18 October Countries Sharing the Guilt of the Armenian Genocide (Part IV)

In the three previous broadcasts, we presented Germany as the chief sharer of the guilt of the Armenian Genocide, and the policy of two Entente countries, our alleged allies Great Britain and France, during the World War I generally and the Genocide years particularly. Now it is the turn of Russia, which was and is also considered an ally to us, but we forget that super powers have other political interests; they don't have any relation to romanticism…

11 October Countries Sharing the Guilt of the Armenian Genocide (Part III)

What was the difference of the policy of France regarding the Armenian question in the 19th-20th centuries from that of its neighbour, Great Britain?
France had its big share in the crash of the Armenian question and in the Kemalist aggression against the Republic of Armenia in post-war years. The superpowers were extremely mean in helping the Armenians, which was especially demonstrated at San Remo conference. What did the false prestige of the defenders of small nations in the East give to the allies?

04 October Countries Sharing the Guilt of the Armenian Genocide (Part II)

Great Britain has always had a pro-Turkish policy against Russia. Though during the World War I it was one of the Entente states and thus our ally, it did nothing to prevent the extermination of the Armenians in their homeland. 
The British Prime Minister David Lloyd George's hypocritical words—"The action of the  British Government led inevitably to the terrible massacres of 1895-97, 1909 and worst of all to the holocausts of 1915”—are another demonstration of British cynicism...

27 September Countries Sharing the Guilt of the Armenian Genocide (Part I)

Military historian Rafael Tadevosyan examined a number of actual issues, very important for the foreign policy of our country, in his study "The Armenian Genocide: Ten Questions and Nine Answers." The question of the Armenian Genocide is one of priorities of the foreign policy of our state. For more than 100 years, not only this problem has not been solved, not only we have been unable to solve it, but it has also become an inseparable part of our essence, and its consequences affect us and will continue affect in many regards. This is not an issue that could be easily solved, but we must achieve its solution. When? I don't know. But we are obliged to solve it. How? Perhaps each individual with dignity knows the answer...

20 September 300 Years in the Same Residence

The decree of the Venice Council of Elders from September 8, 1717, granted the island of San Lazzaro near the city to the Mkhitarist Congregation. In the period of the conquering policy of Napoleon Bonaparte when the churches in Italy began to be closed, the Mkhitarist Monastery not only continued its normal life but also received a special status, of an Armenian academy. In the field of Armenology, the contribution of the Mkhitarists is undeniable: they not only established this field but also created valuable scholarly works that have not lost their importance to this day.

13 September The Qualities of the Armenian Warrior

During the course of history, some foreigners have left numerous written testimonies about the qualities of Armenian soldiers. But the testimonies from ancient times are few. These inscriptions didn't intend to reveal and glorify the Armenian soldiers, especially if the authors were kings. They just tried to conquer the Armenian Highland and always met the resistance of the Armenian defense force armed with the best weapons of the time. If in later periods they were able to conquer the homeland of the Armenians, they wrote testimonies about the difficulty by which they had won the Armenian soldiers.

06 September Garo Hagopian

For decades, the Diaspora Armenian Garo Hagopian, a mathematician and specialist in IT field, has been simultaneously engaged in public activity. When still young, he entered the national and public sphere and founded and led Armenian cultural organizations and published newspapers. In 2003, he founded the Armenian Assembly of Europe, which aims to protect and develop the national and cultural interests of European Armenians as well as to support, to the best of its capability, the solution of the Armenian Question.

02 August The Homeland of All Armenians of the World

After the earthquake, we all thought that our Diaspora compatriots would make our country flourish in a short time, becoming themselves inhabitants of their Fatherland. But on the wave of the independence, the appetite of those that came to power was fathomless and their pockets bottomless. While the patience and trust of our compatriots from the Diaspora were not fathomless. Soon part of them, the ones who had been more deceived, bid farewell to their dreams once and for all.
But why, why...?

19 July The Prominent Scholar and Armenian: Edvard Atayan

The scholarly legacy of Edvard Atayan comprises several fields: linguistics, semiotics, philosophy, and psychology. As a free thinking scholar, he connected these fields with the principle of freedom without limiting and constraining himself in the frames of any theory. Semiotics and philosophy are intertwined in his studies, and he came to this through linguistics, which is natural, because, according to the scholar Atayan, "language is a part of this world, and at the same time, this world is also a language in a sense."

12 July ASALA: A Look from the Inside

Many of us who are contemporaries of ASALA, the Armenian Secret Army for the Liberation of Armenia, and some younger ones also, have gathered scanty information about this secret organization from media sources or have read very few books written with different intentions. Karo Vardanyan's novel "Explosions in Turkey and… Not Only: ASALA from the Inside" that is based on real events reveals information from one of the ASALA members who is not disclosed. "I do not know how much life is left for me to live. I only know that at least hundred times I have escaped death or inevitable arrest. Now I think it will be unfair if I take all of this away with me," he had said.

05 July History of A Diary

Dora Sakayan has recently published a book in German, "Man treibt sie in die Wüste" ("They drive them into the desert"), which is a legally valuable document about the Armenian Genocide and comprises the testimonies of Swiss witnesses – Fritz Sigrist-Hilty, engineer of the Berlin-Baghdad Railway during the years of the Genocide, and his wife Clara.
So far, numerous memoirs of foreign witnesses have been published in different languages about the Armenin Genocide. But diaries about the massacres are seldom and they usually include only certain days. While Clara Sigrist-Hilty wrote down her experiences every day for three years, 1915-1917.

28 June The Black Deeds of the Armenian Bolsheviks (Part II)

Also today we do not fully realize the cost of independence and we are either  pro-Russian or pro-Western… Also today there are layers in our society that can't yet understand whether we desired independence both in those times and in 1991, or it was imposed on us. It seems people voted for the Declaration of Independence in 1991 automatically. The question of questions remains the same today also: does the Armenian nation need statehood or not? If our people need it, then why are they so "pro-foreign"?...

21 June The Black Deeds of the Armenian Bolsheviks (Part I)

There is a popular saying, "Like cures like." If once we paid heed to this wisdom, we would not allow our Fatherland to be split and we would not be so deluded… The times were hard, it is understandable, but we ourselves carried out the goals of others by way of self-destruction… On the other hand, times are always hard and confusing for societies that do not have political thought, diplomacy, and a national program, and in such cases it is simply ridiculous and absurd to blame others...

14 June Stalinist Repressions: Victims and Culprits

What happened in the Soviet Union during the years of the Stalinist repressions was abstractly ascribed to the cult of personality created in the country. As if Stalin was the only monster in this environment while those surrounding him were sinless lambs… In reality, by the "cult of personality" phrase, an attempt was made to lay all the blame on a certain person, freeing the Communist Party and its regime from responsibility.
But that regime had been cruel since the moment of its birth...

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...
