The father and son Aliyev’s pictures are being removed from the streets of the Azerbaijani capital city of Baku. 

The late and the incumbent Azerbaijani presidents’ gold- and bronze-lettered quotes, which are placed in underground passages, likewise are being removed, reported Contact.az news agency of Azerbaijan.

The executive authorities, however, do not respond to the reporters’ query as to why this is carried out.

But Contact.az assumes that this is done because of the forthcoming First European Games, which the Azerbaijani capital city will host this summer.

Azerbaijan has been criticized in the lead-up to the 2015 European Games. Contact.az noted that, against this backdrop, the Azerbaijani authorities are attempting to eliminate evidence indicating traces of an authoritarian regime in the country, since numerous European journalists will be in Azerbaijan to cover the European Games.
