Russian scientists, with the support of Russian foreign policy National Laboratory, published a report entitled "Lighting the general history of the peoples of Russia and former Soviet countries in school history textbooks of the newly independent states." In it they said they found a stunning, they said, the magnitude of the distortion of past events. In this part of the message, received from Moscow, it is not surprising, since textbooks are written by people, not machines, and therefore, nowhere these authors from their subjectivity does not escape. Historians in fact, like all people – citizens of their countries in a range of stereotypes, priorities, and a complex system of relationships from the heads of scientific institutes and state. This situation is not new. Soviet scientists have carried out orders of the Communist elite, and therefore the entire history of the world they looked like a continuous struggle for the hegemony of the proletariat.
The Azerbaijani khans warring with each other, had his own court chronicler, and I would not be surprised if it turns out that historians in Ganja 50s of the XVIII century blasphemed the last words of Azerbaijanis in Sheki, praising at the same time the king of Georgia. You see, in those years rulers of Nakhchivan, Karabakh and Ganja, Sheki Khan worried about the influence, together with the Georgian king, to fight with Khan Shaki Haji-Chalabi. I think it is quite natural and expected that Turkish historians today flatly denied the possibility of desecration of the Seljuk warriors Ecumenical Christian church, now known as the Hagia Sophia mosque.
