In 1862, in a last ditch effort to garner support for their increasingly difficult struggle against the Russian encroachment into their country, a Circassian diplomatic delegation headed by the Shapsugh Prince Hassan Khusht was dispatched to England by the Great and Free Assembly (established in June 1861 by the Shapsugh, Abzakh, and Ubykh, following a national meeting in Sochi to restructure civil administration and reorganize the military; it consisted of fifteen elders).

Despite public enthusiasm in England, this time not even promises were forthcoming. The British Government had realized that there was no way of stopping the Russians in their drive to occupy the whole of Circassia. The Circassians were left to fend for themselves. It was a matter of time before the inevitable would happen. The lamb was set for slaughter.

Perhaps after this unsuccessful political and diplomatic foray to England, the Circassians should have sought to reach a peace deal with the Russians to stop the war and salvage the remainder of the Circassian nation.
