When reporting on Azerbaijani victims of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the Armenian press is said to use images of Turkish celebrities in military uniform.
With this, Armenia will try to positively influence public opinion on the conflict, which erupted again at the end of last month.
The official Armenian Public Radio website used a photo of famous pop singer Serdar Ortak, showing him among Azerbaijani victims.
The photo in question is 20 years old, since he was doing his military service. The photo appeared in my articles “The number of Azerbaijani casualties per day” and “Heavy fighting continues in the south”.
Other celebrities appearing on the site include actor Alp Kirchan, chef and restaurateur Burak Ozdemir, and actor and actress Andrei Polyanin.
Certainly, Serdar Ortak has said he will fight for Azerbaijan if the need arises.
As originally Russian, Polyanin declared during his military service that Turkey was his home and that he was ready to fight alongside the Turks.
At least 800 people, including civilians, have been killed in the fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh.
