The ministry takes consistent measures to provide social support to martyrs' families, war veterans and civilians affected by the war.
In the post-war period after November 2020, those social support measures have already covered around 26,000 citizens of these categories. In addition, the ministry involved around 7,000 citizens, including members of martyrs' families in an employment program in the post-war period.
Some 2,904 servicemen of the Azerbaijani armed forces were killed in the Second Karabakh War that started with Armenia's firing at Azerbaijani civilians and positions. Over 100 Azerbaijani civilians were also killed during the war that lasted from September 27 to November 10.
Azerbaijan has allocated over AZN 9 million ($5m) to compensate damages to its citizens who suffered from Armenia's aggression during the six-week war over Azerbaijan's Karabakh region.
