Circassians Denounce Putin’s Palace, Praise Navalny’s Exposure of It in Open Letter

Paul Goble

Staunton, January 30 – Non-Russians are often criticized for focusing on their own ethnic issues and not participating in broader political movements involving the all-Russian opposition. But in a happy exception, Circassians from the North Caucasus and the diaspora have sent an open letter to Aleksey Navalny denouncing “the Putin palace” the Russian activist has exposed.

“The Putin palace,” the letter notes, “is located on Cape Idokubas on the shore of the Black Sea not far from Gelendzhik, on the motherland of the Circassians. It, just like the Olympic objects in Sochi, was erected on the territorial of the Caucasus reserve” (justicefornorthcaucasus.info/?p=1251682941 and doshdu.com/cherkesskie-aktivisty-zajavili-chto-dvorec-putina-byl-postroen-nezakonno/).

Kadir Natho, who Introduced Circassian Nation to Its Diaspora and the World, Dies at 93

Paul Goble

            Staunton, January 8 – Writers and novelists always play a key role in national movements, explaining to the members of their nations why they are important and why the protection of their community and the advancement of its goals are so important if the nation is to survive.

            But few play a more important role in that regard than those who do these things both for the diasporas in which they find themselves and whose members are always at risk of falling away from the nation and for the rest of the world which often knows little about their nation, its past greatness, its current travails, and its future plans.

Moscow’s Misrepresentations about Colonial War in Caucasus Set the Stage for New Violence, Khakuasheva Says

Moscow’s Misrepresentations about Colonial War in Caucasus Set the Stage for New Violence, Khakuasheva Says

Paul Goble

Staunton, December 11 – George Santayana’s observation that those who forget the past are condemned to relive it is taking on new urgency in the Russian Federation where the lies some Russian leaders and media figures are telling about the tsarist colonial wars in the Caucasus are setting the stage for new violence, Madina Khakuasheva says.

The senior scholar at the Kabardino-Balkar Institute for Research on the Humanities argues that the increasing insistence by such Russians that the Circassians and other peoples of the region were exclusively to blame for Russian losses during the tsarist colonial advance rather than the regime that dispatched troops is backfiring (natpressru.info/index.php?newsid=12233).

Сколько можно врать о черкесах? По мотивам онлайн-дискуссии на КУ 26.11.2020

Скандальная ситуация А. Лебедева непосредственно связана с установкой памятника, который назывался «Монумент подвигу русских солдат». Ей предшествовала долгая непростая преамбула, так что незначительная фигура Артемия Лебедева – лишь крайнее звено в необозримо длинной цепи… Он лишь «грубо и зримо» перевел «тайное» в разряд «явного».
