Falsification of lists of the dead

The data on the number of residents of Khojaly village who died in February 1992 near Aghdam town have been studied insufficiently. Whereas Western sources estimate the number of victims at 200-300

(Human Rights Watch, Azerbaijan: Seven Years of Conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh, New York, Washington, Los Angeles, London, Brussels, 1994, page 7), according to official data released by Azerbaijan, the number of the dead is much higher – the official figure is 613, out of which 106 are women, 63 infants (some sources indicate the figure of 83 and president Ilham Aliyev went further and mentioned the figure of "more than one hundred"), 70 are old people and the rest are supposedly men capable of fighting and holding a weapon.

There are several official Azerbaijani sources providing name lists of the dead, disseminated in different variations on websites (official and amateur), in books, monographs and reports: victim list published on the websites of Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry (screenshot) and Azerbaijan's embassies abroad (screenshot), the list published on the website of public and political edition Our Age (screenshot), and the well-known list of Azerbaijani MP Havva Mammadova, published in her book titled Khojaly: Shahids and Shehids (copy).

Note that the lists are so much different from each other that there is an impression that those are different events and different people.

The only thing those three lists have in common is Azerbaijani agitprop, name "Victims of Khojaly," raw data on the number of dead (613), and distribution on sex and age: women (106), old people (70) and children (63). The number of men is concealed diffidently.

Thus, there are at least three official sources providing name list of the Khojaly people who died near Aghdam. Below is a detailed analysis of each of the lists.
