    The Wall Street Journal ran an advertisement campaign for a Turkish group that denies last century's Armenian genocide by the Ottoman Empire.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A full-page ad, published in WSJ on Wednesday, featured the words "Truth=Peace" and three hands in national Turkish, Armenian and Russian colors. The Turkish hand held up a peace sign whereas the other two had their fingers crossed.

    ​The ad contained a reference to a website of Fact Check Armenia, a group that describes the murder of some 1.5 million ethnic Armenians by Ottoman Turks as Armenian "propaganda." The website also argues that those massacred were collectively guilty of being "treacherous to the land."

    The Armenian genocide was a series of mass killings and starvation ordered by the Ottoman government during and after World War I. Ankara refuses to recognize the massacre as genocide, claiming that Turkish nationals were also victimized.
