Putin issues veiled threat against NATO-member Estonia

Russian President Vladimir Putin just upped the ante significantly today by issuing what I’d consider a veiled threat against NATO-member Estonia.

According to Reuters, a Russian diplomat expressed concerns about the treatment of ethnic Russians in Estonia, and then compared it to Russia’s concerns about its ethnic minority in Ukraine, which was their justification for invading and annexing Ukraine.

It was clearly a veiled threat against a member of NATO.  The question is why.

There’s been concern for a while about other moves Putin might make against other former (coerced) members of the Soviet Union.  Estonia is one of those.

Outright annexation might or might not be a possibility – it depends on the specific country, as Russia would be more loathe to invade a NATO country than it would a non-NATO border-state like Ukraine.  The assumption being that NATO would have no choice but to respond with military action against an invasion of one of its member states.

At the same time, a separate Reuters story reports that Russia is fomenting a separatist movement among Serbs in Bosnia.

And, the threat to the rest of Ukraine is hardly over.  There are continuing concerns that Putin’s next move may be to take over part of all of Ukraine.

Putin could also try piecemeal moves that would still increase Russian influence, but fall short of acts-of-war big enough to provoke a significant western response.  Not that it’s clear that the US or Europe would lift much of a finger if Putin grabbed the entirety of Ukraine, but he could also simply grab strategic parts of eastern Ukraine, including specific facilities and resources, while leaving the region still a part of Ukraine.

As for Estonia, while a Russian land-grab is (one hopes) unlikely, clearly Putin has decided to up the stakes.  In part, he might be trying to weasel some kind of concessions out of the Baltic countries.  He might also be trying to scare the US and Europe into backing off of countering him further on Ukraine.  I.e., push me too far in Ukraine and I’ll grab Estonia.

Either way, Putin doesn’t seem terribly deterred at the moment.

If this isn’t a reignition of the Cold War, then what exactly is it?

    Well now it makes sense why Russia would want to act.

    It’s the snipers that make it a coup and it is the snipers that make Nixon’s resignation irrelevant as simile.

    Fuck that crazy Marxist lesbian bitch. I know it’s hard for some to believe, but that wild-eyed freak could be even far worse than Ochoombo. She is evil and crazy but she is not subhuman, which in a way makes her more dangerous than a drugged-up faggot ape boy.

  • Karl

    Russians need to import Nordics and Baltics because their own subhuman Slavic population can’t compete with the developed world. Russians are basically primitive brutes who were Mongolized many generations ago and do not belong to the modern human race. Unfortunately, we lost the opportunity during the Truman era to bomb Russia into the Stone Age, along with China. Now we have a so-called President in the USA who is, as one rock star put it, a “subhuman mongrel” who only gets passionate about the military when he is talking about gays in the military. That is Ochoombo’s agenda: gays, lesbians, drugs, hip-hop, and soak the evil white men to feed the lazy and worthless blacks and subhuman mestizo Mexicans. The subhuman KGB man Putin understands Ochoombo’s weakness and will exploit it to the hilt. And if the crazy Marxist bitch Hillary becomes President in 2016, you can basically kiss America goodbye forever. It is already going fast. The only hope is an uprising of the core loyal White European population, through democratic and peaceful means, to induce our so-called representatives to act against Ochoombo now before it is too late. We need NATO troops in Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania and we need to make it clear to Vlad the Shirtless that we can exterminate his so-called Army in about ten minutes if he dares to attack us.

    The excerpt that I quoted above, the one that starts at the :58 mark, is the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine speaking (a man’s voice). He’s having a conversation with Victoria Nuland. I agree with you about Nuland’s less than stellar career.

  • eggroll_jr

    Nuland is currently Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, not an ambassador. Despite her impeccable pedigree and trophy husband, her career has not exactly been stellar, from the “Fuck the EU” quote to her cookie distribution stunt. But hey, it’s your tax money at work.

  • eggroll_jr

    Kai Stenvall’s recent painting, “Putin in the Narva” (the river between Russia and Estonia.

  • eggroll_jr

    John, you’re better than this. The joke in diplomatic circles is how rarely Putin has mentioned the Baltics over the past decade. Why? Because most Russian-speakers in the Baltics (and definitely those with higher degrees or trade skills) are totally at peace with earning more and living better than their counterparts in, say, St. Petersburg.

    The Gulf of Finland, which includes Russia’s Baltic ports and major oil and gas pipelines and shipping routes, as well as the main import route for high-value goods into Russia, is a militarily sensitive issue for the Russians. This is always the issue when NATO comes up in the Baltic context. Putin cut his political teeth in St. Petersburg, and St. Petersburg is a town that still remembers the 900-day siege in WWII.

    The worry for Estonians and Finns (who have their own NATO debate at the moment) largely centers around the economic impacts of Putin’s recent, very reckless, decision to violate international law, not territorial incursions. Putin’s popularity is based in part with his devotion to certain groups like pensioners, who have seen their measly pensions increase steadily in real terms under Putin. Unfortunately, all this largesse has been financed by hydrocarbons. He has failed to diversify the Russian economy away from its “resource curse” to a modern service-based economy. This puts him in a precarious situation now that the Russian economy has gone flat and the ruble has crashed. The same people that depended on him now for real income gains now have less purchasing power. And when they get unhappy, as the Russians say, the only option is improving crowd-control methods.

  • Reposts

    It’s simple, we don’t believe the mainstream media party line anymore; you keep banging out the same script, not realising that the very internet you use to promote it has educated us to be more critical of what we read. Especially when it comes at us from all quarters in the same shrill tones (with that little lift at the end Hague does so well), and following the same ‘scare the children with “Putin the bogey-man”‘ plot line.

    Are you saying that democracy doesn’t matter anymore, as long as a coup is progressive, pro-European and pro-globalisation?

    The sheer volume of useless articles with the same line is an insult to intelligence. Where’re the critical skills so much vaunted in the university programms? It all looks as a massive PR exercise utterly devoid of any rational argumentation.

  • MyrddinWilt

    The GOP hasn’t got a clue and neither has the press.

    For example, long story on how Ukraine is in debt to Russia and how that gives Putin leverage. Presumably that’s in a world where sovereign states are likely to bother paying off bonds held by foreign states that have just invaded their territory. Repudiation of a debt in such circumstances is not default because other investors won’t be planning to invade Ukraine.

    Another area of silliness is the idea that Putin can threaten the talks with Iran somehow. Iran’s interest in a deal has only increased and much better to make a deal now when the US has more urgent priorities than a dispute going back to the Reagan-Carter years than blow the US off now and have to deal later. The lesson countries like Iran and Belarus are drawing from Putin’s action is that Putin is the type of person who signs a peace treaty and then invades anyway.

    Three months ago Putin had the whole of Ukraine firmly in the Russian sphere of influence and the base in Sevastopol on indefinite lease. Now thanks to his own actions he is only left with the Crimea and that only because of a military occupation and the promise of massive tax breaks and economic support. He has lost the rest of Ukraine already and he may lose Belarus as well. And his hold on Crimea may not look too solid five or ten years out. Russia can’t build a bridge or bring in a water supply because 90% of any money that is spent is going to be stolen just like it was in Sochi.

    Armed gangs don’t work too well as a means of intimidating a population long term. The opposition tends to arm up in response. And the next stage is sectarian conflict like in Chechnya.

    Sending the army in is easy. Getting them out is the hard part.

    After reading both of your comments above, I agree that it feels a little like the prelude to WWII only because a larger country is starting to gobble up other countries. I think the similarity ends there. I don’t think war between major powers is even likely. John simply restated the well-known agreement between NATO countries that an attack on one NATO country, such as Estonia, is an attack on all NATO countries. Putin understands that, and I think he’ll act accordingly.

    As far as your comments about the chances of Russia’s social climate changing, I agree that you cannot force that. However, I’m sure that the relatively sophisticated population of Moscow is closely watching what happens in Kiev. Putin’s fear—and my hope—is that if Ukraine succeeds in creating a freer society, that Moscovites (and later, Russians in other parts of the country) will demand the same freedom. It will happen in Ukraine before it happens in Russia, which is why I think it’s so important for Ukraine to succeed as a society with free speech and free elections, something that Russia doesn’t have yet.

  • MyrddinWilt

    Well Republicans wish that the US was doing the same because they are also fascists at heart.

  • Mike

    Never seen a better statement on this situation

  • MyrddinWilt

    Under the circumstances, it was appropriate to place them in the provisional government. The people who toppled Yanukovych would not understand a government that included supporters of Yanukovych who defected but not their own leaders.

    When people are carrying flags it is important to know why they are carrying them before jumping to assumptions. Whatever theories those skinheads had about why they weren’t getting a fair chance in life before the fall of Yanukovych probably changed when they saw the palace he had built with the money he stole from them.

    As I recall, John McCain suggested that we should be at war in Iraq and Afghanistan for 100 years… in addition to his fun rendition of the Beach Boys song “Barbara Ann”: “Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran.”

  • FLL

    From your comment: “…And I mean everyone.”

    Of course everyone who is discussing this is onto what Putin is up to. The only difference is that some commenters are amused by Putin’s actions over the past year and his future plans, which strikes me as a personal problem.

  • MyrddinWilt

    There is a huge difference between invading Crimea or South Ossettia and invading Estonia.

    As I was saying before the anti-gay laws were passed, Putin has been copying Hitler’s tactics for quite a while. Ever since the Orange revolution in fact. He hired a group of street gangs and formed a bunch of stormtrooper movements, the biggest one of which was called Nashi. Now he is into a bit of annexing.

    But the comparisons are not perfect and the biggest difference is that after Crimea everyone is onto what Putler is up to. And I mean everyone.

  • FLL

    If you use the Victoria Nuland tapes as part of your discussion about the U.S. government’s preferences, then please take a moment to actually listen to the Nuland tapes rather than ignoring the Nuland tapes and writing your own script, which is what I think some commenters on this blog do. I’ve seen comments suggesting that the U.S. government is happy to see people from the right-wing party, Svoboda, in the interim Ukrainian government. The Victoria Nuland tapes indicate the opposite. Here is an excerpt from the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine:

    In terms of the process moving ahead, we want to keep the moderate democrats together. The problem is going to be Tyahnybok and his guys.

    Obviously, the U.S. ambassador supports the Ukrainian politicians that he describes as “moderate democrats” (with a small “d,” of course). He describes the current leader of Svoboda, Oleh Tyahnybok, “and his guys” as a problem. What gives you Putin apologists the right to fabricate your own conversation in which the U.S. government is happy with including Svoboda in the interim government? That is called lying. Here is a YouTube link to the Victoria Nuland tapes. The excerpt quoted above starts at the :58 mark. Please listen:

  • MyrddinWilt

    Don’t read too much into what the Russian diplomats say other than they are poorly disciplined and liable to say stupid stuff. They are liable to turn up to negotiations completely drunk.

    The fact that Putin has to put up with such incompetents says rather a lot about his true strength and capabilities. Like George W. Bush, Putin is really a clownish thug. That doesn’t mean he isn’t dangerous. Bush has caused more deaths than anyone else in the 21st century so far.

    Now if we had listened to John ‘fuckwit’ McCain we would still be in Iraq, have no plans to leave Afghanistan and have started fresh wars with Iran and Syria. Meanwhile Ghadaffi would still be in power in Libya. NATO might well have collapsed due to the allies having deserted. I think we are in a better position to protect Estonia as things stand.

  • Silver_Witch

    Did not mean to offend you John…I simply mean that media on both the left and right seem to pushing for war, or at the very least trying to get people looking at the potential for war (perhaps to keep our eyes of something else).

    Do you think the right is wanting to fight Russia because they are cruel to gay and trans people or non-Christians – of course not. Do you think if we win the “War” that they will be treated better – of course not. Until the people of Russia grow-up, just like the people of the United States, there will be no change.

    If you are advocating war because the Russians are mean to their people, perhaps we should clean up our own backyard, work to get food stamps for those who really really need them, or better get the unemployment extended. Maybe find some jobs for the people who haven’t worked in a while. Seems to me we have plenty of serious problems here and getting people to focus on YET another war (albeit this time against those scary Russians who have been our nemesis forever) is simply a way to distract from our own failings.

    I simply wish that we let people fight their own battles for a while.

  • wearing out my F key

    In case you hadn’t noticed, Victoria Nuland wasn’t just showing off her school-yard vocabulary.

    “Now, if you want to claim letting Ukraine begin the process of joining
    the EU and actually turning in to a modern country, rather than being
    absorbed by a country that can’t make TVs that don’t explode, guilty as
    charged.”

    I think there might be a word missing in this sentence. or two. I don’t know what you’re trying to say.

    Are we still in the “makin’ people free” business? i thought Iraq put an end to that ridiculous line of reasoning.

  • ronbo

    What exactly will we achieve with a war (other than more dead American kids, more debt to the MIC and another un-winnable war)?

    What was once Russia is once again Russian. How is this different from NATO forcing Kosovo into a union with Serbia? Oh yes, the people of Kosovo DIDN’T want the union… unlike the overwhelming vote in Crimea.

    Should have learned from the GW Bush experience: SMART is actually strong.

But I’m still very confused by the far left that wishes we’d stop oppressing the world, and then when we try to let the world join our little club, and walk away from tyrants next door, suddenly we’re bad guys again.

    Depends how you define “want war.” I am not a pacifist. I believe that some wars are necessary. I don’t welcome them. I also don’t run away from them. What Russia is doing, has been doing, is very dangerous. And it keeps getting worse. Their horrific actions towards gay and trans people over the past year was just the beginning. It just keeps getting worse and worse. I don’t want war. But if they touch a NATO country, there’s going to be an all-out war.

    The members of the Ukrainian parliament informed Yanukovych that they had enough votes to impeach him and remove him from office. Their rationale, no doubt, was that Yanukovych had just had at least 80 protestors shot dead in cold blood. After being informed of his lack of support in parliament, Yanukovych left early the next morning. I will spell this out letter by letter:

    T-h-a-t i-s n-o-t a c-o-u-p

    As you well know, Richard Nixon was forced to resign from office under the same circumstances when a group of Republican senators informed him that there were enough votes in Congress to impeach him and remove him from office. The only difference was that Nixon had the offices of the opposition party burglarized, whereas Yanukovych had 80 protestors shot dead, killed in cold blood. Will you kindly stop calling Yanukovych’s resignation a coup? Thank you, in advance.

  • caphillprof

    The only reason he might not think he can retake former parts of the USSR is if any of those are members of NATO. It’s true that NATO did nothing when Russia took Crimea, but Ukraine is not a NATO member, so NATO wasn’t obliged to help Ukraine. Estonia is a NATO member, and an attack on one NATO member is an attack on all NATO members. I’m sure Putin understands that.

  • FLL

    Thank you for finally posting a comment that makes some sense. Svoboda’s current representation in the interim cabinet is out of proportion to their popular support. Did the Obama administration have something to do with that? I think that is extremely unlikely. If anything, Obama seems to have been caught by surprise by events in Ukraine. More likely, the interim government was so shaky and unsure of its ability to take power after Yanukovych left that they gave Svoboda cabinet posts to make sure of their help and support… just in case Yanukovych tried to make a comeback, which did seem likely for a short time after he left. After the May 25 elections, I doubt if Svoboda will more than the 10% of seats in parliament that they have now. I don’t think that will give them enough clout to get as many cabinet seats as they have now.

    My modest proposal, wearing out my F key, is that we give the elections a chance since they are only two months away.

    (2) The counterpunch author’s accusation implicit in “Why US Journalists and Bloggers Have Blood on Their Hands” is trollish.
