30 Armenian citizens, the refugees from the Shahumian region of NKR and Khanlar region of Azerbaijan appealed to the European Court for receiving contribution from Baku. At present the letters are being discussed in Strasbourg. The court is likely to examine the issue within 2 or 3 years. To remind, the residents of the Shahumian region of NKR, occupied by the Azeri army in 1992 with the assistance of bribed Russian generals, were deported from their domicile while Azeris settled in their houses. To note, this settlement policy was set by the Azerbaijani government. The residents of the Khanlar region were mostly deported by 1991, during the “ring” operation carried out by the soviet army and the Azeri OMON.
