Criminalization of the Armenian Genocide Denialism

In April 2021 the Network State started a global campaign for the recognition of the Armenian Genocide and the Criminalization of its Denial.

The 12-point document was translated into 12 languages and sent to 111 countries – head of states, governments, ministries of foreign affairs, all diplomatic missions in Armenia, as well as tens of international organizations – UN, EU, OAS, etc. The document was also sent to hundreds of international media outlets and influencers and published by several international media outlets.

The Network State Initiative uniting the World Armenians, taking into account that:

1. The Armenian Genocide is a terrible crime against Armenian people and all humanity;
2. The Armenian Genocide commenced in 1915 continues up to day, since the Republic of Turkey has been denying the fact of the Armenian Genocide for about 100 years, and the denial is a
stage of genocide;
3. The historical memory of the Armenian Genocide is the key component of the collective identity
of the Armenian people;
4. The recognition of the Armenian Genocide is essential for continuous vital activity of the World
5. The Armenian ethnos is deprived of its cradle of civilization – the Armenian Highlands, in
consequence of the Armenian Genocide,
6. The current Government of the Republic of Armenia has no right to represent the position and
interests of the World Armenians;

Declares that:

7. Demands from all UN member states, including the Republic of Turkey, and international intergovernmental organizations to officially recognize the Armenian Genocide;
8. Demands the Republic of Turkey to assume the obligation of unconditional compensations for the political, economic, financial, and moral and psychological damages caused by the Armenian Genocide;
9. Considers as invalid the Treaty of Moscow (of March 16, 1921) and Treaty of Kars (of October 13, 1921) signed between the entities that are not recognized as the subjects of international law and emphasizes that the Republic of Turkey has occupied the territories of the Armenian state for already 100 years with all the ensuing political and legal consequences;
10. Recognizes as invalid any document signed or to be signed by the former, present and future Governments of the Republic of Armenia with the Republic of Turkey, which overshadows the demand of official recognition of the Armenian Genocide and ensures the application of the aforesaid unlawful treaties of 1921;
11. Demands the criminalization and application of criminalization of the denial of the Armenian Genocide to be ensured in the territories of the Republic of Armenia and UN member states;
12. Demands from the UN member states and international intergovernmental organizations to include the history of the Armenian Genocide in the public education programs.
