The trial on a criminal case over Russian citizen Eduard Dubakov, who was attracted by Armenia to the battles in the Nagorno-Karabakh war against Azerbaijan, continues at the Baku Court on Grave Crimes, APA reports.

The trial in the Baku Court of Grave Crimes, chaired by Judge Samir Aliyev, has ended.

The prosecutor demanded that Dubakov be sentenced to 11 years in a general regime penitentiary institution.

The prosecutor also said that Dubakov should be deported from Azerbaijan after serving his sentence.

Later, the defendant's lawyer spoke at the trial. In his speech, he said that E. Dubakov was involved in military exercises in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan by Armenia, but did not fight against the Azerbaijani Armed Forces: "We ask that this fact be taken as a mitigating circumstance in Dubakov's case."

The court gave Eduard Dubakov time to prepare for the last word.

The trial will continue on July 22.
