Russia – Zelenskij’s Ukraine attacks the Republic of Tatarstan

A serious military attack against the Muslim-majority Turkic Republic, a founding entity of the Russian Federation. It is urgent to foil the attempt by Zelenskij and his ruling oligarchy to involve the Islamic world in a war which, at least this time, does not have a religious character. Or should the direction be identified in the international subjects of which the dominant regime in Kiev is a proxy?

Kazan, capital of Tatarstan

The news comes directly from Kiev and describes the satisfaction with the military capacity demonstrated by the Ukrainian militias for having struck over 1,300 kilometres away from the Ukrainian-Russian border. This a desperate attempt by the oligarchic regime to raise international tension at a time when it is clear the war is lost, and it is time to negotiate with the winner. The self-assurance of his cacique seems to waver when, finally, he understands he has been exploited by those who had put him in power with anticipatory soap operas. Media power! But the reality is something else, dear Volodimir!

The brilliant idea to strike Muslim territory in the Russian Federation is not a sign of intelligence capacity, neither tactical nor strategic. Using the divergences between Kazan and Moscow, even if existing, to trigger internal conflicts in the Federation is not up to a provincial actor’s standards. Nor, I assume, the Western diplomacies allied to him are so naïve. Tatarstan is a Muslim and Turkic republic, and its destinies concern a tacit understanding between Moscow and Ankara, reached with a difficult negotiation within a more general geopolitical framework. But the “crafty people in the NATO neighbourhood,” evidently, did not inform him of this.

The international community’s intent is, at this moment, to reduce military tension, not to increase it, especially with the winds of war shaking the Middle East because of the “Israeli question”. The European chancelleries know it. Hopefully. Or are they, too, victims of the “crafty people” mentioned above?
