The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.

      Sochi authorities force Armenian community to demount monument to General Andranik

      May 28, 2011 - 12:51 AMT

      PanARMENIAN.Net - On May 28, a monument to General of the Russian army Andranik Ozanyan should have been unveiled in Volkonka settlement of Sochi, Russia. The event was dated to the Day of First Republic of Armenia. It was expected to bring together around 5,000-6,000 Armenians from Krasnodar region, Abkhazia, etc.

      However, the local authorities have firmly hampered the monument’s unveiling and stated that Armenians will need to demount the monument, threatening that otherwise it will be destroyed by the authorities.

      The authorities explained their decision by the fact that the monument’s unveiling may lead to Turkey’s refusal to participate in the Olympic facilities construction.

      Armenia’s Consul Ararat Gomtsyan told Armenian public activists of Sochi region in a phone conversation that he is unable to do anything. He also advised to meet the authorities’ demands. According to representatives of the Armenian community, the decision was adopted even in Moscow, but not in the region and due to the efforts of Azerbaijanis.

      It should be noted that this is not the first anti-Armenian action of the Russian authorities in Krasnodar region. “There is a certain policy of the Russian authorities towards the Armenian population,” reads a statement of the Armenian community.

      General Andranik Ozanyan is Armenia’s national hero. He is one of the leaders of the Armenian national liberation movement in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He is also a national hero of Bulgaria. He was one of organizers of Sasun and Zangezur defense.

      On August 31, 1927, legendary General Andranik Ozanyan passed away in Fresno, California. His body was transported to France, and buried in the French Pere Lachaise cemetery. In 200, the government of the second independent Armenian Republic decided to relocate General Andranik’s remains to Armenia, where he received an honorable military reburial at Yerablur Pantheon.

          Community Ordered to Take Down Gen. Antranig Statue in Sochi


          SOCHI, Russia—What was to bring together 5,000 to 6,000 Armenians from around the Krasnodar region of Russia and Abkhazia for a community-wide May 28 celebration turned sour when local authorities ordered the Armenian community here to bring down a statue of General Antranig, which was to be unveiled for the event.

          According to members of the Armenian community in Sochi, local authorities said that the statue must come down, or it will be demolished.

          The authorities explained their decision saying that the unveiling of the statue might anger Turkey, which could refuse to take part in the construction of facilities for the Sochi Winter Olympic Games in 2014.

          Armenia’s Consul General Ararat Gomtsyan told Armenian activists of Sochi in a phone conversation that he was unable to do anything. He also advised them to adhere to authorities’ request. According to representatives of the Armenian community, the decision was adopted in Moscow, but not in the region. They claimed that pressure from Azeri groups led to the decision.

          “There is a certain policy by the Russian authorities toward the Armenian population,” said a statement issued by the Armenian community, which claimed that anti-Armenian sentiments in Krasnodar were prevalent.

          Sochi and that region of Russia is home to a large number Hamshen-Armenians, who also issued a statement expressing their anger.

          “General Antranig is not only a national hero but our compatriot, native of Trabzon, just like many Armenian residents of Sochi. It is not a mere coincidence that Armenians of Sochi were the organizers of the monument,” read the statement of Hemshin Armenians in Russia.

          “Dismantling of the monument is not only an affront to the memory of Gen. Antranig, but also to the memory of our ancestors,” said the Hamshen-Armenian announcement. The community said it considered the order an act of vandalism.

          Gen. Antranig is an Armenian hero who led battles for the liberation movement of Armenia, including those for independence. He organized the defense efforts in Sassoun and Zangezour.

          He died in Fresno on August 31, 1927 and was buried in Paris until the Armenian government in 2000 arranged the relocation of his remains to Armenia where they are interred at Yerablour National Cemetery in Yerevan.

          Its about self interest at personal and national level often at odds with the above.

            It's a shame the city is bowing down to Turkish pressure. Is there anybody that can stand up to the Turks? Or is everybody afraid of angering them?

              F**king weasals, no backbone. On the positive side, I am glad. Glad because this shows Turks still hate and fear General Andranik. I believe it was Ataturk who said, "in order to conquer the Armenian nation, we must do it not by miliarily, but by preventing the births of future Andranik's."

              Turks are trying to erase our history, our cementaries, our churches, our crossstones, and our heroes. This should serve to wake up some sleeping Armenians.

              Last I heard the statue is going to be moved elsewhere out of the city. But by goly, this is silly. It would be like the US forbidding the statute to Soghomon Tehlerian in Fresno. This is really bullxxxx, but what remains correct, is that they should have complied with city regulations and obtained express permission before putting it up in the first place. There are rules and regulations everyone must abide by.

                General Andranik’s statue will be erected in Adler

                21:20 • 08.06.11

                Armenian General Andranik Ozanyan’s statue in the Russian city of Sochi has been dismantled to be moved to Adler, the spokesperson of Armenia’s Ministry of Diaspora has said.

                Speaking to Tert.am Tevos Nersisyan said that the local Armenian community had ignored municipal regulations while erecting the four-meter high statue.

                “The Armenians initiated, ordered, get the statue ready and erected it without asking the authorities [for permission], not observing basic regulations,” said Nersisyan.

                “A city’s architecture has its clear-cut rules, hasn’t it?” he asked.

                The monument built by Armenian artist Marat Minasyan was to be presented to the public on May 28, the day Armenia celebrates the anniversary of its First Republic.

                However, after it was erected, the mayor of Sochi, Anatoli Pakhomov, issued a decision, urging the Armenians to tear it down. The statue was demolished on May 27.

                Further, Nersisyan played down the incident, saying that the statue will not fade into oblivion as after days of negotiations the local authorities permitted to transport it another Russian city - Adler – whish is home to a larger Armenian community.

                  Armenian Ministry: General Andranik’s statue will be erected near Sochi

                  The statue of Armenian General Andranik Ozanian that was dismantled in the Russian city of Sochi even before being ceremonially unveiled late last month will be moved to a nearby town, a spokesman for Armenia’s Diaspora Ministry confirmed on Wednesday.

                  In an interview with Tert.am Tevos Nersisyan said that the local Armenian community had ignored the municipal regulations while erecting the four-meter-tall monument to the revered Armenian national hero of the late 19th-early 20th centuries.

                  “The Armenians initiated, ordered and got the statue ready and erected it without asking the authorities [for permission], failing to observe the basic regulations,” the Ministry’s representative explained, adding that after days of negotiations the local authorities had allowed the statue to be transported to Adler, which is home to a larger Armenian community.

                  The monument to General Andranik in the village of Volkonka near Sochi was to be ceremonially unveiled on May 28, the day marked by Armenians as First Republic Day in memory of the short-lived independent statehood in 1918-1920. But the night before the event the monument was unexpectedly dismantled and removed by the Sochi representatives of the Union of Armenians of Russia (UAR), who explained the move by the pressure from the Sochi municipality. The UAR later pledged to settle the matter.

                    Excellent points made in the above blog.
                    For the first time in more than 600 years, Armenia is free and independent, and we are therefore obligated
                    to place our national interests ahead of our personal gains or aspirations.
