Suffering a bitter defeat on the battlefields of the 44-day-long Patriotic War ever since it started on 27 September, Armenians resorted to provocations.

They carried missile and rocket strikes on cities and villages of Azerbaijan, killing peaceful population far away from the frontline.

According to the General Prosecutor's Office, 93 non-combatants were killed and 454 wounded as a result of these Armenian missile and rocket strikes as of 16 November 2020.

There were also kids among these casualties.

During the war, Armenian criminals launched several artillery and missile strikes on Azerbaijan's second largest city of Ganja, which sits far away from the frontline. The heaviest strike was launched on 17 October 2020. As rockets ripped through Javadkhan settlement in the center of Ganja at about 01:00 AM, 15 civilians were killed and 55 wounded. Among the casualties were 6 men, 4 women, and 6 little kids.

That attack claimed the life of Artur Mayakov, 13, a citizen of the Russian Federation. He was recovered from under the rubble but died a week after in the hospital.

Artur Mayakov was a 7th grade student at K.D. Ushinsky high school No.29 in Ganja.

The farewell ceremony for Artur, one of the victims of Armenian terror, was held at the Alexander Nevsky Church in Ganja.

Attending were the city authorities, Russian community representatives, Artur's teachers and other dwellers of the city.

On 24 October 2020, people paid homage to Artur's memory in front of the Embassy of Russia in Baku. Those who came to the embassy lit memorial candles and prayed for the deceased.
