“Putin is all about Russia’s interest, which is destabilization,” Andrew McCarthy, a former assistant United States attorney and contributing editor at National Review, a conservative publication, said at a House Intelligence Committee hearing on Wednesday. Mr. McCarthy, who was called as a witness for the Republicans, added that it was “a mistake to portray him on one side or another.”

But the Senate Intelligence Committee has endorsed the intelligence community’s full assessment, calling it sound and saying the varying confidence levels among agencies “appropriately represents analytical differences.” And the 448-page report released in April by Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, also reinforced the conclusion that Russian officials were trying to benefit Mr. Trump.

And there is ample evidence that Russia intervened to favor Mr. Trump, whether it be hacking Democratic servers and publicly releasing the contents it found or the social media campaign that broadly sowed division by exploiting divisive issues but also included the purchase of advertisements that promoted Mr. Trump and the staging of pro-Trump rallies in the United States.

Justice Department officials have said Mr. Durham’s review is not a criminal inquiry, but if he finds criminal wrongdoing he can pursue it. Mr. Boyd called the review a “collaborative” effort with the intelligence agencies.

Ms. Haspel’s willingness to cooperate — shared by Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence — could be influenced by a perception in the agency that Mr. Durham has treated the C.I.A. fairly in the past. He has previously investigated the C.I.A. and the actions of Ms. Haspel, and twice exonerated agency officials.

In 2010, Mr. Durham concluded an investigation into the destruction of videotapes that depicted the torture of suspected terrorists without bringing any criminal charges, officials have confirmed. His report remains secret. Ms. Haspel was the chief of staff to the C.I.A. official who ordered the destruction of the tapes.

The attorney general at the time, Eric H. Holder Jr., had expanded the inquiry to examine questions about the C.I.A.’s mistreatment of detainees. Mr. Durham focused on the deaths of two terrorism suspects in C.I.A. custody, but ultimately decided no criminal charges were warranted.

Window on Eurasia — New Series: Cossackia Lives and Will be Free, Dyomin Says

Paul Goble
            Staunton, June 12 – Few ideas are so often belittled and dismissed by Moscow and Western Russian specialists as that the Cossacks are a nation and that they can reasonably aspire to an independent state as the 1959 US Captive Nations Resolution suggests. But the Cossacks are not only increasingly active but certain they are a nation and will be free.
            (For a discussion of both Cossack aspirations and the dismissive attitudes of others, see the current author’s “Cossack: No Longer an Impossible Dream?” Jamestown Eurasia Daily Monitor, February 21, 2019 at  jamestown.org/program/cossackia-no-longer-an-impossible-dream/and the sources cited therein.)
            A new article by Vyacheslav Dyomin, a Cossack who now lives in the United States, on the Tallinn-based regionalist portal Region.Expert provides perhaps the most comprehensive statement of where the Cossacks are today and what they expect “after the demise of the evil empire” (region.expert/new_cossackia/).
            Everyone, Dyomin begins, is interested in what will happen after the empire, “which some call Russia, others the post-Soviet space, and still others the Muscovite Horde, Bolshevizia or Chekiststan falls apart.”  He says he cannot predict what will happen to all its various parts but is certain that our Cossack lands sooner or later will be freed from the Kremlin yoke.”
            “For many years,” Dyomin acknowledges, he was himself “a prisoner of imperial illusions and loyal to messianic ideas, Rusism, the notion of a god-bearing people and the Third Rome, sincerely supposing that any division of ‘Rus’ would be death to a millennium old holy Russian ideal.”
            He continues: “Before the annexation of Crimea and the beginning of the Russian-Crimean war, it was still possible to believe in this chimera as an ideal model of the past; but after March 2014 only degenerates or in the best case very naïve national idealists have remained supporters of ‘the Russian world,’ ‘the Russian spring,’ and ‘the ingathering of Russian lands.’”
            “Now, before our eyes is occurring a slow but clear process of the degradation and disintegration of the Soviet-Bolshevik power which is the last empire on the Eurasian space and the last stronghold of world imperialism and colonialism” at a time when other empires have fallen apart and many new countries have emerged or re-emerged.
            According to Dyomin, “the present-day RF state is not Russian, not a federative state, not a constitutional one and in general not a republic either.  It isn’t even an empire in the classic European sense of the term but rather a certain great-power Asiatic hybrid” that has arisen out of a mixture of the Golden Horde, the Muscovite principality, the Russian Empire and the USSR.
            It is “an eclectically false ‘Russia,’ dressed in bast shoes, an embroidered shift, a Soviet hat from civil war times, and a fashionable tie from Versace which for simplicity and with accuracy we will call the Muscovite empire or Mosovia,” Dyomin continues. Moscow has become a gigantic metropolis separate from “the colony regions” it exploits.
            But even its oil and gas reserves will not save it, the Cossack writer says. And “the de-imperialization begun in the early 1990s by a revolution from above to all appearances will be completed in the coming years by a revolution from below,” one that will not begin in well-fed Moscow but in the regions the capital exploits.
            The Cossacks are very much part of this, Dyomin says. Their experience of “unsuccessful attempts to free themselves from colonial dependence has shown them that while the Muscovite empire is alive … separating from it is practically impossible” but that when it weakens and begins to fall apart, the Cossacks like other nations have a chance.
            First of all, the old imperial edifice needs to be dismantled and the territory “cleansed from centuries of slavery.”  Only then, he continues, will it be possible to “build in its place bright new republic houses.” The Americans are among the leaders in understanding this, and the still enslaved peoples of Muscovia are inspired by the Captive Nations Week ideals.
            Those ideals include the recognition of Cossackia. That term, Dyomin says, includes all the territories of the former Russian Empire “from Ukraine to Siberia” and was popularized by Cossack emigres in Prague and elsewhere in the 1920s and 1930s in journals like Volnoye Kazachestvo, Kazakiya, and Kazak.
            Indeed, Dyomin says, “free Cossacks” became “the common name of a number of Ukrainian-Cossack groups which arose in emigration and whose members called themselves that and their effoorts the Free Cossack movement.” They opposed and were opposed by Cossack imperialists who continued to view themselves as a social stratum serving the empire.
            The Free Cossacks then and now seek recognition of the Cossacks “as a people who have suffered genocide.” Their numbers are growing, and they have formed various organizations and groups not only in the emigration but as possible within the current borders of the Russian Federation.
            What kind of a state will the Cossacks form? “A federation like the United States or a confederation like the European Union?” Dyomin says that the latter is more likely at least in the first stages of the collapse of the Muscovite empire given the diversity and dispersal of the Cossack nation.

Window on Eurasia — New Series: Moscow Views Russian Federation as Successor to USSR, Not to RSFSR, Shtepa Says

Paul Goble
            Staunton, June 12 – By dismissing the 1920 Tartu Treaty between the RSFSR and the Republic of Estonia as being of only historical interest, Moscow underscores its view that the Russian Federation of today is the successor to the USSR rather than to the RSFSR, according to Vadim Shtepa.
            In Tallinn’s Postimees, the editor of the Region.Expert portal says that he bases that conclusion on Russian foreign ministry spokesperson Mariya Zakharova’s statement that any reference to the Tartu treaty is “a provocation” rather than being part of Russia’s legal record (arvamus.postimees.ee/6702498/vadim-stepa-kas-venemaa-on-olemas; in Russian at region.expert/russr/).
            This suggests, Shtepa argues, that “the current Russian authorities do not recognize their historical predecessors” and that “present-day Russia considers itself the heir not of the RSFSR but of the USSR which arose only in 1922 and later included in itself both the RSFSR and all the other ‘union republics’ that the Bolsheviks initially promised the right of self-determination.”
            Zakharova said specifically that “the Tartu Treaty long ago belongs to history. Its effect like that of other international agreements which Estonia had including with Soviet Russia in the period of 1920 to 1940 ceased on August 6, 1940 with the inclusion of Estonia into the USSR. For us, this subject is forever closed” (rbc.ru/politics/15/05/2019/5cdc404e9a7947298ac8c566).
            “With these words,” Shtepa continues, Zakharova “in fact recognized that [the Tartu Treaty] had been replaced by another, the sadly well-known Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact” which made the inclusion of Estonia into the USSR possible. “For Zakharova, this pact continues to remain in effect.”
            “Even the USSR in the era of Perestroika in 1989 recognized the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact and its secret protocols as ‘legally baseless and without effect from the moment of their being signed,’” the Russian regionalist says. “But the present, as it were ‘post-Soviet’ Russia is again making references to this pact!”
            That shows that the current Kremlin regime “considers itself to be the legal successor namely of the Stalinist USSR and that in turn means that it does not see itself “as one of he post-Soviet countries but as a ‘reduced USSR.’ Such an imperial mentality, dangerous for the country’s neighbors, is actively being promoted by its propaganda.”
            By so doing, however, Moscow leaves itself in a paradoxical situation. “In this case, the Russian Federation as a state denies itself, as politically it appeared on June 12, 1990 when the RSFSR proclaimed its sovereignty and declared that its laws were more important than those of the union.”
            “The Kremlin’s official ideology today is built on a combination of the ults of two historical empires, the tsarist and the Soviet,” Shtepa continues; and that has consequences for how one should evaluate the current “Russian Federation.” It did not become a democratic federation and so may be called “a failed state.”
            “No contemporary development in an empire can happen,” he suggests. All that it can do is try to seize neighboring territories in the hope of restoring its past “’imperial greatness’” – and do with to the accompaniment of “loud anti-Western propaganda which recalls the position of late Stalinism.”
            According to Shtepa, “a repressive and aggressive empire does not have any chances for survival. This is already being demonstrated by Russian citizens themselves in various regions who have come out against the Kremlin’s colonial policies” be they in Arkhangelsk and the Komi Republic or closer by in the Pechora district of Pskov Oblast.
            The last is especially interesting because that district was assigned to Estonia by the 1920 Tartu Treaty that Moscow doesn’t want to view as part of Russia’s historical and legal record.  Zakharova’s words strongly suggest that that the Putin regime is “very much concerned” that Pskov residents will begin to call for “the restoration of historical borders.”
            They will certainly do so, Shtepa says, “when the empire falls apart the next time.”

Shocked by the arrest of leading investigative journalist Ivan Golunov on June 6, Russian civil society and independent media reacted quickly by launching coordinated campaigns as well as individual acts of solidarity that are unprecedented in the 20 years that Vladimir Putin has dominated Russian politics. Such large-scale demonstration of outrage, combined with concern in the Kremlin about Putin’s low ratings have led to Golunov being freed on June 11. More public actions are planned this week in Moscow to seek punishment for those involved in Golunov’s arrest, and to prevent further cases of trumped-up charges against critics of the Russian government.

One of the earliest and longest shows of public support was an improvised ‘selfie studio’ on Petrovka street 38 in central Moscow, in front of the headquarters of the Moscow city police. For several days between June 7 and 11, people waited for hours to have their picture taken in that spot as a sign of solidarity with Golunov.

Petrovka, 38, right now

This twitter user present on June 7 says in this short video she counted more than 110 persons waiting in the queue for their selfie to be taken at Petrovka 38. She uses the term ‘one-person demonstrations’ which is the only form of public demonstration that does not require a permission from local authorities in Russia.

I counted exactly 100 people in the queue for the ‘one-person demonstration’, while I was filming this video on #Petrovka38. When I finished, there were about 110 people, People are protesting against the suspicious arrest of journalist #IvanGolunov.

Similar selfies were taken across Russia and posted online as a sign of solidarity. More traditional methods, such as online petitions also gathered over 180,000 signatures as in a petition posted on www.change.org.

Yet the campaign took unexpected and humorous turns, as in the case of a restaurant in the city of Yekaterinburg in Central Russia that offered free beer to any client sporting a T-shirt with the now iconic message “I and we are Ivan Golunov”.

The Ogoniok restaurant in Yekaterinburg promised a free beer to anyone coming in a T-shirt with the sign I and we are Ivan Golunov”.

Such solidarity was also echoed by media and some celebrities. On June 6, three leading and more independent newspapers, Vedomosti, RBC and Kommersant, agreed to come out with the same iconic message in the exact same layout, again an unprecedented case of media solidarity in Putin’s Russia. Copies were sold out in a few hours and are now on sale online as memorabilia.

On June 9, Kommersant, Vedomosti and RBC, three leading Russian business newspaper, came out with near-identical cover pages in support of Ivan Golunov, the arrested journalist // Evgeny Feldman for Meduza, under CC BY 4.0

Popular singer Andrey Makarevich of the legendary rock band Mashina Vremeni took part in a video campaign (here at 03.21) , along with other celebrities all calling for Golunov’s release and a fair investigation. As a result, his concert planned for June 12, marking Russia Day, was suddenly cancelled last minute.

Following Golunov’s release, many are calling for more action to punish law enforcement forces that fabricated the case, but also to talk about other similar cases that have not received such coverage and attention and to prevent this from happening to other civic activists and independent journalists.

Только массовое отчуждение заставит их почувствовать себя оккупантами. А это ощущение очень ускоряет исторический процесс!
У поляков, кстати, однажды получилось…

Новости – Настоящее Время: Власти Великобритании подписали разрешение на экстрадицию Ассанжа в США

Глава МВД Великобритании Саджид Давид 13 июня подписал разрешение на выдачу США основателя Wikileaks Джулиана Ассанжа. Несколько дней назад стало известно, что США подали официальный запрос на экстрадицию австралийца. 

“Я хочу видеть, как вершится справедливость, и у нас есть законный запрос об экстрадиции. Но окончательное решение все равно должен принять суд”, – подчеркнул министр. Суд по выдаче австралийца пройдет в Лондоне 14 июня. 

В США основателю Wikileaks совокупно ​предъявлены 17 обвинений, в том числе по статьям о шпионаже. Сроки по большинству из этих статей суммируются, поэтому ему может грозить до 175 лет тюрьмы. 

Главное обвинение связано с нарушением закона о шпионаже за обнародование секретных военных и дипломатических документов Пентагона и Государственного департамента в 2010 году. Речь идет о одной из самых известной публикации WikiLeaks: портал обнародовал тысячи секретных документов США о ходе войны в Афганистане и Ираке, в том числе об инцидентах, связанных с расстрелом мирных жителей.

Основным человеком, который организовал утечку, был военнослужащий Брэдли (Челси) Мэннинг, а Wikileaks лишь опубликовал документы.

Но, согласно обвинительному заключению, Ассанж “неоднократно подталкивал свои источники, в том числе Мэннинга, к тому, чтобы получать секретную информацию, красть ее и передавать Wikileaks для опубликования”. 

В обвинении также сказано, что когда Ассанж получил первые документы от Мэннинга, он предложил военнослужащему достать ему больше секретных сведений и согласился помочь со взломом паролей в военном ведомстве, где тот тогда работал. Сам Ассанж это неоднократно отрицал, но ему все равно предъявлено обвинение в хакерстве. 

Как утверждают обвинители, Ассанж своей публикацией “раскрыл имена информаторов и связных”, в том числе сотрудничавших с США граждан Афганистана, Ирака, Китая и Ирана, что стало причиной “смертельной угрозы” их жизням.  

Представители Wikileaks в ответ на эти обвинения заявляли, что обвинения со стороны властей США – “конец как журналистики, так и Первой поправки” и настаивают, что Ассанжа преследуют именно за его журналистскую деятельность. 

Прокуратура США в свою очередь заявила, что Ассанж “не журналист”. 

Сейчас Ассанж отбывает наказание в тюрьме в Великобритании: его приговорили к 50 неделям тюрьмы за нарушение условий освобождения под залог. Речь идет о событиях 2012 года. Тогда Ассанжа разыскивали США, и одновременно он был обвинен в Швеции в сексуальных домогательствах. Поскольку эти обвинения подпадали под уголовную статью, Швеция издала международный ордер на арест Ассанжа, и по нему его задержали в Великобритании.

Защита Ассанжа добилась его выхода на свободу под залог. Но как только это было сделано, Ассанж немедленно нарушил условия освобождения и укрылся в посольстве Эквадора в Лондоне, где ему было предоставлено убежище.

Покинуть посольство ему так и не удалось: несколько лет основатель Wikileaks прожил в здании фактически на положении узника. Постепенно его отношения с эквадорскими властями становились все хуже, а власти США продолжали требовать, чтобы страна выдала Ассанжа. В итоге 11 апреля 2019 года британская полиция арестовала основателя WikiLeaks прямо в посольстве, пройдя туда по приглашению дипломатов. 

В сентябре 2018 года адвокат Ассанжа сообщал, что его подзащитный рассматривал приглашение Сената США: ему предложили в закрытом режиме выступить перед комитетом по разведке, чтобы рассказать о возможном вмешательстве России в американские выборы и взломе серверов руководства Демпартии США в 2016 году в обмен на снятие обвинений в США. Но никаких договоренностей по этому приглашению так и не было достигнуто.
