Azerbaijanis seriously wounded in armed assault by Armenians in Ukraine identified
The United Congress of Ukrainian Azerbaijanis told APA that chairman of the congress’s youth organization in Lviv Shahriyar Maharramov, his brother Rajab Maharramov, Ruslan Mammadov, Ilgar Maharramov, Rashad Mammadov and Vusal Jalalov received various bodily injuries.
They are being treated in a hospital in Lvov. Four of them injured in their heads and their conditions remain critical.
An armed group of Armenians assaulted on Azerbaijanis in Lviv, Ukraine, wounding six Azerbaijanis on May 16.
Armenians assaulted a store owned by Shahriyar Rajabov, the Congress’s youth organization in Lviv Province, and his brother Maharram Rajabov, assaulting the Azerbaijanis in the store.
The assailants said they had sought to avenge the beating of Armenians by Azerbaijanis in a mass brawl over the waiving of the separatist Nagorno-Karabakh regime’s flag during a Wushu Sanda contest held in Lvov 3 days ago.
At the time of the incident Rajabov managed to escape to the neighboring store and then a new brawl erupted. Fearing they were going to be beaten again, Armenians used arms, wounding six Azerbaijanis. Lviv law enforcement agencies as well as the security service are investigating the incident.
The Armenians involved in the brawl are being searched for.
