During the First Karabakh war, the armament of and financially supporting the extremist groups in Armenia by their communities living in various countries proved the widespread hatred against the Azerbaijanis and that such actions are specifically aimed at ethnic cleansing of people of not Armenian origin in Nagorno-Karabakh and adjacent seven districts.
According to Report, these views were expressed in the Commissioner for Human Rights (Ombudsman) report of the Republic of Azerbaijan on hate crimes and hate speech against Azerbaijanis.
The very fact that during the Armenian military offensive, the Armenian extremists promised monetary rewards in exchange for the killing of the leaders of joint Azerbaijani volunteer groups proved encouragement for these violent operations. In addition, there are facts of psychological pressure on the inhabitants in the neighborhood and adjacent to the Armenian-occupied villages and residential areas using loudspeakers, including insulting and humiliation of Azerbaijanis in various forms. So, such psychological pressures refer to violence, fear in humans, and, consequently, incitement.
