MOSCOW (Mediamax) — Deputies of the State Duma proposed to cancel Moscow Treaty on friendship and brotherhood, which was signed between the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (RSFSR) and the Government of the Turkish Grand National Assembly in March 16, 1921.

According to Russian Izvestia newspaper, this initiative was made by vice president of the Central Committee of the Russian Communist Party Valery Rashkin, Russian Communist Party Secretary Sergei Obukhov who sent the appropriate petitions to the Russian President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

The Russian Communists mark Turkey’s continuous aggression against Russia in the letters addressed to the Russian government.

“We think that now, with the Turkish aggression increase, we need to consider the legal aspect of Russian-Turkish agreements that are not profitable for our country and the country’s allies. Ankara should understand the results escalation of the conflict might bring. Only this can sober Turkey up and prevent new provocations”, stated Sergei Obukhov.

“Fair Russia” party also supports the Russian Communists initiative.

The first article of the treaty on friendship and brotherhood between Turkey and Russia in Moscow signed on March 16, 1921 states that Russia Soviet government agrees not to recognize any international treaties relating to and not accepted by the Grand National Assembly of Turkey. This provision was directed primarily against the Treaty of Sevres, which Turkey wanted to cancel at any cost.

The new border was recognized by the Treaty of Kars signed between Turkey and the Transcaucasian republics (13 October 1921), which remains in effect until now.

Under the Moscow Treaty, Nakhichevan became an autonomous territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan and Nagorno Karabakh was declared an autonomous region within Azerbaijan under July 5(1921) decision of the Caucasus Bureau (RK(b)P).
