At the July 12, 2021 session of the 47th session of the UN Human
Rights Council a special video message of Armenia’s Human Rights Defender was
broadcast setting forth the following:
Authorities of Azerbaijan continue to deepen the policy of
Armenophobia, continue to encourage enmity towards Armenians. Analysis of their
actions and public messages prove existence of institutional racist policy
clearly amounting to fascism.
Evidence-based reports of Armenia’s Human Rights Defender
confirm that the organized Hate Speech and Animosity have become Root Causes of
widely spread Ethnically-Based Torture and Inhuman Treatment by the Azerbaijani
military during the September-November 2020 war. Currently, this policy is
reflected in the actions of Azerbaijani military illegally present near the
bordering villages and on the roads between communities of Armenia.
Thorough analyses of over 300 videos of torture and cruel
treatment by the military of Azerbaijan have revealed their inspiration by
Azerbaijani high ranking officials through use of same words and expressions
while beheading, executing, torturing Armenian civilians and military
All of these have been confirmed with opening of a so-called
trophy park of wax figures of killed Armenians and their helmets in the capital
It is a park of chained people held as hostages. It is a museum
of human sufferings; a museum that is designed to promote racism.
All these facts confirm the genocidal policy of Azerbaijan
against the population of Artsakh and Armenia.
P.S. Only National Human Rights Institutions with “A”
international status have the opportunity to deliver such video messages.
Mr. Arman Tatoyan
The Human Rights Defender of Armenia
