The decision to abolish the All-Russian Azerbaijani Congress (VAK) is in no way connected with politics and should not affect the development of relations between Moscow and Baku, says Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia Vasily Nebenzia.
According to him, the issue is a legal one.
“The decision is not due to someone’s political will, this is a decision of our law enforcement bodies in connection with the violation of the registration procedure of this organization. I am absolutely sure that this story should not affect our bilateral relations with Azerbaijan”, Vasily Nebenzia said.
Recall that the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation on May 15 satisfied the suit of the Ministry of Justice on the liquidation of the public organization “All-Russian Azerbaijan Congress” because of the inconsistency of its charter with Russian legislation.
According to the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation, the provisions of the VAK statute do not meet the requirements of the current legislation.
In particular, the name of the organization does not contain an indication of the nature of its activities, and information on persons entitled to act without a power of attorney on behalf of the organization does not comply with information on the organization contained in the Russian Unified State Register of Legal Entities.
