The 30th anniversary of the January 20 tragedy

Today, Azerbaijan commemorates the 30th anniversary of the January 20 tragedy.


On January 20, 1990, the Soviet army forces entered Baku to suppress the masses protesting the USSR-supported Armenian aggression based on territorial claims against Azerbaijan.


On the night of January 19-20, 1990, 147 people were killed, 744 were injured and 841 were illegally arrested after Soviet troops entered Baku. The Soviet troops also destroyed 200 apartments and houses, as well as private and public property.


The January 20 tragedy brought huge losses and death of innocent people. But it also demonstrated the spirit and pride of Azerbaijani nation. Azerbaijanis gained the independence they were dreaming of, and the country achieved sovereignty.


The employees of Black Sea Terminal organized a photo exhibition. The company’s personnel were able to get familiar with information dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the January 20 tragedy.
