The massacre of the Armenian population by the Ottoman Empire, the current Turkey, during the First World War is called the Armenian Genocide.
The first international reaction to violence was expressed in a joint statement by Russia, France and the United Kingdom in May 1915, where atrocities against the Armenian people were defined as “new crimes against humanity and civilization”. The parties agreed that the Turkish government should be punished for committing a crime.
More than 1.5 million people became victims of the Armenian Genocide.
