FAMILY AND RELATIONSHIPS
Simonyan’s ancestors, Crimean Armenians from Simferopol , were deported from Crimea, about which her grandfather wrote the book “The Truth to Grandchildren”. In April 2022, Margarita’s husband, Tigran Keosayan, turned to the Kazakhs, where he threatened them because they did not want to hold a parade on May 9 and use Soviet symbols. In November 2020, Keosayan made fun of Barack Obama. Simonyan “defended” her husband, commenting on the program for the Times that Tigran himself belongs to an ethnic minority, so he can use “blackface”. TheMoscowTimes named Keosayan and Simonyan as co-authors of this content.
