Turkey and Russia are equally responsible for 1915-1923 Armenian genocide,” said Armenian historian Rafael Hambarsumyan, APA reports.
He said Russia always used Armenians in its invasion policy, made them victims of its interests.
“During the World War I, Russia helped Turkey to pursue a genocide policy against Armenia mobilizing 200 Armenians to the front against Germany. According to the 1921 agreement between Turkey and Russia, eastern parts of Armenia was invaded and shared between Turkey, Georgia and Azerbaijan. The agreement aimed to wipe out Armenia completely. Finally, there is hardly any writer from east Armenia who Russia has not ever exerted physical pressure on,” he concluded./APA/
