Paul Goble: Stalin’s NKVD and Hitler’s Gestapo Cooperated Closely Even Before Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact

Staunton, January 12 – Perhaps the only thing that outrages Russian defenders of Stalin more than the obvious parallels between his regime and Hitler’s is any reference to the alliance the two dictators formed in 1939 with the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, one that opened the way to war in Europe and lasted until Hitler turned on his former ally in June 1941. But now there may be something even more offensive to such defenders of Stalin and his system: the discovery of documents which confirm that the NKVD cooperated closely with the Gestapo well before the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact was signed and that may have paved the way to its signature. Dmitry Volchek of Radio Svoboda reports that documents recently released from the archives of the KGB offices in Ukraine show that “the NKVD handed over to the Gestapo refugees from Germany who had hoped to find in the USSR salvation from Hitler”

WASHINGTON — There are few things that President Vladimir V.

Last year, President Trump suggested a move tantamount to destroying NATO: the withdrawal of the United States. Senior

Paul Goble: Two Simple Reflexes Explain Putin’s Decisions, Shaburov Says

Staunton, January 11 – As the gap between what Vladimir Putin says and does and what Russians see around them widens, ever more analysts offer convoluted explanations for what is going on, but Aleksey Shaburov argues that much of this is unnecessary over-interpretation and that the Kremlin leader’s actions are driven “not by clever plans” but by “two simple reflexes.” The editor of Yekaterinburg’s Politsovet portal says that the first of these reflexes is “to take as much as one can,” to gain “profits and resources from any possibility of that which opens even if in the longer term, this could turn out to be disastrous” (politsovet.ru/61446-dva-refleksa-rossiyskoy-vlasti.html). Among examples of this are last year’s pension reform and tax increases, steps taken not because of some grand plan, Shaburov says, but rather reflexively as a result of declines in income from other sources such as the sale of oil

Paul Goble: Russia’s Lower Classes Far More ‘Soviet’ than Its Elites and That is a Big Problem, Inozemtsev Says

Staunton, January 7 – Russian commentator Vladimir Pozner argument that Russia will change only when the last member of the Russian elite educated in Soviet times passes away (echo.msk.ru/blog/pozner/2346625-echo/) is fundamentally wrong, Russian economist Vladislav Inozemtsev says (echo.msk.ru/blog/v_inozemcev/2347259). Not only is Pozner’s analysis mistaken in serious ways, despite being shared by many, the director of the Moscow Center for Research on Post-Industrial Society says; but it is a dangerous distraction that helps strengthen the current powers that be and thus threatens to hold Russia back for an ever longer period in the future. Pozner’s logic is superficially attractive, but it is wrong because the Russian elite now displays very few of the elements of its Soviet predecessor and many characteristics that predecessor did not share, including the inclination of many of its

Paul Goble: Russian Generals Want a Third Chechen War Because They Feel Putin Stole Their Victory in the Second, Zakayev Says

Staunton, January 10 – Akhmed Zakayev, prime minister of the Ichkeria government in exile, says that many Russian generals want a third war in Chechnya because they believe Vladimir Putin stole their victory in the second by handing over control of the republic to Raman Kadyrov. And to push their cause, he says, the generals are behind a media campaign that seeks to blame Kadyrov and the Chechens for all the misfortunes of Russia, effectively making him into “a scapegoat” that must be removed from the scene if those ills are to be overcome (kavkazr.com/a/ramzana-segodnya-delayut-kozlom-otpuscheniya/29691284.html). Unfortunately, Zakhayev says, the generals’ campaign finds wide support among Russians across the political spectrum who display “a rare unanimity – the Chechens must be conquered and destroyed.” They all start from the premise that Chechnya is not under Russian control and that it must be

БОЛЬШАЯ ВОЙНА. Министр обороны Норвегии не исключил большой войны в Европе

В Европе в ближайшее время может начать крупное военное столкновение, которое грозит серьезными последствиями Скандинавским странам. Такое заявление сделал глава норвежского Минобороны Франк Бакке-Йенсен на заседании «Военного общества Норвегии». Намекая на реваншистскую политику Москвы, он отметил, что тенденции и условия для нее созрели уже давно. Министр также добавил, что Норвегия планирует и дальше наращивать расходы на оборону, которые и так выросли на треть за последние пять лет. «Развитие событий в нашем окружении демонстрирует, что мы должны брать в расчет, что вооруженный конфликт между государствами в Европе больше не является немыслимым», — подчеркнул он. Напомним, что несколько месяцев назад норвежские власти призвали США удвоить число американских солдат в своей

Nuclear Posture Review puts Russia firmly in crosshairs

WASHINGTON — The U.S. is preparing to change its nuclear arsenal, a direct response to actions taken by Russia’s military over the last decade. Officially unveiled Friday afternoon, the Nuclear Posture Review — a comprehensive look at America’s nuclear weapons and the doctrine behind it — largely continues ideas pushed forward from the 2010 review done by the Obama administration. It fully supports the nuclear modernization projects now underway and reaffirms commitments to non-proliferation treaties. But thematically, it is hard not to notice a major shift from the 2010 NPR, which emphasized the goal of reducing nuclear stockpiles worldwide through American leadership, and the 2018 version, which emphasized the need to enhance capabilities to match with Russia. Indeed, while the NPR features sections for North Korea, China and Iran, the primary focus is clearly Russia, and what
