The mysterious pro-Russian blogger ‘Saker,’ a leading hasbaratchik sycophant of the Putin regime, is now calling for an Oded Yinon-style partition of the Ukraine to pave the way for a new Russian imperium.
Ukraine is “a completely artificial country,” writes the monomaniacal Russian imperialist ‘Saker,’ salivating over its hypothesized “break-up… into several smaller states.”
The truth is that, despite Russian propaganda, Ukraine is no more “artificial” than any other country, including Russia, a colonial enterprise whose borders have constantly expanded and contracted ad infinitum over the centuries. Russia was once called “Imperial Russia” under the Czars, then the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) under the communists, and now the “Russian Federation”. What could be more synthetic than a country continuously changing its name and its borders as Russia does?
While pro-Russian separatism today in Ukraine’s East was largely stoked up by the Kremlin itself to destabilize the country, organic separatist sentiments and movements have been and continue to be rife within Russia, expressing themselves across dozens of regions. Unforgettably, Russia waged two bloody wars to prevent Chechnya from seceding in the 1990s. Russia’s territorial integrity is so ethereal that significant – albeit brutally suppressed –separatist initiatives exist in the following Russian regions:
- North Caucasus
- Tatarstan (Crimea)
- Ukrainians and Tatars of Crimea seeking reunification with Kiev
- Abazinia in central-north Karachay–Cherkessia
- Kumykia in north Dagestan
- Mari El
- Komi Republic
- Rostov Oblast
- Krasnodar Krai
- North Caucasus near Terek
Russian propaganda aside, the Saker and the busybody blogosphere of Kremlin sycophants fronting as “alt-media” pundits are becoming more and more audacious in their outward displays of fealty to “Dear Leader” Vladimir Putin, bellowing out frenzied exhortations for a Russian neo-Soviet imperium to emerge replacing America as global hegemon.
