Today, Azerbaijan commemorates the 29th anniversary of the January 20 tragedy.
January 20 is a day that went down in history of Azerbaijan's fight for independence and territorial integrity.
On January 20, 1990, the Soviet army forces entered Baku to suppress the masses protesting the USSR-supported Armenian aggression based on territorial claims against Azerbaijan.
The result was an unprecedented tragedy for Azerbaijan. Valiant sons and daughters of Azerbaijan put the country’s freedom, honor and dignity above everything else, sacrificed their lives and became martyrs.
On the night of January 19-20, 1990, 137 people were killed, 744 were injured and 841 were illegally arrested after Soviet troops entered Baku. The Soviet troops also destroyed 200 apartments and houses, as well as private and public property.
The January 20 tragedy brought huge losses and death of innocent people. But it also demonstrated the spirit and pride of Azerbaijani nation, which couldn't stand the betrayal of the criminal empire led by Mikhail Gorbachev.
Azerbaijanis gained the independence they were dreaming of, and the country achieved sovereignty.
Despite that many years have passed since those bloody days, Azerbaijanis remember the dreadful night that took many innocent lives and marks the anniversary of the January 20 tragedy every year.

I found this conversation with Jasmine Opperman particularly insightful. Would South Africa be prepared to respond to a Terrorist attack in the country. Whether a bombing or mass shooting?? Check out the full interview on eNCA.com. #politics#nationalsecurity#state#currentaffairs#sa

LYRICS #mcm 😍💗💘👀 [Intro: All]
As long as you love me [Verse 1: Nick, with Brian]
Although loneliness has always been a friend of mine
I'm leaving my life in your hands
People say I'm crazy and that I am blind
Risking it all in a glance
And how you got me blind is still a mystery
I can't get you out of my head
Don't care what is written in your history
As long as you're here with me [Chorus: All]
I don't care, who you are, where you're from
What you did as long as you love me
Who you are, where you're from
Don't care what you did as long as you love me [Verse 2: Brian with Kevin]
Every little thing that you have said and done
Feels like it's deep within me, ooh, ooh, ooh
Doesn't really matter if you're on the run
It seems like we're meant to be
