“There is nothing left of the city I visited with my father in the mid-80s,” said well-known Georgian journalist Giorgi Saralidze who is on a visit to Georgia, APA reports. 

Emphasizing his concern about the scene he saw in Aghdam, G. Saralidze noted that it was difficult for him to understand why the destruction was carried out on this scale:“What I see makes me very sad. I saw the ruins here in the pictures. To tell the truth, I didn't expect that. I was here with my father when I was young, in the mid-80s. It was flourishing then, but now what I see here like a nightmare. A city that was very well known in Soviet times simply does not exist now. Everything was destroyed in an area of tens of kilometers. To be honest, it makes a terrible impression on me. Most importantly, I do not understand why this was done. For me, this is a riddle”.
