Baku blacklists Ukrainian journalists for “distorting reality about Karabakh conflict”

The Azerbaijani Embassy in Ukraine has expressed protest to this country’s Foreign Ministry for screening a film about Nagorno Karabakh on Ukraine’s 1+1 TV channel, the Azerbaijani Embassy told Trend.

Baku slams the Channel for “distorting” the reality about Azerbaijan’s socio-political situation and the Nagorno Karabakh conflict and expressing sympathy for Armenia.

The Embassy has already sent a letter of protest to the TV channel’s management and said the authors of the TV program, reporters Konstantin Andryuk and Dmitry Volkov have been included in the list of “persona non grata” of Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry for their illegal visit to Azerbaijani territories occupied by Armenia.

Azerbaijani embassy added that this TV program causes serious damage to the friendly and strategic relations between the two countries and urged Ukrainian Foreign Ministry to take corresponding measures against the TV channel and its reporters that have “insulted and committed slander against Azerbaijan and its citizens.”
