            ستاونتون، 22 يونيو / حزيران أثار انتهاء مجلس الدوما الروسي من تمرير مشروع الكرملين المتعلق بقانون اللغة بالقراءة الأولى بنجاح الذي من شأنه أن يجعل دراسة جميع اللغات في روسيا، باستثناء اللغة الروسية طوعياً بواقع 373 صوتًا مقابل 3 أصوات مع امتناع واحد عن التصويت، غضبًا في الجمهوريات غير الروسية بشكل عام والأخرى الشركسية على وجه الخصوص باعتباره حالة مذهلة ”للسياسة الإمبريالية البحتة“ للمركز.

Circassians Denounce Kremlin’s Language Bill as ‘Purely Imperial Policy’

Paul Goble

Staunton, June 22 – The Duma’s passage on first reading of the Kremlin’s language bill that would make the study of all languages in Russia except Russian purely voluntary by a vote of 373 to 3 with one abstention has sparked outrage in the non-Russian republics generally and the Circassian  ones in particular as an appalling case of the center’s “purely imperial policy.” Read more

Putin’s Language Law Seen Hastening Demise of Circassian Language, Radicalizing Population

Paul Goble

            Staunton, June 6 – Specialists on the North Caucasus, Madina Khakuasheva says, say that the Circassian language is likely to die out in the region in less than 50 years and that the new legislation that will result in reducing the number of young people studying it will only accelerate that process.

            The Circassian philologist at the Kabardino-Balkaria Institute of Research on the Humanities, tells Gor Aleksanyan of the Kavkaz-Uzel portal that the approaching death of the language will also lead to assimilation of those who used to speak it and thus threaten the survival of the nation itself (kavkaz-uzel.eu/articles/321345/).

This year as every year for more than a century, the nearly 500,000 Circassians in their North Caucasus homeland and the more than five million Circassians in the diaspora paused, on May 21, to remember the losses they suffered during their 101-year-long resistance to Russian imperial expansion and their forcible expulsion from their homeland in 1864. Indeed, according to Zaurbek Kozhev of the Kabardino-Balkar Institute of Humanitarian Research, this memorial day is “an inalienable part of contemporary Circassian identity” and thus the basis for the mobilization of the community to pursue its collective goals, a point other speakers at memorial meetings made as well (Kavkazsky Uzel, May 23).
