الشركس يستقبلون عام 2019 أكثر تماسكا وأكثر غضبا من موسكو

13 يناير/كانون الثاني 2019

            ستاونتون، 11 يناير/كانون الثاني  اتّسم قدوم العام الجديد بمراجعات عديدة حول هذه الوحدة الإقليمية أو تلك من الفيدرالية الروسية وليس بشأن أمم معينة. والاستثناء البهيج لهذا النمط هو تقييم لاريسا شركس (Larisa Cherkes) عن الشركس، وهي أمّة قامت موسكو  بتقسيمها داخل البلاد وسعت لعزلها عن الجالية الأكبر حجما ذات الأصول الإثنية المشتركة الواحدة في الخارج.

            وأفادت الصحفية في موقع حقائق الكفكاز (Kavkaz.Realii) أنه خلال العام الماضي، ”انشغلت الحركة الشركسية بالأحداث المرتبطة بالنزاعات حول اللغات الأصلية، وكذلك بالجهود التي تبذلها السلطات الحاكمة التي من شأنها إبعاد العائدين الشركس إلى الوطن بشكل ملفت“ وعرقلة وصول القادمين الجدد من الشتات الشركسي (https://www.kavkazr.com/a/cherkesskiyvopros-2018/29706138.html).

Circassians Enter 2019 More United and More Angry at Moscow

Paul Goble

            Staunton, January 11 – The turn of the year has featured numerous reviews about this or that territorial unit in the Russian Federation rather than about particular nations. A happy exception to that pattern is Larisa Cherkes’s assessment of the Circassians, a nation Moscow has divided within the country and sought to isolate from its larger co-ethnic community abroad.

            The Kavkazr journalist reports that over the past year, “the Circassian movement was occupied with events connected with conflicts about native languages and also with the efforts of the powers that be to demonstratively exile Circassian repatriants” and to block new arrivals form the Circassian diaspora (kavkazr.com/a/cherkesskiy-vopros-2018/29706138.html).

Cossacks Vastly More Diverse than Putin Regime Acknowledges

Paul Goble

Staunton, January 7 – Reflecting its general impulse to homogenize and control all aspects of life in Russia and relying on the ignorance of many in that country and elsewhere about Russian history and Russian realities, the Putin regime has been promoting an image of the Cossacks that is wildly at variance with the rich and diverse tapestry of their national life.

Deportation and Return of Vainakh Peoples Continue to Cast a Dark Shadow on the North Caucasus

Paul Goble

Staunton, January 9 – Sixty-two years ago today, Moscow allowed the Chechens and Ingush it had deported to Central Asia 13 years earlier, actions that continue to cast a dark shadow on the two Vainakh nations and their relationship with each other and with Moscow, Mairbek Vachagayev says.  Read more

Circassian Repatriants from Syria Ask Putin for Equal Treatment with Ukrainians in Russia

Paul Goble

            Staunton, December 29 – Because the Duma has given Vladimir Putin the power to offer accelerated Russian citizenship to immigrants, Circassians who have fled war-torn Syria to their historical homeland in the North Caucasus have called on the Kremlin leader to give them the same rights he has already given ethnic Ukrainians who have fled their war-torn country.
