As we share our brethren in the Republic of Adygea their joy while they are commemorating the founding of the republic that we consider so dear to us, we will not forget those early founders, who adopted the current model of Circassian flag on the 23rd of March, 1992. That was despite the great and numerous challenges they faced. It is the original form of the flag that the Adygha people have used in the nineteenth century when they defended their Circassian homeland against the invasion of the Tsarist Russian Empire.

Several days ago (September 22), the Russian Ministry of Interior’s regional office in Kabardino-Balkaria—one of the North Caucasus republics to which Circassians in the Middle East want to return—turned to a Telegram channel to declare that it is seeking to “effectively realize” a new program intended to repatriate members of this nation from Syria and other countries “to the maximum extent possible.” The message went on to insist that any holdups would be a reflection not of Moscow’s policies and intentions but rather of the decisions of the republic governments in the North Caucasus, which it implied need to do more, and of the actions of foreign governments and foundations committed to discrediting and otherwise undermining this positive Russian government effort (Facebook.com, accessed September 24; Natpressru.info, September 22).

АРТИЛЛЕРИЯ ЧЕРКЕСОВ В КАВКАЗСКОЙ ВОЙНЕ (1765-1864)

АРТИЛЛЕРИЯ ЧЕРКЕСОВ В КАВКАЗСКОЙ ВОЙНЕ (1765-1864)

Немаловажным вопросом в изучении военного искусства черкесов является вопрос об их артиллерии. С одной стороны, он позволяет глубоко понять недостатки адыгского военного дела и крайний предел ресурса его развития. С другой – он наглядно демонстрирует те перспективы, которые могли значительно повысить боевую мощь горцев. Именно этот вопрос ближе всех подводит к раскрытию причин поражения черкесов в Кавказской войне (1765-1864). Read more

Constantinople, April 28.

Official intimation has been received here of the capitulation or Vardar, the last stronghold of the Circassians, and of the consequent submission of all the tribes. I had occasion in a previous letter to refer to the flood of immigration which was pouring into the Turkish dominions from the Caucasus, and to the defeats which had been experienced by these gallant mountaineers; and although there could be no doubt at that time that the cause of the Circassians was hopeless, there was not sufficient ground for anticipating the extraordinary movement which has since developed itself, and which threatens, unless immediate relief and succour be obtained, to degenerate, as regards these poor people, into an awful disaster.

المطالبة بالاعتراف بشركيسيا كدولة تحتلها روسيا

شركيسيا التي كانت متطورة ومزدهرة في الماضي ولتي أعطت للعالم ثقافات مايكوب (Maikop) ودولمن (dolmen)، والملاحم النارتية الأسطورية (Nart Sagas)، أصبحت نموذجًا أصيلا للعديد من الأساطير اليونانية القديمة. إن شركيسيا التي الهمت من ذاتها الكثير من الأساطير المنتشرة في جميع أنحاء العالم، هي التي احتُلَّت كليًا في نهاية المطاف في 21 مايو/أيار 1864 بعد ما يقرب مائة وخمسين عامًا من المقاومة البطولية لقوات الاحتلال الروسية والنضال من أجل الاستقلال والسلامة الإقليمية. لقد تم تدميرها والقضاء عليها كدولة، وتم ضم جميع الأراضي الشركسية الوطنية وتم توطين السكان فيها على نطاق واسع من قبل الغزاة الروس.
