There are no injured persons among employees of the Consulate because there was nobody in the building at night hours. We would like to note that the cameras of the Honorary Consulate recorded that there were 2 attacking persons", the Ministry of Foreign Affairs told APA.
It was noted in the information that the criminal case has been initiated by Kharkiv city police regarding the attack on the consulate building: "Taking into consideration the continuous threats made by the radical Armenian forces against Azerbaijan’s diplomatic representations in foreign countries recently, this attack made on our Honorary Consulate in Kharkiv should be considered just in the context of these threats.
We resolutely condemn the attacks of the radical Armenian forces of threatening character that cause risk to life on Azerbaijan’s diplomats in foreign countries, as well as members of the local Azerbaijani community. Our country’s relevant institutions will implement mutual activity and cooperation with local law enforcement agencies in foreign countries in order to ensure that the persons responsible for such actions of criminal nature against the Azerbaijani citizens in foreign countries and members of the local Azerbaijani community would answer in law".
