The fact that the international community has so far failed to give an adequate response to the pogroms of Armenians in Baku, Sumgait is the fault of the Armenian side, which failed to properly present the world historic truth, MP from Prosperous Armenia Party (PAP), Head of RA NA Standing Committee on European Integration Naira Zoharbyan told NEWS.am.
“Now we should step up our efforts and do everything possible to make the world be aware of the atrocities committed by Azerbaijanis against Armenians in these cities. I think the Armenian propaganda machine should be intensified in this direction and open eyes of the world community to the Azerbaijani lie, shed the light to historic truth and achieve international denunciation of Azerbaijan for its acts of atrocities,” she said.
This day, 21 years ago, tragic events that occurred in the multinational, but not at all tolerant, city of Baku, shocked the entire world. On January 13, 1990, after a regular rally of the national fascist Popular Front of Azerbaijan (PFA), several thousands of brutalized “humans” went raiding the homes of Armenian residents. The distinctive feature of the unprecedented ethnic pogroms in the capital of one of the Soviet republics – when the USSR was in its death throes – was that attacks and murders had been thoroughly planned, with lists of Armenians put up at the PFA headquarters.
