Nemtsov was casualty of a wider war

imageFinancial Times, Grigory Yavlinsky, 01.03.2015
The EU must develop a strategy of integrating the former USSR, writes Grigory Yavlinsky
Boris Nemtsov’s murder, which has shocked Russia, is the result of the war that has been under way for the past year. The war’s location is far broader than the area of military operations in east Ukraine. It covers the whole of Russia and the former USSR.

The Kremlin has created a concept of the “Russian world” which has no clear boundaries but encompasses the entire post-Soviet world. The application of this idea is official policy, mingling with the worst elements of public opinion. Read more »

A Conscious Choice?

392_300_25026_yabl_By Grigory Yavlinsky. Novaya Gazeta, 6 February 2015
Russia’s place and role in the modern world is under the attack of the “collective West”, and not the political regime. Action needs to be taken now – otherwise it will soon prove impossible to stop the rollercoaster as it gathers momentum.

Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev declared recently that Russia’s decisions and the West’s reaction to them represented one of the causes of the current crisis, but added that this was a “conscious choice”. What might this “choice” actually consist of and are the consequences of such action really conscious? Read more »
