos are replete with footage of extreme cruelty. All cases of violations of international humanitarian law should be thoroughly investigated. We urge the Azerbaijani and Armenian authorities to immediately conduct a comprehensive in-depth analysis of these videos, including for signs of war crimes. If the facts are confirmed, all those responsible should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Russia continues to make serious efforts to improve the situation in the region and normalize relations between Baku and Yerevan. We assume that there is no alternative to peace. We are ready to provide the necessary assistance to the parties," the commentary notes.
