>From the crumbling facade of European unity attempting to deal with
Russia's swagger as the energy superpower to the impoverished South

During the Soviet era, analysts interpreted the state of play in the
Kremlin based on the lineup of leaders on the Red Square reviewing stand
on November 7, the anniversary of the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution, and
parsed the dozens of slogans issued for the day. But last year the
number
one state holiday shifted to November 4, declared by President Vladimir
Putin as National Unity Day, and analysts now focus on the rallies of
political groupings on that day...

DEFINING THE ENEMY

As Russian law gets tougher on extremism, the definition of who
qualifies as an extremist is becoming hazier - and the government's
latitude in making that determination grows wider. At the same time,
Russian law and
its agents of enforcement v and lapses of judgment - fall under
increasing scrutiny by a European court.

2. EU COURT EXPANDS TO COPE WITH CHARGES AGAINST RUSSIA
