Suvorov, along with Catherine the Great, participated in the inauguration of the Armenian Saint Catherine Church of St. Petersburg. Suvorov was also entrusted with the liberation of Armenia. He was also instrumental in settling 12,600 Crimean Armenians to Don in Ukraine. He subscribed to Shahamir Shahamirian’s “New Notebook” pamphlet. His son (Arkady Suvorov—1784-1811) and his grandson (Alexander Suvorov—1804-1882) were also famous generals. A total of ten descendants of Generalissimo Suvorov became generals in the Russian Army. The generalissimo had the distinction of never having been beaten in the battlefield.
