Putin Commits Himself to ‘Novorossiya’ 

1 Share
Staunton, August 29 – Given how often Vladimir Putin lies, it may be a mistake to make too much of any of his statements as an indication of where he is heading. But his use of the term “Novorossiya” in his statement yesterday, the first time he has talked about that space within Ukraine as a contemporary issue, is worrisome.
That is because it suggests that the Kremlin leader is doubling down on his invasion of Ukraine and plans to create a Transdniestria-like “partially recognized state” and “frozen conflict” in a large swath of southeastern Ukraine regardless of Ukrainian and international opposition to his aggression.
According to Ekho Moskvy journalist Vladimir Varfolomeyev, a search of the records of Putin’s official statements shows that Putin has used the term “Novorossiya” only once before, in the course of his conversation with Russian citizens, and did so explicitly in terms of history rather than current events.
On that earlier occasion, Putin said that Novorossiya included Kharkov, Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson, Nikolayev and Odessa, areas that he said “were not included within Ukraine in tsarist times” but “handed over to Ukraine in the 1920s by the Soviet government. Why they did this, God alone knows,” the Kremlin leader said.
But as a result of that Soviet action, the “victories of Potemkin and Catherine II” were ignored and Novorossiya disappeared. “For various reasons, these territories disappeared,” Putin said, but the people there remained.”
(Although the Ekho Moskvy commentator does not point this out and Putin certainly does not stress, tsarist Russia was not divided into ethnic republics. There were Ukrainians and Georgians and Uzbeks, among others, but there as not a Ukraine or a Georgia or an Uzbekistan as an officially recognized entity.)
Now, as Varfolomeyev points out, unlike in his Putin’s April remarks, “’Novorossiya’ has been transformed from a subject of historical interest into a subject of policy. If of course,” the Ekho Moskvy commentator adds, “words today still have any meaning,” given Putin’s cavalier treatment of the truth.
Other Moscow commentators are also discussing the meaning of Putin’s attachment to the idea of “Novorossiya.” One of the most thoughtful observations is provided by Vitaly Portnikov, who suggests that Putin sees Novorossiya as something he can seize and then create the kind of state he wants more generally.
The Moscow commentator says that Putin in some ways is like Stalin but in other ways is not. Like Stalin, he works at night at least when it comes to Ukraine, but he does this not because he prefers to sleep during the day as Stalin did, Portnikov says, but rather “simply because then Obama isn’t sleeping.”
But unlike Stalin, he continues, Putin didn’t take Russia away from his rivals but was handed it by his predecessor in order to save it. Novorossiya offers Putin a chance to seize something and thus make it his own in the way that Stalin made Soviet Russia his own via collectivization, the purges and war.
“Therefore,” Portnikov says, “for Putin, the first real country is not Russia but Novorossiya. He has taken it out of the hands of its own population and is now creating it according to his own image,” one that involves a situation in which “it is possible to shoot, kill and torture without punishment.”
“It is certain,” the commentator continues, that Putin “already feels himself president of both these countries … enormous Russia” which he did not seize earlier and “little Novorossiya” which he is in the process of taking and in which he is showing exactly what kind of a regime he would like to extend to Russia.
But Portnikov says, Putin is mistaken in this. “In Russia he really is president,” but “in Novorossiya, he is a night porter.” And “there where in battles and tortures is being creating the ideal Putinist Russia, he is not present.” But in some ways that makes his obsession with Novorossiya even more disturbing than as an occasion of military aggression.
That is because, the commentator says, it shows exactly what he wants to do in Russia itself and in any other territories he can, like Stalin, “take away” from someone else.

Putin Commits Himself to ‘Novorossiya’

Some US Lawmakers Seek Vote on Military Action Against Islamic State 

1 Share
President Barack Obama says members of Congress, who are not in session this month, will not be left out of any major decisions on U.S. policy toward the Islamic State militant group in Iraq and Syria. Some lawmakers are calling for Congress to debate and hold a vote on any expanded military action when members return in September. A small but bipartisan group of lawmakers is calling for Congress to debate and vote on whether or not to authorize President Obama to expand U.S. military operations against Islamic State targets in Iraq, or perhaps even across the border in Syria. One of them is Republican Congressman Walter Jones of North Carolina, who spoke to VOA on Friday. "You might know that I joined [Democratic Representatives] Jim McGovern and Barbara Lee in writing a letter to Speaker [John] Boehner asking him that we have a debate on the floor of the House and a resolution saying to the president that any expansion of our military in Iraq or any part of the country that he must come to Congress to ask for support," he said. The administration has already authorized surveillance flights over Syria, and some Republican lawmakers are calling on the president to come up with a comprehensive strategy to not just deter the Islamic State, but to defeat the Sunni extremist group before it threatens the U.S. homeland. Some Republicans seized on a comment the president made Thursday of not yet having a strategy to counter the Islamic militants, calling it worrisome. Obama explained that he is working out a strategy with his top military advisers and U.S. allies. He said congressional action would be premature at this point. "We need to make sure that we’ve got clear plans, that we’re developing them," he said. "At that point, I will consult with Congress and make sure that their voices are heard.  But there’s no point in me asking for action on the part of Congress before I know exactly what it is that is going to be required for us to get the job done." The president signaled that Congress will have plenty of time to be involved when members return on September 8.  But since there are midterm congressional elections coming up in November, some members may be reluctant to cast a vote on more U.S. military action in the Middle East. Democratic Representative Kathy Castor says, "I don't have much faith that the GOP leadership in the House will actually have a debate, notwithstanding a vote." Congressman Jones said the U.S. Constitution requires Congress to authorize the use of the U.S. military and that Americans are weary of war after the years of conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan. "Why in the world are we always trying to go into some other country and protect those people instead of protecting our own people?  I am not an isolationist, but I understand one thing, when we cannot secure our own borders then we got our problems right here in America," he said. President Obama said members of Congress will definitely need to be involved, with lawmakers needed to authorize funding for U.S. military strikes against the Islamic State.

Ukraine crisis: Putin's nuclear threats are a struggle for pride and status

1 Share
"Thank God, I think no one is thinking of unleashing a large-scale conflict with Russia. I want to remind you that Russia is one of the leading nuclear powers."
The delivery is always calm. One writer has described Mr Putin's classic impassive face as the look of a horse lowering its nose into a bag of oats.
Yet the language is explosive: don't mess with us, we're a nuclear power.
To an outsider looking in, this is the language of North Korea – or a hint of Cold War times and Nikita Khrushchev telling western ambassadors, "We will bury you."
The words Khrushchev used to preface that phrase are just as telling: "Whether you like it or not, history is on our side."
Everything that Mr Putin does and says today – over Ukraine, over Syria and Iraq, over relations with Europe and the United States – reeks of a struggle for pride and status.
Increasingly through his 14 years at the country's helm, Mr Putin has exuded resentment over the West's refusal to acknowledge Russia's greatness – its own path, its own truth, its own "sovereign" democracy and its own cherished past of triumphs, of victories over foreign incursion and duplicity.
Through this prism, the West's decision to expand Nato, to march into Central Asia after 9/11, to boost an insolent Georgia and a recalcitrant Ukraine; these were yet more attempts to deny Moscow's right as a leader and hegemon, at least in her own backyard.
Inside the motherland, this sense of wounded ego and defiance plays well, to many.
Russians have long had an ambivalent attitude to outsiders. In one view, they are knowing sophisticates. A shopkeeper in Nikolai Gogol's Dead Souls hung a sign outside his door saying "Foreigner" in order to improve his image. In another view, steeped in Soviet times, they are connivers and wreckers.
Mr Putin plays well to the second gallery. His masterstroke is to present Russia as a besieged fortress, the cannonballs of western aggression and hypocrisy bouncing off its walls. It was no mistake this week that as Moscow jousted with the US and Europe over Ukraine crisis, Russian officials announced a nationwide audit of bomb shelters.
The odd mention of Russia's coiled might – a few powder kegs in the castle basement – is a useful reassurance amid this paranoia.
It also keeps the adversary on edge. The sequence of Mr Putin's statements seem often designed to keep his opponents on unstable legs, never quite comprehending his true intentions: on Thursday a stony silence as the West accused him of invading Ukraine; on Friday morning a magnanimous request to free encircled Ukrainian troops and "return them to their mothers"; on Friday afternoon, a casual reminder of nuclear threat.
Yet Lilia Shevtsova, a Russian political scientist with a forensic insight into the Kremlin, says Mr Putin is neither bellicose nor irrational, despite sending troops into a neighbouring country.
Instead, having turned containment of the West in Ukraine into a means of mobilising Russians around their leader, he knows a cold fact: personal disaster looms in case of defeat.
"What we have in Ukraine is a battle by a declining but ever more desperately aggressive authoritarianism against a hostile civilisation," argues Ms Shevtsova.
"Retreat," she wrote this week, "would be tantamount to suicide."
