Vladimir Dorokhin: None of the Azerbaijanis detained at the territory of Armenia are Russian citizens

None of the Azerbaijanis detained  by Armenians in Kalbajar are Russian citizens, Russian Ambassador to Azerbaijan Vladimir Dorokhin said in his letter to vice-speaker of the Azerbaijani Parliament Bahar Muradova, APA reports quoting Russian embassy's website.

"I officially declare that there is no Russian citizen among the Azerbaijanis detained by Armenians in Kalbajar", he said in his letter. According to some media reports, Dilgam Asgarov, who has been detained in Kalbajar, is a Russian citizen.

To recall, in the first decade of July, Azeris made new attempts to mount a sabotage attack on the Armenian-NKR section of the border (near Karvachar) last week.  The Nagorno-Karabakh Defense Ministry has told ArmInfo that they revealed and neutralized all members of the Azerbaijani subversive group. Some members of the group were captured, and others escaped.  As reported earlier, the Nagorno- Karabakh Defense Army released a photo of Gyulin Shahbaz Jalaloghlu (born in 1968), the captured member of the Azerbaijani sabotage and intelligence team.  Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan informed on Saturday that the Armenian soldiers killed an Azerbaijani saboteur while neutralizing the subversive group on Friday.  But an Armenian officer, major Sarkis Abrahamyan (born in 1972) was killed and an Armenian woman, Karina Davtyan (born in 1977) was wounded. The NKR Prosecutor General's Office has filed a lawsuit regarding Azerbaijani raiders Gyulin Shahbaz Jalaloghlu (born in 1968) and Dilham Asgarov (born in 1960) for illegal crossing of the border.
