Window on Eurasia: Tatar Children’s Book on Conquest of Kazan in 1552 Outrages Russian

Paul Goble

Vienna, August 9 – A Tatar author’s richly illustrated children’s book on Ivan the Terrible’s conquest of Kazan in 1552 that asserts Tatarstan’s “struggle for the restoration of independence continues in our day” has prompted a Russian activist to demand that Moscow intervene to ban the book for “falsifying history to the detriment of Russia.”
On the “Svobodnaya pressa” website at the end of last week, Yan Stashkevich says that “children’s literature in Tatarstan is teaching that the Russian state is a mob of marauders, thieves and usurpers” and that the Tatar’s “struggle for the restoration of independence” has never ended (
And the Moscow journalist adds that this case is “not about ignoring the role of the Red Army in the victory over fascism and not about the revision of the results of the ...

Window on Eurasia: Russia’s Indigenous Minorities Organize to Resist Moscow’s Policies

Paul Goble

Vienna, August 7 – Russia’s numerically small indigenous peoples of the North, Siberia and the Far East are marking the International Day of Indigenous Peoples this weekend with expressions of concern about the ways in which Moscow’s policies threaten their survival and with efforts at creating organizations to resist those policies by attracting support from abroad.
In recent years, the leaders of these communities say, Russian government policy has taken away “the means of existence” from the roughly 250,000 members of these communities even while Moscow continues to “proudly” but falsely claim in international for a that it supports them (
Changes in Russian legislation to allow for commercial exploitation of the natural wealth of the regions where these communities have lived “from time immemorial,” the leaders of these small and dispersed ethnic groups say, have “taken the ...

STRATFOR: The Geopolitics of Russia: Permanent Struggle

The Geopolitics of Russia: Permanent Struggle

October 15, 2008 | 1847 GMT
Russian monograph

Editor’s Note: This is the fourth in a series of monographs on the geopolitics of countries that are currently critical in world affairs.

Russia’s defining characteristic is its indefensibility. Unlike the core of most states that are relatively defensible, core Russia is limited to the region of the medieval Grand Principality of Muscovy. It counts no rivers, oceans, swamps or mountains marking its borders — it relies solely on the relatively inhospitable climate and its forests for defense. Russian history is a chronicle of the agony of surviving invasion after invasion.

Traditionally these invasions have come from two directions. The first is from the steppes — wide open grasslands that connect Russia to Central Asia and beyond — the path that the ...

Window On Eurasia: Moscow State Branches In Former Republics Reflect Rather Than Change Bilateral Ties, Russian Scholar Says

Window on Eurasia: Moscow State Branches in Former Republics Reflect Rather than Change Bilateral Ties, Russian Scholar Says

Paul Goble

Vienna, August 6 – A Kremlin plan to use branches of Moscow State University in former Soviet republics in order to enhance Moscow’s influence has not yet proven its worth, with each of the four established so far reflecting rather that modifying bilateral ties between the countries involved, according to a Moscow professor.
In an interview posted on this week, Anna Arkhangelskaya, an instructor at MSU’s philosophy faculty, says that the Kremlin’s plan over the last ten years to use the MSU “brand” to attract students and hence win over the political elites in the non-Russian republics has not worked out as intended (
Saying she is “absolutely certain” that those “at the highest levels” of the Russian state decided to promote the opening of such branches for “political” reasons, ...

Window On Eurasia: Georgian War Led Russians To Support Self-Determination Over Territorial Integrity For ‘Unrecognized Republics'

Window on Eurasia: Georgian War Led Russians to Support Self-Determination over Territorial Integrity for ‘Unrecognized Republics'

Paul Goble

Vienna, August 5 – Many commentators speculated that Moscow’s recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia in the wake of Russia’s military action in geography might prompt non-Russians especially in the North Caucasus to invoke the principle of the right of nations to self-determination and press their case for independence.
In the last 12 months, there has been relatively little evidence that the Georgia war led to any such transformation of opinion among those groups, but a new poll, released in Moscow yesterday, suggests that the events of August 2008 did have a significant impact on the thinking of many Russians about self-determination, at least beyond the borders of their country.
According to the results of a poll conducted by the All-Russian Center for the Study of Public Opinion (VTsIOM), an agency with close ...
