Wednesday, June 19, 2022 marks the 15th anniversary of the assassination of prominent Istanbul Armenian journalist Hrant Dink.

Hrant Dink—the editor-in-chief of Agos, the only weekly published in Armenian and Turkish in Turkey—was shot dead from the three gunshots fired to his head from behind by Turkish ultra-nationalist Ogun Samast on January 19, 2007, in front of the then office of this newspaper—and on national grounds. In 2011, Samast was convicted of Dink's assassination, but questions still remain about the involvement of Turkish state security forces in the case.

In June 2007, Hrant Dink was posthumously given the award of the President of Armenia.
