FAREWELL TO 'STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP'?
Russia's relations with the United States and the European Union (EU)
are skittering on a slippery slope, as President Vladimir Putin is
trying to exploit America's military disaster in Iraq and the discomfort
in much of the EU with Bush administration policies and methods. In a
February 12 speech at the annual Munich Conference on Security Policy,
Putin also served notice that he finds the continuing criticism of his
government's human rights stance intolerable. He called on the West to
stop pushing Russia to be more democratic and more respectful of human
rights. In a language that recalled the Bolshevik sarcasm of Nikita
Khrushchev and Leonid Brezhnev, he declared: "Russia is constantly being
taught democracy, and the people who try to teach it don't want to learn
it themselves." Andrey Kolesnikov of the respected Moscow daily
"Kommersant" found Putin's speech so aggressive toward the United States
and NATO that, he wrote, "the only thing missing was a shoe in his hand
to bang on the podium with." Western journalists reporting on the speech
tended to be more inhibited in their characterizations.
