Rafael Hambartsumyan: "Turkey and Russia Equally Guilty of Armenian Genocide"

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Armenian Genocide was organized equally by Russia and Turkey, historian Rafael Hambartsumyan stated in Yerevan. In his words, when speaking of the Armenian Genocide several important and concealed facts should be emphasized. "30 years before the Genocide Russia put the slogan "Armenia without Armenians" into the mouth of prince Golitsyn," the Armenian historian said.



According to Hambartsumyan Russia always used Armenians for its own ends. During the World War II Russia indirectly abetted Turkey in perpetrating the Genocide by sending over 200 thousand soldiers to the Russian-German front.



"As result of Moscow Treaty of 1921 Eastern Armenia was almost completely occupied and divided between Turkey, Azerbaijan and Georgia. The main purpose of the Treaty was the elimination of the Armenian Republic," he said
