Moscow’s Push for Russification and Republics’ Inability to Resist Speeding Up Demise of Circassian and Other Non-Russian Languages, Khakuasheva Says

Paul Goble

            Staunton, August 14 – Moscow’s push for the assimilation of non-Russians under the guise that Russian can be the native language of these nations and the inability or unwillingness of republic leaders to fight back is accelerating the demise of Circassian and other non-Russian languages, Madina Khakuasheva says.

            In a 2500-word article expanding on a talk she gave in May, the senior researcher at the Kabardino-Balkar Institute for Research on the Humanities addresses this combined threat to the future of non-Russian languages in the Kabardino-Balkar Republic and more generally (zapravakbr.ru/index.php/analitik/1316-madina-khakuasheva-problema-rodnykh-yazykov-v-kbr).

Republics, Not Moscow, Can Decide Whether to Allow Circassians from Syria to Come to Russia, Foreign Ministry Disingenuously Says

Paul Goble

            Staunton, August 7 – After an article sharply criticized Moscow for not admitting more Circassians from Syria (windowoneurasia2.blogspot.com/2019/07/circassian-activist-denounces-moscow.html), the Regnum news agency asked the Russian Foreign Ministry for its reaction. The MFA said decisions about such admissions are the province of the republics, not Moscow.

            In yet another example of Moscow’s proclivity to shift responsibility but not resources to the regions and republics, the foreign ministry in a 600 word statement says that the republics and regions of Russia have the right to decide which applicants for admission to the country will be accepted under the compatriots program (regnum.ru/news/polit/2683485.html).

Эту информацию озвучил кто-то из редколлегии, кажется, зам. главного редактора Леонид Арамович Теракопян. Read more
