Although there were no Armenians or Russians in Khankendi in 1813, in 1847 there was a house and an Armenian church inhabited by 80 Armenian and 52 Russian families. Nevertheless, in 1847 the settlement was officially named Khankendi on the maps of Russia #KhanendiNotStepanakert Image
Shaumyan-turning it into Stepanakert. Shaumyan was renowned amongst Khankendi’s Armenian population for being the organizer of the Anti-Azerbaijani massacres. #KhankendiNotStepanakert #KarabakhisAzerbaijan⤵️

“[Shusha’s] population has been estimated at 50,000, of which one-third consists of Armenians, the rest being Mohammedans.”
"Population of #Karabagh [in 1832] was 13,965 Tatars (Mohammedan) and 1,491 #Armenian families.Armenians [and Nestorian Christians] were induced by the Russian government, after the peace of Toorkmanchay, to emigrate from Persia to Karabagh."

25/ More old maps from 19th century showing zero trace of #Armenia. Meanwhile, #Karabagh and even #Shusha are clearly indicated. #Azerbaijan #Armenia #StopArmenianLies #StopArmenianOccupation

26/To clarify: Armenien is indicated on some of the maps=name of the area. There is no sign of the "ancient Artsakh". If there was a "country of Armenia" and it was not just an area,there should have been the "ancient Artsakh". But since there is no "ancient Artsakh", Armenia=lie
27/ Additionally, Azerbaijan was the name of the modern republic only after 1918. So, "Azerbaijan name is not on these maps" argument is moronic. Empire names change. The Turks who built the empire are still the Turks. Not Armenians... 😄

1/ For #Armenians who claim "Artsakh" is their land:

A simple GoogleNgram search reveals that the word "Karabag" was in Russian (!) archives since (at least) 1805.

The word "Artsakh" started showing up in those same archives only after the Rep. of Armenia was founded in 1918! Image
2/ Why the long pause? #Azerbaijan #Armenia

Because Armenians were a minority nomadic tribe spread across a wide area. This Russian archive says that Armenians should be re-settled (i.e., concentrated) into Irevan and Karabag khanates of... you guessed it - Azerbaijan. Image
3/ Even only a couple decades ago, this truth was not completely erased from your culture, as you can hear from the tongue of this Armenian history teacher:

El pasado 27 de Septiembre #Azerbaiyán inició una nueva #guerra contra Nagorno #Karabagh teniendo total apoyo militar e informativo de Turquía. ¿Por qué Azerbaiyán reclama Karabaj? ¿Qué intereses tiene #Turquía?
A continuación os comentamos un poco de #historia. Abro hilo 👇
Nagorno #Karabaj, llamado #Artsakh en armenio antiguo, fue cedido durante la URSS a manos de Stalin a la nueva creada Azerbaiyán (musulmana), sin acuerdo previo con Armenia (recién sobrevivido el genocidio perpetuado por el Imperio Otomano). Image
Nagorno #Karabagh está poblada mayoritariamente por armenios. Fue declarada independiente de #Azerbaiyán (musulmanes chiíes), tras la desaparición de la Unión Soviética en 1991. Persigue reconocimiento, independencia o incorporación a #Armenia (cristiana). Image

Heavy fighting between Azeri and Armenian forces along the Nagorno-Karabakh frontline.
Armenian MoD footage shows Azeri tanks burning.
More footage of what looks like a deadly morning for Azeri forces.
Several T-72 getting destroyed.

And here comes the Azeri army, destroying multiple Armenian mobile radar installation with what looks like Turkish Bayraktar TB2 drones, blinding the enemy.
Each of the field radars has a much higher military value than the T-72 cannon fodder tanks ...
