15:01, 14 August, 2013

YEREVAN, AUGUST 14, ARMENPRESS: The Russian journalist of one of the
Conde Nast Russia Periodicals Anna Sahakyan was prohibited to enter
Baku for having an Armenian surname. She is Russian, but she took
her Armenian husband’s surname after the marriage. As reported by
Armenpress, Anna Sahakyan published about it in her Facebook page,
expressing her frustration about the case.

“Do not judge people by their nation. I have certainly heard that such
things happen but I could not believe that nonsense. I hope that my
modest words will reach the ears of Ilham Aliyev. Mr. Aliyev, be a
man at last and change your attitude towards the Armenians. I wanted
so much to see Baku and walk along the streets of the ancient city,
but I managed to see only a part of the sea. If there are Azerbaijanis
among my friends, I hope that they are ashamed of this”, – wrote
the journalist.

Anna Sahakyan also noted that she proudly bears her surname, as she
changed it for love. She stated that even after all this she would
not hate Azerbaijan, understanding quite well that all are equal
before the God.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
