1/5 The armed forces of Azerbaijan went to provocation in #NagornoKarabakh. On March 25, they violated the line of contact in the Shushi-Lisagor section and occupied the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh.

2/5 The government of #Karabakh expects the peacekeeping forces of the #Russia to take steps to eliminate the #Azerbaijani violation. For days, 🇦🇿 has been spreading the lie that ammunition is being transported from 🇦🇲 to NK via the Stepanakert-Ghaibalishen-Lisagor mountain road.
3/5 It was a false pretext in order to carry out this provocation. Karabakh announced that, being surrounded for more than 100 days, this mountain road is being used to communicate with 4 villages of Stepanakert, Shushi regions.

#Artsakh/ #NagornoKarabakh is my home. It has been an honor to serve as State Minister for our people, our republic & our unwavering struggle for a free Artsakh.
I want to thank President Haratunyan for our time serving together. While we may have different views on the issues, we have common red lines, which no one can cross –– red lines important to preserve our dignity & ensure #Artsakh is free & #Armenian.
The people of Artsakh have demonstrated their strength in unity and resolve to stand together in their fight for justice and self-respect. While we have accomplished a lot together during this very challenging period, I am confident, we can do much more.

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! During an operational meeting with the permanent members of the #Russian Security Council, which was held on Friday via video call, Russian President Vladimir #Putin refused to discuss the topic of the second stage of mobilization.
He stated that no one canceled the mobilization and confirmed that its continuation "is a settled issue."
During the closed part of the narrow-format meeting, the President turned out to be more talkative, making several "progressive" statements.
#Putin said it was necessary to implement the idea of a quick and effective "special operation" against a neighboring country, where victory can be practically "guaranteed." The President considers #Georgia to be such a country.

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! Yesterday, #Russian President Vladimir #Putin, quite formally and without much fanfare, ended an informal CIS summit. The leaders of the participating countries managed to visit the State Russian Museum on Tuesday.
There, #Putin tried to communicate with colleagues in an informal setting. It did not turn out very well, but he did not despair and continued to entertain the guests until the final. Communication with #Lukashenko has become a game of "deceive me" for Putin.
Everything that #Putin asked #Lukashenko yesterday received a positive response. In such a simple way, Lukashenko once again "dotted the i", promising full integration, troops, weapons and joint campaigns against the "enemy", and help everywhere and in everything, BUT later.

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel!
#Russian President Vladimir #Putin had a difficult day yesterday. The night strike on the military airfield in Engels was not the only reason for the President's bad mood.
On the morning of December 26, a video conference between #Putin and the leadership of the military bloc took place exclusively in the form of a monologue by the President, who, in sophisticated forms, using mainly obscene language, explained to the meeting participants...
how wrong they were and that such incidents in the future should be avoided by any price. The President ended the meeting already traditionally - simply disconnecting from the air without giving the "interlocutors" an opportunity to express their position.

#OTD 8 Dec 1883, Hagop Oshagan, an #Armenian writer, playwright & novelist, was born in Bursa, Ottoman Emp. Among his many novels are the trilogy To One Hundred and One Years, The Harlot, and his best-known work, Remnants, which have been translated into English by G.M.Goshgarian Image
Oshagan was born in 1883 as Hagop Kufejian in Soloz, a village near Bursa. Oshagan was spared the fate of many of his fellow writers and was able to elude the Turkish secret police until early 1918, when he fled from Constantinople to Bulgaria, disguised as a German officer. Image
After the armistice, he returned to Constantinople in 1919, where he taught literature, actively participating in literary activities of the Armenian community. In 1922, as many other Armenian intellectuals, he left Constantinople permanently after the arrival of Kemalist forces. ImageImage

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! Yesterday, #Russian President Vladimir #Putin held talks with the President of #Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart #Tokayev in the Kremlin.
The visit of the head of #Kazakhstan to #Russia immediately after the re-election can rather be called a visit of courtesy and the result of agreements with #Putin. The President of Russia recently asked #Tokayev not to suspend his membership in the CSTO for a year.
#Putin promised a number of preferences in this regard. On the other hand, the President of #Kazakhstan did not make any fundamental promises but did not refuse Putin either. #Tokayev is an experienced and sophisticated politician.

Pennsylvania docs here - ready to drop more 411 about charlatan & ethically-challenged NJ resident, Mehmet Oz. Since the media hasn't.

Doctors everywhere find Oz detestable. In this 3rd truth bomb, we're gonna bring more receipts.

A thread.

#oz #PASenateRace #PASEN #MehmetOz

We all like our doctors to be caring and supportive, right?

Well, when Oz decided to run for Senate, he abruptly cancelled his show w/ no warning & screwed his staff - leaving them stranded. He didn't care. No loyalty.

Think he'll care about us?…

Using his show to promote antivaxxers? check!

He offered a platform to Jenny McCarthy, one of the most strident antivaxxers, who dangerously (and wrongly) claims a connection between vax and autism - shown wrong in MANY large studies.

Human Rights Watch has analyzed video showing the extrajudicial execution of at least 7 #Armenian POWs, apparently by #Azerbaijani forces.

"Killing soldiers who have surrendered is a heinous war crime." - @HughAWilliamson

Read more:…
The killings took place during fighting between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces that broke out in mid-September, when Azerbaijan made incursions into Armenia and along the border.
The fighting was one of several breakdowns of the Russia-brokered 2020 truce that ended hostilities over the unresolved conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh.

#OnThisDay Sep 15, 1918, the Ottoman Army of Islam captured #Baku. With the ethnic #Azerbaijan'i Turks at their side, they carried out a systematic massacre of the #Armenia'ns in the city, during which its estimated that 15,000 to 20,000 Armenians died.

#Turkey #ArmenianGenocide
A terrible panic in Baku ensued once the Turks entered the city. The Armenians crowded the harbor in a frantic effort to escape. Regular Ottoman troops were not allowed to enter the city for 2 days, so that the local irregulars – bashibozuks – would conduct looting and pillaging.
Later, Ottoman troops participated alongside the irregulars & the Azeris of #Baku in the plundering, who then turned their fury against the city's #Armenia'n population. Calls by the German officers to treat the local population with leniency were ignored by Ottoman commanders.

Thread: 14 September 2022: Day 203 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update notes the confirmation that #Russia is using #Iran's Shahed-136 drones, which have a range of 1,500 miles and were used in the attack on the MT MERCER STREET merchant tanker on 3 July 2021. Seems Moscow is using them for tactical strikes, not long-range.
Talk in #Georgia of opening a second front while #Russia is tied down in #Ukraine to liberate the occupied areas in Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

If you want to challenge for Russian-protected territories, now is the moment. (See also: #Azerbaijan.)

#Russian President #Putin is preparing to meet #Turkish President #Erdogan in Sochi. The Russian President is counting on productive negotiations and hopes to get concessions from Erdogan in several areas while being ready to offer a lot in return.
Recently, #Putin has been extremely dissatisfied with the policy of the #Armenian leadership, who, in his opinion, taking advantage of the difficult situation for #Russia, is leaving its sphere of influence, drifting to the West.
#Putin has no time and is not interested in dealing with #Armenia. He sincerely hates Pashinyan (prime minister of Armenia), considering him an upstart and a misunderstanding in Armenian politics.

I might one day turn this into a paper. But for now, let's look at this really cool part of our history! I am so excited!!

What I will call "devices" are abstract signs, seals... that got progressively more complex by end of #Sasanian era. They are also called #Tamga (or tamgha)
Tamga from Turkish. In Middle Persian and modern Persian, the word would be Nishaan or Neshaan ( Ossetian gakk)

These have an amazing and long history. They might have started as signs for cattle, later for clans & families. Were used by people across Eurasia

When asked if the 1.5 million figure is accurate for the number of Armenians killed, Hovannisian said that numbers were not important. He said, "a whole nation died." He asserted that Armenians were moved and lost their way of life in their homeland forever.
Moderator Ungar then turned to Justin McCarthy, Associate Professor of Middle Eastern History at the University of Louisville in Kentucky, and asked if he agreed. McCarthy expressed his concern about the way Armenians present the facts.

The Surp Pırgiç Church in Karaköy, #Istanbul is home to a unique ceremony that takes place once a year. The church was the first #Armenian Catholic church to be consecrated in the Ottoman Empire after the Armenian Catholic millet was recognised by Sultan Mahmud II in 1830.#Thread Image
When the church was first opened in 1834, Istanbul was suffering from a major plague outbreak. A painting of the Virgin Mary & Baby Jesus that was sent to the church as an inaugural gift from the #Vatican was paraded around the streets of Istanbul to ward off the plague. Image
Eventually, as the plague outbreak in the city died down, many attributed this to the miraculous powers of this painting in #SurpPırgiç. Sultan Mahmud II took note of this and gifted a diamond brooch to the church and its congregation. Image

I've been reading about the 1905 clashes between Armenians & Azerbaijanis, the first known inter-ethnic confrontation between the two, and reaffirmed my conviction that the disagreements & subsequent #Armenia-#Azerbaijan wars are the product of the 'divide et impera' policy 1/10
One of the reasons that triggered the bloody events was the underrepresentation of the Muslim population in local city councils. Although the Muslim population of #Baku accounted for around 80% of the electorate, they were entitled to less than a third of the seats. 2/10
Without a significant #Russia'n population in the region, Russians chose to rely on #Armenia'ns as Christians, promoting them to administrative roles. After a while though, seeing the rise of national sentiments among them, they did the contrary, this time betting on Muslims 3/10

On 23Dec.1947,Stalin signed a resolution by the Council of Ministers of the USSR on the resettlement of Azerbaijani kolkhoz members and other Azerbaijanis from the Armenian SSR to the lowlands of the Kur & Araz rivers.On 10Mar.1948,a further resolution on resettlement was signed.
Textual study of the #resolutions by the Council of Ministers of the #USSR shows that they had complete disregard for #human and civil #rights. #Azerbaijanis were removed, not from certain territories, as stated, but from the whole of #Armenia.
It becomes clear that the aim was to oust all #Azerbaijanis from #Armenia. According to the last, 11th, Article of the #resolution dated 23 December 1947, it was intended to settle foreign #Armenians in Armenia in place of the deported #Azerbaijanis.

#Istanbul is a city of endless gentrification. The most recent episode in an endless series of urban transformation projects in the city is the demolition of the old brothels on Zürafa Street in Galata. #Thread Image
42 structures are being demolished in and around Zürafa Street. Most of these buildings, which had been used as brothels for decades, had little historical or architectural value. Image
The demolitions are supposed to clear the area from modern structures in order to highlight Byzantine & Ottoman heritage. This is part of an ongoing project to create a so-called “cultural space” in Beyoğlu. Image
