The Situation in Transcarpathia Intensifies

Fears that Kiev is in a position to try and repeat the ‘Donbass Scenario’ in Transcarpathia do not seem to be without grounds. Consequently, those behind the Carpathian Mountains are talking about federalisation increasingly emphatically... The demands of the Rusyns and Hungarians in Transcarpthia are based on a solid legal foundation, and they share a common goal and a common threat. The common threat is Ukraine, and the situation is intensifying. There have been repeated instances of the destruction of Ukrainian state symbols in Uzhhorod and Mukachevo, explosions in the local offices of PrivatBank, and demonstrations by Transcarpathian residents against mobilisation for war – everything is leading to the fact that the issue of granting Transcarpathia the status of an autonomous federal entity could come to a head...

Plight of Romanians and Hungarians in Ukraine

The independent Ukraine boasts a rather short history. The relations with minorities have never been a feather in the hat of Kiev authorities. The real state of things was largely muted to make it a smouldering problem. The «national revolution» has exacerbated the situation to the boiling point, especially talking about Hungarians and Romanians...

«Eurointegration Is a Myth»...

In recent days Bucharest has taken a course toward aggravating the situation in the Transnistrian Moldovan Republic. Romanian President Traian Basescu attacked Russian President Vladimir Putin for his words that Transnistrians «should be allowed to decide their own fate»... A catalyst for the pumping up of nationalist hysteria in Romania is the precipitous collapse of statehood in neighboring Ukraine, which raises the question of the fate of the Romanians living on the territory of Ukrainian Bukovina...

EU: Сolossus with Feet of Clay

Ten years ago, on March 29, 2004, the EU took a hasty decision on enlargement adding simultaneously ten more new members: Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Cyprus and Malta. As a result, the European Union became an all-European organization instead of being an economic community. It gave rise to new problems and contradictions... The Ukraine’s becoming a failed state is a result of the EU’s policy of expansion further into Eurasia with the help of Eastern Partnership program...

Ukrainian Maidans: Separatist Trends as Hidden Motive

...Aside from internal factors that foster the process of the Ukraine’s balkanization, there are important aspects influencing the situation form outside... Budapest cherishes the dreams of «Greater Hungary». It fully supports the «Kiev westerners» eyeing the potentially Hungarian lands of Transcarpatia (Zakarpattia Oblast) dominated by Hungarian population... Warsaw has the ambitions of its own which to large extent coincide with the aspirations of Hungary... To implement the plans Warsaw launches multiple programs, like the «Polish Card» for instance, which is to be received by around half a million Ukrainians, according to Polish newspaper Dziennik... Romania is another Ukraine’s neighbor and a member of NATO. It prepares to raise the territorial issue of North Bukovina, Hertsa district, the former three districts of Bessarabia: Hotinsky, Akkerman, Ismail and even the city of Odessa. The representatives of Ukrainian Romanians have already blamed Kiev for «genocide of Romanian minority» and illegal accession of «native Romanian lands»...

NATO, Russia – BMD in Europe Remains to be Bone of Contention (I)

On October 28 Romanian President Traian Basesku, Romania's Minister of Defense Mircea Dusa, US Under-Secretary of Defense for Policy James Miller, James Syring, director of the US Missile Defence Agency, and NATO Deputy Secretary-General Alexander Vershbow attended the groundbreaking ceremony held on the territory of Deveselu military facility, a former air base located at 180 kilometers east of Bucharest, the Romania's capital. The move confirms that Romania has become one of Washington’s main security partners in Europe...

Maastricht Treaty - Twenty Years in Force

The Maastricht Treaty (formally, the Treaty on European Union or TEU) came into force on November 1, 1993 to create the European Union, the common political system of United Europe and the single European currency – the euro... Is it not something we face today looking at the financial relationship between the North and the South? Or interethnic and interstate contradictions within the triangle Hungary – Romania – Slovakia?.. It brings it near to the prospect of a real confrontation flaring up within the «United Europe»...

The Anti-Brussels Front within the European Union

The mass celebration of Independence Day which took place last week in Hungary was for the first time in recent history accompanied by harsh slogans directed against the European Union and «foreign capital». Considering the popularity of the Hungarian government of Viktor Orban and the success of his economic policy, the conflict between Budapest and Brussels will not only continue to grow; it will draw other Central and Eastern European states into its orbit...

Transnistria: Accidental Sparks May Flare Smouldering Conflicts

On July 17 Romanian President Traian Basescu paid an official visit to Chisinau to discuss Moldova’s EU integration and stronger bilateral cooperation... Indeed, just before the Romanian President’s visit a group of Moldavian MPs made known they planned to appeal to the national Constitutional Court the treaty on defense cooperation between Moldova and Romania... The military treaty between Romania and Moldova has a serious provocative element. In 2008 the Georgian aggression against Russian peacekeeping contingent in South Ossetia did not bring up the possibility of involving NATO. Now with Romanian troops in the area an incident may become a spark to start a fire, a casus belli nobody wants...

Ending the Cold War on Cuba? From the Freezer to the Chiller

As US President Barack Obama announced his surprise «historic» bid to normalise relations with Cuba this week, the New York Times swooned with glowing news. ‘US to Restore Full Relations With Cuba, Erasing a Last Trace of Cold War Hostility’ was how its top headline put it. Welcoming the development, the American «newspaper of record» said Obama vowed to «cut loose the shackles of the past» and to «sweep aside one of the last vestiges of the Cold War». But, purple prose aside, the hard detail is that the ongoing illegal American embargo on Cuba will stay in place. Moreover, the move comes as Washington slaps on more sanctions against Russia and unleashes new sanctions on Venezuela...
