The "25 children", whose parents were brutally killed by Armenians during the Khojaly genocide, addressed a letter to the presidents of Russia, the United States of America and France, the co-chairs of the Minsk Group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).

Report presents the letter as it is:

– Dear Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron!

The states you lead have been co-chairmen of the Minsk Group for a long time, which took upon itself the mission of liberating the territories of Azerbaijan occupied by Armenia. The city of Khojaly is also under Armenian occupation. On the night of February 25-26, 1992 Khojaly was razed to the ground, 613 of our relatives were brutally killed.

We had high hopes for your countries to stop the vandalism we have faced over the past years, and waited for the liberation of our lands every time your representatives of the Minsk Group visited Azerbaijan. Unfortunately, we could not see it.

During the genocide, both parents of 25 children were brutally killed in Khojaly. You may not be able to imagine it, but then we were 1 to 10 years old.

They burned our parents, shot them and skinned in front of our eyes. We were children then, we didn't understand what was happening. Armenians made us experience horrors that will never be erased from our memory. We were deprived of parental care and family warmth.

Now we want to go back to our lands. We thought that the United States of America, Russia and France, co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, would help us return to our homes, to our homeland, where our parents were killed and went missing. Unfortunately, we see the opposite. While trying to go home, the Minsk Group co-chairs blocked the way to our house.

But, why?

Don’t you think that supporting the Armenians who committed the genocide against us does not mean being an accomplice to the perpetrators of that genocide?

You do not help children who have survived the genocide, at least do not prevent them from returning back home.

Answer the question, don't you really consider us human? Don't we have the right to live in our own home?!

Denying us the right to return home is a violation of international law. We want to go back home.

We want to revive our Khojaly, which was subjected to the Armenian genocide and was wiped off the face of the earth. We want to revive our Khojaly, which was subjected to the Armenian genocide and wiped off the face of the earth. We want the souls of our fathers and mothers, brutally murdered in Khojaly, to find peace. Are you not afraid of God? Has humanity really lost so much value for you?

After all, you claim that your countries protect human rights not only at home but also abroad. If so, protect our rights as well.

If you leave our appeal unanswered, you will have confirmed your complicity in the perpetrators of the Khojaly genocide.

The Co-Chair countries of the OSCE Minsk Group call upon Armenia and Azerbaijan to continue implementing their obligations entirely under the November 9 statement in Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts, as well as their previous ceasefire commitments. The Co-Chair countries highlight the significance of the Russian Federation's measures, in agreement with Azerbaijan and Armenia, to guarantee the non-renewal of hostilities. They also call for the full and prompt departure from the region of all foreign mercenaries, and call upon all parties to facilitate this departure.

The Co-Chair countries remind Armenia and Azerbaijan of their obligation to comply with the requirements of international humanitarian law, in particular with regard to the exchange of prisoners of war and the repatriation of remains. They underline the importance of guaranteeing conditions for the voluntary, safe, dignified, and sustainable return of people displaced by the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, including during the recent hostilities. They underscore the importance of protecting historical and religious heritage in and around Nagorno-Karabakh. The Co-Chair countries call on Azerbaijan and Armenia to cooperate fully with the relevant international organizations to implement their obligations in these areas and ensure humanitarian access.

The Co-Chair countries appeal to the international community, including ICRC, UN institutions, and other appropriate structures and OSCE Minsk Group individual countries to take concrete steps to improve the humanitarian situation in Nagorno-Karabakh and adjacent areas in a coordinated way. The Co-Chairs also reiterated their strong support for the continuing work of the Personal Representative of the OSCE Chair-in-Office (PRCiO) and his team.

The Co-Chair countries urge Armenia and Azerbaijan to take advantage of the current ceasefire to negotiate a lasting and sustainable peace agreement under the Co-Chairs' auspices. In that context, the Co-Chair countries urge the parties to receive the Co-Chairs in the region at the earliest opportunity and commit to substantive negotiations to resolve all outstanding issues according to an agreed timetable.

The Co-Chair countries of the OSCE Minsk Group recall their firm commitment to the non-use or threat of force to settle disputes. They reiterate their consistent and united position in favor of a negotiated, comprehensive, and sustainable settlement of all remaining core substantive issues of the conflict in line with the basic principles and elements well-known to Armenia and Azerbaijan. The Co-Chair countries remain fully committed to pursuing this objective in line with their long-standing efforts to promote peace, stability, and prosperity in the region.
