Ashot Nersisyan – The first stage of negotiations of the RA Bureau–government and Soviet Russia. – The article subjects to critical analysis the negotiations of the de­le­-ga­tion headed by Shant of the Bureau–Government of the First Republic of Armenia with Soviet Russia in Moscow, which initiated the establishment of political relations bet­ween the Republic of Armenia and Soviet Russia. The author tries to prove that Rus­sia’s positions on the issue of ownership of territories of Karabakh, Zangezur and Na­khi­che­van, as well as of the Western Armenia were not yet clear in June – July, 1920. Be­fore signing the Treaty of Sevres Russia led policy of maneuvering on the issue of giving the mentioned territories to Turkey and Azerbaijan, and then toughened its positions to­wards Armenia that had not refused its Allies. Armenian political leaders in their turn showed no diplomatic flexibility and took the wrong way at a crucial stage of forming the alliance of the Bolshevik with the Kemalist in June-July 1920.
