More than 30 People were Detained after Fights between Azerbaijanis and Armenians in Moscow

In Moscow, more than 30 people were detained for fighting on interethnic grounds, the Ministry of Internal Affairs reported. The report did not indicate how many of them remain in custody. In the capital, clashes between the natives of Azerbaijan and Armenia have been taking place for several days. 

      Criminal cases were initiated under the articles "Hooliganism" and "Robbery" (Art. 213 and Art. 162 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). Some of the participants in the fights were brought to administrative responsibility under Art. 20.1 Administrative Code. The Ministry of Internal Affairs does not specify the number of those brought to administrative responsibility, and those facing criminal punishment.

      “During the period from 23 to 24 July, cases of public order violations, property damage and bodily harm by foreign citizens were recorded in the Moscow region ... In total, more than 30 people were brought to the territorial police departments for investigation,” the   Ministry said.

      Criminal cases under the article "Hooliganism" were initiated after the fights on 23 and 24 of July. A criminal case under the article “Robbery” was initiated on the fact of an attack by “unidentified persons” in a cafe on Bratislavskaya Street on the night of July 24.   

      In Moscow, there have been clashes on interethnic grounds for several days. Conflicts are observed in areas where many people from Azerbaijan and Armenia live. The clashes are taking place against the backdrop of deteriorating relations between the two countries. Baku and Yerevan accuse each other of violating the ceasefire regime on the border between the Tavush region of Armenia and the Tovuz region of Azerbaijan.
