The Azerbaijani Prosecutor General’s Office has opened a criminal case against Mikhail Delyagin, a member of the Russian State Duma, for his remarks about Azerbaijan and has put him on the international wanted list, RIA Novosti reported on Wednesday.

On March 28, during a program aired on the Russia state TV, the Russian lawmaker called for the “punishment” of Azerbaijan for its aggressive actions in Nagorno-Karabakh and suggested hitting its oil industry with nuclear weapons.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that his statement “does not correspond to the official policy line of the Russian Federation.”
