Ukrainian public figure, composer and producer Alexander Yegorov is confident that Turkey must recognize Armenian Genocide, apologize and try to get pardon and then create a new history of friendly relations between the nations.
"Germany was not ashamed to confess and apologize to the Jews and the entire world for the atrocities of the fascist regime. The same should be done by Ankara. They must wash out the shame for the crimes of their ancestors, especially taking into account Turkey's EU bid. In addition, Azerbaijan must stop its anti-Armenian policy launched in Baku and Sumgait, and recognize the right of Nagorno-Karabakh to self-determination,"? Analitika.at.uaquotes Yegorov.
The fact of the Armenian Genocide is recognized by many states. It was first recognized in 1965 by Uruguay. In general, the Armenian Genocide in Ottoman Turkey has already been recognized by 21 countries and 43 out of 50 U.S. states.
Turkey denies accusations of mass killings of Armenians during the First World War and is extremely sensitive to criticism voiced by the western states.
