Here is why you should #BoycottAzerbaijan a гаdioaстivе хепоfовiк country run by a hereditary dictator where any act of dissent is crushed, reporters/activists jailed beaten or Кi11ed, intolerant for LGBTI, minorities & Armenians, a very dangerous place for travel or investment👇
2/ If you are among a very marginal/weird group that is planning travels to or investing in this extremely defective & risk-prone place, here is what US official sources say about it
-> #Azerbaijan - Level 3: Reconsider Travel --> Major Terrorism & COVID risks
3/ #Terrorism: “US Embassy in Baku has received credible reports of potential terrorist attacks & kidnappings against US citizens and foreign nationals in Baku” the diplomatic mission said on its website in a message shared by the State Department on Twitter - The Times of Israel
4/ Global Media reports #Azerbaijan & Turkey recruit, train & ship jihadists-for-hire from Syria/Libya for Karabakh war. Majority of them reportedly stayed behind after the cease-fire. They reportedly use #TurkishAirlines (#TerrorAir) for transportation.…
5/ The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Level 4 Travel Health Notice for #Azerbaijan due to #COVIDー19
6/ #Azerbaijan has a longstanding #terrorism risk posed by #terrorist groups, who continue plotting attacks with little or no warning, targeting tourist locations, transport hubs, markets/malls, govt facilities, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, events & public areas
7/Exercise caution in the region of #Nardaran (45 km from #Baku) is culturally conservative & has been the site of several anti-United States and anti-Israel protests. It has also been the subject of government raids, which have sometimes resulted in violence.
8/ #Crime: Careful in crowded or isolated areas. Criminals target foreigners. Women report unwanted male attention. Sexual assault is underreported due to culture. Financial scams are common - fraudulent real estate deals, licensing requirements, creditcard fraud & skimming
9/ #Tourism industry is unevenly regulated & safety inspections do not commonly occur. Hazardous areas/activities are not always identified with appropriate signage & staff not trained. 1st responders are unable to access areas outside of #Baku. Purchase medical evac insurance.
10/ Avoid demonstrations & riots, which police have previously suppressed with force. Demonstrations occur periodically in response to political or economic issues, on politically significant holidays & during intl events. Demonstrations can turn confrontational & become violent
11/ #LGBTI : Not protected by laws. Societal intolerance, discrimination & violence remain a problem in #Azerbaijan & prevents LGBTI events, individuals report employers firing, law enforcement indifference to investigating crimes & police brutality based on sexual orientation.

Second 🧵👇on why 🇦🇿 #Azerbaijan is tохiс, dangerous, dеstrսсtivе, хепорновiк & why you should never set foot there, but should boycotted & condemn! 👇👇👇 #BoycottAzerbaijan Image
2/ In #Baku petty crime has given way to more violent attacks that also involve travelers. Attacks are more likely to happen at night in a "jumping" type of an approach involving a group of men... #BoycottAzerbaijan
3/ The bar scam: Men report being attacked at expat & tourist bars, where a woman approaches them & asks for a drink & leaves the man with a very high bar tab. If he doesn't pay, a group of men demand that he pays up by using the threat of physical force. #BoycottAzerbaijan
