Russia, Western Powers Trade Accusations Over Ukraine
Comments by officials from Germany, the United States, Ukraine and Russia, all attending a major security conference in Munich on Saturday, indicate there are still big gaps between the U.S. and European view of the Ukraine crisis, on the one hand, and Russia's position, on the other. VOA State Department correspondent Pam Dockins reports.

MUNICH (Reuters) - Germany's Angela Merkel said on Saturday that sending arms to help Ukraine fight pro-Russian separatists would not solve the crisis there, drawing sharp rebukes from U.S. politicians who accused Berlin of turning its back on an ally in distress.

A Munich in Moscow 

1 Share

Paul Goble


Staunton, February 7 – The meeting of Angela Merkel and Francois Hollande with Vladimir Putin in Moscow to discuss Ukraine without the presence of Ukrainian leaders has led many commentators to draw parallels with the 1938 Munich Conference at which Britain and France sold out Czechoslovakia to Hitler in the name of “peace in our time.”


Perhaps the most thoughtful of these is offered by Andrey Piontkovsky who argues that “events in Ukraine are developing approximately according to the very same scenario” that events in Czechoslovakia did 77 years ago and strongly implies that they will continue in the same direction as well (ru.tsn.ua/analitika/frau-merkel-kapitulirovala-409494.html).


Just how far Merkel and Hollande are prepared to go for peace in their time is unclear, he argues. It could be anything from “a second Transdniestria” to the legitimation of Russian “peacekeepers” inside the borders of Ukraine and the “guarantees” Putin seeks for a “non-aligned” government in Kyiv.


But as the Russian analyst points out, the very fact of the meeting represents “an enormous political success” for the Kremlin leader. Not only does it boost Putin’s prestige and end all the talk about his international isolation, but it divides Europe and the United States as well as undermining the unity of Europe itself, two long-standing Moscow goals.


Many if not all “had hoped that Putin had been driven into a corner, but now he is again on the march. All this,” Piontkovsky says, “has become possible” thanks to the shift of position of German Chancellor Merkel who has succumbed to Putin’s latest campaign to achieve exactly those two ends.


(Piontkovsky dismisses Hollande’s presence in Moscow and his actions as not unexpected because the French president has been “zombified by Putin” for a long time and thus could be expected to follow Merkel if she made such a shift away from support for Ukraine against Russian aggression to cooperation with Moscow in the name of ending the conflict.)


Among the leaders of Putin’s latest ideological effort has been Dmitry Trenin, head of the Moscow Carnegie Center and someone “very respected in America as a pro-Western specialist,” even though in fact he is “a GRU colonel” and may now even be a general in the Russian intelligence services, Piontkovsky says.


In an interview to London’s “Financial Times,” Trenin suggested that if the United States provided weapons to Ukraine, “’the Russians’ in this case would use tactical nuclear weapons,” a statement that so frightened the Europeans that Merkel and with her Holland changed their approach and have pushed Ukraine toward acceptance of Putin’s plans.


Not only does this open a gulf between the EU leaders and the United States and between Germany and France and many other countries in the EU, but it allows Putin to achieve two other goals as well. On the one hand, it sets the stage for exactly the kind of negotiations Putin wants: by world leaders face to face over the fate of lesser powers.


And on the other hand, it shows that aggression and even the threat of aggression works for Moscow, thus guaranteeing there will be more of it. In that way too, Moscow 2015 resembles Munich 1938, even if the leaders of Germany and France are not prepared to learn those lessons or even think longer term.

Three Disturbing Developments in Russia

1 Share

Paul Goble


            Staunton, February 7 – At a time when each day brings fresh evidence that Russia is headed in a very dangerous direction and many news items that leave one shaking one’s head or feeling the need to say “I’m not making this up,” there are nonetheless some “smaller” stories that must not be ignored because of the long shadows they cast on the future.


            Three in the last several days fall into this category and are thus mentioned here, not because they provide a comprehensive picture of what is happening but because they point to trends already well-established that are likely to gain ground and become more important in the near future.


            First, the whitewashing of  Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin and of his GULAG prison camp system continued and expanded. This week, Russian officials put up the first Stalin statue in more than 60 years, and to add insult to injury, they did so alongside statues of Churchill and Roosevelt showing the Western leaders deferring to him and in recently occupied Crimea.


            The Russian media justified this by saying that this trinity created the post-war world that Vladimir Putin would like to go back to, but as one more thoughtful Moscow commentator put it, “erecting statue to Stalin in Crimea is like putting one of Hitler up in Israel” (kasparov.ru/material.php?id=54D4F38D0C440).


            And related to this was the celebration rather than lamentation of the 75th anniversary of a GULAG camp, one in which millions of Russians and other Soviet citizens were incarcerated and died between the 1920s and the 1950s. Praising prison camps goes well beyond approving Stalin’s role as a wartime leader (newsru.com/russia/04feb2013/gulag.html).


            Second, two Duma deputies, one from Just Russia and a second from United Russia, have turned in draft bills to allow residents to hand back ownership of their apartments to the state, a measure that the Rosbalt news agency described as part of “Operation ‘De-Privatization” (rosbalt.ru/piter/2015/02/05/1365097.html).


            The specific measures do not go very far, but they simultaneously show that Russian support for privatization which many view as the foundation of a shift away from the communist system is slipping and that the Russian authorities could thus move not only with impunity but even with support to reverse privatization as a way of expanding state control in key sectors.


            And third – and this may be the most disturbing of the three – a Russian rights activist told Radio Liberty that Svetlana Davydova, the Russian mother of seven who telephoned the Ukrainian embassy to warn about Russian troop movements toward Ukraine, was turned in to the authorities by her neighbors.


            Olga Romanova of “Sitting Rus” told Radio Liberty that “it turns out that [her] neighbors participated in this. That is, the information about her telephone calls, contacts, and views became public knowledge not because the FSB is listening to all of us but because we all have vigilant neighbors” (svoboda.org/content/article/26829801.html).

Moscow Patriarchate Said Opening the Way for Kadyrov to Succeed Putin and Islam to Dominate Russia

1 Share

Paul Goble


            Staunton, February 7 – Nikolay Podosokorsky says that the Moscow Patriarchate’s support for the right of Muslims to wear the hijab and for Ramzan Kadyrov’s demonstration in support of the Prophet Mohammed promotes “the Islamization of Russia” and thus opens the way for the Chechen leader to succeed Vladimir Putin as Russian president a decade from now.


            In an article published today in the online journal “Inache,” Podosokorsky, a philologist and blogger, argues that recent statements by officials of the Moscow Patriarchate in support of the hijab and of Kadyrov’s “million man march” in defense of Islam should disturb Russians concerned about the future of their country (inache.net/signs/968).


            At the time of Kadyrov’s march, which was intended as a response to the Paris march in support of the French publication “Charlie Hebdo,” Podosorkorsky posted in his blog “a scenario according to which the next president of Russia after Putin could become the current head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov” (philologist.livejournal.com/7193805.html).


            He suggested there that “this could take place approximately in 2024-2025” and that “Kadyrov would then become for Russia a certain ‘Islamic’ analogue of Stalin.” This could occur, Podosorkorsky said, because the 2018 elections are likely to be “the last direct elections” in Russia and the next president will be chosen by the Kremlin-controlled Federation Council.


            For that to happen, the philologist continued, Russian life will have to be “changed in a cardinal way;” and in his article today, he suggests that “over the next decade, the Russian Orthodox church will become an even more obvious weapon in the Islamization of Russia, although,” he insists, “its role already now is obvious to the unaided eye.”


            Not only has the Moscow Patriarchate expressed its support for the hijab and for the Grozny march, but its senior officials have shown themselves to be promoters “not so much of Christianity as of a certain syncretic ideology with elements of totalitarianism, fuehrer worship, nationalism, paganism, Islam, etatism, magic and superficial ‘moralizing’ Orthodoxy.”


            Patriarchate officials like Archpriest Dimitry Smirnov has said that “the future belongs to the Muslims” (youtube.com/watch?v=y7uMonaoHeg), Podosorkorsky points out, and Putin himself has even proclaimed that “Russian Orthodoxy is much closer to Islam than it is to Catholicism” (youtube.com/watch?v=nqyVYtWB894).


            “Almost every day,” he continues, “we see various manifestations of so-called ‘Orthodox Islam,’” a when Orthodox officials say that they “do not exclude” the possibility of legalizing shariat courts in Russia (lenta.ru/news/2012/04/25/shariat/) or when Islamic leaders kiss the hand of Patriarch Kirill.

            According to Podosorkorsky, “Russia is ceasing to be a secular country in front of our eyes,” and no one should content themselves with “illusions that it will as a result become Christian.”  The Orthodoxy Moscow is promoting now “has very little relationship” to real Christianity and is instead “drifting toward Islam.”


“Everything begins with something small,” he continues. “Russians will be offered a unifying anti-Western ideology according to which Islam and a special ‘Russian Orthodoxy’ are the two pillars on which Russia stands. Further, television will convince us that in the capital of each region there must be both an Orthodox cathedral and a mosques.”


Then, “at the next stage,” Russian officials will argue that “for the unity of the nation it will be necessary to unite these religions into one state-forming religion and fix its status in the basic law of the law, especially since Putin has already long ago spoken about the similarity of Orthodoxy and Islam.”


            “If Kadyrov really does replace Putin as president, then Patriarch Kirill could become under him ‘an Orthodox ayatollah’ but only of course until he is replaced by a mufti of more radical views.” That will open the way to the discrimination of women and many other horrible things, the Russian philologist says.



            Given this threat, Podosorkorsky says, Russians must be strong in order to defend our freedom and the secular character of our state!”  Indeed, he concludes, it is already time to consider forming “an all-Russian popular front against the clericalization of the country, something that could lead to its ultimate Islamization as well.

‘Donetsk Peoples Republic’ Declares Itself Successor to 1918 Bolshevik Statelet 

1 Share

Paul Goble


            Staunton, February 7 – The so-called Donetsk Peoples Republic has declared itself to be the successor to the Donetsk-Krivoy Rog Soviet Republic which existed nominally within Soviet Russia in February-March 1918 between Ukraine’s signing a treaty with Germany and Soviet Russia’s signing the treaty of Brest-Litovsk.


            The 1918 variant presented itself as a response to the German challenge, defined itself as being part of Soviet Russia rather than part of Ukraine, and claimed territories far in excess of those it actually controlled, three things that may have recommended it to the current leaders of the DPR and their Moscow backers.


In addition to those factors which the authors of this week’s declaration stress, there is another one that should give Ukrainians and their supporters pause: After the 1918 statelet was liquidated by Moscow, its leaders moved on to Kharkiv and helped form the Bolshevik government of Soviet Ukraine.


            The Donetsk-Kriovoy Rog Soviet Republic was never recognized by anyone, including Soviet Russia, but its utility for Moscow was shown when it was liquidated by Moscow and folded into the Ukrainian Soviet Republic and when many of its leaders then moved on to Kharkiv and helped form the Bolshevik government of Soviet Ukraine.


            On Thursday, the Peoples Council of the DPR approved and released a memorandum stating that the current “republic” considers itself to be “the legal successor” of the 1918 one and asserting, incorrectly, that the Donetsk-Krivoy Rog Republic had never ceased to exist de jure(inforesist.org/boeviki-predyavili-pretenzii-na-territorii-xarkovskoj-zaporozhskoj-xersonskoj-i-dnepropetrovskoj-oblastej/).


            The memorandum notes that in 1918, the DKR included “the territories of Kharkiv and Yekaterinoslav guberniyas, Krivoy Rog of Kherson gubernia, part of the districts of Tavride gubernia, and the industrial regions of the Oblast of the Don Cossack Forces.”  In fact, the DKR claimed all of these but did not control most of them.


            And the memorandum concludes with an appeal to all “peoples living on the territory of Ukraine which at one time were ‘part of the Donetsk-Krivoy Rog republic and also other oblasts … to become full-fledged subjects of ‘the Donetsk Peoples Republic,’” according to the Inforesist report.


            Commenting on the DPR action, Aleksandr Kazakov, the director of the Moscow Stolypin-Struve Center for Liberal-Conservative Policy, says that this memorandum “changes the entire political configuration in the region” and thus needs to be attended to most closely (actualcomment.ru/v-dnr-prinyat-memorandum-ob-istoricheskoy-preemstvennosti.html).


            Kazakov says the declaration is important because it means that it is no longer possible to call the people behind the DPR “separatists” as they are simply restoring something that existed earlier rather than breaking away from any country.  But there is an even more important aspect from his point of view.


            According to the Moscow analyst, it is important to recall that the 1918 DKR was created not as an ethnically-based territory but rather was “a region formed according to economic principles,” something that makes it an additional threat to the current arrangements in the post-Soviet space.


            Meanwhile, another commentator interviewed by the same outlet, Viktor Zakharov, the deputy director of the Moscow Institute of Russian History, lays stress on the fact that the DKR was “initially founded as part of Russia” and there had no relationship to the Ukrainian state or anything ethnic. The same thing is true of the DPR now, he insists.

On February 5 , the People’s Council of the DNR approved and released a memorandum stating that the current “republic” considers itself to be “the legal successor” of the 1918 one and asserting, incorrectly, that the Donetsk-Krivoy Rog Republic had never ceased to exist de jure.
The memorandum notes that in 1918, the DKR included “the territories of Kharkiv and Yekaterinoslavguberniyas, Krivoy Rog of Kherson gubernia, part of the districts of Tavride gubernia, and the industrial regions of the Oblast [region] of the Don Cossack Forces.” In fact, the DKR claimed all of these but did not control most of them.
And the memorandum concludes with an appeal to all “peoples living on the territory of Ukraine which at one time were ‘part of the Donetsk-Krivoy Rog republic and also other oblasts … to become full-fledged subjects of ‘the Donetsk Peoples Republic,’” according to the Inforesist report.
Commenting on the DPR action, Aleksandr Kazakov, the director of the Moscow Stolypin-Struve Center for Liberal-Conservative Policy, says that this memorandum “changes the entire political configuration in the region” and thus needs to be attended to most closely.
Kazakov says the declaration is important because it means that it is no longer possible to call the people behind the DPR “separatists” as they are simply restoring something that existed earlier rather than breaking away from any country. But there is an even more important aspect from his point of view.
According to the Moscow analyst, it is important to recall that the 1918 DKR was created not as an ethnically-based territory but rather was “a region formed according to economic principles,” something that makes it an additional threat to the current arrangements in the post-Soviet space.
Meanwhile, another commentator interviewed by the same outlet, Viktor Zakharov, the deputy director of the Moscow Institute of Russian History, lays stress on the fact that the DKR was “initially founded as part of Russia” and there had no relationship to the Ukrainian state or anything ethnic. The same thing is true of the DNR now, he insists.

Ukraine crisis: Political wrangles in Munich dash hopes of a rapid peace deal

The hopes raised by the rush to Moscow by European leaders Angela Merkel and François Hollande on Friday to speak with Russian President Vladimir Putin over an iteration of a peace plan for conflict-riven eastern Ukraine appeared all but dashed yesterday with political squabbling erupting again more than 1,000 miles away.
