The Ministry of Defense (MOD) of Azerbaijan issued a comprehensive statement calling on Russia to use Azerbaijani place names in Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh).
It is a separate matter whether the attempts of the Azerbaijani authorities to ignore the Armenian toponyms are appropriate in general, when the Azerbaijani authorities themselves claim that "Armenians of Karabakh are citizens of Azerbaijan."
It is interesting that in the aforesaid statement, the Azerbaijan MOD cites Maghavuz village, in particular, as an example. Indeed, in the past it was called Chardakhlu and was inhabited by Armenians. However, the Azerbaijani authorities tried to destroy all Armenian traces there, including the monuments of Armenian Soviet generals and heroes of the Great Patriotic War.
"This is known to everyone, including in Russia. By the way, there is an article in the Criminal Code of Russia, according to which the destruction and desecration of the memory of the heroes of the Great Patriotic War is punished outside the borders of the Russian Federation as well," Artsakh's now acting Minister of Foreign Affairs David Babayan had said, in particular, in an interview with Armenian News-NEWS.am earlier.
