“We regretfully state that despite the numerous discontent expressed by the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Azerbaijan, the names of Azerbaijani settlements are still being mentioned with Armenian toponyms in the official information of the Russian Federation’s peacekeeping contingent,” the Ministry of Defense told AZERTAC.
“An end must be put to referring to the Karabakh economic region as the “Nagorno-Karabakh territory”. In general, it is inadmissible to mention Azerbaijani territories with fictitious Armenian toponyms.
We call on the command of the Russian peacekeeping contingent temporarily stationed in the territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan to mention the names of Azerbaijani settlements in accordance with the official documents provided to them.
In the official information of the peacekeeping contingent of the Russian Federation, published on the official website of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation on 28.11.2022, the official names of the Azerbaijani settlements referred to as “Mardakert”, “Martuni”, “Madagiz” and “Getavan” are respectively AGHDARA, KHOJAVAND, SUGOVUSHAN and GOZLUKORPU,” the ministry added.
