Window on Eurasia: Separatism Remains Strong in Tuva
Paul Goble

Vienna, June 29 – Tuva, a republic wedged between Russia, China and Mongolia that is known mostly to stamp collectors and admirers of the late American mathematician Richard Feynman, continues to have a strongly separatist national movement, in large part a response to the brutal way in which Stalin absorbed it into the Soviet Union during World War II.
In an article posted online last week, commentator Iskander Amanzhol surveys the history of Tuva, devoting particular attention to its relationships with Moscow and Ulan Bator and to the views of the still influential national front whose leaders would like to see their republic become an independent stat (
Part of China until 1912, Tuva was declared a protectorate of the Russian Empire two years later, but in August 1921, at the end of the Russian civil war, Tuva declared itself independent, ...

Window on Eurasia: New Wave of Russian Nationalist Thought Focuses on Nation State, Not Empire
Paul Goble

Vienna, June 29 – A new wave of Russian nationalist thought, one that focuses on the task of creating for the first time a Russian nation state, is gaining strength in the intellectual circles of Moscow, gradually pushing aside the more bombastic and imperialistic imperialism of the Eurasians, according to a new study.
In a 5700-word article in the current issue of “Politichesky klass,” Sergey Sergeyev says that what he calls “the third wave” of contemporary Russian nationalism represents “a return to the old ‘Russophilism’ [of the late Soviet period but] on a new theoretical foundation” and thus rejects the pretensions of Eurasianism (
Sergeyev, who writes frequently on Russian nationalist thought, argues that there have been three “waves” within it since the 1960s. It consisted of two parts: the “legal” which included the ...

Agency Caucasus: 'Tbilisi Looks To Sharing Abkhazia With Russia'

posted by FerrasB on as Imperialism

Moscow - Georgia was panicked into proposing to Russia to share Abkhazia after Russia decided to improve its relations with Abkhazia and South Ossetia in retaliation for Kosovo's declaration of unilateral independence.

The Georgian administration proposed to its Russian counterpart that Tbilisi would be ready to cancel its plans of joining the NATO if it could own the control over southern Abkhazia whilst Moscow could control the northern part of it, the Russian daily Kommersant cited some sources of the Russian Foreign Affairs as claiming. Both Moscow and Tbilisi dismissed the Kommersant claims as being false.

According to the Kommersant claims, Georgia would be able to resume its control over the Kodor Valley, Gal and Ochamchira provinces of Abkhazia.  

The Russian peacekeeping forces which are currently entitled by the Moscow Treaty of 1949 to control both sides of the Inghur River was offered a withdrawal from southern Abkhazia though it could still ...

Estonia, Russia clash on the future of Finno-Ugric peoples
04 Jul 2008
Paul Goble
VIENNA – Estonian and Russian officials clashed over the weekend about the fate of the numerically small but politically sensitive Finno-Ugric nations in the Russian Federation, an exchange "Gazeta" said was the first "international scandal" in Dmitry Medvedev's presidency and one that points to more problems ahead for these officials and their peoples.

In the course of the World Finno-Ugric Congress, Medvedev met with the presidents of Estonia, Finland and Hungary, the three independent Finno-Ugric states. His meetings with the leaders of Finland and Hungary reportedly went well, but his session with Estonia's president Toomas Hendrik Ilves clearly did not.

Medvedev suggested that the two discuss "the remarkable number of problems" in the relations between Russia and Estonia, to which Ilves responded, speaking English rather than Estonian, that it would be a good thing if "the public rhetoric" surrounding their ...

SCANDAL. Estonians demonstratively leave congress in Khanty-Mansiysk
Publication time: 29 June 2008, 11:03

The Estonian delegation headed by the country's President, Toomas Hendrik Ilves, has left a forum for Finno-Ugric nations in protest at comments made by the Chairman of Russian Duma's (Parliament's) International Affairs Committee, Konstantin Kosachev, who said that Estonia's ethnic policies are "unprincipled".

"One can't be solving problems in such a way, so that they affect the aggravation of ethnic conflicts," Russian official said when he was complaining about the behavior of European Parliament when supporting the Estonian authorities.

"It is pure politics. Unlike other states on former territories of our country, Russia has no need in special policies towards various ethnic groups. We have no problem with people of different ethnicities getting along with one another and living in a good-neighborly relations," Kosachev said.

At that moment the entire Estonian delegation headed by the country's President got up from the parterre ...
