A tour of Roman Temnikov, an employee of the newspaper Obozrevatel, the chairman of the Association of Russian Youth, a member of the Central Control Revision of the Democratic Reforms Party (DRP), to Nagorno-Karabakh has found different interpretations in the Azerbaijani and Armenian media.
The DRP told Trend that having returned to Baku Temnikov came to the headquarters of the party and met with the chairman of the DRP, MP Asim Mollazade. He informed the party leader on the goals and details of the tour. The journalist said that the visit targeted journalist investigation under the international project implemented by the NGO.
In his turn Mollazade said that such an irresponsible and wrong step gave a chance to the Armenian media and occupant regime of Nagorno-Karabakh to use the visit for own purposes. At the same time Temnikovs visit also revealed some interesting milestones. He held meetings with civilians in the occupied territory of Azerbaijan. During the talks the Armenians stated on their warm feelings towards Azerbaijan and attributed themselves as captives of the military regime. The people here also stated that though they wish to live within Azerbaijan, the existing regime does not allow it to come to reality.
Temnikovs visit revealed the essence of the occupant regime of Azerbaijan. The Armenian authorities and occupant regime led by Gukasian, who bloodied their hands in the peoples of Azerbaijani and Armenia, changed the representatives of the Armenian community of Nagorno-Karabakh into captivates of their policy. The essence of Armenias criminal regime is occupation of the Azerbaijani territory is to bring Azerbaijanis and Armenians residing here to victims of their mythic idea Great Armenia. The facts collected during the visit terminate a well-known thesis by Robert Kocharian on genetic inconformity of Armenians and Azerbaijanis. The DRP is to acknowledge that the negative result of Temnikovs visit is that Armenians had a chance to use it for their own purposes.
The visit is positive from the aspect of collapse of the military regime in Armenia. Temnikiov informed the public of Kocharans escape from the Rambouillet meeting in absolutely another aspect. The Democratic Reforms Party states that such a step by Temnikov, which damaged the partys image, should be reprimanded. The party regards as impossible to restrict Temnikovs activities as a journalist. Another point is that as a staff writer he did not have a right to make a tour without notification of the management and agreement of editorial staff and by this way violated the labor discipline.
