PanARMENIAN.Net - A group I’ve been to Artsakh, without “permission” was created on Facebook in response to Azerbaijan’s publication of the so-called ‘blacklist’ including 335 people, who visited Nagorno Karabakh.
“Azerbaijan has just recently published a list of 335 people who they have declared as "persona non grata", and are threatening to increase the number. We can save them a lot of time by declaring ourselves, and be proud of it! This will show our support for Artsakh, and send a message to Azerbaijan that we are not concerned by their threats of being listed by them! We are proud of going to Artsakh, without permission, and don't care about the Azeri "black list",” the group said.
Over 400 people joined it during 2 days.
On August 2, the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry has published its “famous blacklist”, which includes Slovak politician Frantişek Mikloşko, Argentinean parliamentarian Jose Arbo, Russian expert Andrey Areshev, Baroness Caroline Cox, opera star Montserrat Caballé and many other famous personalities.
