Leonid Drachevsky

Former Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation

Heydar Aliyev has good relations with Russia and is treated as an outstanding world-class statesman. It is no secret that Heydar Aliyev is a person whose equal is hard to find in the world. Therefore, Heydar Aliyev’s opinion is always taken into account and, I think, through direct dialogue, our countries will always be able to find a common language.
