In Cherkessk, the Circassians and Abaza today from the republics of KCR, Kabardey, Adygeya and Abkhazia have attended the funeral of Late Aslan Zhukov. After the burial ceremony in the cemetery the group of the Circassians and Abaza from all the republics walked to the Central Square in Cherkessk, in front of the government building to demonstrate their grief and disagreement with the Russian policies over the Circassian people, and the murder of one of the most active leaders.
The Demonstration had taken place in silence, because the people did not have any technical equipment and they were not prepared, it happened spontaneously. The protest did not last for long time; the Government authorities came out from the administration building and warned the protestors, that they have received strict orders from Moscow to calm down the situation using all available means. After that, Circassians decided to leave the square.
It was also announced by the Minister of Internal Affairs of KCR that additional military and OMON troops from neighboring regions will be brought into Karachaevo-Cherkessia to keep the situation under control.
