So, there has been long debate for many, many years about whether Oirat tribes in Europe is deserve our own country separate from Russia. Even though their government is grant us some land like Kalmykia, this place is still not independant country, and they is still have to take orders from Russian government.
Russian people is already do very much to destroy our culture, like ban Oirat and Mongol languages from schools and these things. So what I am think, who is right here? How many people is agree with me that Oirat tribe must each be given our own republic, or maybe only one big republic for all tribes, to live in that is 100% free from Russia?
What is your opinion?
How many Oirats are there in Russia? What's the lifestyle of the Oirats?
The problem with separatist movements is that no country could actually support them without the risk of granting legitimacy to their own separatist movements and there is a lot of them in the world!
The few stories of success out there usually had the support from a lobby group within a more powerful country (like the Christians in U.S. supporting the creation of South Sudan, or the history of the Jews and Israel) or was the easiest way to weaken a potential enemy without actually going to war with them.
In this case we are talking about Russia which has Veto power in the UN and will probably do everything they can to stop the country from gaining full recognition even if they had de facto independency.
