 The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) ought to punish Azerbaijan for vicious murder of Karen Petrosyan, a captured Armenian civilian, Paruyr Hayrikyan, Leader of the Union for National Self-Determination told reporters, on 9 August. 

The Armenian civilian, resident of Chinari village, a 31-year-old Karen Petrosyan died in Azeri captivity on 8 August from what the Azeri side claims was cardiovascular deficiency. 

The politician blames of Committee for insufficient activity in the South Caucasus region. "The world community must take tough measures against Baku. The situation shows that Armenia must not rely on the external help, as the international human rights structures do not fulfill their responsibilities appropriately," he said.  

He calls on official Yerevan to think over its mistakes that allowed upsurge in tension on the Line of Contact with Azerbaijan and not to leave Baku unpunished for its atrocities against captured Armenians.
