GB: Sochi And Northwest Caucasus – I

Sochi and Northwest Caucasus – I

WEB EXCLUSIVES | April 1, 2010     


In 2007, the International Olympic Committee announced that the 2014 winter Olympics would be awarded to Russia. The games are to be held in the Black Sea resort of Sochi, where the Caucasus Mountains rise abruptly out of a subtropical coastline. The IOC’s decision brought international attention to an area that is often ignored by outside observers: Russia’s Northwest Caucasus. As a glance at the map will show, Sochi itself is not far from the troubled provinces of Chechnya, Ingushetia, and Dagestan, leading many to wonder why the Kremlin would want to host the Olympics in an apparently tense region. Such questions will doubtless be raised more vigorously following the recent terrorist attacks against the Moscow subway system, which have reminded Russians, and the rest of the world, that the multiple conflicts that plague the Caucasus have not been ...

RFE/RL: Troubled Sochi Olympics Draw Focus On Caucasus Conflicts

Troubled Sochi Olympics Draw Focus On Caucasus Conflicts

by Claire Bigg

When Vladimir Putin traveled to Guatemala three years ago to personally promote Russia's bid for the 2014 Winter Olympics, he pledged the Games in Sochi would be "safe, enjoyable, and memorable."

Putin, now prime minister, may be wishing he never made that promise.

Reports that Islamic rebels are plotting to disrupt the event, U.S. calls to use the Olympics as a lever on Moscow, and a Georgia-led boycott campaign -- added to a shortage of funds and protests from environmentalists -- have all combined to make the Sochi Games some of the most divisive in Olympic history.

"I'm afraid that Putin, by proposing and taking charge of the 2014 Olympics, made a very serious mistake," says Russian political analyst Nikolai Petrov.

Security Fears


Although many Russians still see the 2014 Olympics as a matter of national pride, the initial euphoria sparked by Sochi's selection as ...

The Fact About The Russian Occupation Of Circassia

The Fact About The Russian Occupation Of Circassia


Invading Russian troops came to occupy the Circassian land in beloved Caucasus, as if occupying a land without people, even with the encounter that there are people living there, which is not their right to live in the Caucasus and always according to the imperial logic! They've had to either die or live servile subjugated under the yoke of Russian colonial rule or leave compulsorily, that after homeland was destroyed through tampering its wreck havoc, the burning of villages, towns, farms, homes and their seizure, looting commodities and public and private properties, as the repressive authorities backed by barbaric forces created by the rape and occupation to try to erase history by committing acts of murder, ethnic cleansing and genocide by the regular soldiers of the Russian army in collaboration with the mercenaries, hired-individuals, and agents, and based on the orders issued by ...

NatPress: Conclusion Of Russian Academy Of Science About “Circassian” And “Circassia”

posted by eagle on as CIRCASSIA ADIGA


Conclusion of Russian Academy of Science about "Circassian” and "Circassia”


12 June 2010 – 04:31 pm – NatPress

The International Circassian Association received the reply from the Establishment of the Russian Academies of Sciences (RAS) "Ethnology and anthropology Institute of M.N.Miklukho-Maklay”. NatPress offers the text of the letter:

"The ethnonym ‘Circassian’ and toponym ‘Circassia’ as designations of the people and its country in North-Caucasus appear in the Armenian, Georgian, Arabian, Persian, Turkic, an some other historical sources since the XIII century AD, having superseded the previous ethnonymic nomenclature – Kerkets, Zihs, Djihs, Kashags, Kases, Kasogs, Djarkases and so on. The ethnonym ‘Circassian’ became common in the European and the Russian sources since ХV-ХIХ centuries.

At the same time the local population invariable named itself ‘Adyghe” though probably the local names with which separate ethnopolitical formations identified themselves - Natuhai, Abadzeh, Jane, Kabardei, and so on - still had value. Nevertheless, despite of certain distinctions of social, cultural, language character, from the historical-ethnographic point ...

2014 Sochi Olympics Event At Jamestown Foundation

Sochi in 2014: 

Can an Olympics Take Place at the 
Site of the Expulsion of the Circassians 150 Years Earlier?

Friday, June 18, 2010 
10:30 A.M. - 12:30 P.M. 

*A light luncheon will be served following the event*

WashingtonD.C.


In 2014 the Sochi Olympics will take place at the site of the mass expulsions of over a million Circassians in the 19th century.  Opposition to the Olympic Games is mounting as Circassian nationalism is on the upswing, both in the North Caucasus and among the 7 million strong Circassian Diaspora.  Circassians are now calling for the unification of all three Circassian republics in the Northwest Caucasus into a single republic.  These factors, combined with a possible security threat to the 2014 Olympic Games by militant groups operating in the North Caucasus -- as announced last week by the Director of the Russian Federal Security Services, Aleksandr Bortnikov -- promise to deepen an already tense and volatile regional security environment ...
