Putin’s Gamble: An End to NATO and Restoration of Russian Might BY STEPHEN R. COVINGTON 9/6/15 AT 1:28 PM: "Away from public view, Putin constructs unchallengeable political control over Russia that is built on the narrow aims of a Kremlin leadership interested in obtaining more wealth and more power. Individually, these public and non-public lines of effort are single elements of Putin’s policy, each with their own appeal to their targeted audience. However, these three lines of Putin’s policy are mixed together into a single political and strategic military logic for breaking out of the perceived strategic encirclement of the European security system around Russia to establish a stronger, more globally competitive Russia."

An End to NATO and Restoration of Russian Might

1 Share
In 1985, a Soviet leader came to power, leading one of the two superpowers in a bi-polar world, commanding a powerful military and leading a party mandated with changing the world.
Mikhail Gorbachev was also equipped with something far more powerful than the weapons in the Soviet arsenal—forecasts of the USSR’s future inability to compete with the United States in economic, technological and military terms. Gorbachev was convinced that the Soviet war economy and its priorities would constrain and exhaust its national capacity to compete successfully at the end of the 20th century—and that the internal system needed change for the USSR to sustain itself as a competitive, global power.
Gorbachev decisively chose economic reforms and disengagement from strategic confrontation with the West to address Soviet non-competitiveness. Internal political and economic changes to the Soviet system were intended to strengthen the USSR and renew its economic and technological base for sustained global competition in the 21st century.
He disengaged the Soviet Union from external strategic confrontation through conventional and nuclear arms reductions, changed Soviet security and defense policies and reduced arms expenditures. Gorbachev’s choice ended decades of direct military confrontation between the Soviet Union and NATO, and Eastern Europe’s political revolutions ultimately led to the geographic separation of Soviet and NATO military forces.
In 1991, Gorbachev was swept from power by the political and economic forces unleashed by his attempted internal reform of the USSR. 30 years later, another Russian leader driven by similar concerns about future strategic non-competitiveness has set this country on a path to address and reverse its non-competitive position in the world.
Vladimir Putin’s Russia today, however, is on a very different course from Gorbachev. After implementing liberal economic reforms aimed at strengthening Russia’s sovereignty in the early years of his rule, Putin has rejected structural, internal economic and political reforms, fearing that like Gorbachev he too could be swept from power.
Putin’s choice reflects a view that Russia can only address its non-competitiveness by changing the world around Russia, and most critically, by changing the European security system. In Putin’s view, any solution short of changing the European security system—including full integration, separation by erecting new walls, freezing the status quo around Russia, or partnering with other countries to counter-balance the powers in the European system—only means Russia’s inevitable loss of great power status and the loss of his personal power at home.
Consequently, Putin is rearming Russia, remilitarizing Russia’s overall approach to security, changing Russia’s defense concepts, adopting continuous destabilization strategies against neighboring states and returning to old policy formulas for internal and external security—all justified and rationalized by the perceived threat posed by the U.S./European security system around Russia.
His policy requires a changed Europe to enhance Russian strategic competitiveness and requires a changed Europe to avoid political change inside Russia. These two Russian campaigns—one external and one internal—are interfused. Success in one campaign is dependent on success in the other. More importantly, failure in one campaign is perceived as prompting failure in the other.
President Putin’s decision is influenced by Russia’s experiences since the end of the Cold War—internal coup attempts, terrorist attacks, “colored revolutions” around Russia, wars inside and outside of Russia, unfinished reforms and perceptions of Russia’s natural vulnerability to a fate similar to that of the USSR given its one-dimensional economic base and political superstructure.
However, Putin’s policy is driven mostly by concerns about Russia’s inability to compete on almost any level and in almost any sphere with the world’s greatest powers absent fundamental changes to the security, energy, economic and financial systems around Russia.
Russia does have long-standing critical views of the European security architecture. U.S. and NATO Ballistic Missile Defense programs, a variety of NATO and EU policies and actions and U.S. security and defense integration on the continent have been a few of the many points of criticism from Moscow over the years.
Dimitri Medvedev, then the President of Russia, proposed a new European security architecture shortly after the Russian conflict with Georgia in 2008 to change the European security system. While Putin’s policy is consistent with well-documented Russian criticisms of Europe’s security architecture, his actions differ substantially from previous Russian approaches.
Previous Russian approaches could be characterized as attempting to “break into” the European security system to politically divide and overrule. In contrast, Putin’s current approach attempts to “break out” of the European security system, divide Europe and establish new rules. This is a fundamental change of approach that reflects a fundamental change of policy.
Russian political and military experts also have long envied the Chinese security model. In many ways, Putin’s Russia seeks a security system in Europe that resembles the security environment China has in the Pacific.
For the Chinese, there is no real Asian-wide architecture of transpacific security akin to Europe’s transatlantic security that collectively counter-balances national power. China is able to use its economic and military strengths with a wider range of freedom, acting opportunistically, wielding its power to divide and overrule, protect territories and interests and navigate its strengths in a security environment with strategic but isolated pockets of U.S.-Pacific defense integration.
Simultaneously China has integrated economically, gained access to technology, modernized its economic system and maintained continuity in political control over the internal system.
Russian security experts also have admired the fact that China has evolved and grown into a great economic power without the political and economic turmoil Russia suffered in the 1990s—turmoil that has cost Russia time, money, energy and opportunity.
Russia’s leadership wants a Europe without strategic Alliances, without multi-national organizations and without a U.S.-Europe Transatlantic link that can through collective policies and action offset the national strengths Russia would hold over any one European nation. It would be a European security environment that would allow Russia to apply its national strengths to great effect without challenge and competition—enhancing its power abroad and at home.
This is the end-state of Putin’s strategy, and it requires changing the European security system—the rules of the game—to sustain Russia’s capability to compete with Europe and other regional powers poles outside Europe. Conversely, the policy strictly seeks to freeze the political rules of the game inside Russia, and end meaningful political competition at home. Russia’s leaders have concluded that the European system is both vulnerable and unjust.
In the Russian view, the European security system is vulnerable because it is weakened by a diffusion of global power, political devolution, sapped of economic wealth and attacked by forces of disorder in other parts of the world. Putin also has concluded that the current European security system is unjust because it confines and restricts Russia’s ability to exercise her inherent national strengths, inflicting a modern form of multi-dimensional, multi-level strategic encirclement of Russia.
Russia’s leaders claim the European security system is part of a global system whose purpose is to advance a unipolar, U.S.-dominated global order. Moreover, Russia’s leaders assert that preventing Russia from attaining its proper place in a just global order is a prerequisite to sustain the current unjust global order.
Russia’s policy seeks to change first the principles and rules upon which Europe and other countries have prospered and grounded their economic and military security, then replace them with new principles and new rules that would enhance the strengths of an unreformed, Putin-led Russia and compensate for its weaknesses.
As Russia’s campaign against Ukraine has demonstrated, this is a “rule breaker to be rule maker” strategy, and the strategy relies on a variety of internal and external means to achieve its ends. Internally, the strategy feeds nationalism, familiarity and orientation to the disempowered Russian people, offers the prospect for greater profit to the powerful rich and promises purpose, identity and resources to the power ministries (e.g., Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Interior).
Externally, the strategy relies on the use of all elements of power—including military—to discredit, devalue and delegitimize the current European security system. The roots of this strategy have many antecedents in Soviet policy, yet his policy is not that of the Soviet Union. Nor is it a policy that strictly and narrowly follows nationalist aims for redrawing borders to revive a Novorossiya or rebuild the Soviet empire.
His policy is a mixture of the very old, old and new in a completely different global strategic context. Putin needs the Russian people, the country’s powerful rich and the power ministries to support his policy. The Soviet-inspired symbols, messaging and parades, the nationalism associated with a Great Russia, the rearmament, increased defense budgets, the declarations of an unjust peace at the end of the Cold War and the accommodation of the narrow financial interests through new energy contracts with China and others are used to fuel support for his policy at home and attempt to legitimize it abroad.
President Putin has merged these three lines of ideas, ideals and vision for Russia into a single system of thought, policy and action to drive his strategy and build support internally for his agenda. Righting the perceived wrongs inflicted on Russia and rebuilding Russia’s power, prestige and place in the former Soviet space after its perceived humiliation at the end of the Cold War are the public lines of Russian policy.
Away from public view, Putin constructs unchallengeable political control over Russia that is built on the narrow aims of a Kremlin leadership interested in obtaining more wealth and more power. Individually, these public and non-public lines of effort are single elements of Putin’s policy, each with their own appeal to their targeted audience.
However, these three lines of Putin’s policy are mixed together into a single political and strategic military logic for breaking out of the perceived strategic encirclement of the European security system around Russia to establish a stronger, more globally competitive Russia.

Putin Orders Snap Combat Drills In Central Military District

1 Share
President Vladimir Putin has ordered snap combat-readiness drills in Russia's central military district.
Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on September 7 that the exercises involve paratroopers and military transport aviation as well as some aircraft from other military districts.
"We have to check the capabilities of paratroopers when they are deployed over large distances and their readiness to make landings on unknown aerodromes," he said.
The minister added that the war games, which run to September 12, are also designed to test the Health and Agriculture ministries' "readiness to carry out their tasks in wartime conditions."
The central military district ranges from the regions around the Volga River to the Ural mountains and Siberia, while also including far northern Russia.
Russia has intensified snap checks of its military might, as the crisis in Ukraine sent relations between the West and Moscow to lows not seen since the Cold War.

PARIS (Reuters) - French President Francois Hollande on Monday proposed a meeting of the leaders of France, Germany, Russia and Ukraine in Paris later this month to push ahead with peace talks after recent ceasefire progress.

"The process has moved forward. There has been progress in the last few weeks. The ceasefire has almost been respected," Hollande told a news conference.

"The foreign ministers will speak in the coming days, and I propose a meeting (of leaders) in Paris before the U.N. General Assembly (on Sept. 28) so that we can evaluate the process and lead it to its end."



Hollande added: "If the process succeeds I will support the lifting of sanctions."

Russia’s opposition faces an uphill struggle against Kremlin and Vladimir Putin

1 Share
In late 2011, he was one of several leaders of a surge of anti-Kremlin protests - and endured the subsequent crackdown, which saw arrests, apartment searches, and several allies sent to prison.
Boris Nemtsov (L), and Ilya Yashin take part in an anti-Putin protest in central in Moscow
Since the annexation of Crimea in February 2014 and the subsequent eruption of war in eastern Ukraine, Russia’s opposition leaders have endured ever-growing public vilification as ‘fifth columnists” and traitors.
In February this year came a blow that sent the entire anti-Kremlin movement – and much of Russia – into shock: the murder of the veteran opposition leader Boris Nemtsov.
Mr Nemtsov’s murder was a watershed moment for both the opposition and the Kremlin. It signalled that the era of tolerance was over – in the post-Crimea era, dissenters in the most brutal way.
It also deprived the movement of one of its few elected officials. Mr Netmsov held a council seat in Yaroslavl, a provincial medieval town north-east of Moscow.
Six months on, his old allies are regrouping and trying to regain office in the neighbouring region. But it is an uphill struggle.
One of the ancient river towns on which ancient Russia was founded, Kostroma is today a sleepy provincial capital, remarkable mostly for its neoclassical eighteenth century centre, reputedly laid out according to the pattern of Catherine the Great’s fan.
It has been hit by Russia’s economic downturn, though not catastrophically. Factories have closed to be replaced by shopping centres. Two mills producing linen – a traditional Volga export – still stagger along at reduced capacity. Many young people have left to find work in Moscow or Yaroslavl, the bigger, wealthier capital of the neighbouring region.

“It’s always been the definition of the sleepy provinces,” said Olga Dorozhkina, a local activist on the RPR Parnas, Mr Yashin’s party. “You can’t call it a politically active place.”
It is, in short, an unlikely place for an anti-Kremlin insurgency. And it is not where the opposition would have chosen to fight.
The opposition alliance of which Mr Yashin is a member had wanted to field candidates in four regions for the September 13 elections, including Novosibirsk, the booming scientific capital of Siberia.
One by one, however, they were denied registration on one technicality or another.
By mid-August, only Kostroma’s regional election commission had granted the opposition a place on the ballot. It is a decision that Mr Yashin and his campaign manager, Leonid Volkov, believe goes right up to the Kremlin.
“Why were we allowed to run here? It’s simple. In Novosibirsk, 70 per cent of the population live in the regional capital, so we don’t have to go too far to reach most voters. Here, sixty per cent of the population live in the countryside.” said Mr. Volkov, the campaign manager running the Parnas effort.
The population map is not the only difficulty. Novobirisk, with its strong artistic tradition and a reputation has a capital of science, is the kind of environment when Russian opposition politics thrives: big, wealthy, educated and middle class.
Largely rural and far from wealthy Kostroma is quite a different story.
“It is the toughest region for us. The Kremlin are counting on us demonstrably failing here so they can say ‘look, you can’t even get elected. You’re not popular,” he said.

The group need five per cent of the vote to get a deputy into the regional parliament, and the logistical nightmare is real.
Kostroma’s billboards, bus stops, and lampposts are peppered with campaign posters for United Russia, Vladimir Putin’s ruling party, and the parties of the so-called “systemic opposition” – the Communists, hard-nationalist Liberal Democrats, and centre-Left Just Russia, who sit in parliament but seldom, if ever, criticise Kremlin polices.
But the green and white of Parnas is nowhere to be seen – something Mr Volkov blames on the local authority’s firm grip on the local outdoor advertising market. Similarly, the party is largely ignored in television coverage.
“That means there is no room for subtlety in our campaign: first we need to inform people that we exist; and only then can we motivate them to vote for us,” said Mr Volkov. “The first ten days were taken up solely with the first task, so we’ve got a week to reach out and persuade people to vote for us.”
Mr Volkov is targeting not city squares and high streets, but the courtyards around which Russian residential areas are invariably built. The idea is “to go to the people, not to expect them to come to us.”
It is an exhausting schedule. The two lead candidates, Mr Yashin and Vladimir Andreichenko, a former regional governor, host a minimum of five public meetings each per day, relocating every 90 minutes from midday.
And it could easily be demoralising. During a day on the campaign trail with Mr Yashin last week, his best attended meeting attracted 14 voters. They were overwhelmingly elderly.
But if it gets to him, he does a good job of hiding it.
“My name is Ilya Yashin and I want to be your deputy in the regional assembly,” he began at his first meeting, addressing a total of three voters with a spring in his step and an engaging, breezy style.
The message is simple. “There is no one in the assembly who represents your interests. I want to be that person.”
It is old-fashioned, soapbox politics in a country where soap box politics is now a rarity.
And it quickly became apparent that the activists are not just up against impossible logistical challenges, the sullen activists of Patriots of Russia, or the threat of arrest Mr Yashin was detained early in the campaign for using a megaphone.
“It’s difficult to believe any facts anyone repeats,” shrugged Roma, a 27 year old soldier who, with his wife and child, sat through Mr Yashin’s speech in their apartment block courtyard. He was most worried about growing violence in the town. A couple of soldiers from his base had recently been stabbed during an altercation with drunks in a restaurant. “I’ll think about it before I vote.”
But that doesn’t mean his message is not hitting home, but that politicians are regarded with an almost universal disgust.
“Every month prices go up for food, essentials. Wages don’t,” said Natalya, Roma’s 25 year old wife. “Lots of people say they’re going to fight against it. Lots of people say they will fight corruption. Everyone speaks beautifully when they want your vote, and they never do anything afterwards.”

Turkish jets strike PKK targets after deadly militant attack

1 Share

DIYARBAKIR, Turkey (Reuters) - Turkish warplanes bombed Kurdish insurgent targets overnight after the militants staged what appeared to be their deadliest attack since the collapse of a two-year-old ceasefire in July and killed 16 government soldiers.

The military said its aircraft bombed 23 Kurdish insurgent targets in a mountainous area near the Iraqi frontier on Monday. The statement from the army also said that another six soldiers had been wounded, but that none were in critical condition.

The clashes, weeks before polls the ruling AK Party hopes will restore its majority, threaten to sink a peace process President Tayyip Erdogan launched in 2012 in an attempt to end an insurgency that has killed more than 40,000 people.

Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) rebels said they had killed 31 members of the armed forces in an attack on a convoy and clashes on Sunday in the mountainous Daglica area of Hakkari province, near the Iraqi border. The army statement said 16 had died making this the highest military death toll in a single attack for years.

The PKK is designated a terrorist organization by Turkey, the European Union and United States.

Erdogan said in an interview late on Sunday on the A Haber TV channel that the fight against the PKK would now become more determined. He said 2,000 PKK militants had been killed since the conflict resumed in July.

Uncertainty arising from the conflict, coinciding with a campaign against Islamic State militants based in Syria, has unnerved investors, with the lira dropping to record lows against the dollar.

The unrest has raised questions over how security can be guaranteed for the Nov. 1 vote. But Erdogan, who has dominated Turkish politics for over a decade and now seeks a parliamentary mandate to extend his executive powers, said the election would go ahead.

The pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), accused by the government of being bound to the PKK, called for a renewed ceasefire and an extraordinary parliamentary meeting. Leader Selahattin Demirtas cut short a European visit, saying there could be no justification for killing.


"We will not surrender to war policies which only deem death proper for the people's poor children and splatter blood on the mothers' dreams of peace," he wrote on Twitter, referring to the Daglica attack and conflict in the southeastern town of Cizre.

Local media reports said a lieutenant colonel in command of the Daglica battalion was among those killed.

"Two of our armored vehicles suffered heavy damage after the detonation of hand-made explosives on the road. As a result of the blast, there were martyrs and wounded among our heroic armed comrades," the military said in a statement.

EMERGENCY MEETING

The military said two F-16 and two F-14 jets struck 13 PKK targets and operations were continuing despite very poor weather after the attack, which occurred as security forces were clearing roadside bombs planted by the PKK.

The security source said that after the militants detonated explosives along the road, a clash broke out between the soldiers and fighters from the PKK.

Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu chaired an emergency meeting with military and intelligence chiefs and ministers on Sunday night in Ankara following the attack, cutting short a visit to the city of Konya.

"The pain of our security forces who were martyred in the treacherous attack by the separatist terrorist organization sears our hearts," Erdogan said in a statement, adding he believed the Turkish people would unify and take a "decisive stance" against threats to national security.

After he spoke, some 200 people chanting pro-Erdogan slogans attacked the Hurriyet newspaper's offices in Istanbul, accusing it of misquoting him and implying that the president was trying to gain political capital from the Daglica attack.

Protesters with sticks and stones smashed windows, according to the Dogan news agency, part of the same group as Hurriyet, which has attracted criticism from pro-government circles over its coverage of the conflict.

The PKK launched its insurgency in 1984 with the aim of carving out a state in the mainly Kurdish southeast. It later moderated its goal to strengthening Kurdish political rights.

Some Turks fear Kurds in Syria, backed by the United States in their fight against Islamic state, and Kurds in Iraq, as well as the PKK, harbor ambitions of an independent contiguous Kurdish state.

Turkey, Responding to Attack, Launches Airstrikes on Kurdish Rebels

1 Share
ISTANBUL — The Turkish military carried out airstrikes on Monday against Kurdish insurgents, a day after what appeared to be the deadliest assault since the breakdown in July of a fragile peace process with the Turkish state.
The death toll from Sunday’s attack was not immediately clear. The military put the figure at 16, with six more wounded, but a website close to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or P.K.K., said that 31 soldiers had been killed. Turkish fighter jets struck 13 targets in retaliation, the military said.
The clashes signaled an escalation in violence in Turkey’s southeast, where Kurdish militants have resumed an insurgency against the Turkish state that has claimed nearly 40,000 lives over three decades.
On Monday, the military said it had launched airstrikes on the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party in response to the ambush by militants in the Daglica area of Hakkari Province, close to the border with Iraq. There were no immediate reports of deaths.
The airstrikes came after two armored vehicles suffered heavy damage on Sunday from handmade explosives, the military said in a statement, which noted “martyrs and wounded among our heroic armed comrades.”
Government officials said that more than 70 members of the Turkish security forces had been killed since the end of a cease-fire in July. In response to the daily attacks by the Kurdish militants, Turkish officials have called on the Kurdistan Workers’ Party leadership to reinstate the cease-fire and withdraw from Turkey as a first step toward disarmament.
In 2013, Turkey reached a historic settlement with the Kurdish militias, vowing to grant the Kurdish minority greater rights and autonomy in exchange for the cease-fire, which brought peace and stability to the volatile southeast.
Elections are scheduled for Nov. 1, with Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu’s Justice and Development Party hoping to regain the majority it lost in the June 7 vote. Opponents say that the government’s decision to resume extensive military operations against the Kurdistan Workers’ Party is driven at least in part by a calculated strategy by the Justice and Development Party to recapture the nationalist vote.
Commenting on the unrest in a television interview on Sunday, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the situation would be different if Turks had voted for 400 lawmakers from a single party in the June election, referring to the number of seats the Justice and Development Party would need to secure an absolute majority to change the Constitution.
He vowed that Turkey would continue its military operations against the Kurdish militants “until the end.” He said 2,000 militants had been killed so far.
After the attack on Sunday, Mr. Davutoglu left early from a soccer match between Turkey and the Netherlands in the city of Konya and returned to Ankara to convene an emergency security meeting. No statements were made.
On Monday, Mr. Erdogan said the attack had been aimed at breaking up the country’s unity.
“I believe that the Turkish nation will maintain a united and determined stance against attacks that aim to damage peace, security and stability of the country,” he said in a written statement. “The pain of our security forces who were martyred in the treacherous attack by the separatist terrorist organization sears our hearts.”
Selahattin Demirtas, the co-chairman of the pro-Kurdish Democratic People’s Party, whose success in the June election stripped the Justice and Development Party of its majority, condemned the attack and the government’s policy toward the Kurds.
“As killing has no justification; leading our people to death has no justification either,” he said on Twitter. “Death knells that upset us cannot be our destiny.”

Palestinian Toddler Killed in Suspected Jewish Extremist Attack: Police

Israeli PM Netanyahu Reacts to Arson Attack on Palestinian Homes 0:59
autoplay autoplay
DUMA, West Bank — Israel's prime minister made a rare call to the Palestinian Authority's chairman on Friday following the death of an 18-month-old Palestinian boy who was killed in a house fire suspected to have been set by Jewish extremists.
Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to Mahmoud Abbas to say "everyone in Israel was shocked by the reprehensible terrorism," according to a statement issued by his office.

"We must fight terrorism together regardless of which side it comes from," Netanyahu said, according to the statement. Israeli security forces had been ordered to use "all measures to locate the murderers," it added.
The mother of the slain child was being treated for burns on 90 percent of her body, hospital officials told NBC News earlier. Israeli officials named the slain child as Ali Dawabsheh and said his four-year-old brother was in intensive care. His father was also reported to have been injured.
Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said the "Price Tag" slogan used in the past by extremist Israelis was daubed on the walls of the family home that had been torched in the village of Duma, which is located near the West Bank city of Nablus.
"This is a suspected attack with nationalist motives," Samri said. It was the worst attack by Israeli extremists since a Palestinian teen was burned to death in a retribution slaying for three Israelis killedby abductors a year ago.
Speaking on Army Radio, Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan said: "A nation who had children burned in the Holocaust should do soul-searching if from the same nation people come out and burn other people."
Dan Shapiro, the U.S. ambassador to Israel, also highlighted Thursday's knife attack at a gay pride parade in Jerusalem.
"Two days, two terrible acts of violence and hate," he wrote on his Facebook page. "I join with so many Israeli leaders and citizens who have condemned the hateful stabbing attacks at the Jerusalem Pride March and the murderous terrorist arson in Duma."
An investigation was underway to bring the "terrorists" to justice, Israel Defense Forces spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said in a statement.
The "Price Tag" group has been blamed for a string of mosque torchings in the West Bank in the past few years, often in retribution for Israeli actions against illegally built settlements.
Israel tore down two illegal structures in the Beit El settlement earlier this week.
Palestinian Prime Minister Romi Hamdallah accused Israeli politicians of "incitement," adding: "We hold the Israeli government responsible for the attack."

Story highlights

  • A man confessed to killing an American woman, police in Nepal say
  • Her body has not been found
(CNN)An American woman who went to Nepal to help in the aftermath of April's devastating earthquake has been beaten to death, police said.
Dahlia Yehia, 25, arrived in Nepal on July 20 to serve in Pokhara, where she was killed by a teacher named Narayan Paudel, according to Hari Bahadur Pal, the Kaski District Police superintendent:.
Police said Paudel confessed to beating Yehia to death, putting her body in a sack and dumping it in the river.
Yehia's body has not been recovered, Pal said.
She met Paudel through the Couchsurfing website, which connects travelers with local hosts for accommodations.
According to police, Paudel confessed last week to killing her on August 4.
Her friends and family, concerned about her whereabouts, contacted the U.S. Embassy in Nepal. Local authorities launched an investigation.
More than 8,000 people were killed in the April 25 quake. Hundreds of thousands were left homeless.

Greece considers U.S. request to close airspace to Russian aid flights

1 Share

ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece received a request from the United States to deny Russia the use of Greek airspace for aid flights to Syria, a spokesman for the foreign ministry in Athens said on Monday.

The spokesman said the request was being examined.

Russian newswire RIA Novosti earlier said Greece had refused the U.S. request, citing a diplomatic source, adding that Russia was seeking permission to run the flights up to Sept. 24.

Greece has sought to foster closer ties with Russia during the economic crisis that nearly forced it out of the euro zone.



The Russian foreign ministry was not immediately available for comment.

Russia is a long-time ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, whose rule the United States and other western powers favor ending via a political transition.

The request from Washington comes after it expressed concerns to Moscow on Saturday about reports that Russia was moving toward a major military build-up in Syria widely seen as aimed at bolstering Assad.

Islamic State takes Syrian state's last oilfield: monitor

1 Share

AMMAN (Reuters) - Islamic State fighters have seized the last major oilfield under Syrian government control during battles over a vast central desert zone, a group monitoring the conflict said on Monday.

The Jazal field was now shut down and clashes were ongoing east of Homs, with casualties reported on both sides, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, without giving dates or more details.

Syria's army said it had repulsed an attack in the same area but did not mention Jazal or comment on how much of the country's battered energy infrastructure remained under its sway. It said it killed 25 fighters, including non-Syrian jihadists.

"The regime has lost the last oilfield in Syria," said the Observatory, which tracks violence through a network of sources on the ground.



Commentators on social media said fighting had surged in the last two to three days and the rebels had taken the oilfield on Sunday.

Jazal is a medium-sized field that lies to the north west of the rebel-held ancient city of Palmyra, close to a region that holds Syria's main natural gas fields and multi-million-dollar extraction facilities.

The army, which has been fighting to retake the city and surrounding areas since they fell in May, had managed to secure the oil field's perimeter in June.

The Observatory also said U.S.-led coalition bombing raids in areas in the militant's de facto capital of Raqqa had killed at least 16 militants, including five foreign jihadists.

Islamist insurgents bombarded the heart of the Syrian capital Damascus and mortars killed at least one civilian and wounded scores, state television said.

Ousted as Gay, Aging Veterans Are Battling Again for Honorable Discharges

1 Share
COLUMBUS, Ohio — When the Army discharged Pvt. Donald Hallman in 1955 for being what it called a “Class II homosexual,” the 21-year-old was so scared of being an outcast that he burned all his military records, save for a single dog tag he hid away.
Mr. Hallman, a coal miner’s son who sang in a church choir in rural Alabama, says he never mentioned his military service again. He married a woman he had met at work, had children and wore a suit and tie to work each day.
“I hid it because it would have ruined my life,” Mr. Hallman said in an interview at his home here.
But this summer, Mr. Hallman, now 82, retrieved the dog tag from a keepsake box and began working through an application to the Department of Defense, asking that his decades-old discharge be upgraded from “undesirable” to “honorable.”

Mr. Hallman put the circumstances of his discharge out of his mind for decades, and though he kept his dog tag, it was hidden away.
Andrew Spear for The New York Times
“I’ve gotten to a point in my life where no one can hurt me now,” he said. “I don’t care who knows, and I want to show I was an honorable person.”
He is one of a steady march of older veterans who were kicked out of the military decades ago for being gay, and who are now asking that their less-than-honorable discharges be upgraded.
By some estimates, as many as 100,000 service members were discharged for being gay between World War II and the 2011 repeal of the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. Many were given less-than-honorable discharges that became official scarlet letters — barring them from veterans’ benefits, costing them government jobs and other employment, and leaving many grappling with shame for decades.
Now, emboldened by the gay soldiers serving openly in the military and the same-sex couples finding broad acceptance in civilian life, they are increasingly seeking amends.

Reissued copies of Mr. Hallman's discharge papers refer to him as a Class II homosexual, the reason the Army gave for his discharge from its ranks.
Andrew Spear for The New York Times
“After all these years, I want to tie up loose ends,” said Jim Estep, 80, a retired professor in Buffalo, who was given a less-than-honorable discharge in 1964. “It’s a way of getting the government — that faceless entity — in some way to acknowledge the authenticity of my life and my contribution to the country.”
A 2011 Obama administration policy generally grants an honorable discharge to any veteran who was kicked out for homosexuality unless there were “aggravating” factors, such as misconduct. Records from the Department of Defense show 80 percent of the nearly 500 requests submitted since 2011 received an upgrade.
But for many it is far from an easy fix. Tracking down decades-old records and getting an upgrade can take years. Many veterans hire lawyers, and some veterans groups have asked for the process to be streamlined.
“It’s really frustrating,” said Becca von Behren, a staff attorney for the San Francisco organization Swords to Plowshares, which provides legal assistance to veterans. “If a veteran needs health care from the V.A. and it takes so long to get an upgrade, the veteran can really spiral down.”

Nearly 30 years ago, Joshua Hoffman was given an other-than-honorable discharge from the Air Force  over suspicions that he was gay.
Andrew Spear for The New York Times
A bill in Congress, known as the Restore Honor to Service Members Act, would grant blanket upgrades to nearly all veteran discharged for being gay, but it has been stalled in Congress since 2013, and backers say it has little chance of moving forward this year.
In the 1970s and 1980s, upgrading service records was the battleground of gay activists. Today the requests are coming from everyday citizens.
“These stories are buried deep; it can be traumatic to dredge it up again,” said Lori Gum, an organizer at Stonewall Columbus, a gay community center in Ohio. She has helped six veterans start the upgrade process in the past year, including Mr. Hallman, but said three were too troubled by the past to finish the application.
The United States military’s punishment of homosexuality dates back to the Revolutionary War. Historians say Gen. George Washington personally ordered that a young officer be “dismiss’d with Infamy” and literally drummed out of Valley Forge, pursued by a fife and drum troop.
Starting in World War II, the military treated homosexuality as a mental defect rather than a crime, but still purged gays with quick discharges.
Through the 1980s, military investigators, usually working in pairs, employed long interrogations and threats of public humiliation to coerce the service members to confess and name names.
“They put me in a hospital room for three or four days, no contact with anyone before questioning me,” Mr. Estep said in a phone interview.
He had graduated from the United States Naval Academy with a future senator, John McCain, and was flying fighters off a carrier in the Pacific in 1964 when the Navy discovered a letter he had written to a gay friend. He soon found himself seated in a small room facing a pair of agents who thumbed through folders of documents.
“They said they knew everything about me, which now I suspect was a lie,” Mr. Estep said. “They had rifled through my room and gotten my address book, and told me they would call everyone in there and their employers and tell them what was going on.”
Mr. Estep, who was slated to join the astronaut program, signed a confession that ended his career.
Mr. Estep applied for an honorable discharge twice in the 1960s and was denied.
Even as attitudes in the United States started to change in the 1980s, military practices lagged.
Joshua Hoffman enlisted in the Air Force in 1984 after two years as a Mormon missionary. After an anonymous tip, two agents interrogated him in 1986. He had some sense he was gay at the time, but was still a virgin, he said in an interview at his house in Columbus.
“They kept saying, ‘Tell us who you’ve done it with,’ ” he recalled. “I kept telling them, ‘I haven’t done anything with anyone.’ ” Nevertheless, he was discharged a few weeks later.
Mr. Hoffman, now 52 and living with his partner and four adopted children, began to cry as he described being thrown out of the military.
“I was kicked out of my job, my church, my housing: I had nothing,” he said. “It took a long time to realize I deserved respect.”
A year ago, at the urging of his partner, he applied for an upgrade. He got a letter back from the Air Force in June saying his discharge had been reclassified as honorable. He proudly posted it on Facebook.
Mr. Hallman put what happened in 1955 out of his mind for decades until this spring, when his daughter Deirdre asked why he was not eligible for veterans benefits.
“He just opened up and told me everything,” his daughter said.
After joining the Army, he became a clerk for Army intelligence in Frankfurt, West Germany. He had been rated excellent in reviews and recommended for a good-conduct medal, he said, but one day on the street he was propositioned by a young man and caught in a military sting. A few weeks later he was thrown out of the Army.
He never told a soul, living a straight life with a house full of children. He became president of a trucking company, then a human resources company.
Over the years, Mr. Hallman, who describes himself as bisexual, had a few casual encounters with men, but kept that part of his life hidden, he said. He later divorced, but said he had a good relationship with his ex-wife.
“I’m kind of proud of the life I’ve lived. I worked hard, was a success, owned two businesses and have a beautiful family, 12 grandchildren,” Mr. Hallman said. “But I feel like there is a stain on it, and I’d like to get it off there.”
