RA POLITICAL AND SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP PAID TRIBUTE TO THE MEMORY OF VICTIMS OF THE SUMGAIT POGROMS



On February 28, on the occasion of the 32nd anniversary of the Armenian pogroms in Sumgait in 1988 from 27 to 29 February, RA Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan with Chatholicos of All Armenians Garegin II, Deputy Prime Ministers Tigran Avinyan, Mher Grigoryan and other prominent officials visited Tsitsernakaberd hill and paid tribute to the victims of the crime.

The Prime Minister and Chatholicos laid wreaths and put flowers at the memorial of Sumgait victims, honoring the memory of the innocent martyrs.

Then, the other members of the delegation put flowers at the memorial honoring the memory of innocent victims.

The Catholicos of All Armenians, together with the clergy of the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, prayed for the peace of souls of those killed in Sumgait.

The delegation was accompanied by the Deputy Director of the AGMI Edita Gzoyan.

Wreaths by the names of the RA President Armen Sarkissian, and National Assembly were also laid. Earlier a message was addressed by the President Armen Sarkissian in the memory of the victims of the carnage organized in Soviet Azerbaijan and Day of Protection of the Rights of the Expelled Armenian Population:

''Recalling the tragic events, which happened more than 32 years ago, paying tribute to our compatriots, who became victims, and proclaiming February 28 in Armenia and Artsakh the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the Carnage Organized in Soviet Azerbaijan and Day of Protection of the Rights of the Expelled Armenian Population, we also send a message to the humankind that civilization cannot develop guided by fascism, national discrimination, and xenophobia''.
