This extremely rare Armenian Communist magazine Աշկատանկ (Ashkatank / Labour), issued on April 10, 1927, features articles on the Communist officials and labour movement, both accompanied with illustrations, photographs and photomontages. The caricatures on the last pages include political motives and anti-church propaganda.
On March 4, 1922, Amrenia was annexed by Bolshevist Russia and was incorporated with Georgia and Azerbaijan, into the Soviet Union as part of the Transcaucasian SFSR (TSFSR).
We could not find many information on the Ashkatank magazine. An Armenian Communist newspaper with same name was printed during WWI in Van, Turkey (Yektan Turkyilmaz, Rethinking Genocide: Violence and Victimhood in Eastern Anatolia, 1913-1915, 2011, p. 57).
This number was printed in 2500 examples in Yerevan, Armenia, as noted in the imprint.
