(MENAFN- Trend News Agency)
BAKU, Azerbaijan, August 1. Candidate of
Technical Sciences, Honored Scientist and Engineer of Russian
Academy of Natural Sciences Gagik Ogandzhanyan has made a Facebook
post condemning the removal of a video of Armenian researcher
Philip Ekozyants, engaged in a dispute with Armenia's Doctor of
Historical Science Stepan Stepanyants, from Youtube, Trend reports.
Apparently, Ekozyants' answers haven't been welcomed by the
majority of Armenian people, and numerous complaints have been
filed about the videos of the well-known researcher.
“With great regret I must say I've recently witnessed the
shameful backing down from an intellectual dispute on the
'Persecution of Armenians in different empires – in their living
environment'. Of course, every doctor of historical sciences should
have its own established opinion on certain historical events and
realities, particularly related to the history of cohabiting ethnic
groups, including Armenians. However, this can hardly undermine the
research of relevant topics,' Ogandzhanyan wrote.
Further, Ogandzhanyan explains the essence of his indignation
'Philip Ekozyants is one of the rare researchers who is not
indifferent to the fate of his father and grandfather's people,
born in the Ottoman Empire, and tries to study Armenia's history
without relying on generally accepted dogmas. To be fair, majority
does not always like the facts cited by Ekozyants. But how could it
become the reason for complaints about Ekozyants' Youtube videos by
'I would not like Stepanyants to get involved in such an
'action'. However, 'Youtube' has started deleting Ekozyants' videos
on this very basis due to its 'policy'. Moreover, it's impossible
to find at least something close to obscene, rude, non-intellectual
vocabulary, disrespectful and offensive attitude towards
individuals and history itself in the researcher's videos
throughout these years,' the scientist added.
'Ekozyants is currently being accused of 'interethnic strife'
and other nonsense. Armenian experts and historians shifting away
from discussions, prove their inability to hold civilized
discussions. In my opinion, Stepanyants' open discussion with
Ekozyants can help to restore the researcher's reputation!
Otherwise, it would be quite regretful that today's Armenia still
might show the inappropriate attitude towards responsible
researchers like Ecozyants, who are not indifferent to the fate of
