    US Congressman Brad Sherman issued a statement on the anniversary of the pogroms in Sumgait and Baku, in which he recalled how in 1988 in Sumgait, and then in Kirovabad (Gandzak), and in 1990 in Baku, as a result of anti-Armenian sentiments of the Azerbaijani authorities, pogroms of Armenians were carried out, civilians were killed and seriously injured, women and girls were raped. 

He stated that the Azerbaijani government should be brought to justice by the international community for the hatred shown towards the Armenian people for decades, which continues to this day. "Such crimes against humanity should never remain unrecognized or avoid responsibility, regardless of whether they occurred yesterday, 30 or 100 years ago," Sherman said.
