The Armenian government announced the arrival of more than 100 thousand residents of Karabakh into the country after the Azerbaijani military operation

Since September 24, 2023, 100 people have arrived in Armenia from Nagorno-Karabakh. This was reported by the press secretary of the Armenian government Nazeli Baghdasaryan.

As a representative of the Armenian Cabinet of Ministers noted, 21 cars and other vehicles crossed the Hakari Bridge in the Lachin corridor. 043 people have officially registered as refugees; 81 displaced people have already been allocated housing by the Armenian government.



The reason for the mass exodus of Karabakh Armenians from the unrecognized republic was the military operation launched by Azerbaijan and the subsequent capitulation of Nagorno-Karabakh with the declaration of the cessation of the existence of the NKR. Before the outbreak of hostilities, 120 thousand people lived in Nagorno-Karabakh. That is, 5/6 of the population of Karabakh has already left for Armenia. The process of exodus of Karabakh Armenians will undoubtedly continue, since they clearly will not be able to feel safe after Azerbaijani troops establish control over the territory of Karabakh.

Despite official Baku’s claims about the “reintegration” of the Armenian population of Nagorno-Karabakh, it is likely that the vast majority of residents of the unrecognized republic will no longer remain in this region and will not return to it. The tragedy of the Karabakh Armenians will remain on the conscience of the current Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan with his attempts to maneuver between Russia and the West and subsequent clear distancing from Moscow.

      Aviator - this already happened after the defeat of the Armenians in the first Karabakh war, some of the Armenian refugees went to stay with relatives, including in Russia. There will also be an outflow of refugees from Armenia to Russia over time. Some will go to Europe and assimilate there...

        The scale of resettlement varies. There was a defeat, there was no clearing of the territory. And now comes the cleanup.

        But every cloud has a silver lining, at least one of the tension points in this region has disappeared. The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict has been resolved one way or another.

          Former assistant to the chief adviser to the President of Armenia on national security Vladimir Poghosyan suddenly declared territorial claims to Crimea and a number of Russian cities. Apparently he rashly said something wrong. Is Crimea 70% Armenian? What kind of fantasy? Where did he get this from? Provocateur.

          “And if there are no borders, we can take Armavir, Sochi and Crimea. Crimea is generally 70% Armenian,” he said.

      I think that there will be another wave of migration to the “unloved” Russia! I live in the Krasnodar region - we had the first wave of migration in the late 80s, after the Spitak earthquake, the second in the 90s-2000s. I work in the Ministry of Internal Affairs - now they often register a report on the facts of illegal issuance of citizenship to citizens of Armenia in those years (200s). He himself served as a conscript in military unit 5464 in Grozny, SMCM troops, at the end of 1990 he was on a business trip to Nagorno-Karabakh - they guarded the Moscow-Baku-Yerevan railway road, passing through a tunnel in the mountains, on the territory of the Zangelan region of the river. Azeybarjan, 60 km from the Armenian city of Meghri, so that Azerbaijani militants would not blow up the tunnel.

      For more than 30 years, especially the last two or three years (when Azerbaijan was methodically ironing out their army), they were screaming about the impending genocide... But, they became disillusioned with the Azerbaijanis and went to look for the coveted (with reports and monetary compensation) genocide in other lands...

    Creepy. The people of Karabakh are the very best Armenians. For Armenians in Armenia, they are like Donetsk people for Bandera.
    Armenians lived in Artsakh hundreds of years before the emergence of Azerbaijanis as a nation.
    And in Nagorno-Karabakh there is the village of Chardakhlu.
    Even in the army of the last Russian Tsar Nicholas II, 3 generals who came from Chardakhlu served. The people of Chardakhlin showed numerous examples of heroism during the First World War. The village gave 5 holders of the golden Cross of St. George.
    There is no longer a single settlement in the world, not even a single large city, that would provide two marshals at once. But the Karabakh village of Chardakhlu gave us Marshal of the Soviet Union Ivan Bagramyan and Chief Marshal of the Armored Forces Amazasp Babajanyan.
    All people from Karabakh proved themselves to be brave soldiers, which corresponded to their centuries-old military traditions. 24 Karabakh residents became Heroes of the Soviet Union, 7 became holders of the Order of Glory of all 3 degrees, thousands of soldiers were awarded military orders and medals. Almost all major Armenian military leaders have Karabakh roots. The names of twice Hero of the Soviet Union, one of the best pilots of the country Nelson Stepanyan (awarded the second Gold Star posthumously) and twice Hero of the Soviet Union Marshal of the Soviet Union Ivan Bagramyan are known throughout the world. In addition to Ivan Bagramyan, two other people from Nagorno-Karabakh also became marshals: Hero of the Soviet Union, Chief Marshal of the Armored Forces Amazasp Babajanyan and Air Marshal Sergei Khudyakov (Armenak Khanferyants), and Hero of the Soviet Union Karabakh resident Ivan Isakov (Hovhannes Isaakyan) was an admiral of the Soviet Union Fleet. Dozens of Karabakh residents became generals and admirals, commanders of the front, army, corps, and division. With their heroism, the Karabakh Armenians immortalized the glory of their wonderful land.

As a boy, he and his brother came from Karabakh to the Capital and the second time, Pavel Petrovich, by personal decree, assigned him to the Cadet Corps and awarded him the princely title. And Madatov was later able to thank the Empire!

      What are you saying? They appeared there AFTER the Russian-Persian and Russian-Ottoman wars. They were settled on the territory of modern Armenia. For this reason, they built a resettlement monument and it was called MARAGA 150 in honor of the 150th anniversary of the resettlement to these lands. Enough of telling fables and repeating Armenian mantras. They are so ancient that they bear our Turkic surnames.

        In general, I try not to communicate with boors, but for you I will make an exception. Don't talk about the past, live in the present. You probably guarded the refugee camp at the beginning of 1988 in the Masis region as part of the Soviet border guards, you probably, as part of the combined regiment of the 120th Guards Motorized Rifle Division in January 1990, carried out commentary service on the territory of Azerbaijan, you probably know why about 4 thousand Azerbaijanis fled from Armenia even before Sumgait . Do you want to count the number of refugees from seven regions of Azerbaijan adjacent to Karabakh? You probably began mass desertion of Armenians and military units on the territory of the Union starting in 1988. Study the history of events, and then make such statements. No one can take away the exploits of the Armenians during the Great Patriotic War; they were citizens of a great Power.

One merchant even knows that I know his son and he gives me significant discounts, smiling and quietly slips in a tomato and pepper that is starting to spoil...

It was about Armenians former Crimean Khanate, who have long been intermediaries in the slave trade.

And on the 20th anniversary of the Victory, he again received the title of Hero of the Soviet Union as a gift. Allegedly (according to the wording) “For the successes achieved in “fleet leadership.”
    So, there are titles and awards “for successes and exploits.” Are there “successes” and “feats” themselves?
    What kind of naval leadership decisions of just Admiral Isakov during the war years, which led the Red Fleet from victory to victory, were underestimated or undeservedly forgotten by I.V. Stalin, that in 1955 Khrushchov had to correct the situation and urgently assign Isakov the title of Admiral of the USSR Fleet?

      Not certainly in that way. Indeed, in the United States, by the time of the surrender of Karabakh, 9 states recognized its independence. Moreover, the largest of them was California back in 2014.
      In fact, if it were not for the firm and consistent position of Russia, which from the very beginning, since 1992, consistently recognized Azerbaijan within its internationally recognized borders (that is, with Karabakh as part of Azerbaijan), then no Turkey would have helped Azerbaijan. Yes, Turkey's assistance was significant. But if it weren’t for our firm position, Turkey’s help to Azerbaijan would still be of no use. And it doesn’t matter who would be at the helm in Turkey, be it Erdogan or anyone else. Yes, even three times Erdogan, he would not be able to do anything.
      In fact, it was our constant demand to all leaders of Armenia to solve the Karabakh problem. At the same time, we have never given anyone any reason to doubt this fundamental position of ours regarding the recognition of the territory of Azerbaijan and the ownership of Karabakh. The only thing we wanted was for this problem to be resolved without shedding blood.
      But the Armenians, as well as many of our compatriots, for some reason preferred to listen not to the official statements of our authorized persons (President, Prime Minister, Minister of Foreign Affairs...), but to all sorts of Bagdasarov and Zatulins. Who fed the Armenians with fairy tales that Russia supposedly only verbally recognizes Azerbaijan within its internationally recognized borders, but in reality Russia supposedly supported, supports and will support the Armenians. This is supposedly the most insider information. Zatulin was especially distinguished. It was his stuff in October 2020 that supposedly some of our airborne divisions were already sitting on planes and preparing to fly to Karabakh to land on the path of the advancing Azerbaijani troops. But the Armenians believed him then!!!
      Pashinyan is simply the first of the Armenian leaders to realize that we are not joking about the issue of Karabakh’s ownership. All the previous ones simply did not take this demand of ours seriously.
      Although... the first was probably Levon Ter-Petrosyan. But after his “epiphany,” his own people quickly removed him from the post of President of Armenia.

    And that’s not all.
    For example, why did the “liberator of Rostov” Madoyan receive the Golden Star of Hero of the USSR? They write about him that
    On the night of February 159, 28, the battalion of the 8th Rifle Brigade (1943th Army, Southern Front) under the command of Senior Lieutenant Gukas Madoyan occupied the railway junction - part of the Rostov-on-Don station, and in the morning led the combined detachment of the brigade, with which defended the Rostov station from February 8 to February 14, 1943. In six days of heroic defense, G.K. Madoyan’s detachment repelled forty-three enemy attacks, but held the station until reinforcements arrived.
    By a decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR dated March 31, 1943, for the exemplary performance of combat missions of the command on the front of the fight against the Nazi invaders and the courage and heroism displayed, senior lieutenant Madoyan Gukas Karapetovich was awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union with the presentation of the Order of Lenin and the Gold Star medal "(No. 731).

    In fact there were four battalions.
    Of which the 1st battalion of the 159th brigade under the command of Major M.Z. Dyablo captured the suburban station, and by lunchtime the 3rd and 4th battalions of Derevyanchenko and Madoyan stormed the Main Station building, the control room, the hospital and the school. Developing the offensive impulse of the brigade, the 2nd battalion of Art. Lieutenant A.M. Oreshkin drove the Nazis out of several blocks from Gorky Street to Sadovaya along Dolomanovsky and Bratsky Lanes. The trophies of the 159th brigade were 89 steam locomotives and 3000 cars on the railway tracks, as well as the warehouses of the Rostov group of Germans adjacent to the station building. The carriages and warehouses contained weapons, ammunition, food and uniforms.
    So the Rostov railway junction was taken by three battalions,
    1st Battalion Major M. Z. Dyablo
    3rd Derevyanchenko
    Madoyan's 4th Battalion
    and where somewhere nearby another battalion (2nd battalion) Art. Lieutenant A.M. Oreshkina.
    It was clear to the brigade fighters that the enemy would try to recapture the station area at any cost.
    The fighting was difficult.
    There were many wounded. Among them, the commanders of the 1st and 3rd battalions, Major Dyablo and Captain Derevyanchenko, were in serious condition. Several company and platoon commanders were killed.
    So, the commanders of the 1st and 3rd battalions were Major Dyablo and Captain Derevyanchenko, and the second battalion fought, although not far, but was cut off.
    In total, only Madoyan remained unharmed.
    So the fighters of all three battalions came under the command of Madoyan. Total 800 people
    .
    Honestly speaking, 800 armed soldiers and commanders, holed up in a pre-revolutionary building, is a huge force.

      Continued:
      From the Main Station engulfed in flames on the afternoon of February 11, with the help of conductors - depot drivers, survivors
      (I would say that not the survivors, but those who were not seriously injured (my footnote) )
      fighters of the Madoyan group
      (not all of the fighters, some of them submachine gunners N.Sh. Ipkaeva, remained at the Suburban Station (my footnote))
      moved to the foundry and tender shops of the steam locomotive repair plant. Behind the strong walls of the still-royal construction, a perimeter defense was quickly organized. The infantrymen counted every grenade and took care of every cartridge. Having barely fought off another attack by German machine gunners and flamethrowers, our soldiers decide to make a breakthrough on the night of February 12th. Having hidden the seriously wounded in the deep basements of the workshops, collecting all available ammunition at dawn, the soldiers of the 159th went on the attack in full force. Walking ahead of his comrades with a machine gun in his hands was Lieutenant Madoyan, next to him was the deputy commander, the agitator of the brigade department, Captain Shundenko.
      . (in fact, the deputy head of the political department of the brigade - my footnote)
      Beautifully written. But the expression “Hiding the seriously wounded in the deep basements of the workshops” in fact means that those fighters who “decided to make a breakthrough” simply abandoned their seriously wounded comrades and commanders as well.
      So: "
      In the morning, with heavy losses, Madoyan’s detachment managed to fight its way across the Temernik River to Bratsky Lane and gain a foothold on the territory of bakery No. 1."
      (if we are talking about the fact that the fighters crossed Temernik, then we are talking about that Bakery No. 1 named after the 15th Party Congress, which was located at Rostov Bratsky Lane 4. The distance to the Rostov-Glavny train station is about 1,5 kilometers . my footnote).
      Read on.
      “The fighters had neither the strength nor the ammunition to move further.”

      (That is, like, everyone got to the Bakery and alles kaput - my footnote).
      Read on.
      "But the soldiers of the detachment were lucky. From the area of ​​Portovaya Street
      (probably not from Portovaya Street, but from the port???)
      The scouts of the 248th Division made their way to their rescue. At the last moment they struck the enemy and pulled the brigade fighters out of encirclement."

      (Well, it’s just wonderful. Scouts found our tired fugitives and took them to their own. And since our troops were on the left bank, it turns out that the scouts evacuated Madoyan’s entire group to the left bank - my footnote).
      What about the locomotive plant (my footnote)
      And there, at the locomotive building plant, the battle continued. It was led by those who could not break through. And most likely those who did not want to abandon their seriously wounded comrades, whom, including Major Dyablo, deputy. battalion commander A.F. Kryukov, captain P.Z. Derevyanchenko.
      We read.
      Therefore, the shots did not subside for a long time in the workshops of the steam locomotive repair plant. Enemies used flamethrowers to burn out the last pockets of resistance at the plant. The soldiers of the brigade did not surrender. To this day, in the closed shops of the steam locomotive repair plant, one can smell the burning smell and taste the powder gases. The walls of the buildings are pitted with shrapnel and bullets of various calibers. Time seems to have stopped there forever. It stopped among explosions and mines and shells, the screams of the wounded and those burning alive in February 1943. In 2007, a search group conducted a survey of the plant's workshops. One day, among the spent cartridges, under a thick layer of broken brick, rusty reinforcement, and smoked pieces of concrete, the remains of three heroes, soldiers of the 159th separate rifle brigade, were discovered."

      __________________________
      The machine gunners, cut off in the building of the suburban station, fought separately. Judging by the fact that Ipkaev N.Sh. deputy The commander of the battalion of machine gunners was nominated for the Order of the Red Star for this battle, and later became a major - he and his men survived. Submachine gunners Ipkaeva N.Sh. didn't go anywhere. And they waited for help where they were defending. But the award to the heroic commander of machine gunners N.Sh. Ipkaev just received the Order of the Red Star.
      Some of the fighters, led by Madoyan, left, abandoning, oh, excuse me, hiding their wounded comrades in the basements, from which no one came out alive. Award - Order of Lenin and Gold Star Medal of Hero of the USSR.
      The documents of the site Memory of the People indicate that Major M.Z. Diablo was killed on 11.02.1943/XNUMX/XNUMX. But most likely, he was alive for at least another day. For this battle for rewarding (posthumously) was not presented.
      About captain Derevyanchenko P.Z. No information was found on the People's Memory website. Apparently captain Derevyanchenko P.Z. burned by the fire of German flamethrowers in the “deep basements of the locomotive plant workshops,” where Madoyan “hid” him. There was no mention of being nominated (posthumously) for an award for this fight. Well, or I introduced myself, but didn’t pass. There is no information. At all

    You are confusing something. Madatov was not a prince. He was a count.
