Examination of Liberty: imperial instincts remain in Russia

"The concept of global komplota against Russian" sovereign democracy "?
Tsigankov: "Actions around the monument in Estonia Russian soldiers and aggravation concerning relations between Estonia and Russia reaffirm a trend in Russian foreign policy in recent years. Conflicts RF neighbors happen to suspicious sequence, one" victim "other changes. Which motives encourage Moscow always to conflict with the neighbors? "
Portnikov: "I think at this point can be read not just about changing foreign policy of Russia, and that the neighbors of Russia for Moscow became part of the world. A to the outside world Our homeland refers both to a mass against which the Russian Federation has to defend a fortress under siege. Currently many they say that Estonia in Moscow is seen as an old Soviet republic, as a colony. Absolutely not! Just Estonia has become a part of the West, and the events there is already possible to treat because they occur in alien space and oriented against Russia. If we see that the Russian media is constantly held world thought komplota against Russian "sovereign democracy", we learned that the Estonian actions lie in the concept itself komplota. "
Tsigankov "Vitaly, but recent conflicts occur particularly with countries former Soviet republics, and not with the Western countries, with Iran, China .. Why exactly this trend? "
Portnikov: "Maybe, just as the former Russian Union closer on the basis of belief propaganda theme. But I would not say that the only conflicts with them. Was known conflict with Poland — of course, it is also closer to the Russian than France or Spain. But — remember how belonged to Denmark if she agreed to extradite Akhmed Zakayev RF. I have to announce that the article, which then appeared in the Russian editions of Denmark and its inhabitants, is not very different in tone from what active time writing about Estonia and Estonians. So which can be many examples, which they say is just that we should not argue as if it is aimed only against the post-Soviet states place. "
"It creates a picture of the world around fascist"
Silitski: "In my opinion, conflict with Estonia — a continuation of the current domestic Russian politics. Currently in Russia there is a process not even login, and I have said — and dyktaturyzatsyi fascist regime. To legitimize this process, society to be positive or at least flegmantichno beating dissidents and killing of journalists — to create a picture of the fascist world around.
Propaganda hype that unfolded against the Estonian country was obviously very well planned. Information technology provoked performances of the Russian minority (and they mostly get announcements of ORT and RTR) selectively removed the picture beating demonstrators with all this falls picture defeat the center of Tallinn — it creates a picture of aggressive fascist world.
Old Russian reception plus the introduction of new information technologies. Let me remind you that this in the Kremlin in 2005 wasand created a special group running Modest Kolerova (former right hand Gleb Pavlovsky) — these provocations they do long. "
Tsigankov: "Our homeland, declaring themselves as" energy superpower "also tries to energy security through political pressure on the adjacent country. Estonia can protect itself as one of the European Union. A what to do others, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Belarus? As must respond, how to build your business with Russia? "
"Outside of Russian policy should be taken as a given, imperial instincts and remain there atavism"
Portnikov: "It seems to me that there are two approaches. During 1-x, you need to build your business with Russia how are 2-independent states and not pay attention to the propaganda.
In 2-x must be more attentive to their domestic problems. The situation in Estonia would not be such a complex, if the government led harsh dialogue with the opposition. Centrist party warned that action will be developed specifically so. Need to take more seriously the policy of integration of minorities. Predict the consequences of their actions and not be substituted. And this applies not only to Estonia. "
Tsigankov: "Can Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Belarus together somehow resist pressure from Moscow Energy?"
Portnikov: "I do not believe any harsh economic relations between Kiev, Minsk and Baku because these countries have very different tasks. In Kiev — is to make its model of energy independence from the Russian Federation, in the current Minsk — to maintain political independence, and in Baku — a task quite different, because they have their own energy. I believe that Ukraine and Belarus in the end will pay Russia for energoelementy at prices that are on the market, and Azerbaijan will compete with Russia. That’s the whole model of mutual relations. "
Tsigankov: "Can the neighbors of, very different political systems, somehow merge or any will to solve the problem of Kremlin pressure without the help of others?"
Silitski "foreign policy of the Russian Federation should be taken as a given, imperial instincts and atavism remain there. Because any country should quietly, soberly, and in the long term to plead for his economic and energy security.
In the example of Belarus country met the gas conflict with Russia is not ready. The authorities have reduced the protection to some impulsive and promotional measures. Is independent of society and did not react. All Tipo want to follow the hassle, and the positive response to the west, offers substantial energy security concept has not sounded.
Protection of its sovereignty should not be limited to information provocations or demonstrative foreign demarches, and a measured and responsible steps to strengthen the state. "
