Caucasian war, which claimed many victims

The Caucasian war lasted a long time: from 1763 to 1864. The result of these bloody years was the massive deportation of Circassians to the territory of the Ottoman Empire. Nine out of ten Circassians forcibly left their native places. Thus, a little more than 50 000 people remained in their homeland.

On May 21, 1864, this terrible war finally ended. In honor of the end of the Caucasian war in the town of Kbaade (now Krasnaya Polyana), a solemn parade was held in the upper Mzymta River and Russian rule was established throughout the Western Caucasus. Since that time, Circassians from around the world have traditionally celebrated this day with memorable events and processions, recalling their fellow countrymen and ancestors who died in the Caucasian War.
