07 June Azerbaijan and Civilization Or: The Turks and Turkishness are Natural Phenomena

Caucasian Tartars have a special “civilizational” mission that they carry out every day. Their only means for self-establishment is the erasure of cultural traces of native peoples of the territory of Azerbaijan, that is, destruction of the historical and cultural identity indicators of those peoples, and engagement in building of a history for their own ethnicity. What the Ottoman Turks once did not manage to accomplish in the eastern part of Armenia was later continued and is continued by  the Azeri Turks…
The foolishness of Pan-Turkism has turned its followers into ideological maniacs…

31 May Heroic Battles of May 1918 (Part II)

Ninety-nine years ago these days, the Armenian people fought a battle of life and death against Turkish regular troops on the outskirts of Yerevan. The last fragments of Armenians that had found shelter on the mother soil had teamed up in Ararat Valley. 
The Young Turks were not satisfied by emptying Western Armenia of Armenians. They had monstrous plans to carry out in the eastern part of Armenia also, and, according to them, the year 1918 was the right time for it. Breaking the Yerznka peace treaty held on December 5, 1917, the Turkish army started military operations on January 28, 1918. The geopolitical situation was in favor of Turkey; it had an ally like Germany… The Russian Caucasian front had been eliminated...

17 May Again on Grigor Vantsyan

Almost a year ago, our program presented the life and literary legacy of one of our cultural figures of the 19th-20th centuries, educator, linguist, and Armenologist Grigor Vantsyan. The two-volume collection of his works was published then. Recently, another volume of his works has been published entitled "Studies and Publications" where his reviews, letters, telegrams, biographical brief pieces of information, obituaries, studies, and some other materials are published. Particularly noteworthy are his letters to Hovhannes Tumanyan, which are published for the first time.

10 May In the Halls of Victories and Armenian Glory

The everyday life of the Mother Armenia Military Museum of RA Ministry of Defense is very active. But one day in the year, May 9, is starry. May 9 is the day of victory in the Great Patriotic War, a victory which was also created by us for a heavy price, thus securing our right of existence during World War II. 
After 50 years, the meaning of May 9 was sanctified by the triumphal generation of the Artsakh war by liberating the city of Shushi. On this day we celebrate three feasts: May 9 is the day of the liberation of Shushi, the Artsakh Defense Army, and the Yerkrapah Volunteers Union.

03 May Post-Centenary Analyses (Part II)

In Europe, the mass annihilation of the Jews, Slavs and other national minorities was the program of the German National-Socialists that was carried out by the state through the army, mostly in gas chambers. While in Western Armenia and Armenian-inhabited places of Turkey the annihilation of the Armenians was carried out by the state machine of the empire in its full strength and by its scum: not only  the regular army but also the ordinary Turks, Kurds, Circassians, criminals released from jails and other elements were engaged in killing. That is, the Turkish government had made its own people criminals. Will the Turkish state and people admit their sin for the Armenian Genocide? And will the Armenian people forgive them for 1915?

26 April Post-Centenary Analyses (Part I)

Today, more than 100 years after the Armenian Genocide, the threat of that blood-shed hasn't been eliminated. Once the Turks did not succeed in finally solving the issue they had, eradicating the Armenians and Armenia. We also saw that same genocidal hand in 2016, in Talish…
I have been feeling guilty for the victims of the Armenian Genocide for a long time. Then the victims of the Artsakh Liberation War were added to them, in some other context, then the victims of the 2016 April... For many years already, I've been killed with each Armenian soldier that has become the victim of this juggling called cease-fire… And constantly my mind is sawed up with the same question: "Why do we allow to kill us?"

19 April Armenian Poetry on the Banners about the Armenian Genocide During Artsakh Movement (Part II)

It is quite clear why the content of the banners of the peaceful rallies of February 1988 changed especially after the Sumgait massacre.
Our fight was constitutional; our people's revolt was expressed with peaceful rallies and marches, while the ideological rebellion was demonstrated on banners, which provide a rich material for research.
Especially notable is the creative aspect of the content of the banners: we could often find in them quotations from our famous people, especially from the verses of our poets. This also speaks to the fact that our writers have created a correct literature for us...

05 April Islamic Radicalism: Problems and Policy (Part II)

In the heart of the Arabic world, such a military-terrorist structure is formed that had not been in older times… It seems the radical Islamists of the previous period did not have such aspirations. And no other organization has caused so much destruction in the world… Various parts of the Middle East one after another are turning into boiling pots…
The terrorist organization called Islamic State did not appear suddenly in this region, from nowhere and in one day. Through this organization some try to solve their problems in the Middle East, and as a result innocent people suffer.
These sufferings do not bypass the Armenians of the region also...

22 March What Mysteries are Hidden in Armenian Soil: Sevan’s Secrets

The submariners group of the Ayas Club of Marine Investigations has made very important discoveries in the bottom of Lake Sevan that are valuable for our civilization. They have discovered traces of ancient settlements, an entrance to a cave, the 2-meter-high top of a pyramid, a bone of a Bezoar goat, etc.
The works of the Club are limited because they are not supported by the Government. And then we wonder why we are unable to present our values to the world…

15 March The Heirs of Garegin Nzhdeh's Ideas (Part II)

A hundred and more years ago Garegin Nzhdeh wrote works that were particularly addressed to the youth. He wrote with a feeling of alarm because the Armenians were on the verge of assimilation; we had lost our statehood, while some groups of the Armenians that had escaped death and found shelter in different parts of the world, especially the young ones, felt shame for being Armenians because of their status in those countries. But it is the duty of the youth, according to the words of the General, to "carry out the demand of the time and save our people whose future is in danger."
Unfortunately, Nzhdeh's fears are actual nowadays also. Luckily, also nowadays he has followers.

Recently, a group of young people republished some of the works by Garegin Nzhdeh. They did not only published these collections but also organized the book presentations.
These young people with high ideas, together with a group of their peers, have mastered the precepts of their great teachers, Garegin Nzhdeh and Hayk Asatryan, very well and are voluntarily carrying out a patriotic mission.

01 March The 1918 Stigma of the Georgians...

This time we're talking with Russian-Armenian University lecturer, Doctor of Physics and Mathematics Vladimir Harutyunyan about a less known event in our history, the Armenian-Georgian War of 1918. This war began after the inhabitants of Uzunlar and Disik villages revolted against the Georgian violence. The military actions were stopped on December 31 by the efforts of Tbilisi-based French and British missions. These events are the topic of another collection comprised by our guest, "The Armenian-Georgian War (1918): Materials and Documents."

22 February Artsakh Movement or Armenian Revolution?

The Artsakh movement has been interpreted, analyzed and assessed on different occasions by both Armenians and foreigners. Their ideological, political, legal, socio-psychological and other opinions do not differ essentially. Of course, we're not speaking here about Turkish or pro-Turkish assessments. But Harutyun Marutyan's conclusion differs from all the opinions that we have known or accepted so far. He calls the Artsakh movement "revolution." And his classic arguments for this are convincing enough.

15 February Wilsonian Armenia

In January 1927 the Senate didn’t ratify the Treaty of 1923 between the USA and Turkey, which is an unprecedented fact in the history of U.S. diplomacy. The senators explained this refusal by a number of reasons one of which was that Turkey did not implement Wilson’s Decree. This is a trump card in the hands of the USA, which can be used against Turkey at any time.

08 February You Have Surrendered Your Portion of Lands Without a Shot

After the April military operation, the members of our society, both inside the country and abroad, became again political scientists, experts, diplomats, analysts, commentators, etc. The discussions and commentaries in Armenian media and especially in social network on surrendering the liberated lands had made many people fall into hysteria and lose mental balance. This psychological terror was a clearly intentional operation.

01 February Again on the Disgrace of Kars

The fall of the first Armenian republic was a consequence of international conspiracy. But what did we do to defend the fortress of Kars and to preserve the Armenian statehood? Have we tried to guess what public relations were formed in Armenia and particularly in the province of Kars and what the atmosphere and conditions were in the country because of which the army suffered that great disgrace?… Why didn't the Armenian army fight in Kars, why didn't it accomplish its duty? While in those same days, Dro defeated the Turks in the battle of Surmali...

25 January Issues of Convergence of the Two Armenian Literary Languages

Our nation has an astonishing fate. In different aspects. A split Fatherland. Two Churches. Two literary languages. Two Armenian republics. Our people have struggled to unite the last two since the dawn of the Soviet state. The case with the literary languages of the Church and modern Armenian is different. If only a good will is necessary for uniting the Armenian Apostolic Church, the case with literary Armenian languages is different. These are different language systems, and an incorrect interference can have grave consequences…

18 January National Identity and Historical Memory

The phrases “national identity” and “historical memory” are often used in our oral or written speech. They are deeply related to each other and are conditioned by each other. During the national revival of any people, when the society awakes from its long numbness, the driving power is, of course, the memory of the past. That is, the realization of the notions “national identity” and “historical memory” forms the life environment that is aimed at national preservation. In other words, the historical memory reawakens when national identity becomes endangered.

11 January The Issues of Endangered Identity in Armenian Literature (Part II)

The phenomenon of Mher the Junior has become our permanent companion. Charents called the confinement of Mher in Agravakar a "plot against the Armenian nation." Levon Khechoyan identified himself with Mher the Junior. What did Mher carry with himself to Agravakar in order to preserve it?... The alienation of the Armenians from their own country has become an ordinary thing. Why is this happening?... Why is the supreme, the national factor of the system of moral values endangered? Why do some ardently rush to what is material, to money?... What has divided the wholeness of national morality?...

04 January What Mysteries are Hidden in Armenian Soil

The Armenian Highland was a land of holy laws, and its soil has kept the identity card of Armenia to this day. It became possible to discover the treasures contained in this soil only in the conditions of the independence of our country and to break some artificially created stereotypes in science. Our mother soil is itself a historical monument, and it's the duty of all of us to preserve its each millimeter. In our small republic and in Artsakh, such ancient  places have been excavated over the past few years that have caught the attention of a number of scientists, especially archaeologists, of the world.

28 December Breakable Scientific Stereotypes

For already many years, the expeditions of the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography of the NAS RA, together with their foreign colleagues, carry out excavations in Areni (Vayots Dzor region) and in the stone-age station "Nor Geghi – 1" (Kotayk region). They have already published several articles about their finds in authoritative scientific journals of the world. In Nor Geghi, they have discovered 325-330 thousand-year-old stone tools, that is, tools that had been created by primitive humans. These finds give an exclusive possibility to break old stereotypes in the world science.
