Russia’s Parity Policy in the South Caucasus and Azerbaijan’s Eurasian Prospects

The attention of outside forces to the largest South Caucasus republic is growing steadily, with the US, the European Union and Russia all seeking to win over Azerbaijan. Events in Ukraine and the creation of the Eurasian Economic Union (EaEU) have raised the stakes in the game codenamed «winning the sympathy of Baku». Among the noted players targeting Azerbaijan, the US is the least consistent, and the political elite in the Caspian republic continue to regard its American partners with suspicion...

Why Richard Morningstar Is Threatening Azerbaijan with a Maidan

Several days ago Richard Morningstar, the U.S. Ambassador in Baku, made a statement in an interview with the Azerbaijani office of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty of a sort which diplomats do not usually dare to make. The American suggested that one of the lessons Baku should learn from the events in Ukraine is that the Maidan could repeat itself in Azerbaijan... The American diplomat's statement regarding the possibility of an «Azerbaijani Maidan» should be considered together with the previous speech of James Warlick, the U.S. Co-Chair of the Minsk Group on the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The speech took place May 7 at the Carnegie Endowment in Washington. The ideas expressed by Warlick - and he unambiguously suggested retuning the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict to the situation at the end of the 1980s - was received very frostily in Yerevan...

The ‘Eastern Partnership’ is fading away before our very eyes

The EU’s Eastern Partnership summit that took place in Prague on 24-25 April was called to solve the Hamlet question of whether the programme itself is to be or not to be. It was unable to do so, however... Of late, finance and energy have increasingly been coming to the fore in the foreign policy priorities of the eastern European countries of Eastern European and the post-Soviet world, as well as post-Soviet states... The real financial and economic cost of the Ukrainian issue is well understood by many in the European Union itself, especially in the Czech Republic and Slovakia...

Russia and Armenia’s Strategic Partnership Given New Impetus

On 2 December, Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Armenia. The state visit began in the republic’s second largest city, Gyumri, in the outskirts of which is located the Russian 102nd Military Base, covering the border between Armenia and Turkey... The close cooperation between Russia and Armenia with regard to military and technical cooperation was the basis for the strengthening of bilateral economic ties and Armenia’s inclusion in the processes of integration into Euroasia. Before Yerevan made the decision to join the Customs Union, there were a number of disputes surrounding Armenia’s choice between Eurasian and European integration trends. These disputes have now lost their urgency. Even those in Yerevan who are fervently in support of the European option are beginning to realise that the progressive strengthening of Russia’s economic position in Armenia defeats the purpose of any previously formed plans for associating the republic with the European Union...

EU Goes East: Political Offer for Economic Colonisation

...In the case of six Eastern member states of the EaP the integration idea gives priority to the strong Western Global players over relatively week Eastern competitors... What can Kyiv expect from signing the Association Agreement with Brussels? 27 pages of the written agenda of the EU-Ukraine Cooperation Council in June 2013 make it evident: the preparations for the Association Agreement do not function at eye level, the text shows a clear submission of Ukraine’s whole legislation and a political, social and military adaption to EU’s guidelines... The chapter «Economic cooperation» shows that Brussels also wants to interfere in inner politics from financial to social affairs... In ordinary language: monetary policy is going to be controlled by the ECB, and social policy is submitted to the restrictive regime of austerity packages... Energy co-operation in Brussels’ words consists of two main points: abolishment of state subsidies for electricity and gas «to ensure full payments» and «integration of the united power system of the Ukraine into the Union of Central European electricity networks»... These are the corner pillars of the EU enlargement project, interfering in all possible spheres of national and local politics and economics...

From Syria to Caucasus: Will Separate Sparks Become One Big Fire?

...The creation of Turkish military strike force along the Syrian border, the Ankara’s vigorous diplomatic activity in the Caucasus are accompanied by no less significant initiatives in Central Asia, where, following Washington, Turkey goes on being more adamant while promoting its interests. And the question if the growing number of unstable hotspots along the geopolitical axis the Middle East – the Caucasus – Central Asia may move to a new level of explosive intensification, this time encompassing the territory of Russian Federation, hangs in the air...

Postscript to Genocide

This week, French leader Nicolas Sarkozy will likely sign into law the controversial bill making it a criminal offense to deny that genocide was committed by Ottoman Turks against Armenians during World War I...Debates over the legislation are raging with unwavering intensity even though at the moment Sarkozy's signature on it is in essence an accomplished fact.

Shaky prospects for the Eastern Partnership

The meeting in late September of the member states of the Eastern Partnership (EaP) project (initiated by Poland and Sweden and targeting six post-Soviet states – Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia) showed that Warsaw is still interested in the Euro-Atlantic integration of these countries, especially of the first three ones... Actually, the EaP project is aimed at breaking long cultural and historical traditions which used to unite Russia and it’s the former Soviet republics. The aim is also to let the West expand its military presence in the region, an initiative also launched by Poland...

European battle march to Caucasus

On October 6-7, French President Nicolas Sarkozy is expected to visit Yerevan, Baku and Tbilisi and passions are running high around his coming trip...

BOKO HARAM: its transformation into a transnational terrorist corporation

In recent years we have seen many radical organizations become internationalized - factions that once confined their operations to within defined state boundaries have been converted into transnational terrorist corporations. Of course, certainly not all radical organizations make this transition. Some, such as the Taliban, remain «domestic» entities. However, many are «suddenly» able to easily transcend the national boundaries of not only neighboring countries, but whole regions that they are able to overtake. This was the sort of transformation made by al-Qaeda and the Islamic State. We are now watching Boko Haram (BH) undergo a similar metamorphosis into a transnational «terrorist corporation»...
