People in Baku after January 20 tragedy in 1990 (10 photos)

January 20 (1990) is marked as a bloody, dark date in Azerbaijan’s history. On that day in 1990, Soviet Union troops entered Azerbaijani capital of Baku at night to suppress the ongoing protests against Armenia’s aggressive actions and the population’s sovereignty demands.

A lot of innocent people died on that day, and the memories of that nightmare will forever haunt those who saw it firsthand.

Below are some photos of people, shot right after the Jan. 20, 1990 events in Baku. For more on the subject see this gallery, and also this one.
