Stalin’s 1949 Instructions on Anti-American Propaganda Again Being Followed in Russia, Mirovich Says

Paul Goble

Staunton, September 8 – On March 1, 1949, Joseph Stalin outlined how Soviet outlets were to carry out anti-American propaganda, instructions that were followed to the letter throughout the remainder of the Soviet period and that, except for a brief time in the early 1990s, are again being followed in Russia today, Maksim Mirovich says.

This propaganda, the Russian blogger says, arose and continues because the rulers of the Russian Federation like those of the USSR hated and hate the United States not just because of its military power but also because the US presents an alternative model of organization for a large and diverse country (kasparov.ru/material.php?id=5D74A2639E94F).

Kalimatov Calls on Ingush People to Ignore Boycott Calls and Vote in Municipal Elections

Paul Goble

Staunton, September 7 – Makhmud-Ali Kalimatov, acting head of Ingushetia, says the Ingush people must ignore calls for a boycott of municipal elections lest by not voting they reduce the sense of responsibility that deputies must always show to the population (ingushetia.ru/news/m_kalimatov_prizval_zhiteley_ingushetii_prinyat_aktivnoe_uchastie_v_munitsipalnykh_vyborakh_/).

Немаловажным вопросом в изучении военного искусства черкесов является вопрос об их артиллерии. С одной стороны, он позволяет глубоко понять недостатки адыгского военного дела и крайний предел ресурса его развития. С другой – он наглядно демонстрирует те перспективы, которые могли значительно повысить боевую мощь горцев. Именно этот вопрос ближе всех подводит к раскрытию причин поражения черкесов в Кавказской войне (1765-1864). Read more

New Zealand Spectator and Cook’s Strait Guardian, Volume XIX, Issue 1987, 17 August 1864, Page 4 (From The Times, May 9, 1864, p.11.)

Constantinople, April 28.

Official intimation has been received here of the capitulation or Vardar, the last stronghold of the Circassians, and of the consequent submission of all the tribes. I had occasion in a previous letter to refer to the flood of immigration which was pouring into the Turkish dominions from the Caucasus, and to the defeats which had been experienced by these gallant mountaineers; and although there could be no doubt at that time that the cause of the Circassians was hopeless, there was not sufficient ground for anticipating the extraordinary movement which has since developed itself, and which threatens, unless immediate relief and succour be obtained, to degenerate, as regards these poor people, into an awful disaster.
