By: Rafael Fernández de Castro* and Margarita Zavala**
This article was translated from Spanish by the Mexico Institute. Also in Spanish (See below)

No Palace Coup in Sight for Russia 

1 Share
President Vladimir Putin maintains strong support in Russia. Gennady Timchenko, whom the US Treasury Department has described as someone whose ‘activities in the energy sector have been closely linked to President Vladimir Putin,’ said: “We have encountered certain difficulties because of sanctions, but they are negligible when compared with the country’s goals. It is naive to think that with such methods anyone will scare us or force us to retreat,” apparently admitting that there is a cohesive group surrounding Putin. Furthermore, 85% of Russians approve of Putin’s policies according to a survey released in July last year. The article also quotes Yevgeny Minchenko, Director of the International Institute of Political Expertise, as saying: “Toppling Putin from the top is impossible given the present level of public support for the President.”

Crimean Tatars: Back to the Past

In 1944, on Stalin’s orders, the Crimean Tatar people were deported from Crimea to Central Asia in the space of three days. According to analyst Alexander Podrabinek, seventy years later, the Russian authorities are still putting pressure, if not on the entire Crimean Tatar people, then at least on their most prominent representatives, by banning leaders of the Crimean Tatar assembly (or Mejlis)Mustafa Dzhemilev and Refat Chubarov from entering Russia.

Russia's Eurasian vision contest 

1 Share
Putin's long-term vision is to build a rival EU - or an EAU, the Eurasian Union trade zone
The escalating conflict in Ukraine between the western-backed government and Russian-backed separatists has focused attention on a fundamental question: what are the Kremlin's long-term objectives? Though the Russian president Vladimir Putin's immediate goal may have been limited to regaining control of Crimea and retaining some influence in Ukrainian affairs, his longer-term ambition is much bolder.
That ambition is not difficult to discern. Putin once famously observed that the Soviet Union's collapse was the greatest catastrophe of the 20th century. Thus, his long-term objective has been to rebuild it in some form, perhaps as a supra-national union of member states like the European Union.
