North Caucasus Weekly: Final Settlement Of North Ossetian-Ingush Conflict Is Tied To Peace In Ingushetia

Final Settlement of North Ossetian-Ingush Conflict is tied to Peace in Ingushetia

Publication: North Caucasus Weekly 
May 29, 2009 05:30 PM 

In a surprising statement, Ingush President Yunus-Bek Yevkurov said that violence in the republic was rooted in the unresolved Ingush-Ossetian territorial dispute. To stabilize the situation in the republic, Yevkurov promised that all displaced persons from North Ossetia would go back to their homes. According to the president, a total return of Ingush refugees to North Ossetia would deprive the Islamic insurgents of an important card (Rosbalt, May 25).

Since 2007, Moscow has claimed that the Ossetian-Ingush conflict of 1992 has been effectively resolved. While the North Ossetian side, as well as the previous, unpopular Ingush president, Murat Zyazikov, readily subscribed to this assertion, Ingush civil activists have insisted that the conflict and its consequences still needed to be dealt with. By bringing up the issue of the Ingush refugees, Yevkurov is implying Moscow’s declaration that the Ossetian-Ingush conflict has been resolved was not truthful and that ...

Window on Eurasia: A New ‘Model’ of Russia Said Emerging among People Beyond the Urals

Paul Goble

Vienna, May 28 – A new “model” of Russia “is being developed not by political technologists in the capital but is arising spontaneously in the provinces” as “an inter-regional project” of Turkic peoples, according to one commentary, and among young people in Siberia and the Russian Far East, according to another.
In an essay posted on the portal today, Stepan Savin focuses on the very different meanings of the new film, “The Secret of Chingiz Khan” for “cosmopolitan and pragmatic Moscow” and for the residents of Yakutsk, Ulan-Bator, Irkutsk, Kyzyl, Ufa and Kazan who saw it first (
“The sources and component parts” of this film, he writes, involve a rethinking for people in the latter places today of “the cultural inheritance of the peoples of Central Asia and Siberia” which is not likely to strike Moscow viewers who in any case now view film as a form ...

Window on Eurasia: Economic Crisis Leads Moscow to Cut Back on 2010 Census Plans

Paul Goble

Vienna, May 28 – The economic crisis is forcing Moscow to cut back on the number of questions they will ask and languages they will use in the census scheduled for October 2010, reductions that will mean officials and scholars will have significantly less data on a range of demographic questions.
Irina Zbarskaya, the Russian State Statistics Committee official responsible for the census, said this week that the government had reduced the amount of money available for the census by 30 percent despite pleases by census officials who “attempted to show that the census is ‘a sacred cow’ which must not be touched” (
Instead of the “long” and “short” forms of the census questionnaire, she said, census takers will now use only one, which will not include many questions that take the most time because people find them the most difficult to answer and census takers find the most ...

The Other Russia: Who Is Mister Medvedev?

posted by eagle on as ANALYSIS / OPINION

Who is Mister Medvedev?

In the wake of Russian President Dmitri Medvedev’s first year in office, Russia’s pundits have discussed the changes in Russia’s political system at length.  Many have pointed to certain steps taken by Medvedev -such as meeting with human rights activists and granting an interview to the openly critical Novaya Gazeta newspaper- which seem to indicate that a liberalization is on the horizon.  Questioning this conclusion, commentator Irina Pavlova compares these fleeting signals with actions taken on Medvedev’s watch that have already had a profound effect on Russia’s future.  The article first ran in the online newspaper.

Who is Mister Medvedev?
May 27, 2009
Irina Pavlova

Plenty has been said and written about the recent anniversary of Dmitri Medvedev’s presidency.  The apologists sing their praises for the appearance of a tandem, seeing in it the signs of a new style of Russian politics and the seed of a future separation of powers.  The critics, both in Russia and the West, conversely lend the heaviest ...

Window on Eurasia: Could United Russia Go the Way of the CPSU?

Paul Goble

Vienna, May 27 – Twenty years to the day after the Congress of Peoples Deputies opened the way to the end of Communist Party of the Soviet Union, a leader of the United Russia Party says his group “does not want to repeat [that] path,” but 48 hours after that, a Petrozavodsk mayoral candidate quit the pro-Kremlin party after accusing it of “bureaucracy” and “hypocrisy.” 
Boris Gryzlov, the chairman of United Russia’s Higher Council of the Parliamentary majority, said his party “had never feared and does not now fear competition. Just the reverse,” he continued, we develop it wherever possible because the example of the CPSU is before all our eyes, and no one wants to repeat it” (
“The view that United Russia is not interested in strong competitors,” he was quoted by “Gazeta” as saying, “is a superficial approach. In fact, the strengthening of the party system of Russia is ...
