Expert: Azerbaijani side uses falsifications concerning 1992 Aghdam events, while Armenian side tracks and reveals them

Panorama.am presents an interview with Anzhela Elibegova, Southern Caucasus geopolitics expert. 
- Every year the anniversary of the events in Aghdam in 1992 - which the Azerbaijani side calls ‘Khojaly’ - is observed in Azerbaijan and beyond its borders. How was this year different?
- First of all, the 23rd anniversary was marked with some passiveness regarding massive and new events by the Azerbaijani side. Factually, this year we witnessed the duplication of all those standard propaganda mechanisms Azerbaijan uses abroad. It’s also remarkable that the Azerbaijani side increasingly prefers to change the costly events in places, where the Armenian side breaks with counteractions, with virtual space making use of the services of bots and paid advertising.
- What new propaganda product appeared in 2015? 
- Except for the 10-minute video clip by the campaign “Justice for Khojaly,” abounding with mistakes and naturally lacking factual references, and a new music video, there were no other noteworthy examples of new propaganda product by the Azerbaijani side. Possibly, it is connected with the serious economic and financial problems the country experiences because of the drastic decline of the oil prices and national currency devaluation. It may also be connected with the domestic political situation. According to the information of the opposition media, Ramiz Mehdiyev, the authorities’ chief ideologue - the head of the President Administration - is gravely ill and was not able to supervise this year’s propaganda campaign. If both of the suppositions are baseless, a further decline of the rate can be expected in the following year, too.
- Which were the Armenian side’s actions?
- There is no necessity to reinvent the wheel. As long as the Azerbaijani propaganda makes loads of reasons to analyze and reveal falsifications regarding the events in Aghdam during the year, what remains to do in February is to make them available for the public. It is noteworthy that the foreign media covering the topic have begun to question the Azerbaijani version, bringing in the arguments of the Armenian side concerning the inconsistencies and contradictions of the Azerbaijani version. This is certainly a result of the painstaking work of a group of professionals who monitor, collect and analyze the Azerbaijani disinformation every year. It should be noted that to this day the Armenian side has not received a comprehensible and factual answer to any of the voiced questions regarding the doubtful circumstances in which the Khojaly people died at the Azerbaijani positions near Aghdam. And it is impossible to endlessly circulate one and the same falsification exceptionally emotionally, without operating on facts. 

- Particularly, what are they trying to falsify in Azerbaijan?

- Any circumstance of what happened. For 5 years, the Azerbaijani side is continuously being caught on using photos taken at other occasions at a different time. It would seem that it is time to be ashamed and cease accompanying booklets and other printed material for distribution with the photos of the victims of Kosovo conflict, earthquake in Turkey, Hamas fighters, etc. Gratefully, they do not circulate the Rwanda genocide victims’ photos. But, wait; the representatives of the Armenian Diaspora have again seized such kind of flyers and posters this year. Suppose, there is no money to print new ones, but they can at least give up using the banners from the Armenian site Xocali.net - which reveals the Azerbaijani falsification – in their propaganda events. Moreover, the banner in English itself directly shows that; however, it seems those who use it have some issues with the knowledge of the English language. 
The above-mentioned site also presents new unmasking of falsifications based on the Aghdam events ‘eyewitness testimonies’ published during the whole 2014. As a propaganda product by the Azerbaijani side this year, the publication of a major book can be noted which contains ‘eyewitness testimonies.’ It is practically useless, because except for the Armenian experts unmasking falsifications, there are very few people who read such kind of literature, even among the Azerbaijanis.  
The Azerbaijani side can’t also make out its lists of casualties, which apart from differing from each other and containing names of sexually mature men who have taken part in military operations and those died in other circumstances at other times, don’t contain 613 names – the officially stated number. Moreover, the Azerbaijani propaganda ‘raised’ the number of the Khojaly residents to 7,000. Also, describing the events, they refer to the HRW report as an authoritative source. It points out a total of 300 casualties. This means that, according to the Azerbaijani propaganda, the remaining 6,300 people reached Aghdam quite safely. This can by no circumstances be qualified as genocide; besides, it also confirms the Armenian side’s claim of a humanitarian corridor’s availability. Considering the list of the 613 people and excluding women, children and old people from it in accordance with the numbers of the Azerbaijani side, we get 347 armed men, that is, more than half of the stated ‘civilians.’ 
- Does the Azerbaijani side react to the revelations? 
- The Azerbaijani side just prefers to ignore the questions which require simple logic; yet these questions do not cease to exist. However, the reaction of the Azerbaijani side is quite clear, as every attempt to make up a justification for inconsistencies serves another reason for the Armenian side to make a noisy unmasking. Actually, we have got into an infinite loop, where one of the sides, lacking facts, makes use of falsifications, which the opposing side vigilantly tracks and reveals.

23 years later former president of Azerbaijan again blames political opponents for Aghdam events in 1992

The site goes on revealing the falsifications of Azerbaijani propaganda over the events in Aghdam in 1992. The site made public the former Azerbaijani president Ayaz Mutallibov’s interview given to the Turkish service of TV channel Al Jazeera. There he speaks about the reasons of Khojalu tragedy, political processes of those times and noteworthy aspects. 

Mutallibov’s comments on the events around Khojalu are of particular interest. Remarkably, Azerbaijani ex-president’s thoughts are in tune with those he expressed in his 1992 interview to Nezavisimaya Gazeta (Independent Newspaper) where he blamed those events on his political opponents. See Mutallibov’s words without changes below:

Al Jazeera: The massacre in Khojalu took place during your presidency. Would it be possible to prevent the events in Khojalu?

Ayaz Mutallibov: The events in Khojalu had a really grave influence on the Azerbaijani people. The Azerbaijani people fell under psychological pressure at that time, and those people, wounded, scared, forcefully turned against me incited by the People’s Front. As I was the president, and they told me: why didn’t you protect them?
Al Jazeera: Why didn’t you protect them?

Ayaz Mutallibov: How was I to protect them? Were we fighting in Karabakh? And Khojalu was situated in Karabakh. Could we enter Karabakh? No.
Al Jazeera: Why couldn’t you enter Karabakh? Wasn’t there enough support, armed forces?

Ayaz Mutallibov: There was, there was everything. Put in other words, the aim was to cross the border of Aghdam district, neighboring Askeran. To protect the refugees it was just necessary to get in front of them there, we had everything.
Al Jazeera: Why didn’t you succeed?

Ayaz Mutallibov: Because there was race for power (cannot conceal anger – note). The worse for Mutallibov, the better for the political structures opposing Mutallibov. Yes, yes… that is what our national concept is. Yes…
It is noteworthy that Mutallibov tricks in an attempt to convince the reader that there was no access to Karabakh. Shushi was in Karabakh as well; still Azerbaijani troops were deployed there and from there daily shelled Stepanakert full of women and children, including refugees who had lost their homes as a result of another ‘non-military’ operation - Ring. The Azerbaijani militarized formations not only ‘could’, but they also repeatedly entered Karabakh intending to exterminate the Armenian population.
On February 26, 1992, during the war in Karabakh, around 200 to 300 people (according to Human Rights Watch, and 600 according to the version propagated by Azerbaijan) were killed in unknown circumstances near the city of Aghdam. They have been deliberately withheld by the Azerbaijani authorities in the midst of the military actions. Population of the village of Khojalu, which was one of the firing points shooting at the blockaded Stepanakert (among five others) was kept in the village for months by force and was not evacuated by the authorities of Azerbaijan deliberately, in order to use them as human shields later.
Residents of Khojalu coming out through the humanitarian corridor, that the self-defense forces of NKR had left open, freely passed more than 10 km and reached the Aghdam city controlled by the Azerbaijani troops. Later, not far from the positions of Azerbaijani troops dead bodies of the villagers were found. The exact death toll remains unknown as the official Baku publishes data contradicting each other. Parliamentary Commission investigating the tragic death of the civilians at Aghdam city was dissolved by the order of Heydar Aliyev, the investigative materials are kept secret.

HERO OF PROPAGANDISTIC FILM ABOUT AGHDAM EVENTS "EKES OUT A MISERABLE EXISTENCE" IN AZERBAIJAN

SOCIETY 12:31 25/02/2016 REGION

Musician Valekh Huseynov, one of the main heroes of "Endless Corridor,"
an Azerbaijani propagandistic film about the Aghdam events, "ekes
out a miserable existence," Azerbaijani news agency Turan reports.

According to the report, the veteran's salary is 150 manats a month.

As a result, Huseynov and his family of seven, including three children
and two old parents, "are badly in need."

Among other problems, the veteran has fallen in a credit bondage
having to take one credit to pay up another, a bigger one, Turan
writes. "Friends and acquaintances helped me to hold a charity concert
and gather a little money. However, the lack of other incomes and
the child's illness forced me to turn to the banks again," Huseynov
told Turan.

Both Huseynov's father and child are ill, and he himself was diagnosed
to have a severe form of diabetes.

His employers in Azerbaijan refused to help him and called him an
"ungrateful and unworthy person."

The veteran notes a typical trait of his country's policy of spending
enormous resources on the recognition of Aghdam events as "genocide,"
while dozens and hundreds of people, whose lives are used to propagate
that myth, are forced to eke out a miserable existence in poverty
and in credits.

On February 26, 1992, during the war in Karabakh, around 200 to 300
people (according to Human Rights Watch, and 600 according to the
version propagated by Azerbaijan) were killed in unknown circumstances
near the city of Aghdam. They have been deliberately withheld by the
Azerbaijani authorities in the midst of the military actions.

Population of the village of Khojaly, which was one of the firing
points shooting at the blockaded Stepanakert (among five others)
was kept in the village for months by force and was not evacuated by
the authorities of Azerbaijan deliberately, in order to use them as
human shields later.

Residents of Khojaly coming out through the humanitarian corridor,
that the self-defence forces of NKR had left open, freely passed more
than 10 km and reached the Aghdam city controlled by the Azerbaijani
troops. Later, not far from the positions of Azerbaijani troops dead
bodies of the villagers were found. The exact death toll remains
unknown as the official Baku publishes data contradicting each other.

Parliamentary Commission investigating the tragic death of the
civilians at Aghdam city was dissolved by the order of Heydar Aliyev,
the investigative materials are kept secret.

Խոջալուի ազատագրումն ու ադրբեջանական թերի քարոզչությունը. ինֆոգրաֆիկա

24 տարի առաջ այս օրը Արցախի պաշտպանության բանակն սկսեց Խոջալուի օպերացիան, որը նպատակ ուներ չեզոքացնելու Խոջալուի մեջ տեղակայված Ստեփանակերտը հրետակոծող կրակակետը, ազատագրելու Խոջալուի օդանավակայանը՝ դեպի Արցախ սննդի ու բուժօգնության ներկրումը ապահովելու համար, ինչպես նաև ազատագրելու Ստեփանակերտ–Ասկերան ճանապարհը, որն անցնում էր Խոջալուի հարևանությամբ ու հսկվում էր վերջինիս կողմից։

 

Օպերացիայի արդյունքում բնակչության համար ապահովվել է քաղաքացիական միջանցք, որից օգտվելով բնակչության զգալի մասը ապահով հասել է Աղդամ։

Խմբերից մեկը սակայն Աղդամի մատույցներում սպանվել է, ինչն Ադրբեջանի քարոզչությունը սկսել է օգտագործել հայերի դեմ՝ կոչելով եղածը «հայերի կողմի իրականացրած ջարդ»։

Պետք է նշել, որ Ադրբեջանի քարոզչությունը չունի բացատրությունը՝ ինչպես է Խոջալուի բնակչությունն ապահով դուրս եկել քաղաքից, այնուհետև ապահով անցել Ասկերանի մոտ տեղակայված հայկական դիրքերի մոտով ու սպանվել մի տարածքում, որտեղ Արցախի պաշտպանության բանակը ոտք դրեց միայն մեկ տարի անց՝ 1993 թվականին։

AZERBAIJANIS LIKE "BETWEEN HUNGER AND FIRE," ARMENIAN FILM ABOUT AGHDAM EVENTS OF 1992

Society 11:30 26/02/2016 Region

The propaganda machine of Armenia works in a very professional
and organised manner, and some Azerbaijani citizens consciously or
unconsciously take part in that work, Asef Guliyev writes for Lent.az.

Against the backdrop of Azerbaijan's calls, which are in fact threats,
an effect is created to confirm the statements of the Armenian side
about Azerbaijan creating a real threat for the Armenians living
in the territory of the NKR and thus making it impossible for the
territory to be Azerbaijan's protectorate again, the author writes.

According to him, "the interference of dilettantes and of people,
who are unable to accurately assess the situation, brings about a
very painful effect, and the Armenia's propaganda naturally benefits
from this."

The author further writes that the lack of wish of the Artsakhian
Armenians to live in Azerbaijan is conditioned by problems existing
in the work of the democratic institutions in Azerbaijan. Notably,
Azerbaijani resources "help" the Armenian side in this.

Guliyev points out a noteworthy circumstance. Voskanapat, an Armenian
news website, and its Facebook page, where articles of the Azerbaijani
media and of the website itself are used, is very popular among the
Azerbaijani users, who like its posts.

The journalist writes that there are two Azerbaijani
citizens among those who liked the recent post on that
Facebook page. The post is about a film dedicated to the Aghdam
events - "Between hunger and fire: Power at the expense of lives"
(https://urldefense.p...30T70b8qHH4k&e=
).

On February 26, 1992, during the war in Karabakh, around 200 to 300
people (according to Human Rights Watch, and 600 according to the
version propagated by Azerbaijan) were killed in unknown circumstances
near the city of Aghdam. They have been deliberately withheld by the
Azerbaijani authorities in the midst of the military actions.

Population of the village of Khojaly, which was one of the firing
points shooting at the blockaded Stepanakert (among five others)
was kept in the village for months by force and was not evacuated by
the authorities of Azerbaijan deliberately, in order to use them as
human shields later.

Residents of Khojaly coming out through the humanitarian corridor,
that the self-defence forces of NKR had left open, freely passed more
than 10 km and reached the Aghdam city controlled by the Azerbaijani
troops. Later, not far from the positions of Azerbaijani troops dead
bodies of the villagers were found. The exact death toll remains
unknown as the official Baku publishes data contradicting each other.

Parliamentary Commission investigating the tragic death of the
civilians at Aghdam city was dissolved by the order of Heydar Aliyev,
the investigative materials are kept secret.

SUMGAIT TRAGEDY WAS STATE-ORGANIZED GENOCIDE: ASHOT MELKONYAN

18:16, 26 February, 2016

YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 26, ARMENPRESS. Many years have passed since Sumgait
pogrom but the international community has not completely perceived
the truth, therefore Armenian side's fight, related to propaganda of
the mentioned issue, needs to be continued, Director of the History
Institute of the Armenian National Academy of Sciences Ashot Melkonyan
expressed such opinion during the presentation of Bakur Karapetyan's
"The Sumgait Diary" book, "Armenpress" reports.

"There are forces today, which believe Azerbaijani falsification
on Khojaly events and forget the anti-Armenian policy and massacres
against Armenians organized by Azerbaijani and their ancestors Caucasus
Tatars not in the recent past," Ashot Melkonyan said.

According to the historian, it is regrettable that the world often
forgets about massacres and destructions against Armenians in Baku,
1905, destructions and massacres against local Armenians in Shusha,
1920 and mass murder of 30.000 Armenians in Baku, 1918.

Ashot Melkonyan emphasized that Sumgait tragedy was a state-organized
genocidal act. "Sumgait pogrom was a new genocide and it fully complies
with the criteria set out in the UN Convention on Genocide, as the
massacres against Armenians, regardless of the number of victims,
was made on the basis of their nationality," he said.

The historian, drawing parallels between 1988 Sumgait massacres and
1905 February's Baku massacres of Armenians during the Armenian-Tatar
conflict, said that in both cases there were the same provocations. As
it happened in 1905, Azerbaijani authorities also pre-organized
everything in the February of 1988, prepared the murderers and
the latters killed Armenians under the instigation of Azerbaijani
authorities.

Author of the book Bakur Karapetyan stressed in his speech that the
tragedy was organized by the Kremlin. Mikhail Gorbachev was aware of
organized massacres and deliberately took no steps to prevent it.

PROPAGANDA FAIL: AZERBAIJAN ACCIDENTALLY PUBLISHES CONFESSION OF AGHDAM EVENTS' "EYEWITNESS": "I HAD ASSAULT RIFLE"

Politics 16:44 26/02/2016

"Evidence" of the survivors of 1992 Aghdam events circulated by
the Azerbaijani propaganda machine and presented in the Azerbaijani
propagandistic publication "The Khojaly Genocide" in 2006 started
to work against it demonstrating the process of falsification of
archival documents.

The point is that the entire "proving base" of the Azerbaijani side
is collected in this book without any scrutiny, onlybased on foreign
publications and "eyewitness accounts." For example, on pages 475 and
477, the testimony of the same person, SuleymanovYusifHasanalioglu,
born in 1949, is published, which he gave within a few days - in
October and November of 1992.

In the interrogation of October, he claims that his wife died from
the cold, and that his two sons reached Aghdam alive, adding that
"none of my relatives lived in Khojaly."

He gives a different testimony in a month. Repeating the information
about the dead wife and survived sons,Suleymanov changed the testimony
regarding the other facts: "Most of my relatives have disappeared. I
do not know if they are alive or dead or were captured as hostages."

Suleymanov was born in village Farah of Lachin district, the NKR.

During the war, he worked atKhojaly department of internal affairs,
which was especially distinguished by its atrocities against the
Armenian population. It is significant that Suleymanov himself
confesses that he was armed with an assault rifleand threw it away
because the cartridges ended.

On February 26, 1992, during the war in Karabakh, around 200 to 300
people (according to Human Rights Watch, and 600 according to the
version propagated by Azerbaijan) were killed in unknown circumstances
near the city of Aghdam. They have been deliberately withheld by the
Azerbaijani authorities in the midst of the military actions.

Population of the village of Khojaly, which was one of the firing
points shooting at the blockaded Stepanakert (among five others)
was kept in the village for months by force and was not evacuated by
the authorities of Azerbaijan deliberately, in order to use them as
human shields later.

Residents of Khojaly coming out through the humanitarian corridor,
that the self-defence forces of NKR had left open, freely passed more
than 10 km and reached the Aghdam city controlled by the Azerbaijani
troops. Later, not far from the positions of Azerbaijani troops dead
bodies of the villagers were found. The exact death toll remains
unknown as the official Baku publishes data contradicting each other.

Parliamentary Commission investigating the tragic death of the
civilians at Aghdam city was dissolved by the order of Heydar Aliyev,
the investigative materials are kept secret.

Lack of facts makes Azerbaijani propaganda machine again circulate
Zori Balayan's nonexistent quotes

Politics 14:19 27/02/2016
Region


The Azerbaijani propaganda machine again started to circulate the
falsifications of1992 Aghdam events, which wereexposed long ago. It
again propagates the `confessions' ascribed to the Armenians and made
by a nonexistent author `DavudHeyriyan'
and ZoriBalayan in a nonexistent book.

In an article about the `mourning rituals' dedicated to the Aghdam
events, Haqqin.az references the following topicto intensifyits
argumentation: `Even the Armenians left evidence of the atrocities
committed by themselves. This is what one of the participants of the
events, DavudHeyriyan, writes.' Further, the quotes of the nonexistent
author of the nonexistent book follow.

Axar.az, another Azerbaijani website,also publishes only quotes which
`describe the atrocities' in its article `ZoriBalayan'sterrible
confessions about Khojaly.'

Vzglyad.az also recalls the `confessions of the bloodiest barbarians
which tear your soul and freeze your blood,' copying the quotes of the
aforementioned work word by word.

Moderator.az published the article of the vice-president of the
international fund `Gashgari', writer, publicist, and police mayor
JalaleddinHasimov, whoalso refers to ZoriBalayan, to his `book', and
to the quotes with `confessions.' By the way, the former, who exploits
the Khojaly theme and tells about the `conspiracy' ofZoriBalayan and
other Armenian figures withthe commander of the 366thregiment,does not
even know his real name calling him `Zurgugarov.'

Excerpts from these nonexistent books are constantly cited by the
Azerbaijani media as `Armenians'confession of their own deeds.'
However, the Azerbaijani side could not present either the original
book or its full content during the 20 years of the exploitation of
this thesis. At the same time, ZoriBalayanspoke about his alleged book
in an interview with Azerbaijani Day.az 10 years ago, in 2006: `Scorn
wins over slander.' DavudHeyriyan does not have any opinion about this
due to his nonexistence.
In its turn, in 2012, public organization `Xenophobia Prevention
Initiative' officially announced its intention to buy the
above-mentioned books ``Resurrection of Our Soul' and `In the Name of
the Cross' ` and expressed its willingness to pay $15 000 for each.
Nobody responded to the offer during the years after the publication
of the announcement.

This issue is examined in detail in the book `Armenophobia in
Azerbaijan' by A. Adibekyan and A. Elibegova in the chapter
`Dehumanization and demonization of Armenians.'

Pro-Azerbaijani Propagandist Caught in Lies of 1992 Aghdam Events

 

YEREVAN (Panorama.am) — American journalist Thomas Goltz – one of the pillars of the Azerbaijan’s propaganda machine, who “as an eyewitness” actively spreads “facts” about 1992 Aghdam events he allegedly witnessed – was caught on yet another lie.

Thomas Goltz’s article published in the Sunday Times on March 8, 1992 (p. 533) is included in the Azerbaijani propagandistic publication “The Khojaly Genocide” (2006), which compiles all the “proving base” of the Azerbaijani side based on foreign publications and eyewitness accounts.

As any other publication of the kind, which needs an imitation of credibility, Goltz’s article is filled with names of heroes, including those having many children, whose grief should cause “shock and tremor” in the audience.

The names of people, who, according to the journalist’s claims, tragically died a month after the interview of January 1992, are presented in the article.

The first is Zumrut Ezoya, “mother-of-four.” According to Goltz, “she and her family were victims of mass murders committed by the Armenians on February 26.”

The second is Balakishi Shakilov, 55, father-of-five, and his wife Dilbar. According to Goltz, “this couple, their three sons and three daughters were murdered during the assault, as many others were, whom I spoke to.” Here the journalist is so obsessed with myths that he accidentally “kills” a child, who was not originally mentioned in this invented family.

The third is Omar Veyselov, who survived, but lost his wife and daughter.

However, the problem is that the official Baku published the list of names of those dead long ago. The list can be accessed on Xocali.net. (http://xocali.net/ru/comparative.html)

The official list lacks the names of the people mentioned by Goltz.

Goltz worked as a journalist in Turkey and in other countries of the USSR for 15 years, later writing a number of books, among which are ones dedicated to the Karabakh war, where he actively supports Azerbaijan’s point of view.

THE PEOPLE'S DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF TURKEY REFUSES TO PREACH FALSEHOODS ABOUT KHOJALY EVENTS

Politics 17:13 27/02/2016 Region

Speaker of Grand National Assembly Ismail Kahraman along with leaders
of parliamentary factions spread statements condemning Armenia on
the occasion of the 24th anniversary of Khojaly events', Ermeni
Haber reports.

According to the source, the false thesis was defended by Turkey's
leading parties, such as the ruling Justice and Development Party
(AKP), Republican's People Party (CHP) and the grey wolves of National
Movement.

The People's Democratic Party (HDP) of the Grand National Assembly,
however, refrained from accusations against Armenia and the Armenian
armed forces.

Pro-government newspaper 'Yeni Akit' complained about HDP's behaviour
and called them "Addicted to Armenia".

Yair Auron: Israel must stop saying the Azeris were victims of genocide
Yair-Auron-620x300.jpg
 

By Yair Auron
Haaretz

In an Israeli forest dedicated to Israel’s first president, Chaim Weizmann, 613 trees were planted last month to mark “24 years since the Khojaly genocide” in Azerbaijan. The only ones commemorating this “genocide” – in which 613 people were allegedly killed – are Azeris, Turks and, in recent years, Israelis. The Azeri press is overjoyed: “It is not surprising that Israelis remember the victims of Khojaly. The Jews know more than any other nation the pain of innocent victims, murdered only because they belonged to a certain group.”
The battle for Khojaly took place in February 1992, at the height of a vicious war between Azerbaijani and Armenian forces during the Nagorno-Karabakh War. There are several versions regarding what happened, including a disputed numbers of victims. There are some who claim there was not even a massacre, but one thing is clear: No genocide took place there. I say this as a genocide researcher and as a person who believes that the murder of even one person because of his affiliation is an intolerable crime.
At the start of the war, observers were convinced Azerbaijan would wipe out the Armenian enclave within days, but after six blood-soaked years, with both sides perpetrating massacres, the Armenians won.

The “genocide” at Khojaly is a cynical Azeri fabrication, evil and cruel. It is being fostered by Azerbaijan, which explicitly declares its intention of conquering Nagorno-Karabakh and destroying its villages.
In recent years, the State of Israel – the main arms supplier to Azerbaijan – has become a direct and indirect supporter of these genocide claims. President Reuven Rivlin spoke of the Khojaly tragedy in his January 2015 speech to the UN General Assembly on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, referring to acts of genocide that took place in our time. He didn’t specifically define what happened in Nagorno-Karabakh as genocide, but he linked the two by talking about “the killing in Khojaly.”
Rivlin has previously stated publicly, including when he was Knesset speaker, that Israel should recognize the Armenian genocide (perpetrated by the Ottoman government, starting in 1915), but refuses to repeat this as president. His words at the United Nations were interpreted by both Azeris and Armenians as if he had used the term “genocide” in reference to Khojaly.

To me, the planting of trees in an Israeli forest and the Azeri-Jewish “brotherhood of victims” that was emphasized at the ceremony are a desecration of something sacred. Describing Armenian soldiers as Nazis, the clear links made between the Holocaust and the massacres at Babi Yar, Lidice, Oradour and Khojaly are a terrible distortion of a basic historical truth.
How the wheel of history turns. In April 1918, Weizmann’s personal secretary, Shmuel Tolkowsky, published an article called “The Armenian Question from a Zionist Standpoint.” The article presented the positions of the Zionist Movement at the time, especially that of its London leaders, Weizmann and Nahum Sokolow. It was written with Weizmann’s support and approval.

“We Zionists feel a deep and sincere sympathy for the fate of the Armenian people. We do so as human beings, as Jews and Zionists. As Jews, we were exiled from our ancient land and experienced suffering for many centuries. We were turned, I dare say, into experts on martyrdom. Our humanitarian sensitivities were honed in an unparalleled fashion, to the point where the suffering of other nations, even those alien to us in their origin and distant in their location, cannot but shake our souls, giving rise to a fraternity between us and our suffering brethren, a deep fraternal link that could be termed ‘a brotherhood of sorrow.’

Among all those suffering around us, is there any nation whose history of martyrdom is more similar to ours?”
Last year, after various “Khojaly memorials” and the words of our president at the UN, a very senior Armenian cabinet member invited me to his office. “I speak to you not as a minister in the Armenian government but as one human being to another, as an Armenian to an Israeli Jew: how much more can you hurt us?” he asked. “You don’t recognize the 1915 genocide, you deny it, you sell arms to Azerbaijan – whose only purpose is to obliterate the Republic of Karabakh – and now you take part in events commemorating the ‘genocide in Khojaly,’ topped by your president’s words at the UN. We can’t take it anymore.”
The Dean of Yerevan University, where I teach, was once a student at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Earlier this year he said to me, “Yair, you are desecrating all moral values. You are defiling the memory of the Holocaust.”
Mentioning Khojaly and the Holocaust under one title at a recent, so-called scientific conference is indeed a desecration of the Holocaust and its victims. This event was attended by Knesset members and parliamentarians from Azerbaijan. It was organized at the initiative of a group called Aziz, the Israel-Azerbaijan International Association. This is a group the attorney general has been asked to investigate.
The forest where the trees were planted belongs to the Jewish National Fund, an official state institution. Who approved this odious act? Israeli officials talk of “our dear Azeri brothers.” They say: “We, Israelis and Jews, sympathize with your feelings.” Or “Jerusalem, just like Khojaly, was under siege.” And “We express our solidarity with the families of the victims and the Azeri people, solidarity with basic human values.”
Yes, Israel, we are indeed desecrating basic human values, and defiling the memory of the Holocaust and its victims. No one gave us the authority to do so!

The writer is a genocide researcher. This year he launched the “Genocide Studies and Human Rights” course at the American University of Armenia in Yerevan.

Anti-Armenian Documentary Narrated By Actor Jeremy Irons To Air in Europe

May 12, 2016

A controversial documentary about the Khojaly incident will air on
Euro Channel (June 1). Directed by Lithuanian director Aleksandras
Brokas and narrated by British cinema legend Jeremy Irons, ''Endless
Corridor'' follows Lithuanian journalist Richard Lapaitis on a trip
back to Azerbaijan 20 years after he covered the Nagorno-Karabakh
conflict. This documentary distorts facts, alters reality, fabricates
evidence and jeopardizes its own status as a documentary. Executive
Producer of the documentary Gerald Rafshoon, was the White House
Communications Director under the Jimmy Carter administration. The
official website of the documentary is endlesscorridor.com.

Shot in English, the documentary was translated into Azerbaijani,
Turkish, French, Italian, German and Arabian on the initiative of
vice-president of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation Leyla Aliyeva. The film
was also shown on Turkey’s “Kanal 24”, “CNN Turk”, Israel’s “Channel
1” TV channels, and Albania’s National Television.

On February 26, 1992, a series of events took place in Aghdam, which
are now referred to as the “Khojaly massacre” by Azerbaijan. In
reality, the village of Khojaly was one of the Azerbaijani army’s
strongholds in the heart of Nagorno-Karabakh which for many months, as
Human Rights Watch put it, “pounded the capital of Nagorno Karabakh,
Stepanakert, and other Armenian towns and villages with shells and
grenades. The indiscriminate shelling and sniper shooting killed or
maimed hundreds of civilians, destroyed homes, hospitals and other
objects that are not legitimate military targets, and generally
terrorized the civilian population.” In this regard, suppressing the
Azerbaijani army’s fire had become a matter of survival for the people
of Nagorno-Karabakh.

As Azerbaijani journalist Eynulla Fatullayev stated, “And even several
days prior to the attack, the Armenians had been continuously warning
the population about the planned operation through loudspeakers and
suggesting that the civilians abandon the town and escape from the
encirclement through a humanitarian corridor. According to Khojaly
refugees’ own words, they had used this corridor and, indeed, the
Armenian soldiers positioned behind the corridor had not opened fire
on them.”

However, Fatullayev continues, “… part of the Khojaly inhabitants had
been fired upon by our own [Azerbaijani troops]… Whether it was done
intentionally or not is to be determined by investigators … [They were
killed] not by [some] mysterious [shooters], but by provocateurs from
the National Front of Azerbaijan’s battalions … [The corpses] had been
mutilated by our own …”

Ayaz Mutalibov, then the president of Azerbaijan, blamed his political
opponents for the killings in Khojaly. He stated in an interview with
Russia’s Nezavisimaya Gazetta in 1992 that “…the corridor, by which
people could escape, had nonetheless been left by the Armenians. So,
why did they have to open fire? Especially in the area around Aghdam,
where there was sufficient force at that time to get help to the
people. As the Khojaly inhabitants, who narrowly escaped, say, it was
all organized in order to have grounds for my resignation. Some forces
functioned for the effort to discredit the president.”

The fact that Khojaly inhabitants fell victim to fierce domestic
political fighting for power in Azerbaijan was confirmed also by then
Chairman of Azerbaijan’s Supreme Council Karayev, his successor
Mamedov, Azerbaijani Human Rights Activist Yunusov, and others.

According to a 1992 report by the Azeri newspaper Bilik-Dunyasi
Agency, Heydar Aliyev, then a presidential hopeful in Azerbaijan,
stated, “…the bloodshed will profit us. We should not interfere in the
course of events.”

Fatullayev, the Chief Editor of the Azerbaijani newspaper Realny
Azerbaijan spent many years in prison for alleged defamation of the
inhabitants of Khojaly. He appealed to the European court of Human
Rights, which ruled that the Azerbaijani government shall immediately
release Fatullayev. He was eventually released in 2011 and shortly
after confirmed to Radio Liberty that he has not changed his views on
the Khojaly events and that he held “Azerbaijani fighters, not
Armenians, responsible for the 1992 killings” of Khojaly inhabitants.

“I call on our partner parliamentarians from different states,
municipal and provincial councils to avoid the pitfalls of Azerbaijani
propaganda,” Zakaryan said in his speech in parliament. “Don’t buy
into false information and fictitious events. Keep clean the
parliamentary agendas and don’t let the Azerbaijani propaganda
penetrate there. If you are looking for those responsible for the
Khojaly events, look for them in Azerbaijan.”

Armenia ambassador to Italy: Khojaly events were organized to overthrow then Azerbaijan President Ayaz Mutalibov


15:58, 23.02.2017

png4U0RRJrWes.png

It is an ultimate hypocrisy how Azeri officials are misusing the human feelings with this propaganda and lies.

Armenia’s Ambassador to Italy, Victoria Bagdassarian, told the above-said to Agenparl news agency of Italy.

“Ambassador of Azerbaijan, when speaking about Khojaly and the massacres of its population, fails to mention that the inhabitants of Khojaly became victims of criminal internal policy between the then Azeri authorities and National Front of Azerbaijan, an ultra-national movement which was striving for power,” noted the Armenian ambassador. “The Khojaly events were organized by the National Front of Azerbaijan to overthrow [then] President Ayaz Mutalibov, and to come to power. This was confirmed by President Mutalibov himself, a month after his resignation, in an interview to Czech journalist Dana Mazalova, which was published in Nezavisimaya Gazeta.

“Unfortunately, the official [Azerbaijani] propaganda does not disdain to use any means to put the blame for the events on the Armenian side and inject a new portion of hatred towards Armenians into the minds of its younger generation. They also spread this mendacious information to try to divert the attention from the atrocities they have perpetrated in the Azeri cities of Baku, Sumgait, Kirovabad and elsewhere against its Armenian citizens.

“I very well know that the Azeri propaganda distorts those events as did the Ambassador of Azerbaijan in an interview to your agency. Moreover, if you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”

Politics 12:59 24/02/2017
Italian media reports: Distorting facts of Khojaly events, Azerbaijan’s president disturbs peaceful resolution of Karabakh conflict

The Karabakh conflict has not faded since 1992. In April of the last year, the Azerbaijani regime initiated active military action in Karabakh. The Nagorno-Karabakh Republic lives in an atmosphere of war and all the residents are ready to take up arms and fight for their country again, Italian website Panorama reports
On December 1991, using their right to freedom of _expression_ and self-determination, the Armenians of Nagorno-Karabakh held a referendum and declared independence. The referendum was followed by a real military intervention in the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic by Azerbaijan.

For a year, NKR capital Stepanakert’s civilian population was under the direct fire of rocket launcher “Grad” and was subject to bombardment with cluster bombs by the Azerbaijani aviation. Armenia’s role in the armed phase of the conflict was to protect the civilian population and to provide humanitarian, economic, and diplomatic assistance. NKR Self-Defense Forces were involved in the military operations.

It is noted in the article that the events in Khojaly are one of the terrible pages of the Karabakh conflict; however, the Azerbaijani regime’s statements about the alleged “genocide” are false. 

It is emphasized in the article that the Azerbaijani authorities control the country’s media outlets and all the information. The regime in Baku is one of the most authoritarian in the world, and Azerbaijan’s president Ilham Aliyev has taken up his post for the third time after inheriting the power from his father.

As for Khojaly events, the “facts” presented by Azerbaijani and several western sources about the alleged “Khojaly genocide” are a clear manipulation of information.

It is highlighted in the article that days before February 25, 1992, the commanders of the NKR Self-Defense Forces informed the Azerbaijani authorities and the civilian population by radio about the inevitability of the military operation for the neutralization of the firing point and the humanitarian corridor left for the evacuation of the civilian population.

Referring to Azerbaijani sources, the Italian website writes that Khojaly resident Salman Abbasov confirms the fact of the warning by radio. He also confirms that the local authorities did not allow evacuating the population. “When it was already possible to evacuate women, children, and elderly people, the Azerbaijanis did not let us do it,” Abbasov said.

It is known from the Azerbaijani sources that the then mayor of Khojaly, Elman Mammadov, was aware of the attack and asked for helicopters, however, the authorities in Baku did not help him at all.

Azerbaijani MP Ramiz Fataliev’s (Chairman of the commission investigating the events) statements are also remarkable. According to him, four days before the Khojaly events, during the meeting of the of the National Security Council of Azerbaijan, in the presence of the president, Prime Minister, KGB head and others, it was decided not to evacuate civilians from Khojaly.

It is noted in the article that the evidence speaks about the fact that the civilian population served as a human shield for the Azerbaijani authorities for protecting the firing point.

In this regard, an extract from the former Azerbaijani president Ayaz Mutallibov’s interview is presented. In the interview, he, in fact, confirms that the events were organized by the Azerbaijani opposition in order to overthrow him. “The general picture of the events is that the Armenians really left the corridor, through which people could leave. Why did they have to shoot in this case? Moreover, at a territory near Aghdam, where at that time there were enough forces in order to help people,” the former president stated.

Ayaz Mutallibov’s interview, which was printed in the newspaper “Novoe Vremya” on March 6, 2001, read: “It was obvious that someone had organized the slaughter in order to change the power in Azerbaijan.” Thereby, Mutallibov hinted at the Azerbaijani Popular Front Party, the groups of which were placed near Khojaly.

Several Azerbaijani public figures and journalists also made statements and remarks of the kind. However, the Azerbaijani ruling regime led by president Ilham Aliyev spreads Armenophobia with the help of its “truth” about Khojaly. Those, who dared to challenge the “truth,” were either arrested or killed. All this and using the civilians as a shield makes Azerbaijan’s criminal liability more obvious. Figures also show the same: according to SIPRI (Stockholm International Peace Research Institute), during the last seven years, Azerbaijan’s military expenditure increased by 2500%. These data are compatible with Nazi Germany’s rearmament in the 1930s.

Thia fact, frequent violations of the ceasefire agreement signed in 1994, Azerbaijani ruling elite’s obvious military statements, and dissemination of Armenophobia in the schools of the country certainly represent a huge obstacle for the negotiation process under the mediation of the Co-Chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group.
Currently, Azerbaijan refuses to negotiate directly with the democratically elected government of Artsakh and is negative towards the offers of the OSCE to withdraw snipers from the contact line and create a collaborative mechanism for investigating ceasefire violations. Armenia, on the other hand, intends to come to the resolution of the conflict through negotiations. This decision excludes military action for achieving the ultimate goal. The international community shares this position.

The article ends with the first soviet Nobel Peace Prize winner Andrei Sakharov’s words: “Peace, Progress, Human Rights - these three goals are insolubly linked to one another: it is impossible to achieve one of these goals if the other two are ignored.”

On February 26, 1992, during the Karabakh war, around 200 to 300 people (according to Human Rights Watch, and 600 according to the version propagated by Azerbaijan) were killed in unknown circumstances near the city of Aghdam. They were deliberately withheld by the Azerbaijani authorities in the midst of the military actions. The authorities of Azerbaijan intentionally kept the population in the village for months by force and did not evacuate them in order to use them as human shields later as the village was one of the firing points for shooting at the blockaded Stepanakert (among five others).

The residents of Khojaly, coming out through the humanitarian corridor the self-defense forces of the NKR had left open, freely passed more than 10 km and reached the Aghdam city controlled by the Azerbaijani troops. Later, dead bodies of the villagers were foundnot far from the positions of Azerbaijani troops. The exact death toll remains unknown as the official Baku publishes data contradicting each other. Parliamentary Commission investigating the tragic death of the civilians at Aghdam city was dissolved by the order of Heydar Aliyev, the investigative materials are kept secret.

Italian Senator Criticizes Colleague for Pro-Azerbaijan Speech on Khojaly Events
  • 24/02/17
 
MariaRizzotto.jpg

Italian Senator Maria Rizzotto

ROME, Italy—Italian Senator Aldo Di Biagio criticized fellow senator Maria Rizzotti’s February 21 speech about the Khojaly incident, assessing it as one-sided and based only on pro-Azerbaijani rhetoric.

Rizzotti—a member of friendship group with Azerbaijan—urged in her speech to declare February 26 “Remembrance Day of Khojaly Genocide” at the Italian Senate.

Senator Biagio said that the Senate does not support Rizzotti’s speech. During his speech on Tuesday, he stated that speaking about the Khojaly events and assessing it as “genocide” means to accept the biased opinion of the Baku authorities but is denied by facts. “There is no reference to the fact that the Armenians of Nagorno-Karabakh reaffirmed their right to self-determination through referendum,” Biagio said. He also noted that his colleague bypassed in her speech the provocations and the spread of Armenophobia by Baku authorities, which hamper the OSCE Minsk Group Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) peace process.

“Ignoring all this means to ignore facts and spread partial information which is pregnant with the risk of being mistaken for the truth, since the issue has been raised in this reputable establishment of the Senate of the Republic, and this is a very serious country,” he concluded.

The minutes of the Tuesday session at the Senate reportedly did not include Rizzotti’s proposition to declare February 26 as a “Khojaly Genocide” remembrance day.

Chingiz Mustafayev on Aghdam events: 10 Azerbaijanis were walking among corpses 600 meters away from our post

Azerbaijani journalist Chingiz Mustafayev known for his shooting of military action in the region of the Karabakh conflict was one of those, who told the truth about Khojaly events. Mustafayev taped corpses of Khojaly residents found near the Azerbaijani positions not far from Aghdam in March 1992 and made public the information about the real perpetrators of Khojaly tragedy. 

“On February 28 (1992), when I got there, I asked permission to cross over to the other side and see how the tragedy had happened. I was told that there were bodies only in Khojaly, talks had been held with the Armenians, and the bodies had been exchanged and brought back. Khojaly residents told me that the corpses were near pig farms, and that there were also people left alive. Khojaly residents went there on foot and hid there,” Mustafayev said.

Upon hearing that, the journalist asked them to provide him with a helicopter, a car, or let him go there on foot. They again told him that it was impossible to get there: everyone was massacred; Armenians were allegedly keeping the place under fire, and so on.

“On February 29, while flying by military helicopter to the same place from the village Umudlu, we flew over that side at my request. I saw with my own eyes that I had already passed through that place. The pig farm was 10 kilometers away from Khojaly. More than 50 bodies were scattered seven hundred meters away from our post near Derebeyi. The fact that I saw 10 of our citizens walking among the corpses on the shots taken from above is still a mystery causing shiver. Those people in military uniforms were from Aghdam. I have those shots - they are calmly walking among the corpses. I am still told that there were no bodies, no one could get there, as there were Armenians there and so on. However, when we finally got off the helicopter, three of the helicopters immediately returned to Aghdam allegedly ‘forgetting’ us there. Those 10, having walked there on foot, left on foot,” the journalist emphasized.

According to him, his group was shooting there for 45 minutes. The place was 25 meters away from the road to Nakhichevanik. Cars of Armenians passed through the road twice. They noticed the journalist and his group, who then walked back to Aghdam.

“I still cannot understand why the corpses 6-7 hundred meters away from our posts, among which 10 our people were freely walking, were not taken away. Corpses had been exchanged and brought back from Khojaly provided there were negotiations.

As you see, allegedly, it was a ‘trap’: the Armenians kill our people. It was not allowed to go there also because the Armenians were killing people there,” Mustafayev said.
As for the committee created for the investigation of the events, the journalist noted that he had suspicions about its work.

According to him, the committee was going to show that it worked. However, the committee would be included in the Committee investigating the January tragedy, the helicopter tragedy, and all the tragedies in general, and the investigation would last at least 5-6 years. It was unknown, when it would end.
Forces responsible for those tragedies are preparing something new day by day.

Chingiz Mustafayev was killed on June 15, 1992. He was posthumously awarded the National Hero of Azerbaijan title for his shootings of the military action in the region of the Karabakh conflict. Chingiz Mustafayev is primarily known for his taping of the Khojaly residents’ corpses found near the Azerbaijani positions not far from Aghdam in January 1992. He videotaped those corpses on March 2, 1992. When Mustafayev told Azerbaijan’s former president Ayaz Mutallibov that the bodies’ positions and the corpses’ injuries were not compatible with the initial inspection, the president told him “not to say a single word about it, otherwise, he would be killed.”

Videos, which has recently appeared on Internet, confirms Azerbaijani armed forces’ involvement in Khojaly tragedy

Azerbaijani journalist Chingiz Mustafayev known for his shooting of military action in the region of the Karabakh conflict was one of those, who told the truth about Khojaly events. Mustafayev taped corpses of Khojaly residents found near the Azerbaijani positions not far from Aghdam in March 1992 and made public the information about the real perpetrators of Khojaly tragedy. Facts about Khojaly events in the video, which has recently appeared on the Net, confirm the Azerbaijani armed forces’ involvement in the tragedy. 

“This program was not aired. They said this program was against soldiers of the national army or the President of the Supreme Council and so on. But there was only one reason. They knew that we would eventually introduce the program to people, no matter how difficult it might be. We had to know the truth,” Mustafayev said.

 

https://youtu.be/BSMmA4eq5_k

It is noted in the video that it is easy to examine how the Parliamentary Committee for Investigating the Khojaly tragedy operated.

“Committee has already completed its work. However, people will not be informed about the results owing to the same secret reasons, as the tragedy itself.  We think they will never be informed because the eyewitnesses of the tragedy are no longer among us,” the voiceover in the video emphasizes.
It is also noted that according to the then chairman of Azerbaijan’s Popular Front Party and vice chairman of Supreme Council, Tamerlan Garayev, “if he unveiled everything he knew about Khojalу tragedy, even his tongue would be burnt.”

“However, unlike Garayev, Chingiz’s and his followers’ tongues are not burnt. As you know, Chingiz took shots of the tragedy twice and there are significant differences between the first and the second shootings.
The first time Chingiz visited the scene, he was the only journalist among others, who visited the place, but his presence had not been planned. Nobody knew he had got on the helicopter. At that time, soldiers had to bring only a few corpses from the scene.”

The photographed corpses from Khojaly were much closer to Aghdam. When Chingiz saw the people, who were walking among the corpses and escaped upon seeing the helicopter, he started to get suspicious. They were not Armenians.

“Several questions arise. How did those people get there without helicopter? Why and where were they taking the corpses? And if there was a road, why nobody protected these victims?”

The questions were very interesting. And maybe for the same reason, the helicopter that had accidently brought Chingiz to the scene, allegedly forgot him and found it necessary to leave him there.

This (2:03) is Chingiz’s first visit and first shooting. As you can see, the corpses are not mutilated. Here the bodies are just the way they were.

https://youtu.be/BSMmA4eq5_k

 (2:10) This is the second visit organized to demonstrate the journalists from all over the world the “atrocities” of the Armenians. It was planned to show the conditions the civilians were in, allegedly because of the “Armenian bandits.”

https://youtu.be/BSMmA4eq5_k

Chingiz’s camera once again saw everything (2:23). 

https://youtu.be/BSMmA4eq5_k

(2:24) And now, you see this poor man on the photo made for the first time.

https://youtu.be/BSMmA4eq5_k
 
And this is the photo made for the second time (2:29). But the same poor is scalped here. 
Chingiz Mustafayev: “I took this photo yesterday in the afternoon, and there was nothing like this!” Mustafayev said.

https://youtu.be/BSMmA4eq5_k

Questions arise regarding who did it in one day. There are many unanswered questions of the kind.
Chingiz Mustafayev was killed on June 15, 1992. He was posthumously awarded the National Hero of Azerbaijan title for his shootings of the military action in the region of the Karabakh conflict.

ArmInfo.Ankara's statement regarding Khojaly events reminiscent of the situation, as if Hitler had expressed his solidarity with his ally Mussolini, the Vice President of the Armenian Parliament Eduard Sharmazanov said in an interview with ArmInfo in response to condolences of Turkish  President to Azerbaijani colleague on Khojaly events.

 

"It turns out that one expresses support to another. Instead of the  so condole and condemnation, it would be better if the  Turkish authorities got acquainted to the interview of former  Azerbaijani President Ayaz Mutalibov, in which he assured that  Armenians are not involved in the events in Khojaly", summed up the  Vice President.

 

To note, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan expressed his  condolences to the people of Azerbaijan regarding the 24th  anniversary of the Khojaly events. "We honor the memory of victims of  Khojaly tragedy and wish patience to Azerbaijani people", said  Erdogan.

 

The Armenian community of experts believes the untwisted by the Baku  ideologists "genocide" of Azerbaijanis in Khojalu to be a myth  created by Heydar Aliyev and taken up heir Aliyev Jr. in order to  divert international attention from the mass riots and massacres of  Armenians in Sumgait, Baku, Kirovabad, and many other settlements in  Azerbaijan, the monstrous massacre of old men, women and children in  the Karabakh village of Maragha, where in April 1992, the units of  the invading Azerbaijani regular army brutally killed about 100  civilians, and overall brutality of the Azerbaijani armed forces in  the course of large-scale military adventure against the Artshakh  Republic, which finished with total failure of Baku. At the same time  Baku propagandists are trying hard to ignore well-known facts and  evidences, including the assessment of some of the former  high-ranking officials of Azerbaijan, human rights defenders,  journalists and residents of Khojaly on the above events, denying the  false official version. In other words, the tragic events in Khojaly  became a political propaganda capital of the official Baku.
