Khloponin: Georgia uses the Circassians to harm the Olympics
Presidential Envoy in the North Caucasus Federal District Alexander Khloponin said that the Georgian leadership is going to influence the Olympic Games 2014 in Sochi through the recognition of the genocide of Circassians.
"It is clear that Georgia is playing a political card through the Circassian issue and playing it before the Olympic Games" - VZGLYAD reported the words of Khloponin.
Recall, on March 20 the Georgian parliament adopted a decision on recognizing the genocide of the Circassian people from Russia in the XIX century.
All the 95 MPs voted "for". Representatives of the parliamentary majority has already stated that this decision is the recovery of "historical justice."
The document stated the "planned" nature of the Russian massacres and forced resettlement of the Circassians in the XIX century.
Recently it was reported that Georgia will establish a memorial to the victims of "genocide on the part of Russia" of the Circassian people in the middle of XIX century.
The decision to establish a memorial has been taken by the Parliament of the Republic. Also in Georgia there will be a special Circassian center.
