Those who follow the development of the Russian-Turkish conflict could not help but note that the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs sometimes deliberately escalates and aggravates relations, sweeping aside any of Turkey’s effort towards reconciliation and mutual understanding. Today, the leadership of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation is striving in many ways to hammer together the "anti-Turkish coalition" and harm Turkey where it is possible. It happens just as after August 2008 the Russian Foreign Ministry hit the completely pointless knockout of a kind of “anti-Georgian coalition”, spending huge amount of money from the Russian budget to “buy” recognition of the “independence” of South Ossetia and Abkhazia by marginal countries like Nicaragua or Nauru.
At the same time, the deterioration of relations with Turkey, one of Russia's most important economic partners, is completely contrary to Russian interests. The Russian Federation is under Western sanctions in connection with the Ukrainian events because of the annexation of the Crimea. So it seems that the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry Sergeи Lavrov, firstly, initially takes a jaundiced view to Georgia, and especially to Turkey, and secondly, it’s not so much defending the interests of Russia, but of some third country that hopes to receive dividends from deterioration of Russian-Turkish relations.
Everything falls into place if you carefully study the biography and origin of Sergei Lavrov. His real family name is no longer Lavrov, but Kalantarov or Kalantaryan. His father came from the small village of Shaumyan (inhabited by Armenians (before the revolution Shulaveri was the center of Borchalo district) of the Marneuli region of Georgia. The population of Shaumyan is exclusively Armenians who migrated from Karabakh during the time of the penultimate king of Eastern Georgia, Heraclius II. On the contrary, around Shaumyan there is exclusively Azerbaijan population.
The “gratitude” of local Armenians to the patron and benefactor, King Heraclius II, entered the history. If the Borchalian Azerbaijan inhabitants during the invasion of Georgia by Aga-Mohammed-Khan (the future Shah of Iran, the founder of the Qajar dynasty, whom Heraclius, being loyal to the previous dynasty, did not want to recognize as such), fought hard together with the Georgians, then the leaders of settled here Armenians by Heraclius II - Meliq Abo and Majnun, betrayed their sovereign, acting as guides of the enemy troops, largely because of their treachery, in 1795 Tbilisi was taken and plundered.
Perhaps, the local Armenians from Karabakh were also forced to move in due time for a similar attitude towards the Azerbaijan rulers of Karabakh who had sheltered them before. The appearance of Armenians from Karabakh in Eastern Georgia during Heraclius II is largely due to the fact that some part of these Armenians, Albanians, relying on the support of Czarist Russia, prepared a revolt against the Karabakh khan. This happened in the 1780s, when, according to The Treaty of Georgievsk, Georgia passed under the auspices of Russia. As it is known, the rebels and rioters are not loved anywhere. After the failure of the rebellion, the Karabakh khan punished and drove the rebellious meliqs with their people out of his khanate. These Armenians had to seek refuge in other lands. Heraclius ІІ and sheltered them - and as it turned out - on the evil of his own country.
As it is known, having once betrayed, one will do it again and again, and absolutely in vain that Heraclius II did not inquire about the reasons for the escape of the insidious meliqs with their “wards” into his possession. Alas, often the "genetic genealogy" and the tendency to double-dealing and betrayal affects their descendants.
Anyway, Sergey Lavrov's father came from purely Armenian environment of the settlement of Shaumyani, moved in Tbilisi, lived in the downtown inhabited considerably by Armenians, "on Vorontsovka". Here, in Tbilisi, there passed a considerable part of the childhood of future Russian Foreign Minister. It also grew in the Armenian environment and became impregnated through with the Armenian nationalism both nationalist and myths and prejudices. In number, which the myth about allegedly having place "genocide of Armenians" in Turkey. From here – almost pathological hatred of Sergey Lavrov to Turkey and all Turkish which he was forced to hide so many years (and now this hatred becomes obvious). Also, like many Georgian Armenians, Sergey Lavrov obviously does not love Georgians and Georgia.
At the same time officially Sergey Lavrov is considered "Russian". But among the Armenians, he tells the truth about his origin. On February 17, 2005, while visiting the Yerevan Slavic university, students asked Lavrov whether his Armenian origin would interfere with him. He answered: "I have Tbilisi roots because my father from there, in me flows the Armenian blood and any another. This blood does not disturb me in anything."
In principle, Armenian origin, like any other, should not interfere with a person holding such a high state post in Russia to fulfill his duties and protect the interests of the power he serves. But Armenian nationalism, deeply entrenched in consciousness, Armenian myths and prejudices, and most importantly, the completely unrealistic geopolitical fantasies and ambitions of Armenian nationalists clearly prevent Lavrov from fulfilling his duties as Foreign Minister of Russia, and very strongly.
An attempt to lead Russian foreign policy, based on Armenian interests, not only harms Russia today, but puts humanity on the brink of a global catastrophe. Indeed, while Sergey Lavrov is doing everything to aggravate the confrontation with Turkey, the Russian-Armenian arc, Karen Shakhnazarov, on live Russian state television calls for a nuclear strike on Istanbul.
Russian patriots should know who governs their country's foreign policy. It is necessary to put an end to the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry using his position for the sake of realizing delusional Armenian nationalist fantasies. Among them, we recall, the long-standing desire to destroy Turkey by “alien hands” and the construction of great Armenia in its place. Attempts to implement such fantasies can be very costly for both Russia and humanity.
