Visits of international and local media organizations to the liberated villages of Fuzuli district and the city of the region were organized. Representatives of Al Jazeera, New York Times, IRNA, Anadolu Agency, HABER Global, Russia1, Euronews and other international media organizations took part in the visit initiated by Hikmet Hajiyev , the aide to the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan and the head of the Foreign Policy Department of the Presidential Administration. President of the International Eurasian Press Fund, a member of the UN ECOSOC with Consultative Status,  Umud Mirzayev, also attended the visit to Fuzuli, which was liberated after 27 years.

The visit started from Gorgan village of Fuzuli. Powerful fortifications of Armenian military units destroyed by the Azerbaijani army as well as burned and destroyed Armenian military equipment, remnants of military ammunition were demonstrated to the media. Destroyed village cemeteries, ancient tombs, roads, ruined settlements along the road were brought to the attention of the media. Later, ANAMA demonstrated to the media the operation neutralizing phosphorus ammunition used by Armenian military units during the Patriotic War, the use of which is prohibited by international conventions.

The procession of media members moved to Fuzuli. Assistant to the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Hikmet Hajiyev called the destruction in the Fuzuli district as well as in other liberated parts of Karabakh the greatest barbarism in the modern world after the Second World War. He said in an interview with Al Jazeera television that the Azerbaijani side had assessed the destruction and would sue the Armenian side for vandalism.

IEPF President and his deputy Ramil Azizov, who has been working with Al Jazeera television since the beginning of the Patriotic War, have been closely involved in Al Jazeera's daily coverage of the war. They fought together on the media front. An international report on war crimes committed by Armenian military units against Azerbaijani civilians during the Great Patriotic War, prepared by the IEPF observation mission, has been presented to the world as a serious alternative document.

"Today, it is very difficult for us to highlight this situation in our homeland. This bitter scene of Fuzuli district, Fuzuli city breaks a person's heart. Imagine a city civilization that had been created for centuries, completely destroyed. It does not fit into any humanity, no principles of international law, and no moral norms. No matter how hard it is to watch the vandalism, it is a source of pride to visit our homeland after 27 years. We bow before the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, the Azerbaijani army and the spirit of our martyrs. These shameful scenes are bitter landscapes not only in the Fuzuli district but in all the occupied territories of Karabakh," Umud Mirzayev said.

"I watched the graves of our destroyed village with heartache along the way. I could not hold back my tears. The international community should not be indifferent to this atrocity," the IEPF vice-president said.

Representatives of the IEPF informed the guests about the Fizuli region and took an active part in preparing a report on the region. Information about the destroyed residential areas in Fuzuli, the Haji Akbar Mosque of the XVIII century, and Theater House of the Fuzuli City, the remains of the Fuzuli City Club, the city stadium, and other socio-cultural facilities that fell victim to vandalism by Armenian military units brought to the attention of international media. The report from Fuzuli, accompanied by the IEPF, will be broadcast on Al Jazeera television today.

It should be noted that the city of Fuzuli and more than 70 villages of Fuzuli district, which had been occupied by Armenian military units since August 23, 1993, were liberated from the enemy by the victorious Azerbaijani Army during the Patriotic war dated from September 27 to November 10, 2020.
