The crimes committed by the successive governments of the Republic of Azerbaijan against the Armenian people, against humanity and civilization, over the past 100 years

The crimes committed by the successive governments of the Republic of Azerbaijan against the Armenian people, against humanity and civilization, over the past 100 years, are a copy of the handwriting and program of the successive governments of the Republic of Turkey. We cannot cover a longer time interval, since an artificial state called Azerbaijan was created in 1918.


1905-1906 – participation in riots against Armenians in the Caucasus, the persecution and murder of Armenians, the seizure of their property.

1918 – participation in the massacre of Armenians in Baku by Turkish troops, theft of their property.

1918-1921 – armed attacks and violence against the Armenian population of Karabakh, Nakhijevan (Nakhichevan), Zangezur, aggression against the Republic of Armenia, groundless territorial claims, the spread of instability in the region.

1920 – massacre of the Armenian population of Shushi, arson of the city, theft of property of the Armenians of this city.

July 5, 1921 – the adoption of an unlawful decision to join Artsakh to Azerbaijan at a meeting of the Caucasian Bureau of the Communist party of Russia, not taking into account the relevant decision of the League of Nations and the opinion of the people of Artsakh as a democratic tool for demarcating the borders between Soviet Armenia and Soviet Azerbaijan. As a result of procedural violations, it was decided to forcibly secede Artsakh from Armenia, subject to the formation of national autonomy with broad powers within Soviet Azerbaijan. Thus, most of the historical Armenian and Armenian-populated areas were transferred to Soviet Azerbaijan.

1921 – signing of the illegal Moscow Treaty, annexation of the Nakhijevan region under the guise of “guardianship”. The occupation and exploitation of the Nakhijevan region, the crimes and persecution of the indigenous Armenians of Nakhijevan and, finally, the emigration of Nakhijevan Armenians.

1921-1988 – occupation and exploitation of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR), crimes against Armenians of Artsakh.

1930s up to today – the forced assimilation of the peoples living in Azerbaijan, Nakhijevan and Artsakh – Armenians, Udis, Talysh, Tats, Avars, Lezgins, and against many of them carried out acts of genocide.

1960s up to now – falsification of the history and culture of the peoples of the region, in particular Armenians, the destruction or appropriation of the objects of civilizational, historical and architectural values.

1988 – suppression of any manifestation of the will and right of Armenians of Artsakh to live freely and freely develop – through mass killings, harassment, intimidation, imprisonment of Armenians.

1988 – the shameful looting of building materials intended for the restoration of the Spitak earthquake zone, as well as humanitarian aid collected for the disaster zone.

1988-1990 – Genocide and deportation of the Armenian population of Azerbaijan, robbery of property.

1991-1994 – large-scale aggression against the NKR and the border regions of the Republic of Armenia (RA).

2005 – The Republic of Azerbaijan is a state whose government destroyed and continues to destroy many of the ancient Armenian monuments, churches and cultural heritage of the Armenian people. Evidence of all this is the destruction of 89 medieval Armenian churches, 5480 khachkars (stone crosses) and 22,700 burials located in the Armenian territories of Azerbaijan, Artsakh and Nakhijevan, including 400 khachkars in Agulis and the destruction of thousands of medieval original and ancient khachkars in the city of Jugha in the Nakhijevan region in 2005 year.

April 2016 – the outbreak of a four-day war and aggression against the Armenians of Artsakh and the Republic of Artsakh, the committing of new war crimes.

1988-2019 – blockade of NKR, RA, obstruction of the right to free development.

1988-2019 – Under conditions of weak control of the international community, the Republic of Azerbaijan is building up its military potential, surpassing and violating all established permissible weapons standards, inciting to regional instability. The authorities of the Republic of Azerbaijan sow Armenophobia, xenophobia, racism, incite blind ethnic hatred, propaganda and preparation for new wars and genocide, especially among the younger generation.


Concluding observations

This is an incomplete list of crimes against humanity and against Armenians committed by successive governments of the Republic of Azerbaijan over the past hundred years.

To all this, we add that the calculation of the amount of damage caused to the Armenian people, as well as the assessment and calculation of the total damage caused to the Armenian people and Armenia as a result of other crimes after 1923, has not yet been carried out.

However, the crimes listed above directly indicate the losses that can and should be calculated and thus should be prepared a full package of the true amount of compensation for damage caused to Armenians and Armenia as a result of the Armenian Genocide.

Another important point as a final word.

The massacre and deportation of Armenians during the period 1894-1923 constitute a genocide according to the UN Convention “On the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide”, dated December 9, 1948. The Armenian Genocide is to be condemned in accordance with the UN Convention “On the Inapplicability of the Statute of Limitations to War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity”, dated November 26, 1968.

 There is every reason to assert that the Armenian Genocide continues to this day, and will continue until this crime is condemned and compensation for damage is carried out, and until the Armenians have created the political, legal and national-state solid and unshakable foundations to ensure the realization of their right to life, development and progress.
