In her appeal to international organizations and embassies of Azerbaijan recognised in foreign countries, the Ombudsman emphasized that the tragic event of January 20th occupies a special place for its scale among the terror attacks of past years directed against mankind. She made the statement in a briefing held at the Ombudsman's Office. She attributed the January 20th tragedy as genocide committed against the people of Azerbaijan.
