Ancient Christian civilisation in Transcaucasia; divided between the Ottoman and Russian empires in 1914. The Armenian population in Ottoman Turkey was subject to mass killings and deportations by the Turkish government between 1915 and 1918, in which at least one million people were killed. Armenia took up arms against Turkey, and Russian Armenia declared itself independent on 28 May 1918. In the autumn of 1920, however, Turkish and Bolshevik forces over-ran the region and signed the Treaty of Moscow (March 1921), which ended dreams of an independent Armenian state until the collapse of the Soviet empire in 1991.
Ancient home of the Armenians. Adjancent to the Caucasus and Turkey
