On the origin of the Armenians

erməni

Speaking about the origin of the Armenians, there is a need to shed light on “Armenian”, “Armenia”, “Hay”, “Hayastan” ethno-toponyms. It is known that the Armenians identify themselves with “Hay” ethnonym and with “Hayastan” toponym, the coun¬try of their residence. Outside Armenia, these people are known as “the Armenians”, “Armenin”, “Vir¬men” etc, and “Armenia”, “Armeniya”, “Virmeniya” and so on as the country.

THE ARMENIAN AFFAIR

When you start investigating the historical roots of Armenia’s aggressive and predatory war against Azerbaijan, certain aspects of Armenian history must be taken into account. This aggressive policy arose from the kernel of Armenian history. Therefore, when the favorable historical pre-conditions occurred for international and internal political change, Armenians made every effort for the implementation of their treacherous intentions. The occurrence of the so-called Armenian problem was not fortuitous. With regard to the Armenia- Azerbaijan conflict it is necessary to consider this problem in a new way. As the “Karabakh problem” must be considered a part of the Armenian problem. And the “Armenian problem” is a part of the Eastern problem. At the end of the 19th century and at the beginning of the 20th century a lot of research was devoted to this problem. The article written by the historian V. Gurko-Kryajinin for the Soviet Encyclopedia that was published in 1926 is one of such works. At the end of the article the author was hopeful by writing “… the most conscientious among the Armenian migrants change their views and say no to the past. They realize their mistakes and return home. After the Soviet coup d’etat the Dashnaktucun completely ceased to exist”. But the historian was deceived.

Duke Vorontsov-Dashkov: “By Patronizing towards the Armenians we have Gained Loyal Allies who have always rendered us Great Service “.

Your Majesty, urged by the clergy consisting of the subjects of Turkey and Russia the Catholicos of all the Armenians wants to leave for St. Petersburg to appeal to Your Majesty  in person and to ask You to defend the Armenians from the attacks of the Kurds in Turkey. I undertook the courage to postpone the visit and suggested him that his request would be delivered to Your Majesty by me.

Southern Russian territories on the “Great Armenia” map

armeniya_xeriteWe have recently come across an intriguing document – a map with the southern part of Russia and the neighboring Caucasus republics. This map was sent to us by our friend – an ethnic German who now lives in the USA. A letter is also attached to the map and we’ll talk about it a bit later. Even if we look at the document superficially, we can easily see how extraordinary Armenia’s territory on the map is.
