    Ukraine declares 2019 as Bandera Year 

    naukr

    The Zhytomyr Regional Council declared 2019 as Bandera Year, to celebrate one of the founders of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN, banned in Russia), Stepan Bandera. This was reported on Thursday, July 26, on the website of the regional council.

    The decision was made to celebrate Bandera’s 100th birthday. “An appropriate plan of events for the celebration of Stepan Bandera’s birthday will be developed, and funds will be allocated to finance the activities when forming the budget for 2019,” the report said.

    Also, the regional council recommended that the city council of Zhytomyr allocate funds for the installation of a monument to Bandera.

    In February, the Kiev City Council gave permission for the red-black flag of the OUN to be hung on the administrative buildings in the city during some solemn days of celebration. The exact list of days was not defined; it was proposed to include dates such as January 1 (the birthday of OUN founder Stepan Bandera), February 3 (the founding day of the OUN), March 5 (the anniversary of the death of the commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army in Russia, Roman Shukhevych), and a number of other dates. Deputies of the Lviv City Council issued a similar recommendation on February 15.

    In the same month, the city council of Ternopil decided to raise the OUN flag during ceremonial and festive events. In January, the Lviv Regional Council approved the usage of the OUN red-and-black flag. It was recommended to hang it on the buildings of the authorities during the celebration of nine dates related to “outstanding events of the national liberation struggle and honoring the memory of heroes.”

    The UPA militants (the military wing of the OUN) in 1943 organized the so-called Volhynia massacre – the ethnic cleansing of the Polish population. According to various estimates, from 30,000 to 100,000 people were slaughtered in mass-killings. One of the OUN leaders was Stepan Bandera.

    The Zunghar Khanate, last of the mighty khanates

    Emperor Qianlong, annihilator of the Zunghars

    In the early 17th century, Mongolia was divided between many different tribes. In the West were the Oirats, and in the East the Khalkas. Starting in the 1630s the Oirats began to unify into a coherent nation, while the Khalkas remained at constant war with each other. The new Oirat nation that formed in 17th century was called the Zunghar Khanate. This was the last powerful Central Asian nomad state. It was a nation of Buddhist Mongols, following the traditions of Genghis Khan and Tibetan Buddhism.

    The Zunghars, united under Galdan Boshogtu, attacked the Khalkhas in 1688. After their defeat, the Khalkas fled to Inner Mongolia, which belonged to the Manchurian Qing Dynasty at this time. The Qing emperor was Kangxi, often said to be China’s second-longest ruling emperor (61 years!).

    The Qing had conquered China from the Ming dynasty in the mid-17th century, and were slowly taking over Mongolia. They were already quite sinicized by 1719, but still retained enough of their Manchu culture for the Mongols to willingly submit to them. Kangxi promised to feed the starving refugees, and provided the Khalkas with military support against the Zunghars in exchange for submission.

    From the Khalkas’ point of view, they were submitting to a dynasty of nomadic origin and not a Chinese dynasty. Kangxi was part Mongol. In fact, he had more Mongol blood than Chinese (but he was still mostly Manchu).

    In 1696, Kangxi drew Galdan towards Beijing with offers of peace, then personally led a campaign into Mongolia and won. Galdan fled to the West, and died mysteriously the next year. Then Kangxi withdrew and allowed Galdan’s nephew Tsewang Rabdan to take control of the Zunghar Khanate.

    After about two decades of peace, tensions over Tibet led once again to war. A pro-Qing Mongol khan, Lha-Bzang, took over Tibet and deposed the Dalai Lama in 1705. Twelve years later, the Zunghars took over Tibet, killed Lha-Bzang and sacked Lhasa. In 1720, Kangxi drove the Zunghars out of Tibet. He also used the opportunity to establish firmer control over Tibet. Two years later, Kangxi died.

    The Zunghar Khanate continued to exist for several decades before their eventual self-destruction. The empire fell into civil war upon the death of Galdan Tseren in 1745. The Qing used the opportunity to take over Dzungaria and systematically exterminate the Zunghars. According to a Chinese annalist, Wei Yuan, 40% of them died from smallpox, 30% were massacred, 10% were made servants or slaves, and 10% ran away to Russian or Kazakh territories (and were assimilated by other peoples). The genocide of the Zunghars was done not only by the Chinese and Manchus, but also with the assistance of Turkic Muslim peoples, notably the Uighurs, whom the Zunghars had previously attacked and oppressed.

    Russia, in the meantime, was ruled by Peter the Great from 1672 to 1725. The Zunghars constantly begged Russia for arms and military support against the Qing Empire, but the Russians were only interested in trade. Peter was too occupied with the Great Northern War (1700-1721) in Europe to seriously consider campaigning in the east. The Russians offered to militarily support the Zunghars only if they formally submitted to Peter and became part of the Russian Empire. Tsewang apparently considered this option. The Kalmyks, another Oirat people, had migrated to Russia and submitted to the Tsar in the early 17th century. They were much better off than the Zunghars. The Kalmyks still live in Russia today, whereas the Zunghars were exterminated.

    In the time of the Qing, the Uighurs and Manchu-led Chinese were eager to cooperate in eliminating the Zunghar people, yet today the Manchu people are gone and the Chinese are persecuting the Uighurs and threatening their very existence. It’s a dog eat dog world.

    China: First-hand account from inside a Chinese racist-atheist brainwashing camp 

    According to statistics from the US State Department, at least tens of thousands of Uighurs in the Xinjiang Autonomous Region of China are detained in “reeducation camps” set up by the authorities. Uighurs and some scholars who are exiled overseas say that this number may be as high as almost one million.

    One doesn’t have to do anything wrong to end up in these camps, of course. There is extreme surveillance in Xinjiang, so that people are watched even in their own homes through visits and “homestays” by government officials, and also through their phones and other electronics. In public places, they are carefully watched by surveillance cameras. If someone prays, fasts for Ramadan, or reads the Quran, they are at risk of being abducted and put in one of these horrible camps for as long as the government likes.

    Recently, survivors of Xinjiang prisons and “reeducation camps” told the Associated Press about their horrific experiences during their imprisonment. These are by far the most detailed testimonies of the internal conditions of these detention facilities.

    Amir Bekali, 42, was born in China to Kazakh and Uighur parents. In 2006, he emigrated to Kazakhstan and obtained citizenship there three years later. In March 2017, he returned to China to visit family. He was surprised to find that the hometown he left over a decade ago had changed beyond recognition. It had become a place of pervasive surveillance and arbitrary detentions.

    A few days after his arrival, Bekali too was arrested. The police said that Karamay City had a warrant for his arrest. That was where he had lived over a decade ago. Bekali was kept in solitary confinement for a week before being transferred to the public security authorities in Karamay. The focus of the police interrogation was his cooperation with a travel agency in Kazakhstan. The authorities said that they helped Chinese Muslims obtain Kazakhstan tourist visas so they could flee China.

    He stretched out his arms and showed how his body was hung up. His feet could barely reach the ground and he could not sleep for four days and nights.

    He said that on weekdays, his hands and feet were tied to iron shovels and he was tied to his bed [translation is dubious here]. He could not stand upright or move freely.

    “I’d go to sleep and hang my hand on the iron gate. It was like ‘toss me and torture me.’”

    “They tried to make me confess to endangering national security. This was the first charge; the second was organizing terrorists, inciting terrorists, and shielding terrorists.”

    Bekali was released from this torture thanks to the intervention of Kazakhstan’s diplomats. He was not freed but was put into a “reeducation camp.”

    There, he and 40 other people were locked up in a room. Day after day, they would get up early in the morning, sing the national anthem, raise the national flag, and then be taken to a big room to sing communist songs. They were taught Chinese and the communist version of Chinese history, and especially about how the Communist Party “liberated” Xinjiang in the 1950s. What kind of liberation is it that entails being imprisoned and tortured? Before eating, they would shout in unison: “Thank the party, thank the motherland, and thank you, President Xi!” and in class, they had to repeat: “We oppose extremism, we oppose separatism, we oppose terrorism.”

    What was most difficult for him to accept was that they had to constantly denounce Islamic beliefs, criticize themselves and criticize their loved ones. When Bekali refused to do so, he was stationed on the wall for five hours. One week later, he was kept in solitary confinement and was not allowed to eat for 24 hours. After 20 days in a heavily guarded camp, he thought of suicide.

    Bekali was finally released in the end of November last year, more than eight months after he was arrested.

    After that, he was allowed to leave China. But until today, he still can’t get out of that shadow.

    When you condemn yourself, deny your thoughts, your own nationality, that kind of stress is enormous,” he told reporters in tears. “Every night I think of the experience again until the sun rises. I cannot sleep. These ideas are entangled with me all the time.”

    A few months later, his parents and sister were also placed in “re-education camp.”

    The case of Amir Bekali exposes China’s extreme policies towards Uighurs and Kazakh people,” said Omer Kanat, Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Uyghur World Congress.

    The “2017 Annual Report” issued by the US Committee of the US Congress pointed out that the religious freedom situation of Xinjiang Uyghur and Kazakh Muslims is deteriorating.
