The Baku court of Azerbaijan sentenced Russian citizen Eduard Dubakov, who fought in Nagorno-Karabakh, to 10 years in prison in a terrorism case (clause 3.1 of article 214 of the Criminal Code of Azerbaijan), informs “Sputnik Azerbaijan”.
According to the prosecution, Dubakov was attracted by the Armenian authorities to participate in the battles in Karabakh.
