Window on Eurasia: Tensions between Russia and Ukraine Reflect Different Attitudes to History, State and Individual, Kyiv’s Ambassador to Moscow Says

Paul Goble

Bloomsburg, November 10 – Tensions between the Russian and Ukrainian governments are “not an argument between colonizers and the enslaved” but rather a dispute between those who see the state and its continuity as more important than the individual and liberals who put their faith in individuals and society, according to Ukraine’s ambassador in Moscow.
That division, Konstantin Grishchenko argues in the current issue of “Zerkalo Nedeli,” falls “not along the line of state borders,” of course, “but within both Ukrainian and Russian society. [The two countries are] not so dissimilar in that, [but] they are different “in the proportion of supporters of the first and second sets of values” (
“Rational” people, the Ukrainian diplomat says, “cannot but be surprised that such questions of a humanitarian nature ...

DW: Does Russia Really Want An Eye For An Eye?

Does Russia really want an eye for an eye?

As 2009 draws to an end, time is ticking for Russia's constitutional court to reach a decision on capital punishment. As it stands the moratorium on the death penalty is due to expire with the dawning of the New Year.

It's a thorny issue, or so the polls would suggest. Recent surveys hold that up to 80 percent of Russians are in favor of a return to state-ordered execution, a practise which has been kept at bay for the past decade by a legally-binding document.

The 1999 moratorium on the death penalty was a condition of Russia becoming a member of the Council of Europe. And although the Council would have preferred out-and-out abolition, it agreed to the suspension on the grounds that Moscow commit to ratifying a protocol which would completely outlaw capital punishment.

This, the Russian Federation has so far failed to do.

UPDATE 1-N. Caucasus strife is Russia's top problem-Kremlin

11.12.09, 09:05 AM EST 

By Guy Faulconbridge and Denis Dyomkin

MOSCOW, Nov 12 (Reuters) - Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Thursday warned the Russian elite that an upsurge of violence in the Muslim-dominated North Caucasus had become Russia's single biggest domestic problem.

The patchwork of republics along Russia's southern flank have seen a wave of attacks in recent months, which local leaders say are fuelled by a potent mixture of clan feuds, poverty, Islamism and heavy-handed tactics by law enforcement agencies.

Medvedev, in his state of the nation speech to lawmakers, officials and religious leaders, said Russia would continue to fight international terrorists and 'bandits' in the region.

His comments were the starkest yet by any senior official about the fast-deteriorating situation in the southern republics. Security experts say a wave of suicide bombings there could spread to Moscow if not checked.

The Kremlin chief also issued a public ...

Window On Eurasia: Russian Nationalists Urged To Arm Themselves To Defend ’Russian Order'

Window on Eurasia: Russian Nationalists Urged to Arm Themselves to Defend ’Russian Order'

Paul Goble

Vienna, November 5 – Those taking part in the Russian March in Moscow yesterday – an officially authorized demonstration which organizers claimed attracted 7,000 people but which observers said included only about 700 – were given written instructions on how to acquire guns so that they would be able to defend what nationalist speakers called “the Russian order.”
Such calls in the increasingly overheated atmosphere of the Russian capital given the availability of guns of all kinds there are inherently provocative and could prompt their opponents among non-Russians to arm themselves in response, provide a justification for the authorities to crack down on the nationalists, or, quite possibly, do both.
And while there is as yet no Russian media reporting that Russian nationalist groups who organized similar marches on the Day of National Unity in dozens ...

Ingush Skeptical About Plan to Resettle Unemployed Countrymen in Sverdlovsk

Publication: Eurasia Daily Monitor 
November 4, 2009 

President Yunus-Bek Yevkurov

On October 30, Ingushetia’s President Yunus-Bek Yevkurov announced the imminent launch of a program for voluntarily resettling unemployed people in his republic in Sverdlovsk oblast, which lies on the Eastern slopes of the Middle and North Urals and the Western Siberian Plain. In an interview with the newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta, President Yevkurov stated that representatives of several dozens of Ingush families were heading to Sverdlovsk oblast to see how it works for them. Each of the new settlers in the Urals will receive 54,000 rubles ($2,000). Yevkurov also said that he considered other regions in Siberia and Russia’s Far East for the same purpose (Rossiyskaya Gazeta, October 30).

In the same interview, Yevkurov revealed that official statistics had miscalculated unemployment in Ingushetia –putting it at 18 percent while, according to Yevkurov, the real rate ...
