Адвокат: будем бороться за реабилитацию Мартина Кочесоко

«В регионе выработался негласный подход к решению вопроса с подбросом наркотиков. Люди пытаются минимизировать проблему, советуют обвиняемому: соглашайся – обещают, что дадут условное… Выработана практика, способствующая произволу. Никто не верит в сопротивление», – рассказал «Газете Юга» старший партнер адвокатского бюро «Коблев и партнеры» Руслан Закалюжный, представляющий интересы Кочесоко. По его словам, защита намерена добиваться прекращения дела против Мартина. Read more

How Circassians are reclaiming their roots after 100 years of suppression

How Circassians are reclaiming their roots after 100 years of suppression

SALAHUDDIN MAZHARY

While this year marks the 155th anniversary of the Circassian genocide, there is a vibrant and growing cultural movement in historical Circassia and the diaspora.

A few days ahead of the 155th anniversary of the Circassian genocide on May 21, I arrived in Nalchik, the capital of the Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria, to meet Madina Saralp, a well-known fashion designer in the North Caucasus, who almost singlehandedly revived one of the remnants of Circassian folkloric heritage.

‘Regional Separatism Now Most Horrifying Threat for Moscow,’ Matveyev Says

‘Regional Separatism Now Most Horrifying Threat for Moscow,’ Matveyev Says

Paul Goble

Staunton, July 1 – Over the last six months, Pavel Matveyev says, not only has the worst not happened but there are signs of real improvement in the mentality of Russians, many of whom are shifting from being merely residents of Russia who accept whatever is done to them to being citizens who demand a say in what the authorities do.

This process is still in its infancy, the Moscow commentator says; and the powers that be will certainly try to strangle it in its cradle. But no one can deny it is occurring and increasingly becoming something the authorities cannot fail to take note of. It may even explain why some of the worst things haven’t happened (kasparov.ru/material.php?id=5D190E2400E12). Read more

Decade of Relative Stability in North Caucasus Coming to an End, Neroznikova Says

Paul Goble

Staunton, July 3 – The decade of relative stability in the North Caucasus, a period during which the authorities were not able to resolve “the basic problem of the region,” the clash between Islamic fundamentalism and a corrupt and lawless civil power, is rapidly coming to an end, according to Yekaterina Neroznikova, a journalist who has long worked in the region.

She tells Sovershenno Sekretno commentator Anton Krivenyuk that there are likely to be leadership changes in Daghestan and Chechnya as well as more corruption scandals and that these things will only exacerbate the underlying problems of a region that remains divided into “ethnic quarters” (sovsekretno.ru/articles/kto-mozhet-rabotat-toporom-/).

Flags Increasingly Important Symbols of Protest against Moscow and for What It Stands, Luzin Says

Flags Increasingly Important Symbols of Protest against Moscow and for What It Stands, Luzin Says

Paul Goble

Staunton, July 3 – Politics begins, as Carl Schmitt reminds, when someone identifies those against which one is fighting, Pavel Luzin says; and in that process of definition, visual symbols, like the flags and banners protesters use, are critically important as a natural development of opposition to the Kremlin.

As one flag displaces another or a new flag enters the scene, the regionalist writer argues, this process will be “a tectonic shift” in the country and “a symbolic act of separation by citizens from the Russian powers that be and from Moscow as such which up to now has imposed its symbols on people” (region.expert/flags/).

‘Nezygar’ Says Islamist Radicals have Penetrated Even Interior Ministry in KBR

Paul Goble

            Staunton, June 30 – In what Israeli analyst Avraham Shmulyevich says is part of Moscow’s effort to prepare the Russian population for a new war in the North Caucasus (facebook.com/groups/418134964913502/permalink/2379889652071347/), the Nezygar telegram channel says Islamist radicals have penetrated even KBR interior ministry.

            Moscow has been working overtime to provoke Circassians in that region into violence so that it will have the kind of justification that will allow it to move against them without much fear of criticism from the West or from Russian opposition groups. (On this, see windowoneurasia2.blogspot.com/2019/06/moscows-efforts-to-provoke-circassians.html). Read more
