  ALIEN VANDALISM IN ESTONIA’S CAPITAL
The city of Tallinn is assessing the damage after two consecutive nights of violent rioting by gangs of mostly young local Russians. The third night passed relatively quietly. Ostensibly triggered by the expected relocation of the Red Army monument (the Bronze Soldier) from downtown Tallinn, the protests turned into a rampage, with drunkenness and plunder overriding the political or ethnic motivations.

  RED ARMY MONUMENT REMOVED FROM TALLINN AMID MOSCOW-ENCOURAGED RIOTS
At 5 am on Friday, April 27, the Soviet-Russian occupation of Estonia ended in a symbolic sense with the removal of the Red Army monument known as the Bronze Soldier from downtown Tallinn. The expected event triggered riots by young local Russian hooligans and drunks of irrelevant ethnicity during the night preceding the removal.

  OBJECTIONS MOUNTING TO BALTIC SEABED PIPELINE PROJECT
The Russo-German project for a gas pipeline on the Baltic seabed is meeting with growing skepticism and resistance in the region. The Gazprom-led consortium, Nord Stream, has now unwittingly added to those concerns.

  RUSSIA MULLS HUGE OIL TRANSPORT IN THE BALTIC SEA
Addressing the “Pipeline Transport 2007” conference in Moscow on April 17, Transneft president Semyon Vainshtok and Deputy Industry and Energy Minister Andrei Dementiev declared that further expansion of the Baltic Pipeline System (BPS) is currently the Russian government’s number-one priority for oil transportation (Interfax, RIA-Novosti, April 17).

  UNSC RESOLUTION ON THE CONFLICT IN ABKHAZIA: LESS TENDENTIOUS BUT STILL DUBIOUS
A routine six-month prolongation of UNOMIG’s mandate -- the 13 year-old United Nations Observer Mission in Georgia -- resulted in yet another political resolution on Abkhazia by the United Nations Security Council on April 13, after a week-long debate that punctuated a frozen “negotiating process.”

  MOSCOW FAILS TO BRING ABKHAZIA TO UNSC, BUT WILL TRY AGAIN
Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs tried hard to help the Abkhaz “foreign minister,” Sergei Shamba, crash the doors of the U.N. Security Council’s April 9-13 deliberations on the conflict in Abkhazia. However, Moscow was unable to obtain a U.S. visa for Shamba, who is a citizen of Russia.

  PROPUNERI RISCANTE PENTRU “SOLUTIONAREA” CONFLICTULUI DIN TRANSNISTRIA
In precedentele doua editoriale am analizat posibilitatile, inca destul de largi, ale Presedintelui Vladimir Voronin de a-si asigura un loc de onoare in istoria Republicii Moldova in cei doi ani care-i ramin pina la sfirsitul mandatului prezidential. In acele doua comentarii m-am referit la indeplinirea corecta si competenta a Planului de Actiuni R.Moldova-Uniunea Europeana si la posibilitatea reformarii democratice a Partidului Comunistilor.

  VORONIN PRESSURED TO ACCEPT RUSSIAN SETTLEMENT SCENARIO FOR TRANSNISTRIA
In several policy conferences with a small number of top officials in recent days, most recently on April 11, Moldovan President Vladimir Voronin has presented a new Russian scenario to settle the Transnistria conflict. It stems from Russia’s Security Council, whose deputy secretary, Yuri Zubakov, runs the Russian side of the Russia-Moldova negotiating channel, outside the official 5 + 2 format.

  MOSCOW ENLISTS POST-SOVIET SECESSIONIST LEADERS TO PRESSURE THE UN SECURITY COUNCIL
“Parliamentary” leaders and the “foreign ministers“ of Abkhazia, South Ossetia, and Transnistria met in Moscow on April 9 and in Sukhumi on April 10, respectively. By the participants’ explicit admission, the meetings were timed to the United Nations Security Council’s (UNSC) April 10 session on Abkhazia and appeared designed to increase pressure on the UNSC to give in to Russia at the session.

Spuneam într-un comentariu de acum câteva zile, că preşedintelui Vladimir Voronin îi rămân exact doi ani la cârma ţării. În acest răstimp preşedintele are încă mari posibilităţi să promoveze reformele necesare pentru europenizarea Republicii Moldova.

  RUSSIA POISED TO LEAD AN EVOLVING CARTEL OF GAS-EXPORTING COUNTRIES
Convening in Doha, Qatar on April 9, the Gas-Exporting Countries’ Forum (GECF) has taken a first step toward creating an exporters’ cartel at the intergovernmental level. However, the Western gas-exporting countries -- Canada, Norway, and the Netherlands -- oppose this initiative, as does Azerbaijan; while Qatar’s ultimate position seems uncertain (it had to show even-handedness as host and chair of this meeting).

  MOLDOVAN PRESIDENT CHANGING TONE AND NEGOTIATORS WITH RUSSIA ON TRANSNISTRIA
On April 6, Moldova’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Andrei Stratan held talks with his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, in Moscow on a full range of bilateral issues, including the Transnistria conflict. President Vladimir Voronin set the stage for Stratan’s mission through a public supplication for Russian benevolence and a promise to change Moldova’s approach to relations with Russia.

  GEORGIA CREATING ADMINISTRATIVE UNIT IN SOUTH OSSETIA
Last November’s election of a Tbilisi-backed administration under Dmitry Sanakoyev in parts of South Ossetia has resulted in a dual-power situation, challenging the Moscow-installed Tskhinvali authorities to a contest for the local population’s allegiance. Tbilisi is now equipping the Sanakoyev administration -- based in Kurta, just a few kilometers outside Tskhinvali -- with the political and economic tools to conduct and potentially win such a contest.

For reasons undeclared, the United Nations Observer Mission in Georgia (UNOMIG) is procrastinating with its investigation into the March 11 shelling of Georgia’s upper Kodori Valley by helicopters that flew in from Russia and returned there.

  MOSCOW PRESSURING KAZAKHSTAN TO FRUSTRATE WESTBOUND ENERGY TRANSPORT PROJECTS
Kazakhstan is apparently facing Russian pressure to stay out of Western-supported energy projects and to maximize the transit of Kazakh oil and gas via Russia. In recent days, President Nursultan Nazarbayev and other officials seem suddenly to be turning a cold shoulder to proposals for Kazakh participation in two such projects: the Odessa-Brody oil pipeline’s extension from Ukraine into Poland and the planned trans-Caspian gas pipeline.

  INTEGRAREA EUROPEANA SI CAZUL AMBASADORULUI CARPOV
Saptamana aceasta, Presedintele Vladimir Voronin intra in cea de-a doua jumatate a celui de-al doilea si ultim mandat prezidential. In care domenii de activitate poate dansul sa-si incheie mandatul cu succes, asigurindu-si o imagine pozitiva in istoria statului ? Aceasta intrebare se va pune din ce in ce mai des pe parcursul urmatorilor doi ani.

  READING AND MISREADING MOSCOW’S POSITIONS ON KOSOVO
On March 30 in Brussels, the meeting of Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the European Union’s 27 member countries showed for the first time some cracks in the EU’s common front regarding conflict resolution in Kosovo. The EU collectively, as well as the United States and NATO, seek to finalize Kosovo’s transition to Western-supervised independence.

  KOSOVO: RUSSIA'S FIFTH FROZEN CONFLICT?
To continue freezing the resolution of the four post-Soviet secessionist conflicts, Russia needs a fifth frozen conflict in Kosovo and a linkage to make resolution of one dependent on resolution of the others. At the same time, Moscow hopes that a linkage policy could lead to breakthroughs by means of tradeoffs, whereby Russia could sacrifice its clients in one conflict for a free hand in settling another on its own terms.

  TOWARD A RUSSIA-LED CARTEL FOR GAS ?
Proposals for the upcoming Gas-Exporting Countries’ Forum to consider the possibility of forming a cartel (see EDM, March 29) have in recent weeks been aired by the presidents of Russia, Iran, and Algeria, as well as the Emir of Qatar, from among the major exporting countries; and also by Venezuela (now a small but up-and-coming producer and exporter of gas), Trinidad and Tobago (a significant exporter of liquefied gas) and several others from among lesser potential members of such a cartel.

  GAS SUPPLIERS’ CARTEL IDEAS: NOT “OPEC,” BUT CARTEL ALL THE SAME
With common trepidation substituting for a common policy, the West is awaiting the Gas-Exporting Countries’ Forum (GECF) meeting on April 9 in Doha, Qatar. It will be the group’s sixth meeting in almost as many years, but it is the first meeting that might result in a momentous decision to create a cartel-type organization that would control gas supplies to the West.
