Azerbaijani Embassy in Russia sent a note of protest to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, expressing concern over the participation of the First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration and Relations with Compatriots Konstantin Zatulin in a 'forum' organised by Karabakh separatists in occupied Khankendi. This is reported by Azeri Daily with reference to the Embassy of Azerbaijan in Russia.

The note states that the embassy is asking the Russian side to express its attitude towards the provocative statements of Konstantin Zatulin, who is openly supporting Karabakh separatists, regarding the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, as well as speeches that harm the high-level cooperation between the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Russian Federation.

Azerbaijani Embassy also asks to find out in what status Zatulin visited the Azerbaijani occupied territories and which side funded this visit.

In addition, the note emphasises that the Russian authorities should give an appropriate assessment to the statements of Konstantin Zatulin, which fundamentally contradict the official position of Russia on the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, distort historical facts and justify the occupation policy of Armenia. In this regard, the Eembassy is asking the Russian Foreign Ministry to take the necessary measures.
