Circassians Among Most Repressed Peoples of Soviet Peoples, Documents Show

Paul Goble

            Staunton, April 21 – In a review of a new book on political repression of the Circassians in the first decades of Soviet power, M.N. Gubzhokov says that while Circassian elites shared the fate of many other peoples of the USSR, “they are largely absent from domestic historical studies that discuss political repression and ethnic cleansings.”

            The book in question is Political Repressions of Circassians in the North Caucasus (1918-1940) Archival Materials and Memoirs, compiled by A.K. Sharapova (in Russian, Nalchik, 2017, 824 pp.) The review, originally in the Vestnik of the Adygey Republic Institute for Research in the Humanities, is available at natpressru.info/index.php?newsid=11617).

Circassian National Movement Saved and Empowered by the Internet, Kabard Says

Circassian National Movement Saved and Empowered by the Internet, Kabard Says

Paul Goble

Staunton, April 17 – Moscow might have been able more or less indefinitely to continue its divide-and-rule strategy against the Circassian nation had it not been the Internet, a technology that allowed the members of a community Moscow had artificially divided up into various “nationalities” to come together as one, Andzor Kabard says.

The Kabard activist who lives in New York exile says that even with the upsurge of national feeling at the end of Soviet times, Moscow was keeping the Circassians divided. But it had not counted on the power of the Internet which the Circassians used to raise both their issue at the Sochi Olympics and their national consciousness (opendemocracy.net/en/odr/russia-calling-yourself-circassian-always-political).

Circassian Election Successes in Turkey Echo in North Caucasus Homeland

Paul Goble

            Staunton, April 6 – Ethnic Circassians won election to numerous city councils in Turkey, with at least one becoming mayor, a set of victories that Circassians in the North Caucasus homeland very much hope will allow Circassians there to lobby effectively on behalf of their co-nationals in both places.

            Circassians in the North Caucasus have always looked to the Circassian community in Turkey not only because it is larger, at least four times as big as the various Circassian nations have been divided into by Moscow in the North Caucasus, but also because it is freer to operate and express its views than those living in Russia.
