According to political analysts, the removal of Nzhdeh's plaque in Russia took place after President Ilham Aliyev raised the issue

Recently, a memorial plaque, dedicated to the Armenian fascist Garegin Nzhdeh, was erected in Krasnodar, Russia. This memorial plaque honoring the fascist villain was out of the public eye. However, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev raised the issue, on Armenians creating a heroic image of the fascist Nzhdeh, at a meeting of the Council of CIS Heads of State in Ashgabat. The head of state condemned the glorification of the Nazis. The Azerbaijani president stressed that there is no place for the glorification of fascists in the CIS region.
 
President Ilham Aliyev, quoting the report of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued in 2019 "On the situation with the glorification of Nazism, the spread of neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to the escalation of modern forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia, and related intolerance” said former Armenian authorities had erected a monument to fascist executioner and traitor Garegin Nzhdeh, in the center of Yerevan. The memorial plaque dedicated to the Armenian fascist caused a rightful public backlash in Azerbaijan and Russia.
 
The Deputy of the city Duma of Armavir of Krasnodar Krai, Russia Alexei Vinogradov sprayed black paint over the memorial plaque dedicated to Nazi collaborator Nzhdeh in the city of Armavir. The city later removed the memorial plaque. It is interesting that instead of being ashamed of such a criminal, the Armenians blame Azerbaijan for the matter. Why don't the Armenians, who promote the ideas of a fascist executioner, find themselves guilty?
 
Political scientist Fikret Sadikhov said if Armenians find Azerbaijan guilty of demolishing the monument of Nzhdeh, then our country has great influence in the CIS region and world. "The spread of such influence in this region is always a positive thing for Azerbaijan. Armenians do not understand that it is foolish and ignorant to place such memorial plaques in Russia on the eve of the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II. Because millions of people have been killed in this war and not only Russia, the CIS, but humanity will celebrate this historic day. The world hates fascism to this today. The Armenians share the same ideas and principles with fascists if they believe it is normal to place such statues and plaques dedicated to criminals in other countries,” he said.
 
Chairman of the Baku Club of Political Scientists Zaur Mammadov said that while the world is fighting fascism, Armenia is taking a different position. "Unfortunately, Armenia, our neighbor in the South Caucasus, is glorifying fascism at the state level. They even went a little further in this direction and erected a statue of Garegin Nzhdeh in Yerevan. For this reason, I think that President Ilham Aliyev rightfully raised this issue in Ashgabat at the meeting of the Council of Heads of State of the Commonwealth of Independent States because each of the post-Soviet countries fought against fascism in World War II. However, the Armenians, who fought in this struggle within the Soviet Union army, actually also resorted to such foul means. The glorification of fascism at the state level in Armenia is one of the problems that damage the country’s image. The decision by the Russian authorities to demolish the memorial plaque of Garegin Nzhdeh came after President Ilham Aliyev raised the issue,” he said.
 
Mammadov noted that the main essence of the Armenian state is the fascist and occupation policy, regardless of who is in power. "One of the main reasons for this is that the Armenian community has been brought up under this ideology in the past, and they have tried to convince them that there has been "great Armenia" in history. Of course, Armenian historians and politicians are well aware that there has never been an Armenian state in the South Caucasus. Their main idea is to establish a state of existence between the Black and Caspian Seas, which has never existed, and if we look at today's Armenian policy, their claims to eastern Turkey are well known. The similarity of the symbols of the emblem of the Republican Party, which have been in power in Armenia until recently, to Hitler's symbols is clear evidence of this. In any case, the information war continues, and lately, Armenia has begun to take serious hits to its information policy. If we witnessed a completely different picture in the 80s and 90s, today, the world community does not look at Armenia in pity and understands their true essence,” he added.
