Immediate actions are needed by the international community against Armenia’s provocations, Peter M. Tase, the US expert on European and Latin American Politics, told Trend.

“On July 12, the fascist government of Armenia has once again committed horrendous crimes against humanity and grossly violated the UN Security Council resolutions.

What was life like in Soviet Caucasus Republics (PHOTOS)

This is what communism looked like in Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan when they were Soviet republics.

The Soviet Caucasus was famous all over the USSR for its wine, health resorts and colorful local traditions.

Nature and architecture

The Caucasus is a mountainous region. People who live there take pride in this fact, as they believe harsh conditions strengthen their characters. Ancient monasteries standing lonely among mountainous landscapes is a common occurrence in this area. Yet, the Soviet past greatly influenced the local landscape, leaving monuments and buildings that are very characteristic of the Soviet urbanism behind in its wake.

Beyond Motherhood: Female Fedayees

The term fedayee, derived from the Arabic word fedayeen that literally means “those who sacrifice,” perfectly describes the civilian men and women who voluntarily left their families and lives behind to form self-defense units in response to the pillage and murder of Armenians at the hands of Turkish forces, Kurdish gangs and the Hamidian guards during what is often referred to as the Hamidian massacres and later during the struggle for independence of the First Republic of Armenia. It was during this time and under the reign of Abdul Hamid II in the late 19th and early 20th centuries that the fedayees fought to gain autonomy, independence and fend off the oppressors, namely the Ottoman Turks; the struggle continued until the establishment of the First Republic of Armenia. 

The fedayees were the true backbone of the Armenian nation as they numbered in the thousands and led the national movement. They were instrumental throughout the Hamidian Massac
