Baku soldier's Armenian mother: "War brings grief to everyone"
Maria Aliyeva, an Azerbaijani citizen of Armenian ethnicity, became popular on Azerbaijani social media after Russian media published articles about her. Many did not know that Maria’s son had died in 1994 during the First Karabakh War.
Maria’s son Samir studied at a military school and was sent to fight in the First Karabakh War.
He was killed in action in January 1994 at age 19.
For Maria Aliyeva, Azerbaijan is her home. She believes that regardless of religion and nationality, people can live in peace and harmony.
