The head of the Armenian delegation to the PACE Ruben Rubinyan, speaking on the first day of the session, referred to the war crimes of Azerbaijan during the war and considered important the issue of the return of Armenian prisoners of war.
"The people of Nagorno-Karabakh were attacked not only by Azeris, but also by foreign militants and mercenaries, who were transferred to the conflict zone by Turkey. This fact was reported by the leaders of France, Russia, the United States, the heads of security agencies, international media, Human Rights Watch. Numerous videos and photos have appeared on Azerbaijani social media, calling for cruelty and violence against Armenians.
