Russia pressured Azerbaijan President Ilham Aliyev and other regional
leaders in 2008 to not recognize the Holodomor famine, which killed
millions in 1932-1933, as genocide against the Ukrainian people.

According to a cable from the U.S. Embassy in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan,
published on Nov. 29 by WikiLeaks, Britain's Prince Andrew, a frequent
visitor to the region, said that Aliyev had received a letter from
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev "telling him that if Azerbaijan
supported the designation of the Bolshevik artificial famine in
Ukraine as 'genocide' at the United Nations, 'then you can forget
about seeing Nagorno-Karabakh ever again.'"'
