  Voloshin: Last Man Standing   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
The Kremlin's previous policies, inspired by Diachenko and Yumashev (with certain assistance from influential billionaire tycoon Boris Berezovskii) have practically driven the opposition between the kremlin and the government to a crisis point.
The Kremlin has cornered Primakov, and the prime minister's umbrage indicates the clock is ticking toward a burst of resentment.
This is why it is possible that he may seek to change relations between the Kremlin and the White House from that of hot confrontation to chilly friendship - given that he finds it possible under the present circumstances to preserve the incumbent prime minister.

 Colonel jailed for Chechen’s murder -DAWN - International; July 26, 2003
ROSTOV-ON-DON (Russia), July 25: A court jailed a Russian army colonel for 10 years on Friday for the murder of a young Chechen woman in a high-profile case seen as a test of Moscow’s commitment to punishing abuses in Chechnya.
The verdict, ending a long-running case, was delivered as the Kremlin campaigns to persuade Chechens to support a peace plan for their separatist-minded republic.
The Kremlin, trying to woo Chechens with a peace plan underpinned by an October election for a Chechen president, welcomed the outcome of the trial.

 JRL #6246 - Too Gushy?, Felgenhauer, Ivanov Defends, Drop Zone Kremlin, Col.Budanov, Russians Appreciate Sincerity, ...
According to the Colonel, during the interrogation at the military base, Kungayeva attacked him and shouted that she had always killed and would continue killing Russians and one day she would even kill his daughter.
The experts’ task was to determine first of all, whether or not the colonel was compos mentis at the moment of the murder, and secondly, whether Budanov was mentally fit to serve in the army in the first place.
They have determined that at the moment the Russian Colonel strangled Elsa Kungayeva, he was suffering a fit of rage and therefore was not capable of appreciating the illegality of his conduct or to keep his actions within the law.

Amongst numerous worst days of 2003 I can place also the day when Colonel Putin announced that he is going to run for a next term of presidency.
As we have reason to believe that second term of colonel will be not different from first term, so we are preparing to live through hard times.

At the same time the Kremlin resisted parliament's call for a state of emergency in the republic, insisting that life was returning to normal.
The Kremlin is keen to seem conciliatory and liberal on the Chechen issue, to undermine those who say it is conducting a hardline and bloody campaign against Chechens it regards as "terrorists".
The Kremlin line was apparent against yesterday when Mr Yastrzhembsky said that Colonel Yuri Budanov, who is on trial for raping and murdering a 17-year-old Chechen girl, should be punished severely if he had broken the law.

The government's recent catastrophic Beslan operation was a reenactment of the effort to "rescue" 2,000 people from Moscow's Dubrovka Theater, where the "new" KGB flooded the hall with fentanyl gas and caused the death of 129 hostages.
In a brief interview with Ted Koppel on Nightline, Putin admitted that he had stuffed the Kremlin with former KGB officers, but he said it was because he wanted to root out graft.
On September 13, he announced measures to eliminate the election of the country's governors, who should now be appointed by the Kremlin, and to allow only "certified" people — that is, former KGB officers — to run for the parliament.

 Russian Governor Backs Colonel's Pardon (phillyBurbs.com)
MOSCOW - The fate of an army colonel convicted of murdering a Chechen woman will be decided by President Vladimir Putin following a Russian governor's decision to support pardoning the officer, Russian media reported Monday.
The Ulyanovsk region in the Volga area is where Budanov is serving a 10-year sentence for the kidnapping and murder of 18-year-old Heda Kungayeva, whom Budanov accused of being a sniper; its governor was Budanov's former commanding officer in Chechnya.
Budanov's trial was widely watched in Russia and abroad for a signal of how the military would handle reports of abuses in Chechnya, which have undermined the Kremlin's efforts to build trust in the war-ravaged republic.

 Union of Councils for Soviet Jews: Putin Faces Chechnya Dilemma Over Jailed Colonel
A parole board's recommendation Friday that Yuri Budanov should be pardoned 14 months into a 10-year sentence has reopened a case that became a cause celebre among critics of hard-line Russian tactics in rebel Chechnya.
Ramzan Kadyrov, a Chechen strongman loyal to Moscow and son of an assassinated Chechnya president, has reacted with outrage to reports that Budanov might be released.
The case of Budanov, who said he killed 18-year-old Elza Kungayeva because he suspected she was a rebel sniper, will again drag Putin's Chechnya policy under the microscope, as well as the impartiality of Russian justice.

Serdyukov, eyes glistening with heartfelt, fatherly concern, looked down the long table in the officers' canteen at his military base in Chechnya's capital, Grozny, taking in the five foreign journalists in his charge.
Behind them sat an entourage -- a Kremlin spokesman, police and army officers, and three officers of the Russian Federal Security Service, the successor agency of the Soviet KGB -- whose sole task seemed to be to make sure we got nowhere near the objective look on Chechnya that we had come for.
We arrived in Grozny on a rare, tightly controlled three-day tour arranged by the Kremlin -- the only legal way for foreign journalists to travel to Chechnya, where Russia is waging its second war against Islamic separatists since 1994.

"The Kremlin Letter" is poorly structured (the main hero, for example, is kept offscreen for about an hour!), nearly incomprehensible, uninvolving, talky, and loaded with so many stiff performances that you may wonder why they didn't hire some wax-museum figures instead; they'd be a lot more lively.
The lead has all the charm and acting talent of George Lazenby, and Orson Welles is used for decorative puproses only; you never even understand what he's doing in the picture.
