A grave crime was committed against innocent Azerbaijani civilians by the Armenian army 24 years ago, on February 25-26, 1992, which became and remains the largest massacre of modern times in the former USSR. On that day, the military units of Armenia, supported by the Russia's 366th motorized infantry regiment, seized the town of Khojaly, in the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan, and committed a massacre. This was the culmination of the Armenian aggression and occupation of Azerbaijan. On that day, the Armenian government's efforts to rid Nagorno-Karabakh of its ethnic Azerbaijani population, resulted in almost 2,000 of innocent civilians, mostly women, children, and elderly, being killed, wounded, or taken hostage by the Armenian military forces.
