THE KHONGORAİ KHYRGHYZ [KHAKAS] PEOPLE'S STRUGGLE IN THE NAME OF NATIONAL INDEPENDENCE AGAINST RUSSIAN INVADERS IN 17 AND 18. CENTURIES

TİMUR B.DAVLETOV

In spite of such once time generally accepted so-named concept emphiseizes the annexation based on voluntary demand and free-will of indigenous nations lived throughout the Siberian territories to Russian state, in recent time, especially after Soviet Unoin’s collapse, points of view that attempt examining the homogeneity of colonization process and history of non-Russian territories and reconstructing the true history about fights some aboriginal populations against Russian invasion have spreadly  recognised in Russian society and science.

In Soviet period, the history of Khakas nation’s straggle for its independence have been interpreted in favor of then existed official ideological frames and through filters of traditiona Soviet-style interclass antagonism’s approach too, and the fact of Khakas fight against invaders in the name of protection of liberty have also been totally terminated. According to that interpretations, Khakas people on the ground of free-will have itself selected and prefered to be swallowed by invaders. In the name of this pure fabricatoin false history, in Khakas Republic during last two decades have been made many attempts to erect a monument aim of which would be glorification of so-named ‘free-will’ annexation of Khakas state and nation (Khyrghyz Cher-Khan paza Khyrghyz chony) into ‘big brother’s propriety’. It’s very interisting that this fact of so-named voluntary joining to Russian state have been interpreted by everyone as only chance of Khakassian national survival. But at the same time, everyone also know that number of population of Tuvans, who have according to Kiakhtin Agreement of 1727 between Chine and Russian Empire been stayed out of the latter’s territory and anexed to former’s one, far more than populations of Khakas and Altai peoples. Futhermore, at present time in our neighbor country of Tyva there are Tuvans constitute over 70 % of total population while Khakases are lower than 11% within total population of Khakas Republic, the titular nation of which are Khakases themselves.

Fortunately, after total collapse of Soviet totalitarian regime in former USSR there are have really blown ‘winds of changes’ and many of old-aged stereotypes have been broken. And thank to this positive shifts in political shield in Russian Federation have stareted new approaches through re-thinking to old trues previously accepted as dogmatic ones. As one result of these changes, at now-a-days, even in Khakas Republic’s establishment there are have at last been accepted fact of the Khakas nation’s struggle in the name of protection of state and national independence of its Motherland (Chir-Suu) against Russian invaders lasted to about one hundred and fifty years.

Khakassian nation must always remember and revere the memory of fallen national heroes of once honor times of our history and glorify their exploits made in the name of protection of the national independence of Khakas (Khyrghyz and Khoorai) state. They, i.e., national heroes of Khakas nation have been abided by wise words like Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori ... Remembering and revering the memory of our glorious ancestors is sensus communis of  natural task and duty of grateful and thankful descendant generations and progenies of the Khakas nation before our national heroes who constituents the national memory of peoples themselves.
