The policy of Armenophobia promoted by the Azerbaijani authorities at the state level and the fact of ethnic cleansing of Armenians in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) are substantiated by new developments.
In particular, the Ministry of Transport, Communication and High Technologies of Azerbaijan has issued “Azerbaijan 2020” postage stamps, one of which is an open propaganda of the extermination of the Armenians of Artsakh.
In the stamp, a man in a medical uniform, chemically disinfects Artsakh from Armenians with a special tool, openly presenting them as “dirt”.
This stamp once again proves the claims of the Human Rights Defender of Armenia that Azerbaijan pursues a policy of genocide of Armenians on the basis of ethnicity, only for the reason that the people living in Artsakh are Armenians.
The propaganda of Armenophobia, carried out at the state level, has been implemented consistently for years. The atrocities and the torture committed by servicemen of the Azerbaijani armed forces are the results of that propaganda of animosity and the policy of Armenophobia.
The root causes of all these are substantiated by the evidence of the joint ad hoc public report of the Human Rights Defenders of Armenia and Artsakh and respective analysis (“Organized Hate Speech and Animosity Towards Ethnic Armenians in Azerbaijan as Root Causes of Ethnically based Torture and Inhuman Treatment by Azerbaijani Armed Forces”).
The Report also evidences that Armenophobia in Azerbaijan is in a closed chain; it is generated by the Azerbaijani authorities, including the highest authorities, afterwards it is widely used almost identically and encouraged by cultural, sports and public figures, and receive public praise, frequently targeting children.
This is exactly all that needs to be taken into consideration during the process of the demarcation of the borders of the Republic of Armenia, in order to guarantee the right to life, and the right to physical and mental immunity of Armenians.
