Khachatur Maloumian

Khachatur Malumian, Aknuni (Aknouni or Agnouni) (1863, Meghri - 1915) was an Armenian journalist and political activist.

He studied at Geneva University, where he became one of the close friends of Christapor Mikaelian, contributing to his Droshak Journal. In 1907 in Vienna, he was delegated to the ARF IV Conference, then in Paris he organized the General Meeting of opposite Ottoman parties for the making of the future Ottoman Constitution. He welcomed the Young Turk movement and worked in Constantinople after 1914.

Even when the Young Turks ordered that the Armenian intellectuals be deported and killed, Aknuni stayed loyal to Talaat, saying, "It’s impossible! Talaat probably doesn’t know about it!"[1]

Malumian was a victim of the Armenian Genocide.
