Children who were blown up: the terrifying commonality of threats to both Azerbaijan and Ukraine

Children who were blown up: the terrifying commonality of threats to both Azerbaijan and Ukraine


Last March, together with his mother and 14-year-old brother Bohdan, he tried to escape by car from the rabid occupiers who had seized most of Chernihiv Region.

A Russian landmine destroyed the car on the Chernihiv-Kyiv highway: the children were burned to death and their mother was thrown out of the car by the blast wave, killing her as well.

Almost a year earlier, in June 2021, another 11-year-old boy, Gismet Bayramov, who lived in a village in the Kelbajar region of Azerbaijan, had gone out in search of his father’s missing horses

He grew up in a farming family, so this chore was not new to him. But this time the boy did not return home. They searched for him for almost three months. By the end of September, sappers found fragments of Gismet’s body in a mountainous area not far from the village.

The tragic fates of 11-year-old Daniil and his peer Gismet serve as heartbreaking confirmation of the commonality between Ukraine and Azerbaijan in confronting external aggression, threats of pro-Russian separatism and mine terrorism.
