Blood January

28 years pass since 20 January tragedy written in blood to Azerbaijan’s independence history

The massacre committed against the civilian population, who struggled for freedom, sovereignty, independence, as if happened yesterday. People will never forget that day. Every year, tens of thousands of our compatriots visit the Alley of Martyrs in Baku, which is the highest holy place for all of us, pay tribute to brave sons and daughters who stood up staunchly for the sake of independence, and lay fresh flowers in front of the graves.

Paying tribute to the memory of our martyrs is one of priority areas maintained in the spotlight of the state. The approval of action plan for holding the 28th anniversary of the 20 January tragedy by the order of the head of the Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan is a good example.
