20 January 1990 has been commemorated as National Mourning Day. Twenty-eight years have passed since bloody January. The team of Azerbaijan Weightlifting Federation (AZE WF) visited the Alley of Martyrs. Our team, who attended the ceremony, expressed their respect for the martyrs’ spirit and laid carnations in front of the graves.
20 January 1990 went down in the history of modern Azerbaijan as one of the most tragic and, at the same time, heroic dates for our people. We wish God’s mercy to the martyrs who are our pride source!
