Today Armenia marks Day of innocently convicted people's rights protection
June 14 was proclaimed the Day of protection of the rights of innocently convicted people in Armenia at state level, on the initiative of the ARF “Dashnaktsutyun” party.
This date was established in memory of tens of thousands of repressed Armenians during the years of the Bolshevik dictatorship, when the deportation of peoples was one of the forms of political repression in the USSR.
As early as 1939, Armenians were resettled from Azerbaijan to Kazakhstan, and in the 1940s they were massively evicted from the Crimea and from the territory of Soviet Armenia. At that time, tens of thousands of Armenians were deported, including the indigenous people of Armenia.
Among the victims of repression were such prominent cultural figures as the poet Yeghishe Charents, Axel Bakunts, the sons of the poet Hovhannes Tumanyan.
Various memorable and solemn events take place on this day.
