Armenian genocide

Mikhail Meyer: Germany and France set Turks against Armenians hundred years ago

The conflict, which took place between Armenians and Turks in the mid-1910s, was initially misunderstood, therefore it is misunderstood today by a number of historians as the so-called Armenian genocide. While the situation itself wasn't determined by the confrontation between the two peoples on the Ottoman Empire's territory, the President of the Institute of Asia and Africa of the Moscow State University named after M.V. Lomonosov, Mikhail Meyer, told Vestnik Kavkaza. The famous scientist admitted that his position on the events of 1915 in Turkey differs from the position of many politicians, which is why they even threatened to sue him for violation of the State Duma's order on recognition of the 'Armenian genocide'. "The situation of 'genocide should be determined not by confrontation between Armenians and Turks, but by the situation which has developed in the political life of that time, because the idea of ​​the war in the Caucasus is not an idea of Turks," Mikhail Meyer noted.
