I intend to do more pieces on it, but I want everyone to note that this year is the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Holocaust. In 1915, the Ottomans began their massacre of the Christian population of the Empire… not only Armenians, but Syriacs, Assyrians, and Greeks as well. All suffered… in a catastrophe that’s been rarely equalled. The Middle East hadn’t seen the like since the time of Tamerlane… Europe saw its like in the Nazi Holocaust (which encompassed Roma, Slavs, and Greeks as well as Jews… all were Untermenschtumen in Nazi eyes). Russia is Armenia’s friend… always has been… always will be. Yes… we aren’t in communion… however, that hasn’t prevented close fraternal relations between the Patriarchate of Moscow and all the Russias and the Armenian Apostolic Church. Patriarch Kirill and Catholicos Karekin are personal friends, as well as being brother hierarchs. We should do likewise and promote good relations between the Russian Orthodox and Armenian diasporas in the USA and Canada.

Armenia still fights for its life. Russia stands by it… America stands by the enemies of Armenia. No wonder that Armenia joined the Customs Union of the Eurasian Economic Community (TS EvrAsES)… it stands with those who stand by it, not against it. Remember the White Bear and his bravery in the Nagorno-Karabakh War… that’s why Armenia still lives… it’s people REFUSE to give in…

The Orthosphere IS one…
