According to the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry, the statement of Seyran Ohanyan is a next fiction of a hangman, who stained his conscience and honor with the blood of innocent people.
“The person, who killed civilians, including children, women and the old people in Khojaly and other occupied territories of Azerbaijan, doesn’t have a moral right to speak about humanity insulting the Azerbaijani people who fought for the liberation of their lands. His staring into eyes of his children, children and relatives of the Armenians unduly killed and injured in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan, as a villain and barbarous parent who shed the blood of hundreds of children, clearly proves that he is mentally abnormal. Today and for many years, the Armenian people suffer losses every day because of unbelievable arrogance of Ohanyan and criminal Armenian leadership. We urge the Armenian parents not to send their children to death for the sake of meaningless dreams. You will face heavier and crushing losses, unless the last Armenian occupier leaves the territory of Azerbaijan,” the ministry underlined.
Ohanyan issued statements accusing and threatening Azerbaijan on March 3.
