The guard of the Azerbaijani embassy in Iran fought like a lion, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova wrote, commenting on the video footage of the moment of the armed attack on the Azerbaijani diplomatic mission in Tehran.

"We are shocked by another attack on the Azerbaijani embassy, during which a security officer was killed,” Zakharova wrote earlier.

"We express our condolences and support to our Azerbaijani colleagues,” she noted.

On January 27, at about 8:30 a.m. (GMT+4), there was an armed attack on the Azerbaijani Embassy in Tehran.
