From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Vasili Lvovich Velichko (Russian: Васи́лий Льво́вич Вели́чко, 1860 — December 31, 1903 Saint Petersburg) was a Russian nationalist, journalist, and editor of the semi-official Armenophobe[1] Kavkaz gazette.

Known as a Russian chauvinist[2], he demonstrated blatant intolerance to the Armenians[3][4] and tried to set them on other populations in the Caucasus. He was active during the period when the imperial Russian authorities carried out a purposeful anti-Armenian policy.

According to the Russian historian V. Shnirelman, "it is curious that his works were re-published in Azerbaijan in the early 1990s and received wide popularity there".[5] Velichko's "forgotten racist tract" was reissued by Ziya Bunyadov's academy[6].
