Well-known Russian journalist, TV program host, and writer Vladimir Pozner has commented on the process of Armenian Genocide recognition in the US House of Representatives and Senate.
Responding to a question from an Armenian user on his Instagram, Pozner said there is now a political implication in the House's passage of the resolution, Pozner Online reports.
"What do you think? Why did the US House of Representatives acknowledge the 1915 massacre as genocide? Why only now? Well, because they are very angry at Turkish President Erdogan for having (1) bought antiaircraft S-400s from Russia and (2) carried out a military strike on the Kurds in northern Syria. It's all political games; in fact, the whole story is not interesting to them at all," Pozner wrote.
He added that the blocking of a US Senate resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide also fits into the logic of the political game.
"As if ‘we hit Turkey in nose, and it’s enough; no more is needed,’” Vladimir Pozner added.
