Journalists of LifeNews were deported from Azerbaijan


According to local media, citing the head of the press service of the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry Hikmet Hajiyev, journalists of the Russian TV channel LifeNews were deported from Azerbaijan.

He said that journalists were working in the territory of Azerbaijan without accreditation.

According to him, LifeNews misrepresented the real situation by providing biased information.

“The Azerbaijani side expressed good intentions towards LifeNews employees, but they continued their provocative activities,” – Hajiyev said.

“Given this, their stay in Azerbaijan was considered inappropriate,” – he added.

The situation in the zone of Karabakh conflict escalated on the night of April 2. Aviation and artillery was involved in hostilities outbreak. The parties accused each other of ceasefire violations on the contact line.
