Putin has Lost Monopoly on Use of Force and Balance among Force Structures 

1 Share

Paul Goble

 

            Staunton, March 13 – The Putin regime has lost two things on which any state depends: a monopoly on the legitimate use of force on its own territory and a balance among its own force structures. And those twin losses help to explain why that country’s force structures may be emerging as the most powerful opponents of the incumbent Kremlin leader.

 

            In “Novaya gazeta” today, Yuliya Latynina says that Moscow has lost the monopoly of the use of force and the closely related “the monopoly on punishment” as a result of what she describes as “the unification of Russia to Chechnya” as far as the country’s legal space is concerned rather than the other way around (novayagazeta.ru/columns/67602.html).

 

            Ramzan Kadyrov, the head of Chechnya, has arrogated to himself the right to kill those he deems his enemies and to defend those who do so against charges brought by Moscow, she points out. As a result, she says, citing the words of Kseniya Sobchak, “the laws of the Russian Federation do not work on the territory of the Chechen Republic.”

 

            That has become especially obvious in the wake of the Nemtsov murder, Latynina says, and it has infuriated many in Russia’s force structures who are appalled by “the loss of the Russian state of the monopoly on punishment,” something they not surprisingly believe must be theirs alone if the Moscow government is to survive.

 

            The Moscow commentator points out that this is not a new concern but only an increasing one: “Two years ago,” she writes,” an entire section of the special services was ready to go into retirement” over Kadyrov’s apparent ability to do what he wants without regard to Russian law. “Only long conversations and serious arguments convinced them to stay.”

 

            “The law of power is very simple,” she continues. “Power is the right to use force with impunity. Whoever is able to use force with impunity is therefore the ruler. The murder of Boris Nemtsov forces one to suspect that Putin is no longer the strongest man in Russia.”  And that has the most serious consequences.

 

            “The most striking thing” about all this is that those who have said that the murder of Nemtsov was committed in order to replace Putin are almost right. Only what they were about was not to replace him but to put him in the position of a dependent” which for someone who has had supreme power is a disaster.

 

            Meanwhile, Alfred Kokh, a former vice prime minister of Russia, says that the other part of this equation – the balance among Russia’s force structures on which Putin has relied has been undermined if not completely destroyed as well (nv.ua/opinion/koh/igra-putina-siloviki-rvut-rossiyu-napopolam-38815.html).

 

            The main challenge and thus “the chief headache of any tyrant is to maintain tight control over the siloviki, on which he depends in order to usurp power,” Kokh writes. If that balance is destroyed, then his regime and even his life are at risk.

 

            Putin for his part has constantly played one part of the force structures against another by increasing their number and thus maintained “a balance among them and his own supremacy.” That represents a departure from the way Stalin managed this: the Soviet dictator unlike his Russian successor periodically purged the force structures to ensure their obedience.

 

            Kokh says he has the sense that “the murder of Boris Nemtsov destroyed this rickety equality.” And as a result, two coalitions have emerged within the force structures. On the one hand are the Federal Protection Service and the Kadyrov men “who carried out this operation,” and on the other are the FSB and the Interior Ministry who have evidence that they did.

 

            Their evidence involves not just who pulled the trigger but who gave the orders, he writes. “And now the coalition of the Interior Ministry and the FSB in exchange for their silence are demanding a serious weakening of even the destruction of the structures which are part of the first coalition.”

 

            In many ways, he suggests, this represents another round of the Chechen war, a conflict that “veterans on both sides” do not consider over and want to ensure that “the blood of their comrades” is avenged.  That is why some in the force structures are so angry at Putin for supporting Kadyrov and also why Putin himself may now be in such trouble.

Iraqi Forces Press Offensive to Retake Tikrit

1 Share
Iraqi security forces on Friday pressed on with their massive offensive to retake Tikrit, where fighters from the Islamic State group are besieged and have reportedly begun to lose ground. Baghdad officials continue to express confidence they will soon completely retake the city, which has strategic and symbolic value as the hometown of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. As many as 30,000 Iraqi troops and Iranian-backed Shi'ite militia members have surrounded the city and have retaken several areas, though it remains unclear how far the forces have advanced. The offensive, now in its second week, has been slowed by snipers and booby traps set by Islamic State fighters. But Defense Minister Khaled al-Obeidi said the operation soon could enter a crucial phase. "We are very keen for our losses to be as low as possible,” the minister told reporters Thursday. “Time is on our side. We have the initiative." Tikrit lies about 130 kilometers or 80 miles northwest of Baghdad. Capturing it would give a geographic advantage to the government before an anticipated offensive against militants in Mosul in the coming months. A U.S.-led coalition is conducting airstrikes against the extremist group that overran parts of Iraq and Syria in the past year, but the coalition has stayed out of the battle for Tikrit.

India, US Researchers Clash Over Swine Flu Strain Mutation

1 Share
India has disputed U.S. scientists' findings that the deadly swine flu virus has acquired more virulent mutations in the South Asian country and rejected their concerns over how authorities are monitoring an outbreak of the disease. H1N1 influenza, also known as swine flu, has killed more than 1,500 people in India this year, compared with 218 in 2014. India says the strain is the same as the one that killed an estimated 284,000 people in the global pandemic of 2009-10. Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) said in an article on Wednesday that the genetic information of two Indian strains, deposited in public databases in the past two years, revealed new mutations that could make the virus more deadly. But India's National Institute of Virology said in a statement late Thursday that the findings were "incorrect". "We found that the strain analyzed in the said publication and the sequence data of the original H1N1 virus ... did not show any of these mutations," the institute said. The government agency also said the strain analyzed by the U.S. scientists had no relevance to the current outbreak. The MIT researchers called for greater surveillance to determine whether the mutations were currently present in India. "There is a real need for aggressive surveillance to ensure that the anxiety and hysteria are brought down," said Ram Sasisekharan, one of the research paper's authors. "When you do real-time surveillance, get organized ... then you can come up with a better strategy to respond to the virus." In recent weeks, India has placed orders to increase the stock of diagnostic kits and procured additional doses of anti-viral drug Oseltamivir. Officials are investigating the cause of the steep rise in deaths. Indian health ministry officials were not immediately available to comment on the MIT article. Some other experts have also contested its findings. "There should be increased surveillance for influenza in India but at the same time we should not draw conclusions based on the sequence analysis of two strains," said Manish Kakkar of the Public Health Foundation of India.
