Please join the U.S. Azerbaijanis Network's annual campaign on Sumgayit events of February 28, 1988, aimed at educating our elected officials and the community at large on the facts surrounding the Kremlin-directed and KGB-orchestrated events which took place in the city of Sumgait. It is important to set the record straight on the issue to better understand the turbulence of the time, complexity of the Caucasus region and case in point on how rapidly relations between two ethnic communities can deteriorate, and lead one to an aggressive, expansionist behavior, occupying lands (17% of Azerbaijan), carrying out ethnic cleansing (over 800,000 Azerbaijani refugees and IDPs), and committing crimes against humanity like massacres in Khojaly, Malibeyli, Gushchular, Garadaghly and Aghdaban.
