From the pen of our historians: a look at the 1918 genocide against Azerbaijanis
Firdovsiya Ahmadova: “The main reasons for the massacres committed in the areas of Azerbaijan in 1918 were: complete neutralization of the national movement, deprivation of its social base, that is, the de facto ethnic cleansing of the local population. In order to escalate the massacres, the Bolsheviks had to enter into an alliance with the Dashnaks and the Armenian National Council in order to ensure the superiority of their military forces. Armenians preferred the Bolshevik dictatorship to realize their intentions. Bolshevik-Dashnak cooperation resulted in the mass extermination of the peaceful Muslim population.
