Moscow signal to "partners": Syrian Kurds are opening a public diplomatic mission in the Russian capital

50
The Kurds are the most numerous people in the world, not having their own state. According to the most modest estimates, about 40 million Kurds live in different countries of the world. The largest number of representatives of the Kurdish ethnic group inhabit Turkey (about 17 million), Iran (about 7,5 million), Iraq (about 7 million) and Syria (about 2,5 million). Large Kurdish diasporas are also formed in a number of European countries. The leaders among the EU countries are Germany, where the number of Kurds is close to 800 thousand.


In Russia there are regions in which the number of Kurds has significantly increased lately. Among such regions are Moscow, Moscow and Tambov regions, Krasnodar territory. Russian Kurds (and there are about 70 thousands of people) are mainly from Central Asia (former Soviet republics), primarily from Kyrgyzstan.

Why all this information about the Kurds? And the fact that in the Russian capital opens, in fact, a unique social and diplomatic mission of the Kurdish people. We are talking about the representation of the Syrian Kurds, who are fighting with a number of terrorist groups in the north and north-east of Syria. At the same time, the Kurdish population of Syria in the neighboring (with Syria) Turkey, the local president, was openly announced by representatives of the “groups of international terrorism”, which indicates obvious ethnic discrimination allowed by the head of state in which every 5 citizen is Kurd by nationality.

It is impossible to call the Syrian Kurdistan's public diplomatic mission in Moscow a full-fledged embassy, ​​if only because there is no such independent state on the world map as Syrian Kurdistan. And the Syrian Kurds themselves, as they say, do not insist on such a state recognizing the world community. We are talking about public diplomacy, which in a number of cases can play a very serious role in relations between the peoples of different states.

Information Agency TASS cites the statement of the head of the Council of Federal National-Cultural Autonomy of Kurds Farhat Patiyev:
This will be the representation of a non-governmental organization that does not have the functions of an embassy. The mission will be called upon to defend the interests of the Kurds, who live both in Russia and in Syria, many of whom are not citizens of the Syrian Arab Republic.


Moscow signal to "partners": Syrian Kurds are opening a public diplomatic mission in the Russian capital


It should be noted that Farhat Patiyev is a member of the Council on Interethnic Issues under the President of the Russian Federation. According to Farhat Patiev, in modern conditions it is extremely important to follow the path of consolidating efforts to combat international terrorism, and Russia, as a country making a great contribution to such struggle and being a model of the state of peaceful coexistence of various ethnic groups, can take the path of strengthening ties with friendly Kurdish people facing a terrorist threat.

At the opening of the mission of Syrian Kurds in Moscow, invited Sina Mohammed, representing the Syrian Kurds in Europe and North America. Sina Mohammed accepted the invitation and will arrive in Moscow.

If we talk about the Syrian Kurds' Moscow public diplomatic mission, then it is unique because it is the only such mission that will currently act as a separate organization outside the countries of the Middle East. Such a structure is still present only in Iraq, but there are a hundred times more Kurds in Iraq than in the Russian Federation.

So, why in Moscow, and why now? The first argument that suggests itself is the reciprocal political course of the Russian leadership of official Ankara. As is known, the official authorities of Turkey on their territory readily accept the so-called leaders of the so-called Crimean Tatar “Mejlis” - Messrs. Dzhemilev and Chubarov, who were sent far and long by most of the Crimean Tatars living directly in Crimea. Official Ankara not only welcomes figures embedding into the system of Ukrainian Maidan’s authorities, who come out with openly extremist and even terrorist initiatives against Russia and Crimeans, but also, judging by the statements of Dzhemilev, Chubarov, Islyamov, actively support them in any destructive to the Russian state of activity. Whether it was the undermining of power transmission towers in the Kherson region, where militants of the Turkish terrorist group Gray Wolves “accidentally” looked, or statements about assistance in the implementation of the “sea blockade” of the Crimean peninsula.

If so, then why should Moscow not accept people who, with the mere fact of their existence, cause Erdogan to have violent emotions with demands from the US to answer the question, who are they with, with him (with Erdogan) or with the Kurds ... And if the USA for definite reasons, the Turkish president did not give an unequivocal answer, then Russia indicated its position in relation to the Turkish leader not by word but by deed. What is this position? It is that Russia perceives Erdogan as an accomplice of terrorists and a criminal who not only gives orders to destroy the aircraft that performed the counterterrorism mission in Syria, but also violates the rights of millions of Kurds in their country and tries to dictate conditions to the Kurds living in Syrian territory. Moscow is ready to accept the mission of people who oppose themselves to the dictatorship of Erdogan, who has recently passed all imaginable and inconceivable boundaries. Receiving Syrian Kurds, it’s also Moscow’s message to Turkish Kurds ...

But the creation of the public-diplomatic mission of the Syrian Kurds is not only a kind of demarche in relation to Erdogan. First of all, it is still a step towards listening, hearing and uniting all those Syrian forces who are really ready to preserve the united Syria, which stand for Syria from a patriotic stand, despite its attitude to Bashar Asad. And this is a “big hello” to “partners” from Riyadh, who believe that only they are “allowed by the Almighty” to decide from whom it is necessary to shape the future political landscape of Syria. Taking into account the fact that neither Riyadh, nor Ankara, nor the same Washington (given its experience in “dragging down” certain states) clearly do not set itself the goal of preserving Syria as a single and politically strong state in the Middle East region, the Russian initiative to consolidate The real patriotic forces of Syria benefit both directly these forces and the current official Damascus, which needs strong support from the Syrian Kurds as well.

          I flew in a plane and read in one of the free "air newspapers" - either capital or italics for an analyst on the Syrian war - I have always believed that the pipe route is secondary - and primarily the desire of the West to crush Iran. - But still:

          The main reason is the discovery of huge gas fields in Qatar - Europe for 160 years and no Gazprom or Nord Stream is needed. The Saudis with the Qatars began to work out the route and the only obstacle is Assad's disagreement. Iran and Syria, of course, will not allow Qatar to do this for 2 reasons - both competitors and geopolitics - because this is undermining the last "roof" of Iran - Russia

          And immediately in a prosperous decades before Syria, a civil war suddenly begins

    Kurds have now become visible in many Russian cities, soon Jews will also come to Russia at the invitation of the President to live. There is nothing wrong with all this, but it is necessary that the new citizens of Russia live according to Russian laws, and not according to their own. Their national traditions, of course, will not be canceled by anyone and it is not necessary, but they, too, are obliged to know and respect our centuries-old Russian traditions first of all.

      The Kurds who moved to us somehow do not differ much in love for Russia. They live in enclaves - usually in villages - where the local population is very passive, which is what they use - they take away land, insult local residents, harass girls and other joys. So there is no need to hug them in advance: politics is politics, and you need to defend your interests and protect your people. as a rule, settlers live in a large, well-coordinated community, spit on the laws and establish their own rules. Should someone local intercede, as a rule, they will come in a crowd, or the house will be burned down, or even forced to leave. Our people usually appeal to the authorities, but the local "princelings" are somehow reluctant to harness for the population. Roofing felts are also afraid, roofing felts the golden ruble looms in the eyes.

        Yes, fellow countryman, you correctly noted this. They are trying to create enclaves not only in settlements, but also in the cemetery. About a few years ago, in general, a long time ago, I went to one friend in the office, he then worked as chairman of the land committee. He sits thinking about something .., I ask what is the matter. Answers: Just now, he says, there were Kurds and asking for a place under the cemetery. He offered them a place in the Muslim cemetery, they refused. So he says then, and if they allocate a separate place, and the matter goes to this, because they don’t have to bury the deceased already, after all, after a dozen or so years they can declare that their homeland is here, since their ancestors are buried here ... Now there are more than a dozen of their graves in the cemetery, but separately from everyone. And they behave quietly with us, nothing is heard, there are no scandals. Maybe it depends on the indigenous population, as they will and will behave this way.

    The Kurds, of course, are still thugs that they have repeatedly proved throughout the history of the existence of their people.
    But:
    "This is a son of a bitch, but this is our son of a bitch!" -
    Review of Nicaraguan dictator Anastasio Somos (Sr.), who belongs to the 32nd President of the United States (1933-1945) Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882-1945).

    And also the enemy of my enemy - my friend, if not friend, then for sure.
    Now that Turkey, the blood enemy of the Kurds, has again returned to its usual historical state of open hostility with Russia, any enemy of this same Turkey is valuable to Russia as a potential ally that needs to be supported in any way possible, including and so. Especially in modern Syria, where the Kurds, who are actively fighting against Daesh-ISIS, are in favor of maintaining the unity of the country. The main thing is that in the future the Kurds do not forget what Russia did for them and do not repay it with black ingratitude.
    I have the honor.

        The problem is not only for Turkey, which is unconditional. Everyone is shy of the fact that if the Kurds succeed in achieving autonomy in Syria or Iraq, another player in the oil market, close to Russia, will appear. This is a terrible dream of the Saudis, all the monarchies of the gulf, and the United States the choir.

        "Since the whole world became addicted to Middle Eastern oil and gas, this region has been a key point, control over which means control over everything that happens in the world economy and not only in it. It is not surprising that for decades this control Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates often fought under the "sensitive leadership" of the United States. All this strongly resembles the well-known game of the "king of the hill", in which the winner gets full control over the "hill". "
        That something like this.

    The largest number of representatives of the Kurdish ethnic group inhabit Turkey (about 17 million), Iran (about 7,5 million), Iraq (about 7 million) and Syria (about 2,5 million).

    There is a feeling that Turkey, represented by Erdogan, has played in its power. It's time to start paying bills. I think that financial assistance is also coming.

    For some reason it seems to me that having created their own Kurdistan, the Kurds will not run to become someone's "beloved wife", as the Balts and Poles did in their time. They have suffered too much for their state to make it someone's colony. Therefore, our diplomacy needs not to clap its ears and establish contacts with a potential new independent player in the region.

    Do not get euphoric about the Kurdish allies. Mattress covers also work in this direction, Barzani's example, lies under them and does not flutter. The mattress now has the task not to create a unified Kurdistan, but to legitimize the autonomy of the Kurdish territories in Syria and Turkey under its control. Thus, they knock out the so-called "Kurdish trump card" from Russia and keep the territory of the BV countries under their control in constant tension. And Erdogan is not a hindrance to them, I think they have already found a replacement for him. Something like this.

    It would probably be better for the Turks to get between the Kurds in Afrin and the Kurds in Kobani, because Cobanies are in full control of the Americans. Therefore, when combining the two enclaves, one can expect that pro-American Kurds will try to crush everyone else for themselves.

    Remember - the two great leaders of the two great peoples - Joseph Stalin and Mustafa Barzani, probably agreed on something in the 1947 year and, as a result of these agreements, the Anglo-Saxons left Iraq, Iran (and Nefte Mosul).
    And today, no one in the West, especially in the countries of the Middle East, primarily Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, does not want Mosul’s oil to be in the territory of an independent Kurdish state and under its control.

    Kurds are the most numerous people in the world that do not have their own state.

    Why, I can immediately name a people numbering hundreds of one and a half million people who do not have their own state. More precisely, it was, but after the Bolsheviks there was only a kind of "multinational" something there.
