The fight has occurred between Azerbaijani and Armenian youth at the end of today's festive event being held in the Moscow-based Russian University of Friendship of People. Even during the arrangement, organized in the Russian University, Armenians provoked young Azerbaijani people to fight several times. After seeing how Armenians danced, raising the flag of the un-recognized self-proclaimed separatist regime of Nagorno-Karabakh, Azerbaijani students forewarned their Armenian university mates to stop. In addition, Azerbaijani students then forewarned both officers of the corresponding security agencies of the Russian capital and the directorship of the University about the illegitimacy and provocative nature of the statements and actions of the Armenians. Armenians, for their part, brutally ignoring the requests and calls made by Azerbaijani students and distributing Anti-Azerbaijan literature amongst students of the University, faced a decisive protest from Azerbaijanis. Agaly Alishov received a gunshot wound during fight.
