Tbilisi torments Circassians with genocide

2011-05-12 12:55

Tbilisi torments Circassians with genocide. 16933.jpegThe Georgian parliament is getting still closer to recognizing the genocide of Circassians by the Russian Empire. It is likely that the members of the committee for the affairs of compatriots and Caucasian issues will consider the question on May 13. Yet, the desire to spite Moscow makes Tbilisi blind. Georgian authorities ignore a number of crucial sides of the problem and, most importantly, interests of Circassians as a nation. That is why the strike that Saakashvili's regime wants to hit Russia is likely to have negative


consequences for Georgia's policies in the region.

Nugzar Tsiklauri, a deputy of Georgian parliament known as an author of many openly anti-Russian initiatives in the North Caucasian direction, reports that the problem of genocide of Circassians will soon be considered at the level of the committee. After that, the text of the statement will be presented to the rest of deputies. Knowing today's life in "democratic" Georgia this means immediate adoption. High activity of the country's authorities is understood: there is little time before May 21, the anniversary of the end of the Caucasian war. At that time the "Circassian issue" will be raised more often and Tbilisi is in a hurry.

Georgia tries to disguise this provocation with statements that Circassians from all over the world refer to the parliament of the republic. Yet, for the time being, local mass media have come up with just a small bunch of movements that insist on recognition of genocide on the part of Russia. Thus, Tbilisi's ambition to become "the advocate of Circassians" is not serious. Most probably we'll learn about a couple of new "social activists" making loud statements on allegedly revealed facts of infringement on rights of the North Caucasian nation. This scenario has been used lots of times. Apparently, its authors live on the other side of the Atlantic.

Georgia again acts as an obedient puppet led by the masterly wire-puller overseas. It will be remembered that the "Circassian issue" sprang up assisted by Jamestown Foundation known for its ambiguous reputation, putting it mildly. An attempt to recognize genocide of Circassians corresponds to the desire of the political elite in Washington to weaken Russia's influence in North Caucasus. It's not incidental that analytical materials of the foundation above contain numerous statements that Tbilisi has become Moscow's counterweight in the region. It is not important that these opinions of Western experts contradict the real state of things. Yet they are quite demonstrative when true reasons of Georgia's desire to recognize the genocide are analyzed.

The trouble us that Georgian benefactors will have to solve another important task - to make the rest of the world (and primarily Circassians) believe that they simply care for historical justice and don't want to spite Russia. For the time being this is not quite evident: the trick of genocide is easily seen through even to naпve observers. The majority of Circassian organizations in Russia has a clear idea of real goals of Georgian deputies. Obviously, recognition of genocide in North Caucasus in view of Moscow-Tbilisi relations will be seen exclusively as an act of aggression in a media war. And naturally, this won't help settle down friendly relations between two states.
