ORBELI'S MYSTERY UNEARTHED
has found a mine planted under the system of Armenian falsifications
When a department head at the Azerbaijani Presidential Administration, Fuad Axundov, said that he had found in the archives of St. Petersburg the book "Inscriptions and Gandzasar and Havotsptuk" by the Russian Soviet historian I. Orbeli, it caused great repercussions in the historical circles of our region. After all, it was a book, the entire edition of which was believed to have been destroyed in 1919, and the author of this work later stopped dealing with this subject and became a prominent scientist in a completely different field.
