Paul Goble

            Staunton, February 19 – Circassian support for Aleksey Navalny reflects the attention his film about Putin’s palace in Gelendzhik, an historically Circassian location, and their sense that talking about those links will help increase the attention of Russians to the plight of their nation, Denis Sokolov, a Russian specialist on the Caucasus at CSIS, says.

            The open letter Circassians sent to Navalny has given them a chance to “remind the international community about the tragedy of the Circassians and to put this issue in the context of the advancement of democratic values, the struggle with corruption and crimes against the individual,” he continues (trtrussian.com/mnenie/stanet-li-navalnyj-subuektom-cherkesskoj-politiki-4488153).

            The commentator draws that conclusion on the basis of her conversations with Circassians who acknowledge that worries about the pandemic have overwhelmed all other concerns, including ethnic ones, and taken from the community important leaders (oc-media.org/ru/statyi/stal-li-cherkesskiy-vopros-eshchy-odnoy-zhertvoy-globalnoy-pandemii/).
