Lermontovo (Armenian: Լերմոնտովո); formerly known as Voskresenovka, is a village in the Lori Province of Armenia. Like its neighbor, Fioletovo, it was settled in the mid-1800s by Spiritual Christians from Russia (Pryguny, Molokane). The village is named after Russian poet Mikhail Lermontov, often called "the poet of the Caucasus".
