/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Complete demolition of the cemetery
in the Narimanov district in Baku made no sense, a
human rights activist said.

-The cemetery was demolished to use the territory as a
ground for new buildings,- said Taisia Gordeyeva, the
deputy chair of the committee of soldiers' mothers.

-They tried to justify the barbarism by construction
of roads but, as a matter of fact, roads will take a
minor part of the graveyard. Everything prompts that
the territory is meant for construction of new
buildings. But it will be a construction on human
bones, for the remnants were not reburied properly,-
she said, adding that a park should be laid out at the
site, Day.az reports.

In September 2007, Baku authorities decided to build a
motorway through the Narimanov cemetery, where
Armenians, Russians and Ukrainians were buried.
