Armyansk (Ukrainian: Армянськ, Russian: Армянск, Armenian: Արմյանսկ, Crimean Tatar: Ermeni Bazar) is a town of regional significance in northern Crimea, a territory recognized by a majority of international countries as part of Ukraine, but in reality under control and administration of Russia. Armyansk serves as the administrative center of Armyansk municipality, one of the regions Crimea is divided into. It is located on the Isthmus of Perekop. Population: 22,337 (2013 population estimate).
Armyansk was founded in the beginning of the 18th century by Armenians and Greeks, who had come from the nearby city of Or Qapı (modern Perekop). The first name of the town was Ermeni Bazar (Crimean Tatar for the "Armenian market").
On the 2 March 2014, early in the 2014 Crimean Crisis, a checkpoint was set up in Armyansk by Russian Naval Infantry units without cockades or rank insignia, checking cars driving in and out of the Crimea region.
