Circassians Only One of Many Muslim ‘Compatriot’ Communities Moscow Doesn’t Want to Return

Paul Goble

            Staunton, June 16 – Russian law specifies that those living abroad whose ancestors came from the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union or the Russian Federation, the so-called “compatriots,”  have the right of return and are to get Russian citizenship on an expedited basis, but in fact, the Putin regime wants only the Slavic, the young and the well-educated.

            For those who aren’t in those categories, who aren’t Slavic and Russian speaking, who aren’t young, and who aren’t well-educated and thus capable of making a contribution to the Russian economy, Moscow is anything but welcoming, human rights activists like Svetlana Gannushkina of Civic Support say (idelreal.org/a/29928574.html).

Orhan Bersiequ, a Ubykh Circassian patriot and activist who returned to his homeland from the Circassian diaspora in Jordan. Regrettably, his joy of returning to the place where his ancestors were deported from has not complete due to the policy of discouraging repatriation.

He was a member of free Circassian youth who was making videos about the Caucasus and motivating Circassians to go back to their homeland. Orhan is a highly educated patriot who lived in Nalchik, the capital city of the Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria for 9 years.

One day, when he was living in Nalchik, he was leaving his home to the supermarket, but suddenly he was stopped and caught by agents of the Russian law enforcement agencies. A person by the name of Timor Midov, who works for the Federal Drug Control Service of the Russian Federation submitted a report stating that he found drugs on Orhan. Other reports were included, as two Federal Security Services (FSB) agents, who are Ahmad Khawaj and Abdulrazak Naghwai, wrote and submitted reports about Orhan’s patriotic activities in Kabardino-Balkaria and translated his Arabic language articles to Russian in order to present to the FSB.

Russian Authorities Apply Same Tactics against Circassians They’re Using against Golunov

Paul Goble

            Staunton, June 8 – Sometimes Russian repression against one individual distracts attention from similar acts of repression against other individuals and groups. Sometimes it has just the opposite effect and ensures that the latter gain the kind of attention they might not otherwise get.

            But what is especially important in either case is to connect the dots, to see how what Moscow is doing in one place informs or even defines what it is doing in another, lest some commentators by focusing on only one side minimize the threat or open the way for the Kremlin to win points by making concessions in one case but not in any others.

            Almost the entire Russian opposition and many in the West have been outraged by the arrest of Moscow investigative journalist Ivan Golunov and the way in which the powers that be have planted drugs on him so as to be able to discredit him in the eyes of Kremlin supporters and to bring more serious charges against the journalist.
