This date went down in the history of Azerbaijan as a day of national salvation. On this day, at the request of the people, Heydar Aliyev returned to power for the second time and was elected chairman of the Supreme Council. Thus, the end of tension and confrontation in society was laid, the country was saved from the threat of a civil war and a split.
