The authoritative French portal Atlantico published a report from the city of Aghdam.
Axar.az reports that the author of the article is Sebastian Bussua, a Middle East expert and doctor of political sciences.
He recently visited the ruins of the city and witnessed the Armenian vandalism. According to the researcher, Aghdam, once a cultural center, is now reminiscent of the city of spirits.
"The city of Aghdam in Karabakh has located 360 km from Baku. The city is a symbol not only of the 44-day military operation that ended with a trilateral declaration signed on November 10 but of the entire 30-year war.
Aghdam was occupied in 1993, during the first Karabakh conflict, by an Armenian separatist government and army seeking to realize a greater Armenian dream, like many other cities in the region.
As a result of the war, 800,000 Azerbaijanis became refugees or internally displaced persons and were expelled from their homes.
The occupation of Aghdam was not aimed at resettling the Armenian population here in the future, but at erasing all traces of Azerbaijanis living here before. The collapse of the Soviet Empire gave rise to new nationalist appetites, and as a result, Aghdam was erased from the stage of history as one of the traditional multicultural cities in the region,” the author said.
