The European Parliament on Oct. 5 held a hearing on the Circassian problems. On the party told the hearing, the head of the Kabardino-Balkaria Human Rights Center Valery Khatazhukov.
According Hatazhukova, hearing "Circassian Day in European Parliament" held for the fourth time. The initiative belongs to the European Federation of the Circassian community organizations - khas. The purpose of the hearings - discussion of the Circassian issue. This year, at a hearing attended by about 250 people representing the Circassian diaspora in Europe and Turkey. The event was also attended by several MEPs.
Valery Khatazhukov said that in his speech at the hearing, he raised the issue of ethnic consolidation, noting that "Adygeys", "Circassian" and "Kabardians" - single people, and it recognizes the academic science. Some even put the question of uniting them into a single entity RF. According Hatazhukova, such integration should take place as a result of the referendum. However, in situations where the Circassians in Adygea 20%, in KChR 10%, the result of the referendum can be accurately predicted.
"My opinion is - no administrative boundaries should not be changed. It has the potential - to bring together economically, culturally, so that not only did not infringe on neighboring nations, but it was advantageous to them. Maybe unify the alphabet, to adopt a single standard language, to coordinate research research ", - said Khatazhukov. The second question that was addressed by the head of the Human Rights Center - the issue of language survival. About how badly it's worth, says the fact that out of 250 representatives of Circassian diaspora, attended the hearing, only one-third owned by a different degree of native language.
"The problem of preservation of the language can only be solved at home. But here is not so simple. Disturbing fact that of the Russian educational programs eliminated the national-regional component. As a result, over the past ten years by 25-30% decreased the time available the study the native language in schools, Kabardino-Balkaria. also decreased the number issued in the native language of books "- sorry Khatazhukov. According Hatazhukova, he also raised the issue of recognizing Abkhazia's independence: "I stressed that we support recognition of independence. But for us, important not the fact of recognition, but the fact that it excludes the resumption of hostilities. Also said that we, the small nations, frustrating the policy of double standards. "
Speaking about the problems of repatriation, Khatazhukov as a major problem highlighted the problem of obtaining Russia's fellow citizenship, in view of the fact that under the Nationality Act, anyone who wants to live in Russia should own the Russian language as foreign Adygs they do not know.
"Circassian language in the subjects of the federation are public. Should be legally recognized as sufficient for obtaining citizenship of Russia's own compatriots of these languages" - sure Khatazhukov.
According Hatazhukova, the hearing was also made Adyghe diaspora in Turkey, who also spoke about the problems of preserving the native language. The word was taken and the other participants in the hearings.
