May 21: Russian terror against demonstrators in Nalchick (capital of Kabardino-Balkaria)
May 21 - Circassians, as in all other parts of the globe where they were scattered in consequence of genocidal war, commemorated Memorial Day of Adyghes (Circassians) - Victims of the Russian-Circassian War, in the years of 1763-1864.
146 years ago, it was completed - the conquest of Circassia, the destruction and expulsion of its population into exile who survived this hell.
Today Circassians live in many countries. They live separate also in their historic homeland. Nevertheless, we believe that our future is one, as well as our past.
We would like to put pictures taken on this day in Nalchik the capital of Kabardino-Balkaria (Eastern Circassia) in which there was Memorial Day held in difficult circumstances.
All the Circassian community organizations are experiencing very severe pressure from the government and semi-criminal elements. The republic is in complicated criminological situation, the daily bombings and shootings of law enforcement agencies have become commonplace.
Those who in previous years organized the mourning for objective reasons were forced to retire.
In the end, all that was done on orders from above turned out as usual gray Soviet-type event without the slightest ideological and semantic load.
However, despite the fierce opposition of the authorities and the cowardly behavior of some "friends", the youth were able to organize themselves and this sorrowful date is worthy of note.
Nalchik, the square in front of the Railway Station. 9.30 am. People are slowly beginning to gather.
On this you can see how Zhantemir Gubachikov explains that the participants of the memorial processions do not have anything bad in thier thoughts and gathered peacefully to walk along the avenue to Pse Chigh (The Soul Tree). However, Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs does not want to believe in the peaceful intentions of people.
Concorde reach elusive.
One of the militia "negotiators." Nervously smoking a little walk away. A shootout there at the moment is serious.
Meanwhile, some demonstrators quietly prepares flags. The goal is clear - to walk through their own native land.
The youth interfere in the case.
The atmosphere is warming up. Police saying these words: You're not going to anywhere!, The march is prohibited and unauthorized. ORDER ON REFUSAL ISSUED AND CONFIRMED by HAGASOV and supported by the Presidential Administration. Pay attention to the young man with armbands. He says: "You can stop us only by one thing: Take up arms and kill us, we will not retreat because of that".
In spite of intimidations and Russian terror by the Putin (KGB agent, president of the Nazi Russia) administration, the memorial day of May 21 in commemorating the Circassian Genocide which was committed by Imperialist Russia was passed as planned, cameras and videos of militias were focusing on demonstrators to haunt future "extremists" as every Circassian national activist today is recognized as such.
