My quotes about "fiction" was not from the closing ceremony, but by an
official from the presidency

my point is unsubstantiated hacking claims feeds the Azerbaijani's
government claims about "fictions" regarding internet freedom in Az.

Perhaps it is stupid to pursue this, I just want diplomats to be
diplomatic and responsible. I think evidence, rather than sabre
rattling is important in international cybersecurity incidents.
