Jury Rules That 96 Soccer Fans Were Unlawfully Killed in U.K. Sporting Disaster

1 Share
WARRINGTON, England — The 96 Liverpool soccer fans who died in the Hillsborough Stadium disaster were “unlawfully killed” because of errors by the police, a jury concluded Tuesday.
Relatives of the victims of the 1989 disaster, some wearing Liverpool scarves, were in tears outside a specially-built courtroom after new inquests into Britain’s worst sporting disaster.
Fans chanted “Justice for the 96” and sang the Premier League club’s anthem, “You’ll Never Walk Alone” after hearing the verdicts.
Families spent more than a quarter of a century campaigning after being angered by the verdicts of accidental death at the original inquests following the April 1989 FA Cup semifinal match between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest at the stadium in Sheffield.
The original inquest verdicts were overturned in 2012 following a far-reaching inquiry into the disaster and new hearings held in Warrington, close to Liverpool in northwest England.
The jury, which had been considering 14 questions set out by the coroner, concluded the deaths constituted unlawful killing by a 7-2 majority, prompting sobbing and cheers at the hearing.
The jury also found that police planning errors “caused or contributed” to the situation that led to the crush, while confirming that the behavior of fans did not cause or contribute to the tragedy.
The verdicts are not the end of the fight for the victims’ families. The Crown Prosecution Service said it will “formally consider whether any criminal charges should be brought against any individual or corporate body.”

Russia’s Aggressive-Repressive Policies Bring No Long-Term Gains

1 Share
Claims of “stability” and “confidence” shaped President Vladimir Putin’s answers to the carefully selected questions posed during his annual 220-minute-long live TV call-in program, which aired on April 14. Since then, however, Russian foreign and domestic policies have zigzagged so much that the notion of “stability” has become irrelevant, while discord among the top figures in the Kremlin and the government has undermined any pretense of confident leadership. During his televised question-and-answer program, Putin concentrated heavily on domestic affairs, seeking to restore the image of an attentive and caring master. But his apparent lack of understanding of the grim reality of protracted crisis has only become more obvious (Carnegie.ru, April 14). Putin also tried to downplay the theme of confrontation with the ever-hostile West, but tensions and direct hostilities have since reached a new level of intensity.
The resumption of dialogue between Russia and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was supposed to mitigate these tensions. However, last week’s (April 20) meeting of the NATO-Russia Council, in which the Russian ambassador faces the Alliance, only added to the spirit of mutually assured mistrust (Novaya Gazeta, April 21). On the eve of that meeting, initiated—to the great satisfaction of Russian diplomats—by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, Moscow found it opportune to stage a series of military provocations in the Baltic theater (Nezavisimaya Gazeta, April 18; see EDM, April 21). These undeniable violations of elementary rules for prevention of military incidents on the sea and in the air included the provocative flyover by Russian Su-24s of the USSDonald Cook, which was visiting Poland and Lithuania. Yet, the Russian Ministry of Defense tried to present the visit of the United States’ warship to Klaipeda, Lithuania, as an attempt at putting “military pressure” on Moscow (Rbc.ru, April 20). Such crude provocations undercut Russia’s efforts to ease the sanctions regime by showing restraint in Ukraine; and at the same time, Moscow’s aggressive behavior on NATO’s eastern flanks will not be able to prevent cuts to the Russian defense budget, because the country’s economic decline continues unabatedly.
The only positive score, for the Kremlin, from the risky fake attacks on the US Navy destroyer was that they took attention away from the crash of a Mi-28N Russian helicopter near Homs, Syria, in which two pilots perished (Gazeta.ru, April 12). The Russian intervention in Syria is in limbo, and while the forces of Bashar al-Assad’s regime prepare for a new offensive, Moscow is reluctant to commit to a new deployment as the risk of casualties keeps growing. US Secretary of State John Kerry is trying to consolidate the ceasefire by drawing lines that would keep the moderate opposition safe from Russian airstrikes, while admitting irreconcilable differences on Moscow’s support for al-Assad: “Obviously, we’re not stupid about it” (Rbc.ru, April 23). There have also been dangerous encounters in the Syrian sky involving Israeli fighters, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu focused on preventing further incidents in his talks with Putin last week (Kommersant, April 22). The most painful setback for Russian maneuvers in the Middle East, however, happened in Doha, Qatar, where multilateral talks on possible cuts in oil production resulted in an entirely predictable failure, since Iran is firmly set on increasing its output (Carnegie.ru, April 18).
Moscow’s hopes that the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) would find a way to push up the oil prices are, indeed, totally misplaced. Russian economists now describe long stagnation as Russia’s “new norm”, which could well be interrupted by a series of sharp contractions (Polit.ru, April 21). Seeking to uplift this hopeless trajectory, Putin has called back his old loyalist Alexei Kudrin to design a new reform package; but there is no way around the fact that every proposal for liberalizing the business environment directly contradicts official guidelines for tightening state control over the damaged economy (Nezavisimaya Gazeta, April 20). Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, meanwhile, is far from thrilled with Kudrin’s rehabilitation and has quickly produced his own proposal for reorganizing the government, which retains, in his view, too many Soviet features (Rbc.ru, April 22). This confusion destroys the illusion of stability. In a recent opinion poll about Russia’s situation, only 2 percent believed the country is “stable”; 41 percent of respondents saw “temporary difficulties”; 14 percent saw Russia undergoing “stagnation”; 17 percent feared a “coming crisis”; while 16 percent acknowledged “deepening chaos” (Levada.ru, April 20).
Putin’s approval ratings may remain sky high, but his lieutenants fear the accumulation of discontent to an unknown critical mass. These fears were highlighted by Aleksandr Bastrykin, the head of the Investigative Committee, who blames the escalation of internal instability on the “hybrid war” waged by the US against Russia for the last decade (Kommersant, April 18). He is one of the most influential figures among Putin’s security services personnel (siloviki), and his assessment of quickly increasing Western-sponsored extremism certainly stands in sharp contrast with Putin’s message of reassurance in stability (Vedomosti, April 20). Bastrykin’s proposals for Chinese-style controls over the Internet and criminal punishment for “falsifications” of history elaborate his key point: “Enough of the fake democracy games.” It is, in fact, an appeal to Putin to upgrade the repressive machine (Forbes.ru, April 18). The newly-formed National Guard, for that matter, has already started training for dispersing street protests against an increase in communal tariffs (Newsru.com, April 23).
This attempt to influence Putin’s choices is a sign of bafflement rather than determination in the siloviki camp—but its chances for success are slim. Putin is no more able to repress mass discontent than to launch liberal economic reforms. He can neither reinvent his corrupt rent-seeking regime as a "police state,” nor as a developmental semi-democracy. He is trying to combine pressure on the disunited opposition with targeted generosity in the form of distributing dwindling resources; and he relies heavily on propaganda to amplify such palliative measures. Much the same way, in foreign policymaking, Putin seeks to swing back and forth between showing toughness and flexibility—testing NATO’s resolve to build up its capabilities for defending the Baltic states and demonstrating prudence in keeping the war zone in Donbas under control. On each turn, the surprise generated by his latest move may register as a tactical success, but this trademark unpredictability signifies a lack of direction in his leadership. Each aggressive step requires a corresponding upturn in domestic repression; and each about-face calls for a relaxation of restraints. But Russia does not stand still as a result of these incoherent jerks—it keeps going down.

Kaliningrad as a ‘New Ideological Battlefield’ Between Russia and the West

1 Share
On April 12, Igor Nikolaychuk, the head of the Department of Regional Security Problems at the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies, traveled to Russia’s Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad, where he proclaimed that the oblast would never become a demilitarized “region of peace” (Newsbalt.ru, April 12). Moreover, he blatantly accused “external forces” of meddling in this Russian region, nestled between the European states of Poland and Lithuania. These remarks by no means reflected Nikolaychuk’s personal opinion: they are part of a well-calculated informational campaign orchestrated from above.
Indeed, such heightened rhetoric regarding Kaliningrad could be observed a year earlier from Russian Patriarch Kirill. During the Forum of the World Russian People's Council, held on March 14, 2015, and attended by top-ranking Russian officials, Kirill emphasized the “fort outpost” status of Kaliningrad against the West. Moreover, the Russian Orthodox Church leader called for the escalation of the campaign against remnants of German cultural heritage in the exclave, which the Soviet Union annexed following World War II (Patriarchia.ru, March 14, 2015). Clearly, Moscow has intensified its aims to turn Kaliningrad Oblast into a militarized and ideologically anti-Western outpost on the Baltic, abrogating the idea of Kaliningrad as a would-be “region of cooperation” between the European Union and Russia.
Present Russian discourse on Kaliningrad is dominated by two main factors: an acute fear of social unrest (“Maidan” in the Russian political vocabulary) and the threat of expansion of economic and cultural ties between the local population and neighboring countries.
Over the last several weeks, evidence has continued to mount that Kaliningrad is being rapidly transformed into a leading talking point and focus of propaganda for ultraconservative, anti-Western Russian circles. Intensive anti-West informational warfare was initiated, in 2014, by the local governor, Nikolay Tsukanov, who accused Western special services of preparing a Maidan on the territory of the oblast (Freekaliningrad.ru, July 1, 2014). This statement was fully supported by the head of Kaliningrad’s local government, Mikhail Pliukhin (Newkaliningrad.ru, July 2, 2014;Korrespondent.net, July 3, 2014). Furthermore, during his meeting with Vladimir Putin, Tsukanov purposefully underestimated the population of nearby Lithuania by half (Govoritmoskva.ru, July 26, 2015). In so doing, he was reiterating a popular local myth about the alleged “depopulation of the Baltic States,” supposedly caused by pervasive poverty following the disintegration of the Soviet Union and exacerbated by the shortcomings of their membership in the EU.
Another pivotal argument frequently being disseminated by propaganda outlets in Kaliningrad and Russia-wide is the notion that widespread Russophobia has permeated Poland and the Baltic States (Newsbalt.ru, April 3, 2016May 6, 2015). In Poland, the government is pursuing an ongoing campaign of de-Communization, which, among other things, includes the removal of the Soviet monuments erected on Polish soil. Such symbols of Soviet power are seen locally as a present-day reminder of Moscow’s forceful imposition of an adverse ideology on Poland, coupled with the extermination of Polish intellectual elites. But Russian media has presented this as an indisputable sign of a deeply rooted national hatred in Poland and the Baltic States against Russia (Slavia.ee, April 5, 2016).
Moreover, local propagandists (actively supported by central authorities in the Kremlin) have re-launched another popular rumor, heretofore buried since the early 1990s, stating that the Kaliningrad oblast is in danger of being annexed by external armed forces—for instance, by Lithuania (Delfi.lt, June 10, 2015). Media stories to this effect have been flourishing particularly since the EuroMaidan, which erupted in Ukraine in 2013–2014. Notably, senior Russian intellectuals and officials have gone on record saying they strongly believe that the United States stands behind Lithuanian irredentism and that Washington has secretly approved the transfer of Kaliningrad to Lithuania (Novorus.info, April 2).
In addition to such purported external threats, the notion of a “fifth column” arising in Kaliningrad has also gained enormous popularity recently. This latter threat is supposedly made possible by Kaliningrad’s physical separation from the mainland and “encirclement” by NATO/EU members as well as due to the remnants of the region’s historical and cultural legacy that are not found anywhere else throughout the Russian Federation.
According to the propaganda, the specter of Kaliningrad’s “fifth column” is said to be cooperating closely with German organizations seeking to reignite discussions on Kaliningrad city’s former identity—Königsberg. These groups are accused of trying to sow the seeds of separatism in the exclave (Maxpark.com, March 22) and ultimately to spark a “Maidan worse than in Kyiv” (Exclav.ru, March 18). On March 20, during his visit to Kaliningrad, the president of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems (AGP), Colonel-General Leonid Ivashev, openly blamed external forces of attempting to destabilize the region from within. Ivashev announced that a regional branch of the AGP would be opened in order to counteract foreign instances of “soft power” and to forestall the “creeping Germanization” in Kaliningrad oblast—which he suggested remains “a very much desired object for German expansion” (Newsbalt.ru, March 20). As such, Ivashev is replicating and carrying out a specific cultural policy meant to undermine and completely erase the memory and legacy of the German period of local history (1255–1945)—an approach first developed by the Soviet regime after Kaliningrad’s annexation. This was accompanied by cultural nihilism and the destruction of the region’s architectural heritage—which was justified by the alleged “worthlessness” of German material culture. This Moscow-driven strategy received new impetus on March 15, during Russian reactionary intellectual Peter Multatuli’s recent visit to Kaliningrad. Specifically, Multatuli presented his book on local history, which urges the wholesale rejection of the exclave’s German historical period and underscores Kaliningrad’s vital importance for Russia’s geopolitical confrontation with the West (Exclav.ru, March 15).
Moreover, starting from September 1, 2016, Kaliningrad will be among the first Russian regions to host the newly revitalized military-patriotic youth formation “Yunarmia,” which had existed in the Soviet Union (Balticpl.ru, April 6). This will continue to push Kaliningrad down the path of militarization and even further isolate this exclave from its natural European partners across the border.
Taking into consideration the above-cited tendencies, and combined with the visible speedy accretion of Russian military might in the Baltic region, Kaliningrad is clearly growing in importance as both a focus and a key tool of Russia’s anti-Western policies.

DEBKAfile Exclusive: Decision to send US troops to Syria not linked to ISIS

1 Share
April 26, 2016, 9:28 AM (IDT)
DEBKAfile's military and intelligence sources report exclusively that US President Barack Obama's decision to send another 250 troops to Syria is not connected to the war on ISIS, but rather on the battles raging over the past few days between the Kurdish YPG militia and the Syrian army in the city of Qamishli, the Kurdish capital in northern Syria. There are currently 50 US troops in the country.
Washington is concerned that Russian influence is spreading among the Syrian Kurds, especially among senior YPG commanders. The Russians are the ones who encouraged the YPG to attack the Syrian army in Qamishli and the surrounding area in order to force its withdrawal.
According to White House officials, the Russian involvement in Qamishli is Moscow's first violation of the agreement reached at the end of 2015 between Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Under the deal, all of Syria east of the Euphrates river is an American area of influence, while all Syrian territory west of the river is a Russian area of influence.
DEBKAfile's sources add that the sending of American reinforcements is intended to signal to Moscow to stop its involvement with the Kurds east of the Euphrates.

DEBKAfile Exclusive: US secretly removes its forces from northern Sinai

1 Share
April 26, 2016, 10:17 AM (IDT)
DEBKAfile's military sources report exclusively on Tuesday that during the last few days the US military secretly withdrew about 100 of its officers and enlisted men who had been serving in the multinational peacekeeping force in the northern part of the Sinai Peninsula.
US sources refused to specify the current location of the troops. The American force was withdrawn from El Gorah base, located next to the town of Sheikh Zuweid, after the facility was bombarded by forces from the ISIS affiliate in the Sinai. It marked the first time for US troops in the Sinai to be attacked by the terrorist organization.
Our sources report that the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph F. Dunford, travelled to Cairo and met with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Saturday to coordinate the removal of the troops.
DEBKAfile's sources report that Egypt and Israel must now deal with the withdrawal as an established fact. Cairo and Jerusalem had previously expressed opposition to such a move.    

Russian army concentrates forces near Aleppo ahead of all-out assault

1 Share
April 26, 2016, 11:10 AM (IDT)
Russia has continued to build up forces north of the city of Aleppo over the past few days. Western and Middle Eastern sources monitoring the war in Syria estimate that this step is in preparation for an all-out assault by Russian, Syrian, Iranian and Hizballah forces on rebels in the northwestern city. The Russian command in Syria is said to be determined to capture Aleppo, purge the city of rebels and restore control by Syrian President Bashar Assad.
The Russian forces gathering near Aleppo include heavy artillery units with various types of MLRS rocket launchers and special forces troops to protect the artillery from rebel attack.
On the rebel side, as DEBKAfile reported on Saturday, Turkey and Saudi Arabia sent a force of 3,500 rebels to Aleppo last week to help the rebel forces repel the upcoming attack.

Obama Returns from Overseas Trip

1 Share
U.S. President Barack Obama returned Monday night to Washington from a weeklong trip that took him to Saudi Arabia, Britain and Germany. During his journey, Obama sought to shore up U.S. alliances that he views as key to growing trade, defeating Islamic State militants, and offsetting Russian aggression in Ukraine and Syria. The U.S. leader, who used one of his final foreign trips to start trying to shape his legacy, said in a speech Monday in Germany that he sees Europe facing a "defining moment.'' He urged the continent's leaders to pay attention to income inequality, education for young people and equal pay for women. "If we do not solve these problems, we start seeing those who would try to exploit these fears and frustrations and channel them in a destructive way,'' Obama said.
