YEREVAN (ARMENPRESS)—A conference on genocides due to be held at an Armenian monastery complex in Moscow on October 23 will attract the attention of Russian scientific circles, deputy director of the Armenian Genocide Institute-Museum in Yerevan Suren Manukyan told Armenpress.

“The conference to be held in Moscow on October 23-24 [is even] more symbolic considering the title of the conference: ‘Genocide as a spiritual and moral crime against humanity.’ The conference has vital importance among international scientific events of 2015 for a number of reasons. First it will be held in Moscow which gives an opportunity to attract the attention of Russian scientific circles. Genocide science, unfortunately, is not well-developed in Russia yet as a sphere of science and we hope that this conference will change the situation to some extent. It is for us [a] top priority,” Manukyan said.

Manukyan added that the conference can boost Armenian Genocide examination in Russia and increase interest among Armenian youth in Moscow.

“Nearly 3 dozen prominent experts on Armenia and genocides from 15 countries, including current and the former presidents of [the] International Association of Genocide Scholars, Andrew Woolford and Alex Hinton, will participate in the conference,” Manukyan said.

The conference is being organized by the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute, the Armenian Apostolic monastery complex of Russia, and New Nakhijevan.
