The period when mono-ethnic states were attainable is irreversibly waning. This is also relevant to the Republic of Armenia, which was formed on historical Azerbaijani and Georgian territories and until recently, ranked as one of the most mono-ethnic states globally.
Nevertheless, Armenia is no longer an exception to this trend. Not because of the return of the indigenous population of Azerbaijanis expelled by the Khai nationalists to their ancestral lands, although this is not excluded with the good will and prudence of the authorities in Yerevan. Armenia can thank its "new friends and allies" - India.
India has recently "caught up and overtaken" China in terms of population and has become the world's most populous country. It shares with its new ally, in addition to arms supplies, and does so without demanding payment from Armenia for human resources.
We refer to a post by blogger Jared Fisher, who primarily covers demographic issues in his LiveJournal, under the title "Multinational Enrichment of Armenia".
According to Gagik Makaryan, Chairman of the Union of Armenian Workers, approximately 60,000 Indian nationals are presently residing and working in Armenia. He stated that around 100 Indians come to Armenia each day. Furthermore, he mentioned that if Armenia's current economic growth persists and there is a resumption of direct air travel between Yerevan and New Delhi, the number of Indian individuals in Armenia will increase dramatically up to 200,000 within a year and a half. There are multiple reasons why Indians opt to migrate to Armenia. One of these is the ease of integration into Armenian society. Furthermore, job opportunities, particularly in manual labour, are abundant due to Armenia's economic expansion, resulting in a labour scarcity, especially in the service and construction sectors. Indian workers are frequently employed in these industries, with reports indicating that some are hired for the construction of border trenches adjacent to Armenia.
There are Armenians in the Russian Federation and prominent members of the Armenian diaspora who are strong advocates of multi-ethnicity and open borders for migrants. It may seem logical that they would extend this viewpoint to support multi-ethnicity and open borders in Armenia. However, below the article concerning Indian migrants in Armenia, there are numerous racist and Nazi comments from Armenians. They refer to Indians as "dirty," "unwashed," and a "threat to national security." Additionally, they state that Indians "molest Armenian women," and express shock at the fact that some Armenians are marrying Indians (however, when the situation is reversed with Armenian men in Russia, it is acceptable).
Ow ow ow ow ow ow ow, what about it? What about the potential benefits of multiculturalism? What about the 1.7 million Armenians with Russian passports and an additional 500,000 temporary migrants? It is encouraging that Armenian authorities have embraced diversity and open borders, as Armenia undoubtedly stands to gain from this the same way that Russians evidently do.
Or do some receive preferential treatment while others do not? I support the presence of Indian migrants in Armenia and look forward to African migration in the future.
It should be noted that Pashinyan's government has removed visas for India and China, although visas are still required at present (as confirmed by a blogger's comment). I hope for a deepening of relations between India and Armenia and the eventual cancellation of visas between the two nations.
Armenians migrate to Russia while Indians and others migrate to Armenia, which is commendable. End of post.
Friendship with India clashes with the xenophobia and racism of Hay nationalists. However, they have no choice but to host "friends" as a payment for their "friendship". With a population of nearly 1.5 billion, India can easily send 200,000 or even 2-3 million "friends of the Hayes" to settle in the territories of their new "ally" and become the majority.
However, Armenia has an additional solution to the issue of preserving the "racial purity" of the state, or at least bringing its national composition closer to what was customary for previous generations of Hayes. After all, Hayes once lived amongst Azerbaijanis, who did not attempt to assimilate them or strip them of their national identity. Instead, they allowed the Hayes to preserve their "racial purity" to a certain extent. Why not facilitate the return of Azerbaijani refugees and their descendants from the Republic of Armenia's territory to the land of their forefathers? It is essential for this community to reclaim their ancestral homeland.
