The real owners of the Krasnodar Krai are Circassians and most of the Circassians are now away from their homeland. Tsarist armies exiled Circassians and carried out massacre against Circassians. Only a few of the population escaped from Tsarist violence.
Nowadays in Krasnodar Krai the local administration is carrying out racist actions. The administration is denying Circassians and their rights. Ghuafe Ruslan ,an old Circassian activist, is on hunger strike to tell the unfair actions against Circassians to the world. Ruslan made a declaration on 21st of May ,the Memorial Day of Circassian Genoside and Exile. The administration arrested him then, the administration fined him.
The administration of the Krasnodar Krai should know that your land is our homeland. We are going to get our rights. We are a peaceful nation and you should not act in a racist way. We do not blame the children of Tsarist fathers because of their father’s sin. If the administration handles the hatred of tsarist period to our period nobody will win. You will cause radicalism and you will be targets of an asymmetric and bloody war. There are a lot of supporters of such wars in the world as you clearly know.
We are demanding our rights. You are going to recognise our issue and you are going to act for it.
You are going to accept your grandfathers’ bloody faults and understand what it costed.
We demand citizenship of Russia,
We demand to be able to live on our homeland,
We demand to live on our homeland together with whoever there lives,
We demand to live on our homeland keeping our Circassian colour,
We demand a future on our homeland….
WE DEMAND JUSTICE, WE DO NOT WANT TO TAKE REVENGE.
WE HAVE POTENTIAL TO CREATE A PEACEFUL FUTURE OR YOU CAN WASTE LIVES IN ENDLESS WARS.
