1993 Azeri coup d'état
The 1993 Azeri coup d'état took place on 1 September 1993 by militia led by military commander Surat Huseynov. While the Azerbaijan lost the war which opposed it to the Armenia, president Abulfaz Elchibey sent the Commander Surat Huseynov due to its military failures. It thereby created a hostile militia to the Government, precipitating the defeat of the Azerbaijan. Therefore, on September 1, his militia took the capital, Baku, forcing president Abulfaz Elchibey to flee.
