It is an event statement. This Saturday, April 24, 2021, Joe Biden officially recognized the Armenian genocide. For the first time in the country’s history, the US president recognized the massacre of 1.5 million Armenians by the Ottoman Empire, starting in 1915, as genocide. “Americans honor all Armenians who perished in the genocide that began 106 years ago today,” Joe Biden said in a statement. “We are affirming history. We are not doing this to overwhelm anyone but to make sure that what happened will never be repeated,” he added.
Joe Biden’s words went straight to Kim Kardashian’s heart. The Armenian-born influencer shared a long message on her social media, thanking the President: “After more than a century of struggle for truth and recognition, the Armenian people have today received the recognition that we had all hoped for and prayed for. President Biden declared the massacre of 1.5 million Armenians in 1915 a genocide, “the reality star wrote, both on Twitter and Instagram.
Kim Kardashian “grateful to President Biden”
The 40-year-old mother added that she was “so proud of [her] heritage, proud of the Armenian communities and grateful to President Biden for granting every Armenian this day, and this truth.” Although strongly contested by Turkey, the Armenian genocide is recognized by more than 20 countries and by many historians. Kim Kardashian has always proudly proclaimed her Armenian origins and is committed to the country of her ancestors. In October 2020, she donated $ 1 million to an aid fund for victims affected by the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan. In October 2019, the influencer traveled to Armenia, and took the opportunity to baptize three of her children.
