In all spheres of public life chaos and confusion were observed. The situation was complicated by the army, the number of desertion cases increased. The Armenian aggression intensified every day. The young republic was in a struggle for the leadership of the country between individuals and groups. People’s Front came to power on May 14, 1992, and from the first day it showed a complete inability to rule the country, Trend reports.

In the summer of 1993 there was a real threat of civil war in Azerbaijan, and on a hard  day for the country the People's Front invited to Baku from Nakhchivan the outstanding son of Azerbaijan, Heydar Aliyev. Accepting the persistent invitation of the people and the country's leadership, Heydar Aliyev arrived in Baku on June 9.
