Moscow has Given Refugee Status to Only Two Syrian Circassians of 3,000 Who’ve Applied

Paul Goble

Staunton, June 26 – Despite its role in the Syrian conflict, Moscow has granted refugee status to only two Circassians from Syria of the roughly 3,000 who’ve applied for that status, Alisa Shishkina says, the result of Russian fears that such people are or will become Islamist radicals or that they will disturb the shaky ethnic balance in the North Caucasus.

Paul Goble
