Ankara Slams Trump’s Statement on Armenian Genocide as “Disinformation”

________________________

On Thursday, US President Trump commemorated the anniversary of the start of the Armenian genocide in a statement released by the White House, saying that the “Meds Yeghern”, a term used by Armenians to describe the 1915 events, was one of the worst atrocities in the history of the 20th century. The Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement:

We consider that the disinformation and false definitions contained in US President Trump’s written statement of 24 April 2017 regarding the 1915 events came from information pollution created over the years by some Armenian circles in the USA by means of propaganda. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan attended the ceremony to commemorate the event at the Armenian Patriarchate of Istanbul on Monday. We expect that the new US Administration wouldn’t take credence in the one-sided historical narrative of these circles, known for their tendency to violence and hate speech, but that it should adopt an approach that takes into consideration the sufferings of all sides.

The Ottoman authorities killed about 1.5 million Armenians between 1915 and 1923; they also expelled hundreds of thousands out of their territory. Turkey disputed the figure and denied the genocide, blaming the deaths on wartime irregularities (it occurred during World War I and the following Greco-Turkish War of 1918-23: editor).

They’re not in communion with us. They’re not Orthodox.

Hey, that’s Orthodoxy for ya… we fight with one another… sometimes, even deny each other the chalice… but we’re one people, one faith, one heart, one soul… for there’s only one Christ. Let those with open hearts and souls hear…

The Orthosphere lives. There IS a unity amongst all Orthodox, both Eastern and Oriental, despite the theological disputes. Look at the love between Russians and Armenians… need I add more?

Official Statement by DNR Chairman of the Government A V Zakharchenko on the Centennial of the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire

00 Tatev Monastery. ARMENIA. Russia and Armenia Friends

______________________________

OFFICIAL

I address Armenia, the Armenian people, and Armenian citizens of the DNR.

The Armenian diaspora has long been an important and integral part of the multiethnic population of the Donbass, and for centuries Armenia and the Armenian people were one of the most loyal and fraternal allies of Russia and the whole family of the Slavic peoples. A centuries-old friendship, a common faith, and a common determination to preserve our traditions unite us. Together, shoulder-to-shoulder, we beat the common foe during the Great Patriotic War and rebuilt our national home. Today, Armenians in the DNR actively work to build our country; they bravely defend our motherland’s borders.

Today is a mournful date associated with one of the most tragic events in human history… the Armenian Genocide. One hundred years later, we, the people of the DNR, bow to the memory of all the victims of this tragedy. Today, we, just like the fraternal Armenian people did a hundred years ago, face persecution on ethnic and religious grounds. We also face those who wish to destroy us physically, to obliterate our language, and to break our will. Therefore, we understand the pain and suffering of the Armenian people; we can see how their anguish and misfortune relates to ours. We believe that there’s no place in the world for nationalism or for incitement to religious hatred… a new generation of Armenians should never experience the horror that Armenians all over the world call the Medz Yeghern (Մեծ Եղեռն/The Great Calamity). I want to wish fraternal Armenia and Armenians living in the DNR peace, wellbeing, and prosperity.

Editor:

The Galician Uniate nationalist nutters are trying to ram Uniatism down our throats… they’re trying to replace literary Russian with their hillbilly semi-Polish pidgin… they’re trying to kill all who oppose their demonic plans. They’ll stop at nothing. I fear that nationalist fanatics who support the fascist filth in Kiev run the so-called “Ukrainian Catholic” and “Ukrainian Orthodox” churches. No… most of the people aren’t guilty… not at all. I can’t name the people who showed kindness to me in the past or in the present, for fear that some nationalist creepo supremo would hurt them. Yes… it’s that bad. Therefore, have a care… be prudent, don’t argue with such sorts. Tell the truth… tell it to all who’ll listen. Remember… if we don’t stand tall for our coreligionists, the Uniate nationalists will do as the Ottomans did. In fact, since they’re fanatics, they’d be worse. This is the world that we live in…
