/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Complete demolition of the cemetery in the Narimanov district in Baku made no sense, a human rights activist said.

-The cemetery was demolished to use the territory as a ground for new buildings,- said Taisia Gordeyeva, the deputy chair of the committee of soldiers' mothers.

-They tried to justify the barbarism by construction of roads but, as a matter of fact, roads will take a minor part of the graveyard. Everything prompts that the territory is meant for construction of new buildings. But it will be a construction on human bones, for the remnants were not reburied properly,she said, adding that a park should be laid out at the site, reports.

In September 2007, Baku authorities decided to build a motorway through the Narimanov cemetery, where Armenians, Russians and Ukrainians were buried.
