  • by Western Armenia, June 14, 2024 in Patrimony

Baku blogger Kyamram Razmovar, who stands out on the Internet for his hatred of Armenians, videos mocking Armenians and preaching intolerance, published a video in which it can be seen that the memorial to the fallen freedom fighters of the 51st battalion was desecrated by Baku.

This is reported by the independent academic platform "Monument Watch of the Cultural Heritage of Artsakh".

The monument is painted with red paint, with different inscriptions, the lower parts are destroyed.

“Hartak” mentions the resolution "On the Destruction of Cultural Heritage in Artsakh" adopted by the European Parliament in 2022, where the European Parliament obliged Baku to ensure the exclusion of any interference in the territories of Armenian heritage:

to maintain the principles of authenticity of the heritage, and to carry out restoration works exclusively in accordance with that principle.

The desecration of the monument also violates the criterion of cultural significance of the heritage established by Burra's in 1999 by statute.
