It seems that to some politicians money means more than the honour of their own country or their relations with other countries. This case could affect the stability of the whole region.

Lángoló Gitárok, a Hungarian music blog, has published an interview [1] [hu] with Gaya Arutyunyan [2], a Hungary-based singer of Armenian origin.

Commenting on the extradition [3] of Ramil Safarov [4] to Azerbaijan, which resulted in Armenia severing diplomatic ties with Hungary [5], she said the case could lead to more deaths and to an outbreak of a new wave of violence.
