"Situation was difficult when the first Democratic Republic was established. Certainly, Azerbaijani people gained independence 104 years ago as a result of the collapse of the Russian Empire," said President Ilham Aliyev at a meeting with residents during the opening ceremony of the first stage of the "Smart Village" project has been held in Aghali village, Zangilan district on May 27, APA reports.

The Head of state noted that the first republic could not survive long, collapsed, and survived for a period of about two years: "It is true that many important steps were taken and we always respectfully commemorate the founders of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic. However, we should also know that independence lasted for two years in total. Then, the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic collapsed, could not protect independence, and the people of Azerbaijan were deprived of freedom. Besides, all of us well know that Armenian nationalists started aggression against our people and the young Democratic Republic at that time, and as a result of it, the people of Azerbaijan suffered a lot."
