Journalist Semyon Pegov (born in 1985), founder of the WarGonzo project, who was carrying out provocative activities in Azerbaijan’s Nagorno-Karabakh region occupied by Armenia, has fled the region.

The announcement was made by Pegov himself.

Pro-Armenian journalist Pegov has fled Nagorno-Karabakh to the Russian city of Khabarovsk.
