“We went on a two-day visit to Shusha, the cultural capital of Azerbaijan. The scenes we encountered were both heartbreaking and joyful.

Finally, I was lucky to see my hometown - Shusha. Along the way, we witnessed warlike landscapes (landscapes created in the occupied territories), damage caused to nature by the occupiers, ecogenocide. During the visit, we observed the results of vandalism and destruction

committed by Armenia during the occupation, got acquainted with the current situation in the liberated territories, the historical heritage of the city, as well as landscaping.

Along the way, the destroyed villages of the Fizuli, Khojavend and Shusha regions succeeded each other. Landscapes contaminated with mines and various explosives, enemy defenses and trenches were completely destroyed. Restoration work was also noticeable in the territories liberated from the enemy.

The walls of the Shusha fortress, the shot statues of famous figures of Azerbaijani culture - Bulbul, Uzeyir Hajibeyli, Khurshudbanu Natavan, Bulbul house-museum, Yukhari Govkhar Agha mosque, Vagif mausoleum, visited the administrative and residential buildings that have been used by Armenians during 30 years.
