Republican "Adyghe Khase": we need to
celebrate 450th anniversary of Adygeya’s
voluntary integration in Russia
The 450th anniversary of the voluntary integration of Adygeya in Russia, on some preliminary data, would be celebrated in September of the next year. The chairman of the executive committee of the social movement "Adyghe Khase" of the republic Askhad Chirg declared to the journalists of Adygeya mass-media that the executive committee of the organization had unanimously made the decision to participate in the celebrating actions, IА REGNUM correspondent reported.
\"This event, - he said, in particular, - cannot be connected with the Caucasian war of the XIX century. It had occurred much earlier and showed what mutual relations between Russian and Adygs at that time had existed, how Adygs participated in life of the Russian state. We are not the only one who should celebrate this date; for the celebrations in Kabardino-Balkaria and Karachaevo-Circassia they also prepare\". In summary Chirg called up all inhabitants of Adygeya to participate actively in the celebration.
Let's remind, some days earlier with a protest against the holiday preparation the branch of "Adyghe Khase" of Adygeysk town acted. The text of the protest was spread in the republican structure of the organization, to the governmental newspapers, and was delivered to IА REGNUM correspondent.
According to the head of the branch Aliy Tliap, he was informed that in Maykop the session of the council of "Adyghe Khase" where the protest of the town branch they planned to consider gathered. The council of the organization has 33 persons. However the call about the preparing session was received not from "Adyghe Khase" directly (as it had always been) but from one of the republican authorities. Tliap phoned members of the council and found out that nobody of them was informed about the preparing action. Therefore the executive committee of the organization he headed made decision to not take part in preparing discussion of the protest in Maykop. Now it was found out that the protest was rejected by the executive committee of "Adyghe Khase" (7 people).
From "AdygeaNatPress": Tliap noted also that the town branch had kept its opinion. The branch is going to achieve discussion of the protest with the expanded structure of participants of the movement of "Adyghe Khase" among which as he hoped they would find support. Besides the leader of the branch stated his confidence that the protest should be expressed also by other public organizations of the republic.
