Ukraine publishes article about Azerbaijan’s Khojaly genocide

    POLITICS  26 February 2024 - 20:50

    An article by Chairman of “Council of Azerbaijani Scholars of Ukraine” public organisation, Doctor of Law, Azerbaijani professor Arif Guliyev, dedicated to the 32nd anniversary of the Khojaly genocide has been published on the Ukrainian Kyiv Diplomatic website.

    The author has written in an article entitled “An unforgettable black day on the calendar: the 32nd anniversary of the Khojaly genocide” that the Khojaly genocide, committed by Armenian extremists and nationalists against the Azerbaijanis, went down in history as the worst mass terrorist act, Azertac reports.

    Despite the past 32 years, the pain from the massacre committed by the Armenian aggressors in Khojaly is still felt.

    According to the article, the Khojaly genocide is recognised by various countries and international organisations.

    The author notes that no sanctions have been applied against Armenia for its crimes against humanity.

    Today, February 26, is the 32nd anniversary of the Khojaly genocide and the occupation of the town of Khojaly by Armenian armed formations with the participation of the 366th Motorized Rifle Regiment of the former USSR.

    The Khojaly genocide is the gravest crime of genocide committed against peaceful Azerbaijani people in the course of Armenia’s aggressive war against Azerbaijan. On the night of February 25-26, 1992, in violation of all international legal norms, Armenian armed forces attacked the civilian population of the sieged town of Khojaly with heavy military equipment, killing them with unprecedented brutality and razing the town to the ground.

    As a result of crime against not only the people of Azerbaijan but against humanity, 613 civilian Azerbaijanis, including 63 children, 106 women and 70 elders were brutally murdered on grounds of national identity. The Khojaly genocide is one of a series of acts of mass slaughter aiming to crush those who rose up for the defence of their lands from Armenian armed forces’ aggression, to break their will to fight and annihilate the Azerbaijani population of then-time Nagorno-Karabakh.
