Kochesokov, the Golunov of the North Caucasus, Facing Ten Years Behind Bars

Paul Goble

            Staunton, July 28 – Martin Kochesokov, the Circassian activist who was arrested on the same day as Moscow journalist Ivan Golunov now faces up to ten years in prison because the authorities planted drugs on him just as they did on Golunov but the powers that be do not face the united opposition of his colleagues that forced them to drop charges and release Golunov.

            In an interview yesterday, Kochesokov says that his tragedy and that of the Circassians is that Russian officials appointed by Moscow to run their affairs have gotten used to the idea that they can do anything they want, including make people simply disappear; and they are less responsive than officials in Moscow (meduza.io/feature/2020/07/27/esli-ne-sbavlyu-aktivnost-menya-voobsche-ne-naydut).

For Russia Now, There are Two North Caucasuses Not One

Paul Goble

            Staunton, September 20 – Many Russians as well as outside observers routinely speak of the North Caucasus as if it were a unified whole when in fact there is a deep divide between its eastern portion which was Islamicized far earlier and remains more Islamic to this day and the western part which has had a different history.

            Indeed, one is almost justified in speaking of two North Caucasuses not one at least in terms of the Russian presence and control and of the nature of national movements and challenges to Moscow. Read more
