Marv Separated From Iran

By: Mir M.Hosseini


Russian army took the city of Marv and annexed it as the Russian territory. Russians had taken Bukhara and parts of the greater Khorasan before. Iran had sent two military units to help defend against the Russians but on their way, the two Qajar princes that leaded these units entered an argument after which one of them returned to Tehran thus the operation was cancelled. Marv historically was the cultural center of Persian language and literature. The public library of Marv used to be the greatest research source during medieval ages.
