Russian deputies seek accountability for Armenia genocide denial

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russian lawmaker Sergei Mironov said on Wednesday his party had submitted a bill to parliament on holding to account anyone who denies that the 1915 killings of Armenians by Ottoman Turkish forces was a “genocide”.

“We have just submitted a bill on responsibility for failure to acknowledge the fact of a genocide of Armenians by Turkey in 1915,” Mironov, the leader of the opposition Just Russia party, said on his Twitter account, a day after the Turkish air force shot down a Russian jet.

  1. Still waiting for the Russians to hold someone (i.e., themselves) accountable for the 1932-33 Holodomor, the “extermination by starvation” (i.e., genocide) of 10 million Ukrainian peasants by their Soviet overlords.
