Efforts by Moscow and Ankara to Exploit Circassians Make Role of Circassians Elsewhere More Critical, Ozdemir Says

Paul Goble

Staunton, October 21 – Cem Ozdemir, a Circassian who serves as a Green deputy in the German parliament, says Moscow and Ankara have adopted such an instrumental approach to the Circassians, with each using that nation for its own purposes, that the role of Circassians in other countries in ensuring the survival of that people is more critical.

The Russian and Turkish government, albeit for very different reasons, have sought to reduce the Circassians to an ethnographic curiosity, one where its members celebrate their traditional dances and marriage ceremonies but give up their language and collective identity (oezdemir.de/2020/10/13/interview-mein-vater-war-ein-tscherkesse; in Russian at justicefornorthcaucasus.info/?p=1251682700).

            ستاونتون، 12 أكتوبر/تشرين الأولفي العقود الأخيرة، ظهرت سلسلة من الدراسات حول التاريخ المعقد والوضع الحالي للشركس، سواء أولئك الذين بقوا في الوطن أو أولئك الذين يعيشون في الخارج لأن أسلافهم طردوا من الإمبراطورية الروسية منذ 150 عامًا.

            يلفت الشركس مزيدًا من الإنتباه حيث سمح الإنترنت لأولئك الموجودين في الوطن ومن هم في الخارج بدعم بعضهم البعض، وبما أن هذا النشاط المتزايد قد تحدى سيطرة موسكو على المنطقة من خلال تقويض الهندسة العرقية للمركز وعن طريق لفت الانتباه إلى الانتهاكات التي تركت بصماتها على الشركس وغيرهم.

Circassians and Their Fate – a Brief but Fundamental Introduction

Circassians and Their Fate – a Brief but Fundamental Introduction

Paul Goble

Staunton, October 12 – In recent decades, there have appeared a series of studies of the complex history and present situation of the Circassians, both those who remain in the homeland and those who live abroad because their ancestors were expelled from the Russian Empire 150 years ago.

The Circassians are attracting ever more attention as the Internet has allowed those in the homeland and those abroad to reinforce one another and as this increasing activism has challenged Moscow’s control of a region by undermining the center’s ethnic engineering and by calling attention to the abuses it has visited on the Circassians and others.

A Closer Look At Circassia

A Closer Look At Circassia

Abstract

The passage of time has not and will not lead to the loss of the Circassian Question of its momentum and importance in various aspects. While the elements that have affected the composition and shaping of the scene since the early historical ages and the history of the formation of one of the indigenous human entities in their Caucasus cradle of Civilization still exist.

The development of the nation as part of the human fabric in such a strategic area with great importance has been marred by many negative influences and interruptions as a result of the difficult status and conditions imposed by colonial ambitions that wanted to finish off and sparse this nation outside its homeland.

The passage of more than a century and a half since the deportation of the vast majority of the nation and the distribution of the rest of them in several tiny, divided parts and administrative areas of their historical homeland, is still the status and fate of this nation that needs to be able to restore its legitimate rights.

Circassian Means ‘Warrior,’ Popular Russian Website Says

Paul Goble

             Staunton, September 6 – The Circassians are “the most fearless people of the Caucasus,” Yandex’s Etnogeo portal says.  In fact, their own self-designator, Adyg, means “warrior.” And the North Caucasus has “always” been their homeland since at least paleolithic times, centuries earlier than other nations.

            This is interesting not because it is news to anyone who knows anything about the remarkable history of the Circassian people but rather because it is being proclaimed by a website directed at Russian internet users who have often been offered a very different picture (zen.yandex.ru/media/etnogeo/cherkesy–samyi-besstrashnyi-narod-kavkaza-est-fakty-5f5446bd019fb065e725d711).
