The Azerbaijani society is filled with hatred towards the Armenians. This is what Representative of the Republic of Armenia before the European Court of Human Rights Yeghishe Kirakosyan said during the hearings in the United Nations International Court of Justice.
“Almost all Armenians are Christians, and the Armenian Apostolic Church is the oldest Christian church in the world. The Armenian language is an independent branch of the Indo-European language families and uses its own unique alphabet. Due to this distinct ethnic identity, Armenians have experienced erratic hatred and countless prosecutions. They have also been subjected to genocidal massacres and program. Sadly, this continues to this day. In the fall of 2020, Azerbaijan launched the international armed conflict which President Aliyev has openly admitted, and it is the most recent link to this chain of ethnic violence and hate. The ethnic hatred that Azerbaijan's authorities spread almost on a daily basis is so pervasive that nearly the whole Azerbaijani society is affected. Generations upon generations are indoctrinated into this culture of fear and hate of anything and everything linked to Armenia. But I would like to emphasize that the case Armenia brought to the Court after nearly one year of failed negotiations is currently under your jurisdiction. The importance of your decision on provisional measures and the impact that these decisions will have cannot be emphasized enough,” Kirakosyan said.
