New Attacks on Police in North Caucasus Less about ISIS and More about Protests Against the Kremlin, Analysts Say

Paul Goble

Staunton, Apr. 30 – Many have rushed to follow Moscow’s line and blame the recent attacks on police in the North Caucasus republics on a growth of the influence of Islamist radicalism and especially ISIS there. But two analysts say that in fact such attacks are a protest against Moscow and its policies.

Marat Ilyasov, a North Caucasian specialist now in the US, says that he is convinced that these attacks are in no way connected with the Islamic State. Instead, these attacks are the result of problems in the North Caucasus and Moscow’s failure to address them adequately (kavkazr.com/a/nazad-v-1990-e-ocherednoe-vooruzhennoe-napadenie-na-politseyskih-na-severnom-kavkaze-/32929271.html).

Two mountain women in full dress, 1858

Watercolour by William Simpson (1823-1899), 1858.

Circassian civilian women.

After resigning as Secretary of State for War upon the downfall of Lord Aberdeen’s government in January 1855, Henry Pelham Fiennes Pelham-Clinton, Fifth Duke of Newcastle (1811-1864), travelled to the Black Sea and the Crimea to see for himself the condition of the Army and the nature of the terrain. In the autumn of 1855 he journeyed to Circassia in the north-east Caucasus. During the latter trip he was accompanied by Simpson who sketched and painted many of the people and places the Duke visited.
