The Latest: Greek banks to reopen to let pensioners get cashATHENS, Greece (AP) - The latest news on Greece's financial woes on a day a big repayment to the International Monetary Fund is due and the country's bailout program with European creditors ends (all times local): 10.42 a.m.
Oklahoma, Florida move quickly to resume lethal injectionsOKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma and Florida moved quickly to resume lethal injections after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the use of midazolam, a sedative that has been used in several problematic executions. Attorneys general in both states asked courts Monday to allow executions to proceed, just hours after the high court voted 5-4 in a case from Oklahoma that midazolam can be used in executions without violating the Eighth Amendment prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment.
Convicted killer thought fellow escapee was slowing him downPLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - Two convicted killers who staged a complicated prison break together and then spent more than two weeks roaming in thick New York woods finally split up when one man decided his companion was slowing him down, going their separate ways a few days before one was shot and the other captured, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. Authorities believe David Sweat, 35, and Richard Matt, 49, traveled mostly at night and managed to procure food, a gun and other supplies from hunting camps and seasonal cabins before splitting up about five days ago as they tried to elude a massive manhunt.
Indonesia military transport plane crashes in Medan; 20 deadJAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) - An Indonesian air force transport plane crashed Tuesday into a residential neighborhood in the country's third-largest city of Medan, killing at least 20 people.

Christie back at high school to announce 2016 runNEWARK, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who spent three years as president of his high school class, is returning to his alma mater to announce he's running for president of his country. The Republican governor is set to launch his campaign Tuesday in the old gymnasium of Livingston High School in the town of Livingston, New Jersey, where he experienced some of his first political victories.

A year after Gaza war, Hamas entrenched as frustration growsGAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) - Emad Firi is angry. During last summer's Israel-Hamas war, a shell slammed through the roof of his house and shredded his right leg. Unable to work, Firi's son now drives his taxi but the family struggles to survive. The 50-year-old blames Israel, but also the Islamic militant group Hamas which has ruled Gaza since a violent takeover in 2007. In the Hamas era, the tiny territory has endured three wars with Israel and a crippling Israeli-Egyptian border blockade that keeps most of its 1.8 million residents trapped.

Crunch time for Greece as IMF debt looms and bailout endsATHENS, Greece (AP) - It's crunch time for Greece, with the European part of its international bailout expiring Tuesday and with it any possible access to the remaining rescue loans that it needs to pay its debts. Without an 11th-hour deal, the government is unlikely to repay a debt of about 1.6 billion euros ($1.9 billion) to the International Monetary Fund also due Tuesday - a move that would amount to default and would increase fears the country could fall out of the euro currency bloc.

As today’s deadline passes, Iran’s foreign minister returns to Vienna with the country’s ailing nuclear chief for a few more intense days of extra time
Today was supposed to be the big day, the deadline for completing a comprehensive and epochal nuclear agreement on the future of Iran’s nuclear programme. But, as with every other deadline along the road to this deal, some wiggle room has been found.
The negotiators now have an extra week or so before they face serious complications imposed by the US Congress, which would undoubtedly be mirrored by the Iranian Majlis. And there is clearly still a lot of work to do. Even if every detail was agreed, diplomats say it would still take a few days to get it down on paper and reviewed by lawyers. And there are still issues that have evidently not been agreed.

France Is Prepared to Supply Advanced Air Defense Infrastructure to Georgia

1 Share
On June 15, during the Paris Air Show in Le Bourget, where important deals for arms supplies are often agreed, Georgia signed its first ever large contract with France on supplies of defense military equipment (Civil Georgia, June 16).
The description of the equipment is quite unclear, since no one, with the exception of a narrow circle of officials, knows exactly what equipment France will supply to Georgia and at what price. The Georgian Ministry of Defense only unveiled a short video and photo from the event with some important details. Georgia’s Defense Minister Tinatin Khidasheli and the CEO of ThalesRaytheonSystems for French operations, Jérôme Bendell, together signed the agreement (Civil Georgia, June 16).
So far, the French government itself has not signed the deal, causing some uncertainty about Paris’s official willingness to allow actual supplies of military equipment to Georgia; but the agreement is still an important sign. ThalesRaytheonSystems (TRS) is a joint venture of the French defense electronics group Thales and US arms maker Raytheon. The company produces a range of ground-based surveillance radars, air defense command-and-control systems, as well as cyber capabilities.
According to unofficial sources, the document signed on June 15 in Le Bourget envisages supplies of radars and other air tracking infrastructure, but not weaponry for striking at air targets. It is noteworthy that the photograph published by the ministry of defense depicts a small replica of what appears to be a TRS-produced GM 200 medium-range multi-missions radar (Civil Georgia, June 16). Minister of Defense Khidasheli told journalists, after signing the agreement, that she would return to Paris again after several weeks to sign another contract. The defense minister thereby signaled that surveillance radars are only part of the infrastructure and equipment that Georgia intends to purchase in France. Khidasheli declined to answer whether the next contract would be signed with the same company or with some other French arms manufacturer. “Information about such types of weapons procurements need to be a top state secret” to prevent the Russian government from learning their details, Khidasheli told reporters from Paris (Civil Georgia, June 16).
Under this well-intentioned pretext of secrecy, the main and most crucial question has remained unanswered: Will the second contract, which will be ready for signing “after several weeks,” allow Georgia to access systems that are not only capable of airspace surveillance, but also of shooting down hostile aerial targets? “Supplying French radars to Georgia is nothing special. Almost immediately after the five-day war with Russia [in August 2008], France supplied dual-purpose radars—that is, ones that can be used for both civilian and military purposes—to our country,” Irakly Aladashvili, the editor-in-chief of the military-analytic journal Arsenali, told Jamestown (Author’s interview, May 20).
After his controversial resignation from government, former Georgian minister of defense Irakly Alasania, who initiated negotiations with French arms manufacturers last summer, stated that the agreement he reached would have been ready to be signed by the end of October 2014. According to Alasania, the proposed contract envisaged the acquisition of “anti-aircraft and anti-missile defense systems.” Alasania said that those systems would have “provided the country with complete security, including protection from Russian short-range SS-26 ‘Iskander’ missiles” (see EDM, April 9, 2015). So at the time, at least, both anti-aircraft and anti-missile systems were being considered. However, the new minister of defense, Tinatin Khidasheli, in her comments before and after signing the June 2015 contract, never mentioned an anti-missile component. She spoke only of anti-aircraft defenses. Meanwhile, Alasania’s mentions of the Iskander missile was not on accident. Russians used it in combat for the first time on August 12, 2008. An Iskander missile armed with a cluster munition exploded at the central square of Gori, a city 29 kilometers from South Ossetia, killing dozens of civilians, including a Dutch cameraman (Interpressnews.ge, August 9, 2010).
It is unclear from Khidasheli’s comments whether the new Georgian contracts with French arms manufacturers will provide Georgia with a missile defense capability. “When the [procurement] is finalized and this [weapons system] is delivered to Georgia, we will have a capacity for the first time that will guarantee our air defense,” she said. “We can say that our air space will be maximally protected. Georgia is buying a type of weapon in use by the leading NATO [North Atlantic Treaty Organization]-member states and is regarded to be one of the most advanced types of air defense infrastructure,” the Georgian defense minister noted (Civil Georgia, June 16).
The Georgian opposition is skeptical about the “Le Bourget deal,” suspecting that the supplied arms will not be quite as potent as the government claims. Therefore, representatives from several parliamentary factions demanded the creation of a so-called “trust group.” According to the law, the ministry of defense is obliged to unveil all details of a defense contract to the members of a parliamentary “trust group” (Interpressnews.ge, June 23).
The financial side of the agreement is also being kept secret. According to Jamestown’s sources, French manufacturers agreed to provide supplies to Georgia immediately, under the conditions of an installment payment plan within the next several years.
The political content of the agreement remains the most important part of the contract, given how zealously Moscow follows military cooperation processes between the post-Soviet states and NATO members. It is hard to imagine that Paris did not take into consideration Moscow’s possible reaction to arms supplies to Georgia. Analyst Nika Imnaishvili argued: “Ukraine influenced many processes and made possible things that were considered impossible before” (Author’s interview, June 25).
Since the August 2008 war, which ended with a ceasefire negotiated by then–French president Nicolas Sarkozy, France has considered itself in a certain way responsible for the future of Georgia’s statehood. Neither Paris nor Berlin are prepared to provide Georgia with a Membership Action Plan (MAP), which would prepare the way for the country to eventually join the North Atlantic Alliance. Thus, French authorities have tried to “compensate” for their refusal on NATO membership by increasing bilateral military cooperation with Georgia. The process started while Mikheil Saakashvili still headed the country. The former Georgian president recently said that after Paris’s refusal to provide Tbilisi with a MAP, he convinced Sarkozy to supply four Eurocopter AS332 Super Puma military transport helicopters, widely considered among the best in their class, on highly favorable terms with an installment payment period of 25 years (Intermedia, June 24). However, the first such high-profile weapons system is yet to arrive in Georgia.

North Caucasians May Turn Into Third-Class Citizens in Russia

1 Share
A Russian publication has alleged that the “Stop Feeding the Caucasus!” slogan, which is popular among ethnic Russians, was invented by Vladimir Putin’s enemies to undermine his authority and ultimately destroy him politically. This is an unusual attempt to construct a collective identity of all citizens of Russia. The “enemies of Putin” are designated as the common enemy of both the Russian government and the North Caucasians. Russian experts close to the Kremlin have habitually accused Russian liberals of betraying the nation’s interests. This time the claim is not only about the liberals, but also about parts of the Russian government. “It is noteworthy that at the time of the appearance and proliferation of the slogan ‘Stop Feeding the Caucasus!’ Vladimir Putin was in the most vulnerable position,” said journalist Timur Yusupov. “At the time he only occupied the second most important position in the government, as prime minister, and could easily have been removed from all levers of government.” According to the writer, the proponents of the slogan practically wanted to rid Russia of the North Caucasus, but Vladimir Putin managed to “disarm” them through a “great power” (velikoderzhavnaya) mobilization of Russian society around the return of Crimea and the protection of the western borders of Russia from the “Ukrainian fascists” (Onkavkaz.com, June 23).
Despite the claim about “Putin’s enemies,” ethnic-Russian opposition to the North Caucasians may be quite deep-seated. The website Goodbyekavkaz.org allows its visitors to vote for the separation of the North Caucasus from Russia. The secession of the North Caucasus is presented as a way of ridding Russia of an economically backward and dangerous place. The message portrays North Caucasians as tending to indulge in terrorism and Russia as needing to spend its wealth on keeping the North Caucasus economy afloat. So far, about 9,500 people have voted for the secession of the North Caucasus and 2,500 against it.
President Putin’s response to the growing Russian nationalism was double-pronged. On the one hand, he wrote in his much-cited January 2012 newspaper article in defense of the North Caucasus: “When some people start to yell today: ‘Stop feeding the Caucasus’—tomorrow they will inevitably follow up with calls: ‘Stop feeding Siberia, the Far East, the Urals, the Volga region, Moscow.’ ” On the other hand, in the same article, the Russian president elevated ethnic Russians in a variety of ways. Putin wrote, for example: “The Russian people are state-forming [gosudarstvoobrazuyushchy]—by the very fact of Russia’s existence. The great mission of [ethnic] Russians is to unite, bind civilization” (Nezavisimaya Gazeta, January 23, 2012). Moscow has tried to retain a version of Soviet-style internationalism, which played down differences between ethnic groups, but in practice provided extra benefits to Russians and Russian culture.
The latest revelations by the violent Russian nationalists suggest the Russian government’s attitude toward ethnic minorities may have been not only double-pronged, but also with a touch of double-dealing. The ongoing trial involving Russian nationalists Evgenia Khasis, Ilya Goryachev and Nikita Tikhonov is underreported in the Russian media despite the truly sensational evidence and allegations that have been made in its proceedings. The group is accused of killing ten people, including Russian civil rights activists and ethnic minority activists. All of the killings took place in the period from 2008 to 2010. The nationalists on trial have repeatedly alleged that they had connections to the Russian presidential administration, including the deputy head of the administration, Vladislav Surkov (BBC–Russian service, June 25).
Despite these astounding revelations, the court does not seem to be interested in investigating the government’s role in the activities of the Russian nationalists. The Russian media is also remarkably reticent about them. The confessions of another well-known Russian nationalist, Dmitry Dyomushkin also indicate that the government had dealings with the nationalist organizations (YouTube, April 27). The emergent picture seems to be that the government had a complex relationship with Russian nationalist groups until the latter started to act independently and the government then decided to crack down on them.
The Russian government’s gamble in Ukraine seems to have dampened the government’s appetite for forging contacts with the Russian nationalists and blaming the North Caucasians for all of Russia’s problems. As journalist Yusupov noted: “In the situation when Caucasians readily went to Donbas to die for the sake of protecting the Russian population of those areas of Ukraine, it became impossible to advance the idea of separating the North Caucasus from Russia in the public media space.” The writer also noted that this was likely a short-term solution for the safety of the North Caucasians; and after war in Ukraine, they would again be targeted (Onkavkaz.com, June 23).
Moscow may find it increasingly difficult to regulate Russian nationalism down the road. After Crimea’s annexation, the Russian government has to take care of a new territory predominantly populated by ethnic Russians. It appears that Kyiv does not want to subsidize Russia-controlled areas in eastern Ukraine, thereby putting Moscow in the position of being responsible for the well-being of ethnic Russians who are not Russian citizens. In the hierarchy of ethnic groups of Russia, the North Caucasians are likely to fall even further, as Crimea and eastern Ukraine will almost certainly be more important to Moscow than the North Caucasus in the short and medium term.
