Paul Goble

Staunton, August 1 – Circassian women are circulating a petition calling for the liberation of Zarifa Sautiyeva, the Ingush curator and activist now (aheku.net/news/society/cherkeshenki-organizovali-sbor-podpisej), and Circassian activists have held a roundtable to focus attention on the fate of Ingush activists being held in Nalchik detention facilities (fortanga.org/2019/08/v-kbr-trevozhatsya-soderzhaniyu-arestovannyh-ingushskih-aktivistov-v-nalchike/).

Russia’s New Aggression in Georgia

Russia’s New Aggression in Georgia

A series of interesting developments in Georgia points to a subtle but persistent attempt by Moscow to take complete control of that nation’s political processes.

The decision to allow Russian parliamentarian and defender of Abkhazia and South Ossetia’s independence to sit in the Speaker of Parliament’s chair on July 20 enraged much of the population and triggered protests that were aggressively confronted by Georgian security forces, creating the surreal picture of Georgian militiamen defending a representative of an occupying force from their own citizens. The picture became clearer when Russian President Vladimir Putin, citing russophobia in Georgia, announced a suspension of flights to Tbilisi, however.

Circassian Activist Denounces Moscow for ‘Discriminating Against Compatriots on Ethnic Lines’

Paul Goble

            Staunton, July 29 – In advance of the Day of the Repatriant in the Adygey Republic on August 1, Circassian activist Asker Sokht has condemned Moscow for double standards on immigration and argued that discriminating against potential immigrations on ethnic lines does not contribute to a positive image of Russia in the world.

            His toughly-worded article appears on the Regnum news agency portal, a place which most often reflects Russian nationalist views rather than the defense of non-Russian peoples in general or the nations of the North Caucasus in particular. For that reason if no other, it deserves attention (regnum.ru/news/polit/2675065.html). Read more

Russian Provocation in North and South Caucasus

Russian Provocation in North and South Caucasus

It’s already been noted elsewhere that Moscow’s bogus drug charges against Circassian activists such as Martin Kochesoko are most likely attempts to provoke a violent reaction from the Circassians, which would “justify” a Russian military response.

I’m actually somewhat surprised with the apparent threat that Moscow perceives from the Circassians. When I wrote my article, “The Circassian Factor in Russian-Middle East Relations” I wondered if I was overstating the effect the Syrian Circassians are having on Moscow and the growing repatriation movement. But these completely unprovoked attacks on Circassian activists do seem to confirm my suspicions (although planting drugs on activists throughout the Caucasus seems to be the modus operandi of Russian security forces these days, so there’s that).
