This is nothing new. Moscow has employed these tactics since Circassians have had organizations outside of the Caucasus. Valery Dzutsev sums it well in the last three paragraphs in Lessons For Today’s Circassian Activists in the Diaspora? (Part Three):
“The issue of the Sochi Olympics in 2014 is politically important to Moscow, and the Circassian diaspora abroad seems determined to use this event to attract the world’s attention to what it considers to be an injustice committed by the Russians against the Circassians. It is very likely the Russian security services followed Kazakov’s advice “to use the Soviet experience” to infiltrate the Circassian organizations abroad and curb and obstruct their activities in other ways.
Kazakov’s dissertation once again puts on display the proverbial conservatism of the Russian security services, which still think of the past in profoundly Soviet terms. The famous Russian writer of Ossetian origin, Gaito Gazdanov, is listed as “an émigré enemy,” apparently for his work for Radio Liberty in France. Abdurakhman Avtorkhanov, the most famous North Caucasian historian and Sovietologist of Chechen origin, is dismissed as a mere “anti-Soviet spy.”
Kazakov’s study provides at least two useful tips for the Circassian diasporas that are actively working on the Sochi Olympics issue. First, the Russian security agencies are prone to follow in the Soviet security services’ footsteps, so their actions can be predicted from the Soviet experience to a certain extent. Second, dispatching undercover spies from the Circassian-populated republics of the North Caucasus abroad is likely still to be deemed an effective tactic by the contemporary Russian security services.”

People or elements that blocks the promotion of talking about history in ways to develop the future of the Adyghe nation must be removed from their positions in Diaspora Circassian organizations. Their interests do not serve the majority of Circassians. Instead, they serve the oppressors thereby aiding the disappearance of a noble nation.
