President: Russia is dangerous because it realizes time is running out | News | ERR

"President Kersti Kaljulaid has said the Russian Federation presents a danger to its neighbors, not because it wants to expand its empire, but instead because it realizes its time is running short.

Kaljulaid said in an interview with ERR on Monday: "The window of opportunity is closing for Russia; they are considered by top powers as a regional threat for Europeans that countries should deal with by themselves. And this is where the danger lies, which we are always trying to explain to our allies in the west. It is the reason why Russia is dangerous - especially now, as it sees its window closing."

The president added: "Russia is looking for clever ways to ruin our unity, based on common values, [trying to] attract one of us to its side, even with economical reprecussions, to widen cracks in our ranks. This does not cost much - interference in elections requires some mechanisms, but it is far cheaper in essence than physical interference."

Where do you get your silly maps from?
 
Re: Attention EU/USA! President: "Russia" is dangerous because it realizes time is running out

Where do you get your silly maps from?

from the reality of Moscow´s ulus :

"Ramzan Kadyrov, a former warlord installed by Mr Putin, is a grotesque illustration of this. In the most recent presidential election, Chechnya provided 99.7% of its votes for Mr Putin with a turnout of 99.6%. In return, Mr Kadyrov receives subsidies and freedom to subject his people to his own “informal” taxes and Islamic rules. Moscow pays a dictatorial and corrupt Chechnya a vast due in return for Mr Kadyrov pretending to be part of Russia and pledging loyalty to Mr Putin.

If Mr Putin goes and the money runs out, Chechnya could be the first to break off. This would have a dramatic effect on the rest of the north Caucasus region. Neighbouring Dagestan, a far bigger and more complex republic than Chechnya, could fragment. A conflict in the Caucasus combined with the weakness of the central government in Russia could make other regions want to detach themselves from Moscow’s problems.

Tatarstan, home to 2m Muslim ethnic Tatars and 1.5m ethnic Russians, could declare itself the separate khanate it was in the 15th century. It has a strong identity, a diverse economy, which includes its own oil firm, and a well-educated ruling class. It would form a special relationship with Crimea, which Crimean Tartars (at last able to claim their historic land) would declare an independent state.

The Ural region could form a republic—as it tried to do in 1993—around Yekaterinburg, Russia’s fourth-largest city, or else it could form a union with Siberia. Siberia itself could revive its own identity, from a base in the cities of Krasnoyarsk and Irkutsk, and lay claim to its oil-and-gas riches, which it would sell to China. Unlike Russia, China might not have much interest in territorial expansion into the sparsely populated Far East and Siberia, but it could (and already does) colonise these regions economically. Vladivostok and Khabarovsk, two of the largest cities in the Far East, are more economically integrated with China and South Korea than they are with the European part of Russia. "

The peril beyond Putin

"The two states could as well exist separately once disintegrated from Russia. For them, the fate of Orenburg Oblast is important: it cuts them from Kazakhstan, i.e. alternative routes for exports of fuels that would allow the potential state to avoid dependence from Moscow. Orenburg is still dominated by the Russian population, yet it has many Turkic Muslim peoples, including Tatars, Bashkirs and Kazakhs, especially in rural parts. If Bashkortostan and Tatarstan united into one state, they could well add the 2-million Orenburg Oblast, or at least part of it densely populated by Turkic people that would open them the corridor to Kazakhstan.

The second blow

Without Tyumen Oblast, Komi, Tatarstan and Bashkortostan, the Asian and European parts of Russia would be torn apart. Meanwhile, prerequisites already exist for a similar divide within the Asian part of Russia.

The state of Sakha (Yakutia) could emerge in Northern Siberia and the Far East. Currently, the republic is 3.08 million sq km with the population of 954,000 people. The share of Yakuts has already hit 50% after two decades of intense growth (from 33.4% in 1989). Similarly to the scarcely populated areas of the Extreme North, it has huge deposits of nonferrous metals and stones, as well as other minerals, compared to the number of its population. This provides it with a much higher income compared to the rest of Russia. With Russia disintegrated, Sakha could potentially integrate the neighbouring Chukotka Autonomous Okrug mostly populated by innumerous indigenous groups of the Far North (Chukchas, Dolgans, Nenets people, Evenks, Evens, Koryaks and others), parts of Krasnoyarsk, Khabarovsk and Kamchatka krais, as well as Irkutsk Oblast. The same goes for Magadan Oblast which has just 160,000 people (most of them staying there temporarily) but cuts Sakha off the Pacific Ocean. If merged, this “Great Yakutia” could cover 7.15 million sq km (40% of the current Russia) and 1.47 million people. "

Your use of "ulus" is incredibly stupid. The only Ulu is Mongolia.

Neither link shows the map you had in the OP.

And the second link shows a map with what the author believes the failure of the Putin regime would lead to...

A very different map from the one in the OP.

That's a weird map of the Russian federation. It's basically the map of Republics, Obllasts, Okrugs within Russia, but for some reason someone has put a mega state in the middle.

This map would be more accurate:

Actually I can see a bunch of other things that the above map got wrong.

There are no colonial subjects.

And there never was a "Muscovite Czar".

History. Try some for a change.
