Ilham Aliyev raised Azerbaijani flag in Sugovushan settlement, Tartar district

On October 3, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev raised the flag of Azerbaijan in Sugovushan settlement of Tartar district.

The head of state made a speech at the event.

Speech of President Ilham Aliyev

– One year ago, on 3 October, Sugovushan settlement was liberated from occupation. It was a very significant event. It was a great success, a great victory to liberate the strategic settlement from occupation in the first days of the war. During the liberation of this settlement, we had martyrs and wounded servicemen. May Allah rest the souls of all our martyrs in peace and grant healing to the wounded.

We once again paid tribute to the memory of our heroic martyrs who died for the Motherland on the Remembrance Day on 27 September.

The liberation of Sugovushan was of great strategic importance because the location of this settlement played an important role in the subsequent course of the war, and the fact that the settlement was in our hands gave us an advantage in our future operations. Naturally, the enemy probably knew, of course, that we would move in this direction. Talish village and Sugovushan settlement were liberated on the same day, on 3 October of last year. Very strong fortifications had been built here. There were several lines of defense. The enemy had all strategic heights, the heights leading to the settlement. The Azerbaijani Army showed great heroism and self-sacrifice in liberating Talish and Sugovushan as a result of fierce battles. Another important feature of the liberation of Sugovushan and Talish was that after the liberation of the first villages – the first six villages were liberated on the first day of the war, on 27 September – no settlements were liberated until 3 October. There were natural reasons for that. There were preparations, maneuvering and fierce battles. However, the liberation of more settlements after the victories on the first day of the war certainly gave our army and people additional strength and morale, and the liberation of eight villages on the seventh day of the war, including the liberation of these villages in the former Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Region, gave us a tremendous advantage.

The strategic importance of these villages is that a large enemy contingent was deployed here. The liberation of these villages also provided us with control over the strategic roads in the region, and also created major difficulties and restrictions for the movement and maneuvering of the enemy’s manpower. A large enemy contingent was stationed in the area of Talish village and Sugovushan settlement, and this contingent could not take part in other operations until the last day of the war. First of all, because the strategic roads were already under our control, and secondly, if the enemy had withdrawn its forces from here, the Azerbaijani Army could have moved forward in this direction, of course. Therefore, our tactical steps and maneuverability were deliberate steps, and a large enemy military unit was effectively paralyzed in this direction.

The importance of Sugovushan settlement is also that it is home to the Sugovushan reservoir. The reservoir is of great strategic importance. This reservoir, along with the Sarsang reservoir, was built on the initiative of great leader Heydar Aliyev in 1976. The main purpose of these reservoirs was to supply water to the regions located outside the administrative boundaries of the former Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Region – Tartar, Barda, Aghdam, Goranboy and other districts. During the occupation, the contemptible enemy committed environmental terror against us. It was engaged in water terrorism. In fact, a special report on this issue was presented at one of the sessions of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and a resolution was adopted. The Armenian state was blamed for that, and this was our great success. It is no coincidence that after that, Armenian lobby organizations began to pursue a policy of moral terror against the authors of this report. During the occupation, Armenians cut off water in the summer and released it in winter. In the summer, our villagers and farmers were left without water, while in winter they released the water, causing natural disasters and floods. In other words, it shows again what an ugly enemy we were faced with. They used every opportunity to cause damage to us. As a result of the liberation of the Sugovushan settlement and the re-establishment of control over the reservoir, the Armenian state lost these opportunities. We are in charge here now. This year, water was supplied to Tartar and other districts using the Sugovushan reservoir for the first time in 30 years. As a result of the liberation of this settlement, water has been supplied to 30,000 hectares of land that were not irrigated or were irrigated insufficiently before. The canals are being repaired now. Specific steps are being taken to effectively use the existing water resources in our liberated lands – East Zangazur and Karabakh economic zones – and a very serious program is being implemented. All maps of water sources have already been developed and the construction of new reservoirs is on the agenda.

At the same time, two hydroelectric power stations were built by great leader Heydar Aliyev near the reservoir during the Soviet era. During the war, the enemy destroyed these stations too. More than 30 hydroelectric power stations in Kalbajar and Lachin districts were destroyed by the Armenians during and after the war, when they were given time to leave, and these stations are being restored now. In particular, first of all, work has begun on the restoration of the Sugovushan-1 and Sugovushan-2 hydropower plants, which are already in operational condition. They have been rebuilt, built from scratch. This once again shows our strength and policy. We are taking very serious steps to implement infrastructure projects, and although it has been less than a year since the war ended, see how much work is being done. Sugovushan settlement is of special importance in terms of providing this region with electricity and water. Another important aspect of the liberation of this settlement, I want to say again, is the further strengthening of our moral and psychological superiority.

Now, if we look at the chronology of the war, we can see that six villages, the Murovdagh range and Aghdara mountains were liberated on 27 September, and eight more villages, including Sugovushan settlement and Talish village, were liberated on 3 October. On 4 October, many more villages were liberated, including the town of Jabrayil.

In other words, this gave our army extra strength and morale. We maintained this moral advantage until the last day, until the last minute of the war. The enemy had already started to realize that all their propaganda, all their lies were nothing but fabrications. The enemy’s propaganda had been spreading false information about their tactical retreats day and night, and this nonsense was circulated. This is probably a novelty in military practice. They were describing the towns and villages we had already liberated as those where battles were still ongoing. In real life, however, in real battles, everyone saw everything. In particular, the personnel serving in the Armenian army saw that we were winning, that we were moving forward and that no force could stop us. Once Talish and Sugovushan, which were considered almost impossible to seize from a military point of view, were liberated by the Azerbaijani Army, they were convinced that our Victory chronicle would be continued.

Of course, the Armenian army and personnel were in a deep moral and psychological shock. They were terrified, and, of course, in the following period, from 3 October until the last minutes of the war, the Armenian army remained in fear. It is no coincidence that there were more than 10,000 deserters in the Armenian army. They realized that they could not stand in front of us. They saw that their government was lying to them and sending them to death, that it was carrying out meaningless operations, as a result of which the personnel of the Armenian armed forces were actually sacrificed. An army of 10,000 deserters could not resist us, of course.

After that, the glorious Victory March of the Azerbaijani Army and our Armed Forces continued. It is true that in some places the Armenian side did put up some resistance. In some places, it created difficulties for us. But this is a war. After all, they had built great fortifications over 30 years – look at these mountains, they were all natural fortifications – and, of course, they

had the opportunity to defend themselves. But they already knew that they could not stand in front of us. The presence of 10,000 deserters speaks volumes.

There was former Armenian president Serzhik Sarkisyan among those deserters. I was recently told that he had uttered some ugly words about Azerbaijan and about the great leader – in full accordance with his level. He is the first deserter himself. Because he tampered in Khankandi during the war, as if he would do something there. But when he saw that the Azerbaijani Army was already coming and could grab him by the ear and bring him to Baku, he fled from there like a coward. I did not call him Serzhik Sarkisyan because I wanted to humiliate him, but because this is his real name and surname. We have this information in our archives. His birth certificate and his Komsomol ticket state that his name is Serzhik Sarkisyan. Then he changed it to Serzh Sarkisyan, as if Serzh is an acceptable name.

This man has been known throughout his life as a thief, criminal, fraudster, traitor, and deserter all his life. There is no-one in Armenia who wouldn’t not know of Serzhik’s theft. The “war heroes” associated with him are either in prison or in hell today. The “general” who sold “soldier’s stew” and is already burning in hell, Serzhik’s right-hand man, shows the true face of the Armenian army and that of Serzhik. What words does a general who sells “soldier’s stew” during war deserve? Another right-hand man of Serzhik’s, war criminal who served as defense minister during the war, was recently arrested in Armenia for theft. He was buying faulty weapons and pocketing the money. We have ample information about this – both before and during the war. The ground was burning under their feet, the Azerbaijani Army was advancing every day, but the Armenian defense minister was signing contracts to buy defective weapons and pocketing the money for the price difference. Such are Serzhik’s pupils, thieves just like him.

I have said that Serzhik is a war criminal. I am not the only one who says it. This is also stated by all impartial and independent political scientists and journalists who are familiar with the region. In an interview to a British journalist, he said that he had personally committed the Khojaly genocide. He also explained that the Azerbaijanis should know that the Armenian army could take up arms against the civilian population too. This bloody criminal is Serzhik Sarkisyan. I call him a traitor and this is not an insult. He has been a traitor at every single step. Firstly, towards the people of Azerbaijan whose bread he had been eating. Secondly, towards Gevorkov, the former first secretary of the Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Region, as he was his aide, he carried his suitcase for him. This is part of his biography. He may have had this deleted, but it is still available in our archives. His appointment took place in Baku. We have everything in our archives. Serzhik Sargkisyan was formally Boris Gevorkov’s assistant, but he was actually his servant, a kebab maker and a party organizer. What happened then? Then, as soon as the separatist movement began, Serzhik betrayed Gevorkov. This was the second act of betrayal. The third act of betrayal was against his leader Kocharyan. Now there is no-one in Armenia who wouldn’t know this. It was Kocharyan who took Serzhik by the ear and brought him to office. He appointed him to all positions. He also forcibly had him appointed as president. But the Armenian people hated Serzhik. What happened after that? Less than a year later, he betrayed Kocharyan too and did not even answer his phone calls. Notice how lowly this specimen is.

An analysis of the war shows again that it was the likes of Serzhik Sarkisyan who lost the war. He now wants to blame the defeat on Pashinyan, as if it is Pashinyan who is to blame. Pashinyan came to power in 2018. Could he have created an army in just two years? Or could he have destroyed a “strong” and “formidable” army? It is Serzhik who created this army. Serzhik was the minister of defense in Armenia. Serzhik was the prime minister of Armenia. He was the head of the Presidential Administration and head of the Ministry of Security. He was president for 10 years. Who created this army if not Serzhik? By crushing that army, we have destroyed Serzhik and those like him. Let him not blame this defeat on Pashinyan. What Pashinyan did is another matter, but we have defeated Serzhik, brought him to his knees, broke his back. He knelt before us, the army he had built was on its knees before us. I am here today as the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, in the territory of the former Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Region. If Serzhik is a man, let him come here instead of talking of manhood. He talks about manhood in the Caucasus. First of all, his nation has nothing to do with the Caucasus. They are a settlers here and everyone knows where they came from. Secondly, if you are talking about manhood, come here as a man. Look, I am standing here. I am standing in Sugovushan, which you call “Madagiz”. If you are a man, come over here. Otherwise, you can’t make a hero out of yourself by sitting and crowing there in Yerevan. I once told him to throw away the scrap he was still carrying on his chest. Those medals are not worth a penny. He was given the best punishment by the Armenian people themselves, who kicked him out of office in 2018. In the 2018 elections, he committed yet another fraud by allegedly receiving 50 percent of the vote. And the accomplice of that crime is the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights. Because together with Serzhik – I do not know what sort of a deal they struck but I can guess – they recognized his victory. This man is widely ridiculed, mocked and hated in Armenia. He allegedly more than 50 percent of the vote, appointed himself prime minister and the OSCE turned a blind eye to that. So there are two forgers – one is the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights, which always despises Azerbaijan, and the other is Serzhik. But after that, the Armenian people stood up. The Armenian people stood up, kicked him and threw him out of office. What did he do after that? He came humbly and said that he was not right, that Nikol was right. Can a person who calls himself a man say such a thing? Can a person who calls himself a man humiliate himself so much? So he was done away with like that. For the next two years, he kept his mouth shut. He was insulted so much. So many of his criminal relatives were arrested. He has a close relative who went into hiding abroad, received a Guatemalan passport in Colombia and also changed his name. Just like Serzhik made himself Serzh early on. His relative also gave himself the name of Gonzalez. They grabbed him by the ear and arrested him. He stayed tight-lipped in fear. What can he say after all? But he seems to rise again after the war. If it hadn’t been for the war, if it hadn’t been for this bitter defeat, Serzhik would be in prison now. A thief like him may not have been born in our region yet.

His opening his ugly mouth and talking about my father in Yerevan today will cost him very dearly. We almost grabbed him by the ear. He found out from somewhere that he were approaching, ran away from Khankandi and settled in Yerevan. In the recent elections, he failed to get even five percent of the vote. See how much the Armenian people hate this creature that they voted for the government that was guilty of losing the war, not for him. That is why I am saying to you again – look, I am here, I am in Sugovushan, I am in Shusha, I am in Hadrut, I am in Khojavand, I am everywhere. But where are you? In hell, together with the status that has gone to hell. This is it. It is over.

By saying these words, I do not respond to an element that only opens his ugly mouth to utter some nonsense, someone giving off the smell of naphthalene. I appeal to people like him all over Armenia, to all those who cherish revanchist sentiments – come to your senses. The iron fist is still there, it has not gone anywhere, it is still in place. Don’t upset us and behave. If you behave, then you can live safely. But if there are further provocation, statements or actions against us, we will crush your head without looking at anyone. No-one can protect you.

While visiting Sugovushan and Talish villages today, I once again see the heroism of our people and our Armed Forces. Everyone who comes here can and will see that. Because the liberation of these places from occupation in the face of death shows the greatness of our people.

Today, raising the national flag in both villages, I once again pay tribute to the memory of our martyrs. I also thank the people of Azerbaijan for uniting like a fist during the war, supporting the army, supporting me, and we crushed the head of the enemy and won because of that. From now on, we will forever live as a victorious nation and a victorious country.

Karabakh is ours! Karabakh is Azerbaijan!

Ilham Aliyev raised Azerbaijani flag in Talish village of Tartar district

On October 3, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev raised the flag of Azerbaijan in Talish village of Tartar district.

President Ilham Aliyev said:

– The Azerbaijani Army liberated the village of Talish from the occupiers exactly one year ago. A year on, I am here, on Azerbaijani soil, in the liberated village of Talish, and raising the Azerbaijani flag in the village of Talish.

There were fierce battles here a year ago. We had martyrs. May Allah rest the souls of all our martyrs in peace. The liberation of the village of Talish holds a special place among our successful operations. Because there were very strong fortifications here. The enemy had built several lines of defense and, of course, they were waiting for us here. In many operations, we counterattacked the enemy from places it did not expect. In this direction, the battlefield is quite narrow. It is fairly limited. So, of course, the enemy was waiting for us here, and we have come, without fearing anything. We have come by shedding blood and giving martyrs. We liberated the villages of Talish and Sugovushan exactly a year ago. This gave us a great strategic advantage. This once again showed that the Armenian army is helpless and unable to stand in front of the Azerbaijani Army. And then our victory was not too far away. Today, the sovereignty of Azerbaijan in this region is fully ensured. Great infrastructure work has been done over a year. The main thing is that the people of Azerbaijan will live here in peace and tranquility. Of course, we will restore the village of Talish and life will return here.

President Ilham Aliyev also visited the Albanian-Udi church destroyed by the Armenians in Talish village.

The head of state said: This is an ancient Albanian church. Notice what the Armenians have done to it. Then they will start claiming that it is an Armenian church. If it were Armenian, would they have brought it to this state? It will be preserved as a historical site. All religious sites in Azerbaijan are protected by the state. Sites of all religions will continue to be protected. We will also restore this ancient Albanian church. Armenians had only been ravaging this region for 30 years.

Head of the district executive authority Mustagim Mammadov: The Armenians have covered up the traces of this being an Albanian church. In other words, they committed fraud.

President Ilham Aliyev: This is nothing but fraud. Let the whole world see what the Armenians have done to the Albanian church.

Visiting the Russian Orthodox church in the village, President Ilham Aliyev said: This is a Russian Orthodox church located in the village of Talish. It has also been destroyed by Armenians. Notice what condition it is in. They have knocked down the stones and the walls. This is the current situation. We will restore and repair this church as well. Unlike Armenians, we respect all religious sites.

These buildings used to be their military unit.

Webtel.Mobi is Reintroducing a 100% Gold-Backed Currency Worldwide – Stability of 100% Gold-Secured Currency Returns After Half a Century

WM’s Impending reintroduction of a 100% gold-backed “Secured TUV” Digital Currency for all World Reserve Currencies is the first reintroduction of a 100% gold-secured currency worldwide since the post-Bretton Woods Default in 1971

Secured TUV – USD 1 000 000 or 24Kg AU 24K

Secured TUV – USD 1 000 000 or 24Kg AU 24K

ST PETER PORT, Guernsey and NEW YORK, Oct. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Global Telephony Provider Webtel.mobi (“WM”) has already introduced the world’s first fully functional and global-use Digital Currency that functions from a regulated environment.

That is WM’s “Standard TUV”, a globally accessible, globally transferable, globally refundable, multicurrency Digital Currency; that is 1:1 secured with funds in a regulated bank account. It has the properties of being a globally acceptable medium of exchange, unit of account, store of value and standard of deferred payment in all World Reserve Currencies and multiple other currencies.

As “advanced” as WM’s Standard TUV is compared to attempts by other entities to attain this ideal, it is not advanced insofar as the capacities of WM’s International Clearing System – powered by its Artificial Intelligence Complex Adaptive System – are concerned. WM has within its System far more advanced facilities that are already fully functional.

One of these is WM’s “Secured TUV” Digital Currency.

The Secured TUV is a TUV with all the characteristics of WM’s Standard TUV; but also 100% secured by physical gold to the full value of the TUV.

WM’s Standard TUV is already a 100% hedge against inflation and currency depreciation due to it being convertible to any other World Reserve Currency – and many other currencies – instantly on-demand, and being 100% secured by 1:1 funds in its currency in a regulated bank account.

WM’s Secured TUV takes this process one-step further – specifically to cater for WM Members who prefer to have the Fiat Currencies that secure their TUVs backed by physical gold.

The Gold-Backed Secured TUV is not a planned or hoped-for product. It is already – as are all products and Facilities on the WM Platform – a fully functional and operational-reality.

The only reason for WM not already releasing its Secured TUV at this time, is due to it being in the process of finalizing the entity from which the physical gold to guarantee and back the Secured TUVs will be sourced.

This is because there are various prerequisites from WM regarding selection of the final supplier – including location, adherence to regulatory best practices, secure storage and monitoring, ongoing quality-control, capacity to rapidly increase stock, capacity for secure and insured delivery to Members in the event of refunds and some other requirements.

The supplier is anticipated to have been appointed by the end of 2021, and WM has scheduled the general release of the Secured TUV for Q2 2022.

WM’s Secured TUVs will function in exactly the same way as WM’s Standard TUVs, being:

  1. Standard TUVs are free and instant to acquire. Stored Credit (“funds”) used to acquire the TUV remain in a regulated bank account for the life of the TUV – providing the 1:1 funds backing of the Digital Currency.
  2. Standard TUVs can be acquired in any currency used on the WM Platform – including all the World Reserve Currencies. They can similarly be converted into any other of the World Reserve Currencies – or other currencies available on the WM Platform – instantly and on-demand.
  3. Standard TUVs can be used for every transaction type that exists – having the same utility as both cash and digital payments.
  4. Standard TUVs are globally transferable in 1/100th of a second, with the highest levels of security, reliability, reporting – and zero costs or fees – and can be used for any offline or online payments, transfers, conversions or other transactions – at zero cost, and with zero specialized equipment required.
  5. Standard TUVs can be refunded to the certified and reverified regulated bank account of any WM member on demand – in any currency that the TUV has been converted to.

The only differences between Standard TUVs and the Gold-Backed Secured TUVs are:

  1. Although the acquisition of a Secured TUV is elective, there is absolutely no difference between the acquisition of a Standard TUV or a Secured TUV. The cost of the acquisition of both TUVs from WM is the same – zero. Both are absolutely free to acquire. The funds used for acquiring both types of TUV go into a regulated bank account for the life of the TUV, and both TUVs are therefore fully backed by the funds for which they are valued – which can be refunded at any time on demand. The only difference is that the Standard TUV is backed 100% and 1:1 by funds in its value (which can be converted to other Currencies on demand), and the Secured TUV is backed by 100% and 1:1 by funds to its value, and also backed 100% by physical gold to its total value.
  2. Besides Secured TUVs being backed 1:1 in the currency in which they have been acquired or converted to – they are also backed by physical gold to the full value of the currency in which the TUV was acquired at the time of acquisition. That is – if a Secured TUV is acquired for USD 100 – it is backed by USD 100 in a regulated bank account and also by USD 100’s worth of physical gold. The same applies whether it is for USD 100 or USD 100 million.
  3. The value of the Secured TUV fluctuates directly with the fluctuation of the value of gold in that currency. If the value of gold goes up in that currency, the value of the Secured TUV increases. The value of the Secured TUV is directly linked to the value of gold in its currency.
  4. The currency of the Secured TUV can be converted on-demand by its owner to a different World Reserve Currency or other currency in use on the WM Platform. If this is done, the value of the Secured TUV will be reflected according to that currency’s value in gold (as in point 3 above).
  5. The Secured TUV can be refunded on demand either with funds – which are transferred directly to the owner’s certified and reverified bank account – or with physical gold. If the refund is in physical gold, the Secured TUV owner can either:
    1. Fetch the physical gold himself / herself at the secure storage location (security personnel arranged by the Secured TUV owner may do the transportation of the gold thereafter, but the certified and registered owner must present himself / herself directly to have the physical gold released).
    2. Have the physical gold securely delivered to him / her personally at his / her certified and reverified physical address (arranged via his / her WM account – but at his / her own cost for secured delivery).

WM provides these services from – and functions within – a regulatorily compliant and supervised situation. Moreover, WM has already been providing services for over a decade to limited user groups, and in that time has undergone over 30 robust due diligences worldwide. This includes due diligence by multiple firms of attorneys, specialist global research organizations, Investment banks and banks and top-tier Regulatory Agencies. Members therefore have the security of working through a reliable, due-diligenced, and confirmed blue-chip global company.

It has often been stated over the course of the last half a Century that a return to the Gold Standard was not possible – and indeed, via the legacy systems in operation worldwide, it was not.

However, due to the capacities of WM’s Global Clearing System – powered by its Artificial Intelligence Complex Adaptive System – many aspects of global economics and finance that were previously unattainable ideals are, for WM, not just very easily, practically and rapidly attainable – they already exist.

The 100% Gold-Backed Secured TUV Digital Currency is just one of the many facilities, products, services and processes that are unattainable by legacy systems, but which already exist as fully-operational realities within WM’s Global Clearing System.

A return to the Gold Standard represents – over and above the already-existing capacity to instantly convert TUVs’ currencies between all World Reserve Currencies – not just a safe haven against inflation and depreciation of specific Fiat currencies, but rather a safe haven against potential instability and depreciation of all Fiat currencies worldwide.
