"We call for an immediate investigation by the relevant authorities. The footage, which shows how Azerbaijani soldiers execute Armenian soldiers, should be investigated by the Azerbaijani authorities," he said.

According to Stano, if the results of the investigation prove the authenticity of the footage, it is a war crime and a clear violation of international law.
