To the President of the Russian "International
Circassian Association” ICA
This letter is meant to be sent through Internet to the
President of the International Circassian Association (ICA) who is guarding the
Russian hostage that was hijacked by the Russian backed KGB/FSB employees who
took over the leadership and administration of the association, and even
changed its principles and the goals and objectives for which it was founded in
the early 1990’s.
The truth should be known by Circassians and all those
who are interested to know the hidden information that was intended to be concealed,
in regard to the election of the President of the so-called International
Circassian Association, Kanshobi Azhakhov, who was elected in a way that
the representatives and attendees of the 8th ICA session that was
meant to be held to elect (witness the appointment) of a president, and to
re-appoint members to the council of the association.
is not secret anymore that the setting and organization of the meeting or
conference as it was described by others, with selecting the committees and
mechanism of the election was not and it is are not yet clear or understood by
those who attended (witnesses who saw nothing), with confidentiality of
different places for meetings and side plots that was tens of kilo-meters apart
as some reporters had indicated, to implement the sitcom in order to come up
with results prepared in advance about the person who was not known by anybody,
to lead and guide the helm of the ICA to suit the policies of the Russian
To serve the
real national aspirations of the Circassian nation, a real national agenda that
depend on the Circassian identity is required to tackle all the factors and aspects
that national and cultural interests are part of, that would assist in solving
the problems that were created by the Russian occupying forces more that 145
the President of the ICA has forgotten that the ICA itself is a dead body as of
a real Circassian entity is concerned and it had diverted its path and
objectives contrary to the objectives they were originally intended to be. By
transferring and moving its headquarters to Nalchik, and at the same time the
KGB/FSB staff had taken and assumed overall control on all of its operations in
a Soviet style, which showed its real ugly face during the ICA 8th
session’s elections held in an atmosphere of mistrust and terror.
of expressing the need for Circassian national reconciliation and holding
meetings, conferences, forums, and gatherings to raise the Circassian question
to where it suppose to be, it seems that the ICA and its staff’s main task followed
is to consolidate the Russian plans and tactics which deepen the roots of the
reality that Russians are trying to create on the soil of Circassians. The association
had failed to direct positive potential towards useful matters!
Circassian associations should organize and hold conferences such as Tbilisi
Conference that was held recently and was attended by representatives from 15
different countries in a Caucasian host center, in Tbilisi, Georgia, which
included more than 22 Circassians who came from the occupied homeland and Diaspora
countries! The Tbilisi Conference turned out to be the most important
conference about Circassian and Caucasian issues that had been held in recent
years, where experts, academicians, and concerned had joined to meet in the
Caucasian country of Georgia for a meaningful meeting that Caucasians from
different nations have not been able to have on the soil of their homeland in
the occupied parts of the Caucasus for long time.
must not overlook the role of other conferences held in Diaspora about the
Circassians’ affairs. Definitely, a person, who attends a conference without
being under the effects of certain agendas, would present and produce more than
those who are acting in accordance with set instructions given to them by the
imperialists who are controlling the fate and destiny of the occupied nations.
That shows a question of repudiation! It is obvious that the President of the ICA thinks, it is not worth the efforts and financial spending, together with gathering all the experts, academicians, and concerned to meet in the Caucasian country of Georgia for a meaningful meeting that Caucasians from different nations have not been able to have on the soil of their homeland in the occupied parts of the Caucasus for long time.
Circassians should work and to be concerned to promote the values of human rights and to seek justice and to work for United Nations recognition, in which such resolutions will be very effective towards restoring legitimate rights such as self-determination.
ICA and its president are coordinating with the Russian plans to hold the 2014
Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, which appears when promoting the idea of
improving the area of Sochi, and Black Sea coast by having infrastructure,
facilities, jobs creation for the tiny minority left of Shapsough, the ICA
President is seen as amalgamating and mixing disproportionate elements in order
to distract the attention of those who listen to unreasonable heresy!
its president and staff should know and understand by now that Circassians are not
Russians; but their homeland is occupied by the Russian state, and Sochi being
the last Circassian capital city before the total occupation of Circassia and
the official end of the Russian/Circassian War in 21, May, 1864, marking the
symbol of Genocide of the Circassian nation.
about the tiny number of Shapsugs who are currently in their historic homeland
as an example of benefiting of the use of "the infrastructure, facilities, jobs
created by the holding of the Olympic Games 2014”, is totally fabricated
information because the Sochi Olympics’ structures and buildings are making
life miserable and very expensive for people who are still living as strangers
on the soil of their own homeland, and who are barely making their living for
getting basic human needs to stay alive, let alone other needs!
should have the attention that people over there are deprived of citizens’ fundamental
rights, homes, villages and homeland. The Circassians who filed lawsuits in
Russian courts in the recent years, that started before the Sochi issue had
even erupted in the courts of Sochi and places elsewhere, were treated in
contempt and humiliation, and the Circassian Shapsough people could not and
still not able to restore their lands that were occupied and confiscated by the
Russian occupational authorities!
it is necessary Mr. Kanshobi Azhakhov
and all your partners in the so-called ICA, who are passing and who are
dedicated to the Russian colonial policies to look after Circassians in Adygea,
Kabardino-Balkaria, Karachay-Cherkessia, Shapsoughi and other Circassian
enclaves of "Great Circassia” to restore their dignity and basic rights instead
of jumping across the continents and oceans to implement Russian policies upon
Circassian associations in countries of Diaspora, to address a Russian issue
that is related to discouraging and stopping people who got the sense of humanity with
integrity and live-consciousness, from demanding the restoration of the
Circassian nation’s rights of freedom and self-determination.
have to know Mr. Azhakhov and all your partners that people whether they are
Circassians, Caucasians or from other nationalities who are in the picture of
what the Russian State and its occupying authorities and power structures such
as the "SILOVIKI” are doing and how they are treating Circassians and all other
nations who are living under the yoke of the hateful occupation.
seems that people who are still living under the Russian role have not yet
realized that living in liberty and freedom is different than preferring and
being accustomed to stay under the slavery of the FSB/KGB system of the of the
Russian State, or similar conditions in other Diaspora rouge states.
action did you take about the two Circassian Shapsough women that were offended
in Sochi by an influential Muscovite Russian officer, Lieutenant Colonel Roman
Nistratov in Aug., 2009? They never had the chance to restore their rights
through the so-called Russian courts! It is obvious for everybody that there
are areas which Circassians will not be able to enter or to go to, in the Sochi
area, and even before the Olympic structures had commenced! There are people who lost their homes, who are
not able to get adequate compensation and housing in a dignified way of treatment;
but all what they got and still is the inhuman and ill-treatment by the brutal
authorities’ power forces.
to be a messenger to the Russian masters and try to execute their inhuman
policies? When you are going to stop opposing any real Circassian awakening, to
demand and claim the inalienable rights. You may relay a message to your
superiors though that there is dependable material which proves the Russian
Genocide against Circassians, and there are lots of documents that were
obtained from the Georgian official national archives that are presented as
goodwill from the great Georgian nation to the great Circassian nation.
Mr. Kanshobi Azhakhov, everybody cares about the Circassian Question and other
Circassian issues except you, your partners in the so-called "International
Circassian Association”, which is suggested to be called the "International
Russian Adaption of Circassian Association”, which was described by Haci Bayram
Polat in, "THE INSTITUTIONAL FACE
OF COLLABORATIONISM”, as because people will not
have the worries about looking for legitimacy of what is described as ICA,
before dealing with you, but they will understand you and your mission
depending on the title mentioned.
is the typical Russian way to tackle the problems that they face, in order to
turn topics up-side-down.
recent Circassian activities are bothering the Russians, their collaborators,
agents and spies, therefore they want to go in parallel with the current
activities to get all the attention, and then make people through their
nonsense to reach nowhere with no proper objectives which they will be rhetoric
with baseless and empty contents. They think that way of monopoly, the
Circassians will stop asking the ICA to do something for the Circassians
instead of their typical Soviet type gatherings and meetings, and it would be a
getaway method to run from criticism, and at the same time they distract the
positive intentions and trends in order to present an agenda with Russian
fabrications that would not present any tangible results, which would lead to
state of confusion within the Circassian communities.
man had described men as five types:
first type serves his homeland by money, the second type by work, the third by his
pin, the fourth with his life, and the fifth by silence. All of them would
betray their country if they fail to do what they must do towards their homeland
at the proper time.
