‘Armenianism’ to be studied as Threat in Disintegration of South Caucasus
Azerbaijan, Baku / Тrend corr S. Aghayeva / 'Armenianism' as a real threat in contributing to the disintegration of the South Caucasus should be studied, the director of the Human Rights Institution at the National Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan, Professor Rovshan Mustafayev, said on 25 May. He was commenting on the book 'Armenian-Speaking Population of Georgia and Problems of Revival of Unified Georgian Statehood' published by the National Academy of Sciences of Georgia.
Professor Mustafayev was the first to raise the issue of Armenian ethno-corporation offering his methodology on studying this phenomenon in his famous work 'Virtual Passions'. "I always suggested viewing the format of studying Armenian ethno-corporation as a threat to stability in the South Caucasus. Being the most mobile and unified ethno-social organization 'Armenianism' can fulfil any task for disintegration of a region based on different imperial centres," he noted. According to Mustafayev, the cores of Armenians' strategies and methods of violence do not change. What do change are their slogans.
In the aforementioned book, Georgian scientists wrote about retrospective discourses on the formation of the Georgian statehood and problems surfacing from Georgian-Armenian relationships. The authors refer to facts and events that have not yet been sufficiently studied by contemporary historians. Expanded details of the Armenian-Georgian military conflict of 1918 that involved Armenian territorial claims to independent Georgian land, as well as the genesis of the issue, are provided in the book.
The work reports on the formation of present anti-state activities of separatist groups uniting the Armenian ethnic minority in Georgia. Clear examples of attempts by Armenian scientists to falsify South Caucasian history are provided in the book.
