Armenian pogroms in Baku continuation of 1915 Genocide

Armenian pogroms in Baku were the continuation of 1915 Genocide, YSU professor Alexander Manasyan said.

"It was an attempt to exterminate a population which was engaged in building the Azerbaijan SSR along with Muslims. Armenia and the entire world should give an adequate assessment of those tragic events," he said.

Armenian pogrom in Baku

The Armenian pogrom in Baku was part of Azerbaijani authorities' anti-Armenian program calculated to bring about the destruction of the town's Armenian population. The seven-day pogroms perpetrated by Azerbaijani SSR broke out on January 13, 1990, leaving 300 Armenians dead. The real number of victims remains unclear to date.
