S. Martirosian: Khojalu subject is number one target for Azerbaijan
Late February is a tense period in the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict,
especially in the cyberspace, in connection with the Khojalu events.
Information security expert Samvel Martirosian expressed this opinion
during a meeting with journalists today.
`In the past two years Azerbaijan has been active regarding the
Khojalu issue, which is its number one target. Azerbaijan spends vast
sums on it at the state level,’ S. Martirosian stressed.
In his words, by tradition Azerbaijanis issued a statement claiming
that they had hacked numerous Armenian websites, whereas in reality
the matter concerned only several dozen sites, while in response
Armenian hackers hacked websites of two Azerbaijani ministries –
Justice Ministry and Ministry of Labor and Social Protection.
Commenting on Azerbaijani film `Khoja’, S. Martirosian said it was
made for domestic propaganda and is a flop. The Armenian documentary
`Between Hunger and Fire: Power at the Expense of Lives’ depicts
reality. Moreover, its English-language version aroused unprecedented
interest of the international community.
`In the first ten days alone, the film had over 300,000 views, with
Azerbaijanis making up the majority of viewers. In general, the
subject of Khojalu is a lever of Azerbaijan’s domestic policy. `Khoja’
film cannot be considered a serious work from an artistic or
propagandist point of view. It has been criticized even within
Azerbaijani society,’ Martirosian noted.
