Crimes of the Republic of Azerbaijan against the Armenian people, against humanity and civilization, over the past 100 years, 22․09․2022

Crimes committed by the changing 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 changing governments of the Republic of Turkey. We cannot cover a longer time interval, since an artificial state called Azerbaijan was created in 1918 year.


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

  2. Participation in the massacre of Baku Armenians by Turkish troops in 1918, the theft of their property.

  3. 1918-1921 – armed attacks and violence against the Armenian population of Karabakh, Nakhichevan, Zangezur, aggression against the Republic of Armenia, groundless territorial claims, the spread of instability in the region.

  4. The massacre of the Armenian population of Shushi in 1920, the arson of the city, the theft of property of the Armenians of the city.

  5. The adoption of an illegal decision on the accession of Artsakh to Azerbaijan. On July 5, 1921, at a meeting of the Caucasian Bureau of the Communist Party of Russia, without taking into account the relevant decision of the League of Nations and the opinion of the people of Artsakh as a democratic instrument for demarcating the borders between Soviet Armenia and Soviet Azerbaijan, in violation of the resolution on accession, as a result of procedural violations, it was adopted a decision on the forcible separation of 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.

  6. The signing of the illegal Moscow Treaty in 1921, the annexation of the Nakhichevan region under the guise of the name of guardianship. The occupation and exploitation of the Nakhichevan region, the crimes and persecution of the indigenous Armenians of Nakhichevan and, finally, the emigration of Nakhichevan Armenians.

  7. 1921-1988 – occupation and exploitation of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, crimes against Armenians of Artsakh.

  8. 1930s up to today – the forced assimilation of the peoples living in Azerbaijan, Nakhichevan and Artsakh – Armenians, Udi, Talyshevs, Tats, Avars, Lezgins, and many of them have committed acts of genocide.

  9. 1960s up to now – falsification of the history and culture of the peoples of the region, in particular Armenians, the destruction or appropriation of civilizational, historical and architectural values.

  10. 1988 — any manifestation of the will and right of Armenians of Artsakh to live freely and freely develop was suppressed by mass killings, persecution, intimidation, imprisonment of Armenians.

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

  12. 1988-1990, Genocide and deportation of the Armenian population of Azerbaijan, robbery of property.

  13. 1991-1994 – large-scale aggression against the NKR and the border regions of the Republic of Armenia.

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

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

  16. 1988-2022 blockade of NKR, RA, obstruction of the right to free development, blockade.

  17. The period 1988-2022 – 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.

  18. 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.

  19. On September 27, 2020, a large-scale – unprecedented aggression of the alliance of Azerbaijan and Turkey, Pakistan and Islamic extremist groups of the Middle East against the Republic of Artsakh took place. In the arsenal of the aggressors, in addition to modern deadly and prohibited weapons, there were also all those means and methods that the authorities of the Ottoman Empire, starting from 1894-1923, used against the peoples of the region and citizens of the Ottoman Empire, against Armenians, Greeks and Assyrians…

The Azerbaijani-Turkish aggression and war crime against Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), Armenia and the Armenian people on September 27, 2020, using international terrorist groups and Israeli-Turkish UAVs, once again proved that this is another war of barbarism against civilization, and that the liberation of the Armenian Highlands, the cradle and the crossroads of civilizations is a historical and vital necessity for the survival of humanity and the further development of civilization.


Concluding observations

This is not a complete 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 prepare 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 committed in the period 1894 – 1923. constitute genocide according to the UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide him, 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 firm and unshakable foundations to ensure the realization of their right to life, development and progress.
