The academician said that on the 27th of September in 2020 we started the Patriotic War against the military aggression of Armenia, which ended with the victory of Azerbaijan. “This Memorial Day has two meanings: we commemorate our martyrs and at the same time we return to those historical days again”. Continuing his thoughts the academician said that it was not an easy victory for the Azerbaijani people. Touching upon the events of recent days, the General Director noted that the struggle continues more sharply today.
