According to "Rosbalt", chairman of the Georgian committee for expatriate communities and relations with fellow countrymen Nugzar Tsiklauri has met with the Didos' initiative group. They handed over an appeal to the Georgian deputies stating that representatives of this nationality are accusing Russia of persecution.
"We were repressed in 1944. Our houses and possessions were destroyed. We demand a compensation for former political prisoners. We came to Georgia to tell the world about the way we are treated. Also, we ask to make Didoeti (a Georgian name for the Dagestan region) part of Georgia", - says one of the citizens of Dagestan Mohammed Ramzanov.
In his turn, Nugzar Tsiklauri underlined that the initiative on changing the boundary does not fall within the official Tbilisi's plans. "At the same time, we see the Caucasus as a single cultural area and there is no division into the North and South Caucasus from this point of view; there is one single Caucasus", - he stated.
Let us remind you that earlier, the Georgian government raised the issue of the genocide over Circassians on Russia's part. According to the Circassians, about 400 thousand people fell victims to Russian Empire's stiff policy and half a million were expelled.
Some of the Circassian organizations declared the fact of the genocide to the world but received no support from the world community.
An international academic conference dedicated to the so-called Circassian issue was held in Tbilisi at the end of November.
The necessity of international recognition of the genocide over Circassians in Russian Empire in the second half of XIX century was actively discussed at the previous similar conference.
