Miscalculated: Armenian authorities forgot about ADR lands
Many Armenian TV channels disseminated the Constitutional Act proclaiming the restoration of Azerbaijan's independence, emphasizing that it reads that the present republic is the legal successor of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic (ADR).
"This was done in order to show that the current definition of the borders between Armenia and Azerbaijan cannot be based on the Soviet maps, but the Armenian authorities miscalculated once again,” the telegram channel Yest Mnenie (There is an Opinion) reports.
Armenians themselves proposed this as an argument, not realizing that the ADR map of 1918-1920 is bigger than the map of the present Azerbaijan Republic - it includes Zangezur, Basarkecher, and Daralagez with Lake Goycha, and the total area of the ADR was 93.700 square kilometers, while the area of the present Azerbaijan Republic is only 86. 600 square kilometres.
