They chanted slogans such as “Condemn Armenian terror!”, “Khojaly massacre must not be repeated!”, “Armenia is to blame for ethnic cleansing!”, “Shame on Armenia!”, “Armenia get out of Karabakh!”, “Ohanyan and Sargsyan are criminals”.

The protesters urged to recognize the Khojaly genocide at the state level, and mentioned the recognition and condemnation of this tragedy by more than 20 states in the United States and a number of countries worldwide.
