Overturned pyramid

Overturned pyramid
Russia - as the overturned pyramid, which is rested on the interests of the negligible, outgoing to the point minority. This regime cannot be held, if sane associations do not prop it up from all sides. A question - why do these associations (country) make this? Why they don’t give Russia to accept normal position?
The most terrible, that threatens to world in the case of rigid pressure in Russia – this is what for it is necessary to deal concerning another, more sane Russian government. World saw this after the rigid pressure in Communist Moscow of President Reagan, who named things its names, the named USSR as the "empire of evil". The pressure of the West led to the fact that the empire began noiselessly and bloodlessly transform into the more- less normal state. It was worthwhile for Reagan to forego his concept earlier than this it was to be made, as this transformation it were ...

Life in a Failing Democracy

By Anna Politkovskaya

Metropolitan. 274 pp. $25

Since coming to power in 2000, Russian President Vladimir Putin has had one clear central objective: strengthening the Russian state, at home and abroad. For Putin, Russia's second post-Soviet leader and a former KGB official, the disappearance of the Soviet Union in 1991 was a tragedy that produced anarchy, corruption, instability and uncertainty. He pledged to end the chaos by restoring the state power that had been lost under his predecessor, Boris Yeltsin. Everything else, such as free-market economic reforms or careful, balancing diplomacy, was a means to this end.

Above all, Putin believed that the way to make Russia stronger was to shift more authority to the Kremlin. Motivated by this conception of state-building, Putin has shrunk or eliminated every serious check on presidential power. Russia's two ...

If you want democracy, don't push Putin

If you want democracy, don't push Putin
Igor Zevelev and Kirill Glebov International Herald Tribune
SUNDAY, MARCH 12, 2006
WASHINGTON The Bush administration is about to reshape its strategy towards Russia. A report released March 7 by the Council on Foreign Relations said that 15 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, U.S.-Russian relations were clearly moving in the wrong direction, with President George W. Bush promoting democracy and President Vladimir Putin suppressing it.

Many analysts expect nothing good from Putin without a tougher American line and call for Washington to make democratization a central component of its policy toward Russia. But it is unrealistic to think that Russian democracy, human rights and civil society will improve if the United States applies pressure.

Everybody seems to understand that only Russians can change Russia's internal political arrangements. There is a false belief, however, that the United States can prompt Russians to do this. In the real world, American efforts to ...

No need for west to be shy of Putin
Philip Stephens - Financial Times

THERE is a nice story doing the rounds about how the west’s leaders may show their displeasure at Russia’s slide into authoritarianism. George Bush will boycott the opening banquet at July’s Group of Eight (G-8) summit in St Petersburg. Not wanting to be left out, but too timid to risk giving quite so much offence to President Vladimir Putin, European leaders will leave the table before dessert is served.

It could almost be true. The story is a perfect metaphor for the tangle in which the US and its partners in the old G-7 now find themselves. Most of them are embarrassed by the summit, but some less than others. One or two have flirted with a token gesture of reluctance. No one has said out loud what all — or maybe most ...
