The weapons of other three garrisons were given by the Russian military commanders to the enemies of Elchibey - to Surat Huseynov in Ganja, Alikram Humbatov in Lankaran and Heydar Aliyev in Nakhchivan.
On June 4, 1993 the military division under the command of Surat Huseynov started moving his soldiers on a march to Baku with an open intention to depose the president Abulfaz Elchibey.
Surat Huseynov was joined by another military commander in Lankaran - Alikram Humbatov.
All of his allies, including Surat Huseynov and Alikram Humbatov were manipulated by him (initially Surat Huseynov became the prime minister of Azerbaijan), but eventually were either arrested and thrown to jail, or killed, or fled the country.
As the participants of the events of 1993 start speaking (Rahim Gaziyev, the former minister of defense who joined the scheme, Surat Huseynov himself, Shadman Huseynov, Nemat Panahli and many others), it becomes apparent that it was a chaos created by Heydar Aliyev himself and the "stability" came at the cost of surrendering the power to the dictator, the loss of territories and eradication of democracy in Azerbaijan.
