May-June 1915.

In 1915, on May 27,  the young turk government ratified Taleat's May 22 bulletin and instructed the interior and military ministries to implement them. On the same day, Taleat issued the decree for the deportation and massacre of Armenians.

Days later, in 1914, they were slaughtered on the Tigranakert-Kharberd road section. 12,000 Armenian soldiers have been  working in construction camps since November. Already on June 3, the Armenians of Hachen were displaced.

On June 6 the deportation and massacre of Armenians of  Armenians took place. The caravans of Armenians that left Arabkir were shot down one by one on the Euphrates river, and thus at the end of July there were no more Armenians left in Arabkir.

On July 10, the Mush massacre began. Only 500 of the 15,000 Armenians and only 9,000 of the 59,000 Armenian population of the province

survived.

Already on July 15, MP Tahsi wrote in his letter to the center: "Antagonism towards Armenians in Karin area has crossed all borders.

The disgraces perpetrated on money and women are extremely shameful and against humanity. It is necessary to prevent it and, above all, to put an end to the Chets operating everywhere under the name of "Teshkilat Makhsuse". The governor of Kharberd writes that all the roads are full of corpses of women and children, and we don't find time to bury them. It would be good if we preserved our dignity and national image."
