It is assumed that Azerbaijani troops were involved in the demolition of the cross.

On September 29, 2023, a 50-meter cross, which was the second-largest in Europe, was demolished in Nagorno-Karabakh. This information was reported by former Ukrainian MP Ihor Mosiychuk in his Telegram channel. He posted a video in which military helicopters were flying against the backdrop of the standing cross, and two hours later, it was already lying on the ground.

Mosiychuk wrote that the cross was brought down by Azerbaijani forces.

The cross near Stepanakert was erected in 2017 by Armenians in memory of the defenders of Nagorno-Karabakh. It used to illuminate the night and was visible for many kilometers.

Previously, the Armenian Church had referred to Azerbaijan's operation in Karabakh as a "genocide".
