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

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…

25 February 2015. She’s from Serbia… She’s in Novorossiya Fighting the Uniates… the Orthosphere Stands TOGETHER

00 Serbs fighting in the VSN. Novorossiya. 25.02.15

_______________________________

The two largest groups of foreign volunteers in the VSN are Greeks and Serbs… does that surprise you? The Orthosphere stands as one. It’s like when Russians went to help our Armenian bros in Nagorno-Karabakh. All Orthodox have an OBLIGATION to stand openly, publicly, and fearlessly for our Orthodox coreligionists in Novorossiya. That’s why the actions of people like Victor Potapov (who works for the American enablers of the Uniate junta), Vassa Larina (who associates with the Uniate enemies of Novorossiya), and S L Kishkovskaya and S A Schmemann (who work for the Western anti-Orthodox media machine) are questionable in the extreme. Our coreligionists have a knife at their throats. Those I named help those who hold the knife to their throats. I call that evil… I’m not alone.

Armenian and Syriac Orthodox Patriarchs Ask Christians to Remember the 1915 Genocide as Centennial Nears

armenian genocide memorial

______________________________

On Wednesday, the First Hierarchs of the Armenian Apostolic Church and the Syriac Orthodox Church urged all Christians to remember and reflect on the genocide of Armenians and Syriac Christians in Turkey in 1915, where up to 2 million people died or disappeared without a trace. A joint statement by Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of all Armenians Karekin Nersessian and Syriac Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch Moran Mor Ignatius Aphrem Karim said, “We invite the entire Christian world to unite in prayer at the Armenian Genocide and the Syriac Sayfo centennial commemorative events in 2015. We call upon the civilised world to recognise and condemn the crimes committed against the Armenian and Syriac peoples as well as other Christian communities”. Since Armenians made up nearly 1.5 million of the victims, many call the 1915 massacre during World War I in Ottoman Turkey the Armenian Genocide. The attacks on Christians eliminated almost the entire Christian population in present day Turkey, leaving almost an entirely Muslim nation {not so… the expulsion of the Greek Orthodox population from Ionia in the 20s did so: editor}.

As the centennial commemoration approaches, the Armenian and Syriac leaders want the international community to recognise and condemn the atrocities committed at the time. Earlier this week, the two patriarchs met at the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, the spiritual centre of all Armenians, to sign a declaration affirming the shared faith of the two sister churches. In September, Assyrian International News Agency reported that a documentary film is in preparation on the 1915 genocide, scheduled to première in 2015 as part of the commemoration. Produced by the Assyrian Federation of Sweden and the Assyrian Youth Federation of Sweden, the documentary explains the circumstances and details behind the genocide to a wider audience. Directed by Aziz Said from Berlin, the film crew spent close to three weeks in southeast Turkey shooting footage for the film. The documentary also seeks to expose the denial of the genocide as maintained by the Turkish state, and highlight the effect the massacre still has on Assyrians today. The Genocide1915 website provides a comprehensive history of the conflict. It notes that 24 April is the commemoration day of the genocide as the genocide began that night in 1915, when the Turks rounded up and executed close to 250 Armenians within 72 hours, including doctors, lawyers, and politicians.

______________________________

The above images are of Mil Mi-24 assault helicopters of Armenian Frontal Aviation. Armenia is in a rough-ass neighbourhood, with hostiles on its borders. Ergo, it behoves them to cleave to those who’ll have their back in the clutch. Russia has always stood by Armenia. Indeed, the Mi-24 is a Russian-made craft. Recently, Armenia chose to join the TS EvrAsES NOT the EU… that pissed off the Americans mightily. Well, I’d say that the Armenians made the only sane decision open to them, given their situation. Armenia is safe because Russian forces are inside the country. To be blunt, the USA wouldn’t guarantee Armenia against Turkey and Azerbaijan. Indeed, given American actions in Iraq and Afghanistan, and American indifference to Turkish and Azerbaijani pogroms against Christians, Armenia faced a no-brainer. Would they join with Russia, who WOULD help them when the shit hit the fan, or, should they join with the USA, who’d leave them to the tender mercies of the Turks and Azerbaijanis? After all, Armenia doesn’t want a repeat of 1915!

Armenia did the only thing open to it. Besides, both Russia and Armenia are part of the Orthosphere. Why count on strangers when the neighbours are at hand? Russia and Armenia… friends forever!
