He said that during the conversation, President Aliyev mentioned the names of many journalists from different countries, including Russia.

“I felt that he is well informed about the news daily,” Solovyov said. “It is noteworthy that he watches and reads western news in English, ours in Russian, Turkish in Turkish. He has no problems as he knows these languages very well.”
