Azerbaijan, Baku, March 30 / Trend M.Aliyev /
Today, Baku hosted the presentation of the "Genocide" documentary film on atrocities of the Armenian Dashnaks committed against the civilian population March 31, 1918 in Guba. The film was prepared by the Public Association of the Eurasian Institute of International Studies, with financial support of the State NGO Support Council under the Azerbaijani President. Etibar Mammadov is director and author of the film's screenplay.
Chief adviser to the film MP Ganira Pashayeva said the "Genocide" film is about people who have lost their family and their loved ones as a result of Armenian barbarism.
In March 1918, Stepan Shaumyan's Dashnak-Bolshevik government seized power and launched genocide against the Azerbaijani people. Under the decree signed by National Leader Heydar Aliyev in 1998, March 31 is marked as the Day of Azerbaijanis Genocide. The Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences (ANAS) reported that he genocide that began March 24, 1918 against the Azerbaijanis, led by Shaumian lasted several days. Up to 700,000 people were killed during this period in the Azerbaijani territory. During the March events, Armenians completely destroyed 75 Shamakhi, 122 Guba and 115 Zangazur villages.
According to Pashayeva, today the film is the most effective mean for the world community and the number of such films should be increased. Such films should be placed in virtual space so that conditions have been created to inform the people living far away from Azerbaijan about the tragedy, she added.
The English version of the film for its demonstrations in the U.S. and several European countries will be completed in April.
Pashayeva reminded National leader Heydar Aliyev's statement in connection with the Day of Azerbaijanis Genocide that set the task before the generation to bring the truth about Azerbaijan to the attention of world community through the facts.
"The Armenian lobby seeks to achieve acceptance by the parliaments of the world political decisions through its claims on the so-called "Armenian genocide ". For this reason, we must make a great effort in the information war," she added.
Azerbaijani Community in Nagorno-Karabakh Chief Bayram Safarov said the demonstation of the "Genocide" film spread in the world countries will significantly influence the world public's opinion.
"The film shows the barbarity of the Armenians towards the territory, population and culture of Azerbaijan on the real facts," he added.
Currently, there are sufficient facts confirming the genocide committed by Armenians, the director of the History Institute of the Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences (ANAS), MP Yagub Mammadov, said.
"One cannot meet in the world history such tortures committed by the Armenian bandits against the peaceful Azerbaijani population: murder of babies taken out of the maternal womb and the burning of intellectuals in the fire," he said.
