The mountaineers leaving

It is recognized fact
that in a result of numerous punishing military expeditions, 90% of Circassian
(Adyghian) population was physically destroyed, or deported from their
homeland.



Numerous official
documents of the Russian Empire confirm the offensive acts of the Empire military
units during the Russian-Caucasian War, particularly, non-natural starvations
and epidemics, aiming physical annihilation of the peaceful population – representatives
of Circassian origin.

The history of the latest
period of the humanity knows quite many cases of the nations’ genocide, but the
case of the Circassian (Adyghian) genocide is completely different, for as
distinguished from others, Circassians (Adyghians), together with two third of
their population lost their homeland and so occurred scattered in more than 50
countries of the world.

  • the greatest thing the russians ever did was to drive the muslim tartars and various muslim Turkic tribes from that region, they came into the region with conquest, and they left as such, they can dwell in the fetid squalor of Turkey now for all i care. The biggest mistake the USSR ever made was to let the chechens back into their country after Stalin deported them all to Kazakhstan,

  • Could you show us at least one of those "numerous official documents" instead of publishing empty speeches here?

    There is nothing special with Circassians who were not deported but simply moved to the Ottoman Empire where they felt themselves at home.

    Compared to what the Ottomans did to Armenians the story with Circassians is just a funny joke.
