Online Russian History class Discussion: Was Holodomor a Genocide?
- Student 1: no.
- Student 2: not really
- Student 3: I guess not
- Student 4: nah...
- Me: WHAT THE HELL YOU GUYS.
- We aren't in a classroom setting where I can tear their logic apart, and I am so frustrated.
- I'm more interested in that you have an online Russian history class?
Aliyev had received a letter from President Medvedev telling him that if Azerbaijan supported the designation of the Bolshevik artificial famine in Ukraine as “genocide” at the United Nations, “then you can forget about seeing Nagorno-Karabakh ever again.”
Such a bitchy threat
Maybe Medvedev is just sore over how tiny he looks next to Aliyev
But I don’t know much about the official standpoint of the Kremlin towards the Holodomor. They don’t deny it, but reject it as a genocide? I dunno.
Nor do I know exactly how much sway Russia holds in the Nagorno-Karabakh issue. They’re involved in talks with Armenia and Azerbaijan, but the power to take Azerbaijan out? I durn think so.
