Special forces of the Azov battalion of Ukraine's National Guard made an assault on Dec. 15 on a store owned by five Azerbaijani businessmen in the city of Kharkiv, businessman Vugar Karimoglu told APA on Dec. 19.
The businessman noted that the Azov forces attacked the Azerbaijanis’ store selling Christmas trees and seized their all property.
“The forces insulted us and recommended us to sell those Christmas trees in Azerbaijan,” he said.
Karimoglu stressed that there were a number of stores owned by representatives of other nationalities, but they only attacked the Azerbaijanis.
“The forces even threatened us with death in case we continue to trade in Kharkiv,” he added.
Karimoglu said they are trading on the basis of authorization in the especially determined areas in Kharkiv.
