Window on Eurasia: Absent Modernization, Russia Faces Massive Brain Drain and Exodus of Business, Kremlin Advisor Says

Paul Goble

Staunton, April 15 – If modernization does not take place over the next few years, a senior Kremlin advisor says, Russia will suffer a massive "brain drain” and the departure of much of its businesses, the largest to the West and the small and mid-sized to Kazakhstan, leaving it an "uninteresting” bridge between China and Europe.

But despite that prospect, Aleksandr Auzan, a member of the Presidential commission on modernization and technological development of the economy of Russia, concludes sadly, the possibility that Russia will choose to modernize is relatively small, a reflection of short-term thinking and confusion between inertia and stability (

Auzan, a professor at Moscow State University, says that this brain drain is already starting: "half of his students, elite specialists, are leaving to work abroad and not even thinking about returning.” In their wake "business is departing, big business toward the West and ...

Window on Eurasia: Real Incomes of 40 Percent of Russians have Fallen Since 1991, Studies Find

Paul Goble

Staunton, April 13 – The real incomes of the two least-well-off quintiles of the Russian population have fallen since 1991 while those of that two best-off have risen significantly, dramatically increasing income differentiation and potentially exacerbating class-based tensions, according to two studies by the Higher School of Economics.

"If one considers the overall figures concerning how Russia lived in 1990 and 2009,” Andrey Polunin of "Svobodnaya pressa” says in reporting on these studies, "it turns out that citizens have only won as a result of reforms. Thus, consumption has gone up overall 1.45 times. But this is like an average temperature in a hospital” (

That is the trend Moscow and its supporters normally report, but if one unpacks the figures as the Higher School of Economics experts do in two reports ("The Level and Way of Life of the Population in 1989-2009” and "A Comparative Analysis of ...

Window on Eurasia: Young Russians Less Tolerant of Non-Russians than are Their Parents, Poll Finds

Paul Goble

Staunton, April 13 – A survey of 1500 Russians conducted by officials Tomsk found that younger people in that city are less tolerant of representatives of other nationalities than are their parents and other older people, according to a press release of the new Children of the Mountains Organization which unites people from the North Caucasus now living in Russia.

Madonna Dunyaeva, the head of the Children of the Mountains group, said that in March, the Tomsk oblast department for youth policy conducted a poll to clarify "the level of tensions in inter-ethnic relations among residents of Tomsk oblast” and that the results have now been released (

The survey showed, she said that "young people of Tomsk are less tolerant to representatives of other nationalities than are adults,” with 15 percent of young people agreeing with the statement that "multi-nationality harms Russia,” 33 percent saying they feel "anger” ...

Pravda: The West Dreams About Russia To Collapse

posted by eagle on as ANALYSIS / OPINION

The West dreams about Russia to collapse


Why does Finland almost openly support the extremist forces opposed to Russia? This question arises increasingly more often following the latest news from Finland. Last week a criminal case was filed for inciting ethnic hatred against Finnish priest Juha Molari who dared to criticize the website "Kavkaz-Center".

In response, the priest talked about the need to close "Kavkaz-Center" for the Finnish users on the grounds that this publication promotes racism and other forms of extremism. In addition, he called for disclosing the names of those involved in the functioning of the Internet resource, because it is the secrecy that allows its legal status in Finland.

What did the Finnish authorities not like? They were outraged by the fact that he dared to call "Kavkaz-Center" a "mouthpiece of terrorists." The Lutheran Church got involved as well and banned the pastor from conducting service.

Earlier news agencies spread the words of Molari that, in fact, the Finnish government made "Kavkaz-Center" nearly a sacred cow. ...

Middle East Online: Russia, Egypt, Libya: A Kind-Of-Silver Lining

Russia, Egypt, Libya: A kind-of-silver lining


Russia has always looked on at events in the Middle East from afar, shut out of the action, and remains an onlooker today, absorbed by its own problems. Eric Walberg looks at the implications for Russia of the revolutions and no-so-revolutions sweeping the Middle East.


Middle East Online

Russian politics is in turmoil as a result of the uprisings in the Arab world, in particular the Egyptian revolution. Those fed up with an increasingly autocratic political system hope that Russian citizens will be energised, while those who came out on top following the collapse of the Soviet Union are quick to dismiss any implications for the Russian political scene.

The official Russian reluctance to embrace the winds of change in the Middle East contrasts with the reaction of the rest of the world and speaks volumes about the real state of Russian politics. While the invasion of Libya revived the spectre of British/ French/ Italian/ US imperialism on Africa’s north coast – hardly ...
