9781850652069: Russians in the Former Soviet Republics

The resurgence of Russian nationalism, exemplified by the electoral success of Vladimir Zhirinovsky's Liberal Democratic Party, is driven by support from the 25 million Russians now outside the boundaries of Russia proper since the break-up of the USSR in 1989. They are subjects of states where the majority population is ethnically, linguistically and often denominationally different from themselves; many feel beleaguered and threatened, and are turning to extremists of every hue in an attempt to secure their future. Their fate is closely linked to that of the Russian armed forces, elements of which have lent clandestine military support to Russian minorities in the civil wars in Moldova and Georgia. This is a pioneering work, and contains an introduction explaining the growth of the diaspora from the Middle Ages to 1917; case-studies of areas with large Russian populations; and analyses of the various problems of Russians in non-Russian states and how these might be resolved without armed conflict or forced migrations. The author highlights the importance of the minority question to Russia's ultra-nationalists whose ultimate aim is to re-establish a multi-ethnic Russian empire and who might use the Russian minorities as Hitler used the Sudeten and Polish Germans before 1939.

From the Back Cover:

The break-up of the Soviet Union in 1989 left 25 million Russians living in the 'near abroad', outside the borders of Russia proper. They have become the subjects of independent nation-states where the majority population is ethnically, linguistically, and often denominationally different. The creation of this 'new Russian diaspora' may well be the most significant minority problem created by the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Paul Kolstoe traces the growth and role of the Russian population in non-Russian areas of the Russian empire and then in the non-Russian Soviet republics. In the post-Soviet period special attention is devoted to the situation of Russians in the Baltic countries, Moldova, Belarus, Ukraine and the former Central Asian and Caucasian republics. A chapter written jointly by Paul Kolstoe and Andrei Edemsky of the Institute of Slavonic and Balkan Studies, Russian Academy of Sciences, delineates present Russian policy toward the diaspora. Finally, Kolstoe suggests strategies for averting the repetition of the Yugoslav scenario on post-Soviet soil.
