Although Armenians, who realized their wills under the patronage of Russia, were not the local inhabitants of the Caucasus, they did all tricks and intrigues in order to settle in this ancient and rich territory.
The Christian monuments of Azerbaijan have always been subject to fraud by the Armenian clergy and the science they use.
As a branch of the Phrygians, the ancestors of the present Armenians migrated from the Balkans to the upper basin of the Euphrates River first in VII-VI centuries BC, later they moved northwards and ultimately found a new homeland around the Lake Van.
Phd in history Guntekin Najafli:
In 1827, Russia began in earnest her conquest of the great Muslim Empires—The Ottoman Empire and Iran. In two short wars, Russia defeated first the Persians, then the Ottomans. Russia’s prize was the lands of the Southern Caucasus. Russia’s task was to ensure the tranquility of her new possessions by shaping their populations. In the Tsar’s conquests to the north, Russians and other Slavs had been moved into the new territories, often displacing Turkish-speaking inhabitants. Because of the distance from ethnic Russian lands and, perhaps, a lack of Slavs who could or would move to the Southern Caucasus, the Russians encouraged local Christians, the Armenians, to come into the new Russian territories.
