Russian Embassy Recalled the Deportation of Indians in the USA
OREANDA-NEWS. The authorities of the United States do not have the moral right to “teach other nations” after the mass deportation of Indians which was sanctioned in the XIX century.
The diplomatic mission timed its publication to the 190th anniversary of the signing of the Indian Removal Act by the American President Andrew Jackson. “Today marks the 190th anniversary of the signing of the Indian Removal Act by President Andrew Jackson. It is one of the many tragic and tearful dates in the history of the United States, which deprives the U.S. Department of State of the moral right to teach other nations, to make claims referring to the dramatic events of the past,” the message published on Facebook reads.The Indian Removal Act entered into force on May 28, 1830. Initially, the initiative was aimed at the voluntary withdrawal of the indigenous population from their lands in exchange for other territories, but in fact this led to the forced deportation of millions of Indians.
