The Federation of the Caucasian Associations in Turkey (Kaffed) issued a press release on 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games in front of the Russian Federation Embassy in Ankara on February 1, 2014. The event was attended by hundreds of people. The president of Kaffed, Yasar Aslankaya, read the press release. It was emphasized that the Circassians scattered all around the world are now in danger of total assimilation as a result of ethnic cleansing by the Tsarist Russia. He called upon the Russian Federation and the international community to acknowledge the genocide of the Circassian nation, and asked for restorative justice to prevent new genocides and tragedies in the future.
The participants mentioned that all those who ignore the Circassians' just demands and deny the historical tragedy will share the blame of the gravest and greatest of the crimes against humanity.
