Скоро 21 Мая. Для черкесов – самый горький, самый тяжелый день. День памяти и скорби по погибшим в Кавказской войне.

В Сети появились ролики и плакаты, приуроченные к этому дню,  предлагающие в качестве символа черкесской трагедии, черкесского геноцида,  созревший одуванчик. Идея принадлежит черкесским активистам Турции. На плакате на черном фоне изображен одуванчик,  а ветер разносит пушинки с его белой головы, что по замыслу авторов символизирует черкесское рассеяние.

Moscow, North Caucasus Republics Making It Even Harder for Circassians from Syria to Immigrate

Moscow, North Caucasus Republics Making It Even Harder for Circassians from Syria to Immigrate

Paul Goble

Staunton, May 15 – Two weeks ago, Vladimir Putin signed a decree making it easier for Russian compatriots to enter Russia and become citizens; but that decree, like all earlier actions of the Kremlin leader, does not apply to Circassians in war-torn Syria because they were never Soviet or Russian citizens.

The Kremlin leader’s failure to modify the rules so that Circassians from Syria could be admitted in an expedited way comes despite numerous appeals from Circassians both in Syria and in the North Caucasus homeland.  But what is especially distressing is that the authorities in Russia are in fact making it more difficult for Circassians from Syria to enter and live in Russia.

10,000 Windows on Eurasia

Paul Goble

            Staunton, April 29 – This is the 10,000th Window on Eurasia in the new series I launched seven years ago after our house burned and I was diagnosed with leukemia. I did not expect to reach this milestone; in fact, I did not even expect to reach the number of roughly 5,000 WOEs I prepared in the first series between 2004 and 2011.

            But as I often say to myself, better preparing WOEs than feeling woes.– not an especially clever observation but one that is very much heartfelt. And I want to say thank you to all of you who have sent me comments, corrections, and suggestions.  I have learned an enormous amount from you. I only hope I have been able to return the favor.

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).
