 NCSJ - Moscow Times: Ukraine Election
Moscow has an interest in Yanukovych winning, but not at the cost of serious destabilization of its neighbor, with which Russia enjoys extensive ties and an almost open border.
Moscow does not consider Yushchenko a democrat because on issues that are of fundamental importance to Russia -- such as the status of the Russian language, Ukrainian-Russian relations, Ukrainian-U.S. relations and religious-political issues -- his views are in the minority and, if elected, he will most probably foist his views on the majority.
Moscow fears that under Yushchenko, Ukraine's military industrial complex will will be paid a visit by the U.S. intelligence services, as a result of which Russia will be forced to cease military cooperation with the Ukraine.

MOSCOW — The bullet-riddled body of a Moscow region mayor was found in a children’s playground close to his home early Friday in what prosecutors believe was a contract murder.
Dorkin was shot 10 times in the head and four times in the chest, Channel One said.
Dorkin, 52, had since 1991 presided over the administration of Dzerzhinsky, a major military-industrial city in the region, and investigators believe his murder was connected to his official duties, said the spokeswoman, who declined to give her name.

 The St. Petersburg Times - News - Moscow Marks Bombing Anniversary
MOSCOW - The mourning following the deadly terrorist assault on the United States coincided with the second anniversary of the most devastating in a series of apartment blasts that rocked Russia in 1999, killing some 300 people.
Two years after the tragedy, investigations of the explosions in Moscow and the southern town of Volgodonsk have made little progress.
Some media reports linked Frantsuzov with the Moscow bombings on Ulitsa Guryanova and Kashirskoye Shosse, but others said the allegations arose because in July 1999 Gochiyayev came to Moscow and used Frantsuzov's passport to register at a hotel.

For although we must now hail the warlords of the Northern Alliance as noble defenders of civilization, the fact is that for some time they have also functioned as one of the world's biggest drug-dealing operations.
Indeed, one of the main sticking points between the holy warriors of the alliance and their ideological brethren in the Taliban has been control of the profitable poppy, which by God's grace grows so plentifully in a land otherwise bereft of natural resources.
Come harvest time, the drug lords -- sorry, the noble warlords -- will take their cut and ship the dope off to pollute the minds of decadent infidels in the West.

 Moscow Times EO Article
With a reputation as a converted Russophile and an actor interested in psychologically complex roles, it was perhaps no surprise that British actor Ralph Fiennes should have taken to the demanding role of Eugene Onegin, romantic hero and cynical, contemptuous playboy.
In April 1997, he came to Moscow for the premiere of the Oscar-winning film "The English Patient." In London in the same year he starred in the title role of the Almeida theater's sell-out production of Anton Chekhov's "Ivanov," which also toured in Russia.
Critics in Russia have suggested Fiennes would be perfect as Prince Myshkin in a staging of Fyodor Dostoyevsky's "Idiot," but the actor is unperturbed by their notorious touchiness regarding attempts by foreign directors to stage their national classics.

Away from the scrutiny of the Moscow press, roughly one-fourth of the country's provinces have adopted flagrantly unconstitutional measures which restrict the rights of religious minorities.
The rapid spread of such measures, and the courts' failure to curb them, suggest that Russia is not even trying to become a state governed by law.
An executive order in the Tver region, northwest of Moscow, denies accreditation to religious groups which are "structural subunits of foreign religious organizations located outside the borders of the Russian Federation"- -language which could easily be interpreted to cover all Roman Catholics.

 Nation & World | Hitler's birthday met with fear in Moscow | Seattle Times Newspaper
MOSCOW — A leading Moscow university ordered its foreign students on Thursday to stay in their dormitories for the next three days due to fears of ethnic violence before and after Adolf Hitler's birthday.
The move by Sechenov Moscow Medical Academy underscores the failure of Russian authorities to stem xenophobia and racism that are feeding a marked rise in hate crimes.
In the past, Moscow authorities have also closed some outdoor markets, where many traders are dark-skinned foreigners, for several days before Hitler's birthday to avoid violence.

The paradox here is that the reformers are thus appealing to the worst qualities of the Soviet experience, to what actually led to the superpower's demise.
They're remembering the "big battalions" and the "strong hand." And at the same time, the authorities are trying not to think about the more attractive features of Soviet society, particularly in its early, heroic period — relative (i.e.
And at a time when all that was Soviet was called awkward, dangerous and outdated, many journalists explained to us that our system of education was no good, because innumerable hours were spent studying the history of the party and Marxism-Leninism.

Two women at the top of their game are set to electrify the Moscow concert scene this summer — on June 7 at B1 Maximum, Macy Gray and on July 13 at Olimpiisky Stadium, Nelly Furtado.
And while a list of things we won’t miss about Moscow might well fill a book, even the most raving of Russophobes would admit that there are certain charms that belong to the Russian capital alone.
It would seem that the laws of supply and demand don’t really apply to Moscow: as steakhouses proliferate wildly, the price of an average steak has soared into the stratosphere, with some restaurants demanding as much as 2,000 rubles for a 500-ounce cut of meat.

 Russian Military Hazing, Abuse, Desertion - CDI Russia Weekly #239
Similar to a recent mass desertion from a unit near Moscow, the soldiers took a train to the city and went directly to the St. Petersburg office of the Soldiers' Mothers Committee to complain of abuse by their commanding officers.
This abuse often leads to desertions, shooting incidents and widespread suicides by conscripts who are physically and sometimes sexually assaulted, according to evidence gathered by Soldiers' Mothers and other human rights groups.
But the recent mass desertions from units near Moscow and St. Petersburg seem to be a special case.

I have been teaching in the MGU program this fall and have been deeply impressed by the work of the faculty and administration in building this new school at a very difficult time.
The School of Public Administration was launched as an institute of MGU in 1993 by rector Viktor Sadovnichy, under the leadership of Dean Alexei Surin, and has been growing by leaps and bounds around a new model of public administration education for Russia.

Shocked by gory images of federal servicemen burned in their tanks by Chechen rebels, the public became increasingly critical of the first war as it dragged on, and the Kremlin eventually backed down and negotiated a peace agreement with the separatists in August 1996.
By the time the second war began, however, federal authorities had designed and introduced a comprehensive system to limit the access of journalists to Chechnya and shape their coverage.
Journalists complying with the rules had to rely on spokesmen of the federal troops on the ground or, in Moscow, on Putin’s longtime Chechnya spokesman, Sergei Yastrzhembsky, or the officials who showed up for regular off-the-record briefings at the Rosinformtsentr press center, which was specifically set up to provide the Kremlin’s spin on the war.
