Photo of the "pogroms of Armenians" in Baku was spread in one of the social media. Those who spread that photo assert that in the 90s maps were distributed in Baku where they were allegedly marked with places. They show the old maps as their proof. However, even a cursory acquaintance with the map allows us to state confidently that this is the result of photoshop, when the inscriptions about pogroms and other things were transferred to the map using a computer. The map is quite old with bends visible on it.

Stylized Soviet font inscriptions associated with pogroms are clearly visible. In some places, they fall on the bends and unevenness. It seems that they were imposed later. The question of what the map designates before falling into the hands of Armenian propagandists remains open.

There is little information on search for the primary source of the map. The earliest mention of the map dates back to 2013. Before, Armenian propagandists were busy creating other myths, and only by 2013 they had time for this map. It is true that they decided to limit themselves to the map and did not come up with a reasonable legend for it, explaining where this map came from. I think in the next few years they will understand that they have miscalculated, and yet they will come up with some interesting fairy tale about where this map comes from. Now they confine themselves to blocking the Azerbaijani access to all sites where this map is present, so that we do not interfere with their creation of myth.

"If you look at this map, it becomes clear that it is designed for people who are not familiar with Baku, did not see those events," the senior researcher at the Institute of Law and Human Rights of ANAS, the director of the Center for History of Caucasus, historian Rizvan Huseynov told Vzglyad.az, commenting on the issue with the map. 
"It seems on the map that the whole city was covered by ArmeFnian pogroms. They put marks in all the blocks, as if there were pogroms everywhere. Besides, the Armenian side still cannot define how many Armenians were killed in those events. They still do not have pictures of what happened. They use our photos of Azerbaijani victims who died at the hands of Armenian terrorists, including 
Khojaly, and distribute those photos as the victims of pogroms in Baku. After that, this map is a childish action compared to what they already did. This is another forgery and falsification in order to influence the public and overshadow the tragic events of January 20th, "the historian noted.

Falsification of historical facts is a common action for them and the recent map on social network is not first in this regard. One of the favorite proofs of the "antiquity" of Armenia is two maps of the Roman Empire on the wall of the Coliseum, which shows the territory of the Roman Empire and neighboring regions in the period from 146 BC. and until 14 AD, including Armenia.Even with a cursory glance, it is apparent that these are not ancient maps, but a modern layout where there is a modern outline of the continents that will be a copy of the photo taken from space. Obviously, the ancient Romans could not draw maps with such precision.

At the same time, no other than the so-called. There is no Peytinger table, and the existing Peytinger table is considered a copy of the Roman map of the IV century, the original of which is not preserved. There is no Armenia on this map but Albania. However, "Great Armenia" experienced its prosperity in the 4th century according to the Armenian historians. Where did Armenia come from on the map of the Roman Empire? The fact is that the European cartography was influenced by the Arab one in the Middle Ages. The Arabs did not use vowels during those period, so that the territory represented on the map was designated as RMN.However, this is not deciphered as Armenia, but as Romania (Romea, Rum) or, in modern terms, Byzantium. However, the Armenian lobby has distorted historical facts outrageously and achieved the fact that this territory began to be designated as Armenia, although it has nothing to do with Armenia.Based on those maps, they began to draw their own maps, noting there their most violent fantasies about "Great Armenia".

Armenian propaganda never stops their attempts including inthe creation of fake maps. Thus, a cartographer, Grigor Beglaryan, announced his "work" under the title "Atlas of Historical Armenia", in which he pointed out not many, not many, as many as 63 thousand toponyms of Armenian origin. Previously, this was not possible for all Armenian counterfeiters taken together, in their works there are not even a couple of hundred Armenian geographical names. He himself would be jealous of the father of the "Armenian historical lie" Movses Khorenatsi. However, he owned a time machine. Armenians consider him the author of the 5th century, while his works appeared only in the 17th-18th centuries


Returning to the map mentioned at the beginning of the article, I would like to remind the Armenian side that at that time Azerbaijan was helped by Armenians wishing to leave 
Baku and defended them. Ordinary Azerbaijanis helped Armenians and any witness of events of those times will tell about it. However, it is not profitable to recall it, it is much easier to show oneself as victims, justifying the terrible events on January 20, 1990, when a lot of people died in Baku. However, it is impossible to create endless falsifications, the truth will be prevailed in any case.
