Today commemoration events are taking place in Armenia and Artsakh devoted to the Sumgait pogroms anniversary. A commemoration ceremony was held in Stepanakert Memorial Complex as well.

Sarasar Saryan, chairman of the Union of Armenian Refugees from Azerbaijan, noted in an interview with Artsakhinfo, that in order not to allow the repetition of such events, the international community should not encourage indifference to Azerbaijan's false propaganda distorting the reality. In his opinion, the international community should have a clear position on this issue, while Azerbaijan obviously takes advantage of the absence of that position.
