On June 4, 2022, within the framework of the “Unity Platform” initiative, a meeting-consultation of representatives of dozens of organizations and experts was held in Yerevan – https://www.armspb.org/post/spyurq-4-6-2022
Position of the Coordinating Council of Russian-Armenian Organizations (CC RAO) in connection with the first meeting on June 4, 2022 as part of the “Platform of Unity” initiative
Armenia is an international legal and political subjectivity of the worldwide Armenians, but it does not have sufficient resources, logistics, subsoil, other assets to solve the problems of the Armenian nation in general. The solution of national problems is hampered by the rift between Armenia and the Diaspora, which has recently become more acute, and must be stopped. Armenia must finally become an integral and harmonious part of a single and global Armenian world.
Ashkharazhokhov (Աշխարաժողով, Pan-Armenian assembly), historically traditional for our people, can become the highest collegial body of worldwide Armenians, uniting Armenia, Artsakh and the Diaspora (Spyurq). Ashkharazhokhov is called upon to realize the strategic goal of the Armenian people – its transformation into a single supra-regional, supra-party, global, technologically advanced, networked nation with a single, clear and implementable ideology based on the principles of spirituality and national values.
The Pan-Armenian Forum should become a unifying platform for developing principles for the formation of Ashkharazhokhov.
Ashkharazhokhov’s concept at the meeting on June 4 was presented by Sargis Tsaturyan, a member of the CC RAO (video in Russian) .
This process should be started by the convocation of the Pan-Armenian Forum, the delegates to which should be elected from Diaspora, Armenia and Artsakh.
On the one hand, in past years high goals were announced several times, but in the end they were discredited, therefore, within the framework of the current attempt, one must be very responsible and not allow another failure. On the other hand, since 2019, the government of Armenia promised to convene a Pan-Armenian forum, which was never held. The preparation and holding of such forums should not be behind the scenes. Therefore, it is important to have a nationwide information system, which should be built from the very beginning.
In Russia, there is a problem with the legitimacy of many Armenian community structures, which often do not represent real community life. These structures practice the decorative institute of electivity, being de facto entrepreneurial monopolies for many years. Such structures cannot be considered public associations, there are little changes in them, insufficient protection of the rights of compatriots, of native language and history, a weak level of patriotic education as citizens of Russia. Many community events are held formally, imitatively, in connection with which the question arises: how to form a representation from the Armenian community of Russia – the largest in terms of numbers in the Diaspora. For example, the poor representation at the meeting on June 4 of diaspora communities, incl. from Russia is a dangerous indicator.
The Coordinating Council of Russian-Armenian Organizations and the Russian-Armenian Association of lawyers ARMROST are long-term independent, supra-party, supra-group public and professional associations for the development and dissemination of a new methodology for structuring community life. CC RAO has a solid volume of dynamic information resources in Internet, incl. websites: Russia-Armenia.info, Russia-Artsakh.ru, HAYASA, Antitopor, Realist, Miaban, Khachmeruk and others. CC RAO expresses readiness for cooperation and considers it important to be represented in the working group for the preparation of the planned forum.
