History has shown that, as 100 years ago, Armenians are still dealing with an eternal enemy, that is, Turkey. This is what Head of the Division for History of the Armenian Cause and Armenian Genocide History of the Institute of History at the National Academy of Sciences of Armenia Armen Marukyan told reporters today.
Marukyan stated that whereas the Bolshevik leadership supported Turkey a century ago, modern-day Russia is Armenia’s strategic ally. He also noted that even though there are many discussions on Russia’s military support to Armenia, Russia is already providing military aid to Armenia, evidence of which is the fact that Russia is actually fulfilling its obligations before Armenia as an ally.
“This particularly concerns the strikes in the direction of Idlib. Everyone knows that Turkey has sent terrorists to Azerbaijan from Idlib. Now, as the latest events showed, no more terrorists are being sent since Russia has destroyed all military bases,” the historian emphasized.
According to Marukyan, due to Russia’s operations in Idlib, Turkey was actually compelled to put its 1,200-member special detachments into action since it can’t use its terrorists for the time being.
