The range of issues on which Moscow and the Circassian nation are in conflict is expanding, and the Russian government, along with its agents in the Circassian republics and regions of the North Caucasus, have stepped up their efforts to block Circassian demands. In response, the Circassians themselves are creating new organizations outside of Moscow’s control and appear ready to take steps to promote their national interests—even if these bring them into open conflict with the Russian government. That, in turn, suggests the several-year period of relative quiescence on the Circassian question may be coming to an end. Read more

Paul Goble

Staunton, Sept. 10 – Two new Circassian organizations set up last week in Kabardino-Balkaria plan to take up the cudgels for the defense of Circassian history, the survival and growth of the Circassian language, and the maintenance or even more the defense of Circassian place names across the North Caucasus.

The first of these is the Circassian (Adyg) Historical-Geographic Society, and the second is the Unified Circassian Media Space. They already show signs that they will invigorate Circassian activism generally and challenge Moscow (adygplus.blogspot.com/2021/09/new-circassian-historical-geographical.html and caucasustimes.com/ru/cherkesskoe-istoriko-geograficheskogo-obshhestvo-izuchit-gruzinskie-arhivy/).

In light of the unprecedented political exploitation of the Circassian Question and its repercussions, new data and ideas emerge from time to time to confuse the scene, from different sources, as if they say what they mean and mean what they say.

It is no longer surprising that lies accompanied by false and misleading information appear on the media and/or social media platforms that are published by sources that have, over the past years, been fooling the public in repeated attempts to erase and obliterate the Circassian memory. Unfortunately, these parties turn a blind eye to the demand for the restoration of the legitimate Circassian rights, which non of them should be excluded. Read more
