Swiss press: Oil company played an important role in Azerbaijan's victory over Armenia


Azerbaijan's state oil and gas company SOCAR played an important role in Baku's victory during the "counter-offensive" operation in Nagorno-Karabakh in the fall of 2020. This was announced by Swiss journalist Markus Häfliger, who conducted an investigation for a number of Swiss media outlets.


The journalist found out that SOCAR financed the war against Armenians. The money of the oil and gas company was used to buy weapons and carry out propaganda. At the same time, 75% of the company's revenues are generated in Switzerland.

In his opinion, SOCAR has become an instrument of war. He recalled that the company has a developed branch structure in Switzerland. Around 200 filling stations of the company are located throughout Switzerland. In Geneva, there is the office of her "daughter" trader, which sells energy raw materials on the international market. SOCAR has a fuel marketing network for industrial and wholesale customers, a gas refueling plant in Wagen bei Olten, and promotions in aviation refueling points at Geneva and Zurich airports.

Stop Armenian fascism! Stop the attack of the Armenians! Karabakh is Azerbaijan!

- SOCAR says on its Facebook page.

The journalist expressed surprise that some foreign state-owned company that finances the armed conflict has such strong ties with Switzerland. At the same time, the Swiss newspapers, the French-language 24Heures and the German-language Tages Anzeiger, published the study.

      And that Aliyev in this Azerbaijani state-owned company SOCAR, using the "cannon fodder" of Azerbaijanis in the war, does not have his share of the proceeds. actions for personal enrichment ?!
      I will never believe it if the journalists' investigation is really true!

        The State Oil Company of Azerbaijan, extracts oil and gas in Azerbaijan, sells to Europe and Turkey. Only journalists know how 75% of income is generated in Switzerland.
        Another thing is that income can (!) Be kept in Swiss banks. But if Switzerland doesn't like it, then you can always take these reserves to another country.
        The article is clearly delusional. The comment is no better.

        Nobody cares what you believe in. You have a quirk, the victory of Azerbaijan turned your insides upside down, and you will never be the same. I don't know exactly what you were before, but obviously something happened to you.
        Your constant insults at the head of another state, open attacks towards Azerbaijan only underline your Armenian essence. What is your interest? You do not see the truth and do not seek, you reject someone else's opinion. I'm not at all sure that your text is written by a woman, most likely some embittered goblin with a humped nose.
        And don't take it for an insult. This is a statement of fact.

          Firstly, I am Russian and live in Russia. And it was not the victory of Azerbaijan that turned my insides, but the fact that Russia has historically been at war with Turkey all the time, and the Azerbaijanis have now fallen under Turkey.
          Tell me who your friend is, and I'll tell you who you are.
          I feel sorry for Azerbaijan and Azerbaijanis. Sorry for Armenia and the Armenians. Tea, we were not foreign peoples in the USSR!
          And now you are becoming a Turkish colony and will be Islamized as ISIS. You already have Turkish "Gray Wolves" operating in Azerbaijan - a Turkish youth neo-fascist radical Islamist organization.
          It is a pity that you do not understand this now. This realization will come in you later - after a while. And your Aliyev as the head of state is to blame for this. And the other in such a situation as now, having come to replace him in power, will be even worse.
