Ingush-Ossetian Relations Show Signs of Improvement

Publication: North Caucasus Analysis 
September 27, 2010 05:27 PM 

On December 17, Ingushetia’s President Yunus-bek Yevkurov and the head of North Ossetia, Taimuraz Mamsurov, signed an agreement on developing good-neighborly relations between the two republics. The agreement stipulates a plan of joint actions for the republican governments and government controlled civil organizations in 2010. Drawing on the importance of the agreements, Yevkurov stated it was a landmark day in the history of both peoples –the Ingush and the Ossetians (, December 17). The well-known liberal Russian economist Andrei Illarionov rated the agreement between Yevkurov and Mamsurov as the most important event in domestic Russian politics in 2009 (Independent Information Center, December 29).

The agreement aims to end the longstanding tensions between Ingushetia and North Ossetia over the disputed Prigorodny district of North Ossetia and its capital Vladikavkaz. The Ingush side laid claims to territory in neighboring North Ossetia that once belonged to Ingushetia, and the dispute finally erupted into large scale violence ...

FP: What China Learned From Vladimir Putin

posted by eagle on as ANALYSIS / OPINION

Posted By Steve LeVine  

Call it the Georgia lesson. In 2008, Russia informed the United States and the rest of the West that the former Soviet Caucasus and Central Asia were no longer their playland, but rather Moscow's sovereign sphere of influence. How did it do so? By going to war with Georgia.

Now we have China informing Japan -- and the rest of Asia -- that the Diaoyu Islands in the East China Sea are its territory in which to fish and whatever else it wishes. Like Russia, Beijing did so by demonstrating that it was prepared to go to almost any extreme -- in this case short of war, but including the crippling of several Japanese industries -- to press its territorial claim. This includes rights over the big oil and gas reserves in the islands. Today Japan blinked. After this, will Japan continue the presumption that it is in charge of what it calls the Senkaku islands? Not if it wishes ...

American Thinker: Strange Coziness With Neo-Soviet Russia

Strange Coziness with neo-Soviet Russia

By Kim Zigfeld

"Josef Stalin of Russia and Adolf Hitler of Germany signed two Memorandum of Understandings (MoUs) [sic] outlining their military relationship that notes shared threats and similar challenges as also placing defense cooperation as a cornerstone of broader relations."

You probably wouldn't be surprised to learn that such a press release had appeared in the early days of World War II, would you?

But what if I were to tell you that this press release came out last week, and that I replaced the words "Joseph Stalin" with "Vladimir Putin," "Adolph Hitler" with "Barack Obama," and "Germany" with "the United States"?. Would you be surprised then?

Well, that's exactly what I did.

Last week, Obama signed a pact with Putin outlining America's military relationship with Russia, recognizing shared threats and similar challenges and placing defense cooperation as a cornerstone of broader relations.

You know Vladimir Putin, of course. He's the fellow who continues to arrest opposition politicians, including former deputy prime ministers and their staff, and to assault ...

Jamestown Foundation: Is The Kremlin Announcement A New Drive To Suppress Government Critics?

Is the Kremlin Announcement a new Drive to Suppress Government Critics?

Publication: North Caucasus Analysis 
September 21, 2010 05:04 PM 

On February 27, President Dmitry Medvedev made a surprise trip to the North Caucasus, visiting Nalchik in Kabardino-Balkaria and Cherkessk in the neighboring republic of Karachaevo-Cherkessia. The Russian president reiterated that the government remains concerned about the situation in the North Caucasus. Recognizing the growing number of insurgents in the region, Medvedev stated in Kabardino-Balkaria that the extremist forces "have spread like tumors.” In Karachaevo-Cherkessia he called for a steady fight against the extremists, without "hysteria” (RIA Novosti, February 27). President Medvedev has now visited all of the North Caucasian republics with the exception of small and relatively peaceful Adygea.

Earlier this month, the Russian Supreme Court reminded the public about the seriousness of destabilization in the North Caucasus when it took an unexpected step of proclaiming the Caucasus Emirate a terrorist organization and officially outlawed it on February 8. As Russian law provides for those accused of ...

Window on Eurasia: Military Pensioners in 12 Russian Cities Call for Putin’s Ouster

Paul Goble 

Staunton, September 24 – Last weekend, Russian military retirees and their families took part in demonstrations in 12 cities of the Volga-Ural military district both to call attention to their plight and to advance political demands, including calls for internal troops not to obey orders to use force against the people and for the dismissal of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
As organizers pointed out, "the official media” in Moscow "modestly kept quiet” about these protests, and details about them are only now coming to light in the blogosphere, on some regional sites, and on opposition portals in the Russian capital (,, and
Organizers of the meetings, which attracted 400 people in Ulyanovsk and smaller numbers in the other cities, pointed out that "military personnel are a special part of the civilian population of the country … people who have consciously chosen their fate to defend their country and their ...
