"According to official information received from the Russian side, we inform you that the mentioned person was on a private visit to the territory of the Russian Federation during the indicated period, and reports of a “working visit” do not correspond to reality. The meetings he held were of a private nature and none of the Russian officials met with him.

The embassy notes that people living in the Karabakh region of Azerbaijan arrive in Russia with a passport of the Armenian Republic, the dissemination of reports of such alleged “visits” is provocative, aims to mislead public opinion, and casts a shadow on the Azerbaijani-Russian cooperation," reads the message.
