The Elder of prichernomorskikh circassian, Ruslan Gvashev, approached the meeting with a small speech, where he spoke of the events in the field and called on the people who died to defend their homeland.

The Cossacks and the priest have agreed that the commemoration of the dead soldiers on this day will be a devout tradition of the staromarʹyevskogo cossack society.
In the second case, there is also no notification – nor is there any indication that the participants in the event are punished.
Tatiana Nikolayevna. We ask you to look into this situation. We do not call to punish the cossacks of the village of fazannyy for a memorial service in memory of their ancestors We consider the inalienable right of every person to honor the memory of their dead. We ask you to answer the question – why are ruslan gvashev and aidamir basto punished? Has it become the official norm in the Russian Federation to treat people differently from different nationalities, different faiths and different faiths?
