Armenia is currently restoring economic ties with Turkey, and according to an unspoken precondition set by the Turkish authorities, the Armenian side removed from its agenda the issue of recognizing the Armenian Genocide carried out by the Ottoman Empire in 1915.
In a conversation with RUSARMINFO, Russian political scientist Jacob Kedmi stated that no kind of political conjuncture can replace the national self-awareness and memory of the people. “Whatever the politicians do, the Armenian people will never turn that page throughout their history,” said Kedmi. He also said that such national tragedies have no statute of limitations and there is no forgiveness for those who actively or passively participated in the genocide.
A genocide against Armenians is being carried out right now, and Turkey and Azerbaijan have made that very clear.
The West and Russia are doing little about it.
In fact, in many ways they are letting it happen and even encouraging it.
The Armenian government has failed to protect the country. Whatever the reasons for that, a new government of national unity must be formed to get Armenia and Artsakh out of these ongoing crises.
For that to happen, Armenians must be frank about the West and Russia.
It’s past due to tell geopolitical truths not matter what they may be.
A good start is to acknowledge that Russia is encouraging Azeri aggression against Armenians as a way for Russia to intimidate Armenians into submission to Russia.
Armenians must also harshly and openly criticize the West for its immoral support of Turkey and Azerbaijan.
