As the far-right boosted its strength in nine of the European Union's
(EU) 27 member states at the elections for the European Parliament,
extremist violence hit near-record numbers in some areas of the Russian
Federation. Some commentators blame the global economic crisis for both
developments: soaring unemployment in the EU and cuts to Moscow's
subsidies for the restive Caucasus area. Common to both populations is
dissatisfaction with the center's leaders that do not inspire and with
their policies that fail to counter the economic crisis.

as in our Quote of the Week - that suggest that in Russia, law
enforcement agencies as well as prosecutors have nearly as much
discretionary power as lawmakers.

RUMORS OF WAR, PIOUS HOPES, AND SENSIBLE ADVICE TO OBAMA
Are Russia and Ukraine Trapped in a Systemic Crisis?

Ukraine's vulnerability increases as its economic crisis continues, the
politicians bicker in Kiev, and the Kremlin's thirst for gaining more
influence in what it calls "the near abroad" is undiminished. Do the
odds favor Russian military action as a possibility? Or is a
destabilization of the Crimean peninsula the likely option?

1. RUSSIA WEIGHS UKRAINE'S 'DE-SOVEREIGNIZATION,' UKRAINIANS SAY
