Window on Eurasia: Cossack Old Believers in Kazakhstan Plan to Exchange Russian Citizenship for Belarusian to Protest Moscow’s Policies

Paul Goble

Vienna, March 10 – More than 500 Cossack Old Believers have announced plans to surrender their Russian citizenship and seek Belarusian citizenship instead in order to protest Moscow’s failure to live up to its promises to provide them with the support they need to resettle in rural Cossack communities in Tomsk oblast.
According to’s Sofia Mikitik, citing a report by Sergey Britvin, a journalist who works with the Independent Slavic Correspondent Center, the Russian government in early 2008 had approved their resettlement in the Asinovsk district of that oblast but has now reneged on its promises (
A small group of Cossack Old Believers from Kazakhstan visited Tomsk but after waiting months for promised housing and being forced to live in "half-destroyed” buildings, they returned. Angered by that betrayal, ...

Window on Eurasia: Kaliningrad Protests Force Health Minister to Resign, Sparking Speculation about Boos’ Future

Paul Goble

Vienna, March 10 – Yesterday, Elena Lyuikova, the Kaliningrad health minister, retired "at her own request,” according to Russian media, but because local political activists had staged 63 demonstrations over the last 18 months calling for her resignation, they see it as a major victory by them and the people of that region over the oblast government.
And while the Patriots of Russia party reacted by saying that they hoped Lyuikova’s departure would leading the Kaliningrad government to reverse course on its policy of closing medical facilities, others in that non-contiguous part of the Russian Federation and further afield are already speculating about the impact of this on the wave of demonstrations there.
On the one hand, some are implying that by making this concession, along with other steps to restrict the size of ...

Window on Eurasia: Few Russians Opt to Declare Their Nationality in the Russian Military, Commentator Says

Paul Goble

Vienna, March 6 – When soldiers are asked to voluntarily list their nationality in military documents, a retired Russian officer says, "no more than five to seven percent” declare themselves to be Russians, even though that is what they are, thus raising the question "why do these boys not want to declare their nationality?”
In the current issue of the journal of the Russian military-industry sector, Lt. Col. (ret.) Roman Ilyushchenko says that they don’t feel the need to do so, which means that "neither in school nor at home has anyone forced them to reflect over the simple questions: who are you, who is part of your family, and where do your roots extend?”
And he suggests that this lack of a sense of identity "violates all the traditions and principles of ...

NatPress: Russian Official Suggests Fingerprinting Entire North Caucasus

posted by eagle on as Imperialism

05 March 2010 – NatPress.Net 

A Russian official has proposed compiling a database containing the fingerprints of the entire population of Russia's volatile North Caucasus region, RFE/RL's North Caucasus Service reports.

Aleksandr Bastrykin, the head of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Prosecutor-General's Office, also proposed on March 4 the reregistration of all motor vehicles in the North Caucasus and issuance of new license plates.

He said such measures would help "stabilize" the situation in the region.

Bastrykin further advocated issuing firearms to all employees of the prosecutor's office branches in the republics of the North Caucasus.

Veteran human rights campaigner Lyudmila Alekseyeva criticized the fingerprinting proposal as "discriminatory."

Such practices are "unacceptable in a civilized country," the "Caucasian Knot" website quoted her as saying.

Chechen Republic leader Ramzan Kadyrov's spokesman, Alvi Kerimov, argued that if fingerprinting was introduced, it should be mandatory throughout the Russian Federation and not just in the North Caucasus.

Murderer of Ingush Oppositionist Gets 2 Years House Arrest

In a grave setback for relatives of slain Ingush oppositionist Magomed Yevloyev, the Ingush High Court decided on Tuesday to significantly lighten the sentence of the oppositionist’s killer.

Ibragim Yevloyev, of no relation to his victim, was the former police officer sentenced late last year to two years in a penal colony for what was ruled to be the "accidental” killing of Magomed Yevloyev.

Relatives of the slain opposition leader had filed a complaint on December 11, 2009, demanding that the court give Yevloyev a harsher sentence. They maintain that Yevloyev was murdered intentionally, and his father, Yakhya Yevloyev, has been particularly outspoken. In a December interview with, Yakhya asserted that the light sentence had been a result of pressure on the judge from former Internal Minister Musa Medov, an uncle of the accused officer.

"Judge Tumgoyev admitted to me that Medov called and ...
