As part of the new program of retrospective interpretation and presentation of facts, Azerbaijan continues to distort and forge even the obvious facts on the Aghdam events of 1992, despite the presence of chronicle, witnesses and logic.
After Gulali Binaliyev, "tortured in captivity" after returning to Azerbaijan, Panakh Maharramov, whose ears grew back after being cut off, and the wife of 6-year-old Ahmedov Elmar Naib oglu, the turn of Mehriban Bekirova came.
Mehriban Bekirova, Turkish refugee from Fergana, heroine of Viktoria Ivleva's reportage (http://xocali.net/ru/p11.html), whose history was studied very thoroughly, suddenly, 23 years later, began to "recall" the details of her "captivity."
Azerbaijani media outlet Vesti.az published a "story that remained beyond the objective of Russian journalist Viktoria Ivleva."
It is worth mentioning that the remark that Viktoria Ivleva had not seen it was made intentionally as it is obvious that she would not support fabrications, no matter how much she liked and sympathized with the heroine of her reportage.
We will touch upon some of the main theses of the new edition of Bekirova's narration, in which she asserts that they "beat" her, cut off the breasts of a teenage girl, and they fell straight on the face of her miserable father," "my [Bekirova's] whole body was swollen," "Viktoria frequently visited me and asked me how I was feeling," "they cut the belly (of a pregnant women) and put a kitten into it and then sewed it. <…> Then it became known, and the newspapers also wrote about it."
According to Viktoria Ivleva, Bekirova and the other Meskhetian Turks stayed in captivity for two days only, that is, the events described in the narration include only 48 hours from human biography, and took place 23 years ago.
Bekirova asserts: "Viktoria frequently visited me and asked me how I was feeling," but no one ever complained to her about "tortures," "beatings" and "cutting off body parts."
Judging by the fact that Bekirova "saw everything with her own eyes," "tortures" happened in the very room where they were kept so it should have been entirely blood-stained. Visiting the room, Ivleva did not fix any traces of blood and, especially, father, killed by sorrow, whose daughter's breast was cut off and thrown on his face. It is logical that such a horror could not but be noticed by a professional journalist and photographer. Nevertheless, the journalist did not record either blood or father killed by sorrow or any hint at what was happening. The shots she took show people who were frostbitten, weary and upset, but not tormented and tortured. And as the Azerbaijani side so much trusts the testimony of Viktoria Ivleva that after 1992 it twice conducted an interview with her and invited her to Baku, she could hardly be suspected of intentionally omitting or disregarding the "horrors of Armenian captivity," suddenly discovered 23 years later.
The fact remains that on Ivleva's photos, taken in different times of the "captivity," there is no difference in the appearance of both Bekirova and the others – she does not make an impression of being beaten and tortured.widespread and rather long-standing myth of Azerbaijani propaganda, which was this time put into the mouth of a "witness."
First, none of the Azerbaijani sources that released lists of the dead, though different and dubious, mention that anyone of the dead was pregnant. While narrating, witnesses mention each other's names and we for our part verify them with the names published by Azerbaijan. As a rule, these are names of dead people, but even here, contradictions, distortions or undisguised forgeries are found. But when the matter concerns victims of inhuman tortures, premeditated murder or "sacrifice," they change into "nameless guys," "nameless pregnant women," "teenage girls" and their "miserable fathers."
Second, if the "newspapers wrote about it," we wonder which newspaper reported it.
Anyway, one of our volunteers contacted Viktoria Ivleva and asked her: "Ms Ivleva, do you confirm this information?" to which she gave a capacious and definite answer: "I do not confirm it, except the fact that I met the unhappy Mehriban, I carried her baby and then I gave her some money. I have already written to the author, but I think it is useless. Alas! During more than twenty years, none of your countries took a single, even a tiny, step towards peace…"
…Alas! The small steps based on falsehood are leading in the opposite direction.
It is worth mentioning once more the testimony of Viktoria Ivleva whom the Azerbaijani side has no grounds not to trust: "The soldiers guarding them treated the Turks humanly."
