Window on Eurasia: Will the CIS Become a Collateral Victim of Russian Aggression?
Paul Goble

Vienna, August 12 – Georgian President Mihkiel Saakashvili said today that Georgia will “finally” leave the Russian-dominated Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) as a way of underscoring that “the USSR will never again return.” And he called on Ukraine and other countries which are now members to do the same.
Saakashvili’s statement came in an emotional address to his country’s parliament during which he also labeled Russian troops in Abkhazia and South Ossetia “occupation forces” ( Given recent events, Saakashvili’s remarks come as no surprise, but they call attention to something Moscow has been reluctant to acknowledge.
Not only have Russian actions called into question Moscow’s insistence that it can be an honest broker in regional disputes and that it will operate within the principles of international law, but these actions have highlighted the new reality ...

The Guardian: Kremlin Eyes Internet Control ...

A brother had sent us the following:
The Russian government is looking to create a Cyrillic internet, but is it just another case of Big Brother controlling its citizens?

The Russian government is looking to create a Cyrillic internet, but is it just another case of Big Brother controlling its citizens?

The Guardian, Thursday January 3 2008


The growing cold war with Russia has a new front besides oil fields and undersea territorial claims: the internet. Russia's government is pushing for greater control over the Russian-language part of the net - and its aim seems to be to create a web that operates in Cyrillic, completely independent from the wider web.

The problem for Russia is that its top-level domain - with the ASCII suffix .ru - translates into Cyrillic as .py, the domain name of Paraguay. That could pose security problems for Russian users. Kim Davies, who controls the ...

Article history

Russia said today that South Ossetia and Abkhazia were unlikely to want to remain part of the Georgia as the war of words between Washington and Moscow grew more heated.

The Russian president, Dmitry Medvedev, said he respected the principle of territorial integrity but "after what happened, it's unlikely Ossetians and Abkhazians will ever be able to live together with Georgia in one state".

In Washington, George Bush demanded Moscow honour a commitment to get out of Georgia, declaring the country had chosen democracy and "we won't cast them aside". He said Georgia's integrity and sovereignty must be respected and that a contentious relationship with the US was not in Moscow's best interests. "Bullying ...

The Guardian: Whose Imperialism Is Worse?

Whose imperialism is worse?
By seeing a narrative of western imperialism in the Caucasus, Seumas Milne tramples on the principle of democratic self-determination

David Clark

David Clark, Friday August 15 2008 18:00 BST

Article history

Anyone familiar with my writings over the last few years will know that I share many of the premises behind the argument set out by Seumas Milne yesterday. America's conduct of the war on terror, enthusiastically abetted by the United Kingdom, has degraded the moral authority of the west. The Iraq war was a self-interested geopolitical misadventure dishonestly presented as a security or humanitarian imperative. The willingness of Washington and London to tolerate Israel's disproportionate military action against Lebanon in 2006 has left them wide open to the charge of hypocrisy in their response to the war in Georgia.

This is where agreement ends, for I can't let Milne's argument go without pointing out a couple of important errors of ...

August 15, 2008 — Russia has been justifying its rampage through Georgia as a "peacekeeping" operation to end the Tbilisi government's "genocide" and "ethnic cleansing" of South Ossetia. That terminology deliberately echoes U.S. and NATO language during their 1999 bombing campaign against Serbia, which resulted in the independence of Kosovo. Essentially, it's payback time for a grievance that Russia has borne against the West for nine years. The Russians are relying on the conceit that Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili is today's equivalent of ...
