The Sochi Olympics of 2014
will be the 150th commemorative year of the Circassian Genocide.
Choosing Sochi as the site of the Winter Olympics, in such an auspicious year
for the Russians, represents the perpetual celebration of Imperial Russia’s
oppression and systematic murder of the Circassian People. Building the Olympic
Village over the mass graves of the victims symbolizes the virtual erasing of
Krasnaya Polyana (dubbed “The Red Hill” by the Russian
troops for the quantity of Circassian blood spilled there) is the area that will be the center of
the 2014 Olympic Games and the place where, on May 21, 1864, Russian
troops celebrated the end of the war with Circassians.
the Circassian capital and land of the genocide, is the historical site of
the nation’s exile of over 1,000,000 Circassians.
