The Caucasian War of 1817–1864, also known as the Russian conquest of the Caucasus[1] was an invasion of the Caucasus by the Russian Empire which ended with the annexation of the areas of the North Caucasus to Russia and the Ethnic cleansing of Circassians. It consisted of a series of military actions waged by Russia against territories and tribal groups in Caucasia including Chechnya, Dagestan, Karachay and the Circassians (Adyghe, Kabarday), Abkhaz, Abazins and Ubykh as Russia sought to expand southward.[2]
The Russian–Circassian War, a conflict between Russia and Circassia, was part of the Caucasian War.
Other territories of the Caucasus (Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan) were incorporated into the Russian empire at various times in the 19th century as a result of Russian wars with the Ottoman Empire and Persia.


Three Russian Tsars sparked the war: Alexander I, Nicholas I and Alexander II. The leading Russian commanders were Aleksey Petrovich Yermolov in 1816–1827, Mikhail Semyonovich Vorontsov in 1844–1853 and Aleksandr Baryatinskiy in 1853–1856. The writers Mikhail Lermontov and Leo Tolstoy, who gained much of his knowledge and experience of war for his book War and Peace from these encounters, took part in the hostilities. The Russian poet Alexander Pushkin referred to it in his Byronic poem The Prisoner of the Caucasus (1821).
The Russian invasion was met with fierce resistance. The first period coincidentally ended with the death of Alexander I and Decembrist Revolt in 1825. It achieved surprisingly little success, especially as compared with the then recent Russian victory over the "Great Army" of Napoleon.
During 1825–1833 there was little activity, since Russia was engaged in its wars with Turkey and Persia. After considerable successes in both wars, Russia resumed fighting in the Caucasus. They were again met with resistance, notably led by Ghazi Mollah, Gamzat-bek and Hadji Murad. Imam Shamil followed them. He led the mountaineers from 1834 until his capture by Dmitry Milyutin in 1859. In 1843, Shamil launched a sweeping offensive aimed at the Russian outposts in Avaria. On the 28th of August, 10,000 men converged from three different directions on a Russian column in Untsoikul, killing 486 men. In the next four weeks, Shamil captured every Russian outpost in Avaria except one, exacting over 2,000 casualties on the Russian defenders. He feigned an invasion north to capture a key chokepoint at the convergence of the Avar and Kazi-Kumuh rivers.[3] In 1845, Shamil's forces achieved their most dramatic success when they withstood a major Russian offensive led by Prince Vorontsov.
During the Crimean War, the Russians brokered a truce with Shamil but hostilities resumed in 1855. Warfare in the Caucasus finally ended between 1856–1859, when a 250,000 strong army under General Baryatinsky broke down the mountaineers' resistance.
The war in the Eastern part of the North Caucasus ended in 1859 when Shamil was caught by the Russians and forced to surrender and swear allegiance to the Tsar and was sent to live in Central Russia. The war in the Western part of the North Caucasus resumed however with the Circassians (Adyghe, Abkhazian, and Ubykh) resuming the fight. The end was declared on June 2, 1864 (May 21 O.S.), 1864, by manifesto of the Tsar. Among the post-war events, a tragic page in the history of the indigenous peoples of the Caucasus especially the Circassians was Muhajirism, or population transfer of the Muslim population into the Ottoman Empire.[4]

 Ethnic cleansing of Circassians
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The mountaineers leave the aul, by P. N. Gruzinsky, 1872
In the middle of the 19th century, large numbers of native inhabitants of the Northwest Caucasus left or were expelled (the reason for their departure is disputed) to the neighbouring Ottoman Empire, following Russian conquest of the region after a long war.
Circassians, the indigenous peoples of the Northwest Caucasus were cleansed[1] from their homeland at the end of the Caucasian War by victorious Russia, which, some argue, by its manner of suppression of the Caucasus directed at the Crimean Tatars and Circassians can be credited with "inventing the strategy of modern ethnic cleansing and genocide".[2] The expulsion was launched even before the end of the war in 1864 and it continued into the 1870s, although it was mostly completed by 1867. The peoples involved were mainly the Circassians (Adyghe in their own language), Ubykhs, Abkhaz, and Abaza.
This expulsion involved an unknown number of people, perhaps numbering hundreds of thousands. The Russians had come to refer to them as mountain-people (горцы, górtsy). The Russian army rounded up people, driving them from their villages to ports on the Black Sea, where they awaited ships provided by the neighboring Ottoman Empire. The explicit Russian goal was to expel the groups in question from their lands.[3] They were given a choice as to where to be resettled: in the Ottoman Empire or in Russia far from their old lands. Only a small percentage (the numbers are unknown) accepted resettlement within the Russian Empire.
An unknown number of deportees perished during the process. Some died from epidemics among crowds of deportees both while awaiting departure and while languishing in their Ottoman Black Sea ports of arrival. Others perished when ships underway sank during storms.[4] Two other Muslim peoples in the northwest Caucasus, the Karachay and the Balkars, were not deported in large numbers after 1864. According to the Russian government's own figures at the time, about 90 percent of the affected peoples were deported.
The Ottoman and Russian fought at least 17 wars between 1568 and 1917. The Ottomans lost vast and often solidly Turkish and Muslim, territories spanning from the Crimea to Circassia to the Russians. The Russians killed many inhabitants of these Ottoman lands and expelled the rest to Turkey. So many Turks descend from refugees from Russia that the adage in Turkey is: "If you scratch a Turk, you find a Circassian persecuted by Russians underneath." [5]

Since 1998 March 31st is officially celebrated as the Day of Genocide. Bloodsheds during March massacres in Azerbaijan are one of the most tragic and unforgettable events of the world history.

Nagorno Karabakh events are another evidence of Armenian policy of the massacre and deportation of Azerbaijanis that happened four times during the last century (in 1905-1906, 1918-1920, 1948-1953 and 1988-1989). It is Armenian chauvinism that desired to create "Great Armenia" who is guilty for these tragedies. In early 1918 Armenians started to realize their vicious plans about killing Azerbaijanis living in Baku province. The carnage reached its culmination in March and April of 1918. Massacre of Azerbaijanis was specially brutal in Baku, Shamakhi, Guba, Garabagh, Zangazur, Nakhchivan, Lankaran and other regions. Armenian genocide that happened in 1918 has etched in the memory of Azerbaijanis. More than 50 thousand Azerbaijanis were killed and ten thousands of people were expelled from their own lands in Baku, Shamakhi, Guba, Mughan and Lankaran regions. Nearly 30 thousand Azerbaijanis were killed in Baku.58 villages were devastated in Shamakhi -- 7000 citizens were killed (1653 of them were women and 965 were children). 122 villages in Guba, 150 villages in Nagorno Karabakh, 115 villages in Zangazur, 211 villages in Iravan province, and 92 villages in Gars province were razed to the ground.

Independent investigator Kluge writes: "Armenians tortured and killed Muslim population, hit them with swords, cut their bodies with bayonets, cut the noses, ears and heads of the corpses, burned houses with their residents inside, they removed women's clothes and beat them savagely". These facts are only a small part of Armenian brutality and reflect only three days of the carnages committed in Baku.

Old Shamakhi city suffered more devastating brutality. The part of the city where Muslim people lived was set on fire, 13 mosques including Juma Mosque were burned. Armenians killed 8077 Azerbaijanis in 53 villages of Shamakhi province. 4190 of them were men, 2560 were women and 1277 were children.

Armenians performed three carnages in Guba region with the help of Bolsheviks.

Till June of 1918 Armenians killed more than 16 thousand Azerbaijanis. According to separate sources, almost 12000 Lezghin people and more than 4000 Azerbaijanis were killed during the massacres. Dashnak-Bolshevik alliance destroyed 162 villages in Guba province, 35 of which do not exist ay more.

In March 27th of 1998 President gave a decree that announced March 31st the day of Azerbaijani Genocide to celebrate the tragedy of Azerbaijani massacres.
