United Nations Security Council
On January 19,1990, Mikhail Gorbachev who broke the rules epitomized by 119th article of the USSR Constitution, as well as, 71th article of the Azerbaijan SSR Constitution, sent troops to Baku. State of emergency was declared only 8 hours after those murderous incidents. One of the crimes against humanity - mass murder of Azerbaijanis by Soviet Union troops in “Black January “ will always remain as a bloody page in the history of humanity. These incidents were the very first stages of the Independence Movement. Ominously, this crime was not recognized and commemorated at international level. According to official estimates 134 civilians were killed, at least 600 people were injured, including representatives of 5 nations, children and women.
