He underlined that this visit shall not give a meaning of disrespect for Republic of Azerbaijan and its people.

Dimitry Uvarov, reaffirming his full respect to the laws of the Republic of Azerbaijan expressed his apology to the Government and People of Azerbaijan for an unauthorized visit to the occupied territories of Azerbaijan.

He also, noted that as a result of the conflict, more than one million Azerbaijanis have become refugees and internally displaced people and more than 20,000 people have lost their lives.

Appeal by Dimitry Uvarov was considered and the decision was made to remove his name from the list.
