YEREVAN (ARMENPRESS)—An Azeri district court has filed a lawsuit against Russian businessman German Sterligov for “public anti-state calls” and for “illegally crossing the state border of Azerbaijan” following Sterligov’s decision to move his family and business to Nagorno-Karabakh earlier this month.

The Baku Nasimi district court issued an arrest warrant for the Russian businessman on Tuesday, APA news agency reports.

Commenting on the court’s decision, Sterligov said on his official VKontakte page that the decision is Azerbaijan’s response to his proposal of conducting a peaceful roundtable discussion with Russian, Armenian, and Azeri experts.

“It means that they are afraid of an open discussion with facts about the historical belonging of Karabakh. Armenians are not afraid of an open discussion, Russians are not afraid as well. But Azerbaijanis are in panic and threats come from there. What can it mean?” Sterligov said in an online post.

Sterligov, who recently returned from Moscow to Shushi, called on the Azeris to confirm publicly “the incontestable and absolute historical truth: Karabakh is an ancient Armenian territory.”

    Azerbaijan is such a silly entity that exists on earth. There shouldn’t be any need for the honorable Sterligov to prove to Azerbaijan what the world knows–that Artsakh is Armenia. When Armenia existed, during the Roman times, during the times of the Greek and Persian empires, Turks didn’t even exist in the region, let alone have a state there. These squatters from central Asia have no legitimate claims to any lands in Eastern Anatolia or the Caucasus–their rightful claims should be directed to lands in Central Asia, let them go claim it!
