Political analyst: Recognition of Circassian genocide by Georgia is move against Russia
Azerbaijan, Baku, June 3 / Trend, M. Aliyev /
Recognition of the Circassian genocide by the Georgian Parliament is a step against Russia, the Director of the Center for Political Innovation and Technology and political analyst Mubariz Ahmedoglu told journalists on Thursday.
"The Russian Federation's modern policy has never given a normal assessment to many events in the country. Mass extermination of the Circassians is one of those examples," he said.
The Georgian parliament adopted a resolution recognizing the genocide of Circassians by the Russian Empire on May 20.
Ahmedoglu said Moscow is weary of addressing this issue, despite its lively discussion in the North Caucasus and Georgia.
"If the Russian politicians took the initiative into their hands and intensified the issue regarding the genocide of Circassians, the discontent which appeared at the beginning of the discussions could be directed toward a more constructive direction. Instead of intensifying discussions, certain forces in Moscow have stirred up the destructive activity among the North Caucasian peoples for their narrow interests," Ahmedoglu said.
He said the Armenians and some Dagestani separatists have been engaged in provoking Azerbaijan and the Northern Caucasus for a long time in Moscow.
"Now, Moscow is in a dire situation because of the Circassian issue," Ahmedoglu said.
