HistoryEdit

At the beginning of the 18th century Armenians and Greeks who had come from the nearby city of Or Qapı (present-day Perekop) founded Armiansk. The first name of the town was Ermeni Bazar (Crimean Tatar for the "Armenian market"). In 1921 it was renamed Armiansk.

On 2 March 2014, early in the 2014 Crimean Crisis, Russian Naval Infantry units without cockades or rank insignia set up a checkpoint in Armiansk to check cars driving in and out of the Crimea region.[2]

 
The Soviet monument of a T-34 in the city commemorates the liberation from Nazi occupation.
