Baku Media Center to show documentary on Shusha liberation [VIDEO]
By Laman Ismayilova
A documentary film "Shusha, you are free!" will be screened on the eve of Victory Day, celebrated on November 8.
The film is co-produced by Baku Media Center and Salnamafilm studio with the support of the Azerbaijan Culture Ministry.
The documentary provides insight into some interesting details of the "Shusha operation".
The film also contains interviews with Azerbaijani valiant soldiers and officers - participants of the operation and exclusive footage taken during the battles for the city of Shusha.
Shusha was liberated from around thirty years of Armenian occupation during the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh War.
The clashes between Armenia and Azerbaijan resumed after Armenia launched large-scale attacks on Azerbaijani forces and civilians on September 27, 2020.
The 44 days of war ended with the Russian brokered peace deal signed on November 10 by the Azerbaijani, Russian and Armenian leaders.
The peace agreement ended the 30-years-old conflict between Baku and Yerevan over Azerbaijan’s Nagorno-Karabakh region that along with the seven adjacent districts came under the occupation of Armenian armed forces in the war in the early 1990s.
For about three decades, Armenia failed to implement the UN Security Council resolutions demanding the withdrawal of the Armenian troops, which was the main obstacle to the resolution of the conflict.
