Ambassador of Ukraine to Azerbaijan Vladyslav Kanevskyi expressed his condolences on the anniversary of the Khojaly genocide on his Facebook account, APA reports.

"Indescribable pain and sadness fill our hearts on this day. Khojaly tragedy is engraved in the history of mankind as one of the most tragic pages. Could anyone imagine that the events could be repeated in the center of Europe in the XXI century? What the Russian Federation is doing against Ukraine today proves once again that, impunity creates new crimes", the Ukrainian diplomat wrote.

Note that on February 25, 1992, Armenian armed forces attacked the city of Khojaly with the help of armored vehicles and military personnel of the USSR’s 366th Motorized Rifle Regiment stationed in Khankandi. As a result of the Khojaly genocide, which was a tragedy of a century, 613 civilians, as well as 63 children, 106 women, and 70 old people were killed atrociously, 8 families were annihilated, 25 children lost both parents, 130 children lost one parent, 487 were wounded (76 of them are children), some 1,275 innocent residents were taken hostage, while the fate of 150 people including 68 women and 26 children remains unknown.
