Moscow which had Pushed for Border Demarcations in North Caucasus Now Sees No Need for Hurry

Paul Goble

            Staunton, June 16 – Having created a problem where none existed by calling for the rapid demarcation of all federal subject borders, the Kremlin now says, via Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov that the Kremlin won’t get involved in the process  and let it go at its own pace (kavkazr.com/a/30005582.html and echo.msk.ru/news/2447569-echo.html).

            And Moscow’s representative on the scene, Aleksandr Matovnikov,, the presidential plenipotentiary for the North Caucasus Federal District, says that Chechnya and Daghestan will put off any focus on border demarcation until next year, allowing time for passions to calm (kommersant.ru/doc/4004211).

            But in Ingushetia which lacked such tolerance, the situation continues to deteriorate.  On the one hand,  the Yevkurov regime reported numerous legal violations in the work of the Mashr human rights organization headed by protest leader Mgomed Mutsolgov, a declaration suggesting the Magas regime will seek to shutter that group (kavkaz-uzel.eu/articles/336787/  and zamanho.com/?p=9421).

            And on the other, the Russian Memorial human rights organization declared the actions of Yevkurov’s government against the head of the Union of Teips of the Ingush People to be illegal repressions, something that will only encourage the Ingush opposition to continue its fight against the regime (doshdu.com/2019/06/18/на-главу-совета-тейпов-ингушетии-снов/).
