Head of the European Union (EU) Delegation to Azerbaijan Peter Michalko commented on the torture to the Azerbaijani soldier detained by Armenians on his Twitter page, APA reports.

"I saw a video showing violent treatment of a detained Azerbaijani soldier. Indeed deplorable. Important that all prisoners are treated in line with international humanitarian law," he noted.

Note that two soldiers of the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Azerbaijan - Babirov Agshin, born in 2004, and Akhundov Huseyn, born in 2003, went missing due to limited visibility in the adverse weather conditions on the border area of Shahbuz district with Armenia. In one of the videos spread on social media, cases of physical torture and inhuman treatment against the captured Huseyn Akhundov were depicted.
