Putin's Verdun: While the Crimea Burns, Russia Prepares a Trap for the West in Estonia



Today most of the focus of the international community has been focused on the military actions in the Crimea. Having formally annexed the region yesterday, Russian forces have begun an assault on the remaining Ukrainian forces in the peninsula. After initially vowing resistance, Kiev appears to have thrown in the towel and ordered a withdrawal. This is isn't surprising. Post-referendum, this is largely a mopping up operation.

It is, however, a mopping up operation that is serving the purpose of covering a more ominous development. At the end of my extended piece yesterday comparing current developments to those after Munich, I mentioned that if I were Barack Obama, I would be quite concerned about Latvia. Based on today's ultimatum to Estonia, it appears I was off by one Baltic State.

Putin has both strategic and geopolitical goals right now. The former were completed by securing Russia's access to the basing facilities at Sevastopol permanently. The latter, namely weakening the Western alliance, are still incomplete. Putin's actions in the Crimea went a long way to embarrassing the United States and the EU and demonstrating that they do not run the world as they might have thought, but Ukraine was neither a member of the EU or NATO and therefore outside the defense envelope.

Advisers close to the Kremlin have admitted that one of the long-term goals of the Putin Administration is to bring about the break-up of the Atlantic Alliance and the "Finlandization" of Europe. If this sounds like a fantasy, that's because when written it is. But most aggression in foreign policy is the result of opportunism rather than deliberate planning, and success tends to breed momentum of its own. This was true of Hitler in the 1930s, and it is true of the Kremlin now.

At this point it is abundantly clear that not only are the US and Germany incapable or unwilling to consider a military response to limited Russian provocations, but that any serious economic response, including energy sanctions is unlikely as Berlin and London are putting domestic considerations above European ones. It is equally apparent that if not entirely successful, Russian messaging regarding the status of Russian-speakers within the Crimea and the nature of the new government in Kiev has been at least partially successful, and that messaging is likely to gain in effectiveness as a nationalist reaction to the loss of Crimea sweeps the rest of Ukraine, strengthening the Far Right. That should provide more than enough after the fact justifications for the Russia Today spin machine to swing into action. If Putin is going to move against Europe, now is the time.

That leaves the place. Putin needs three things in a target at this point. First it needs to be of less strategic value than the Crimea so that the arguments for fighting for it are even less. Second it needs to be politically vital, preferably as part of both NATO and the EU so that if the West chooses not to fight for it both organizations will be shattered. Thirdly, Russia's moral case must be so impeccable that in the game of political chess that will precede the Western defeat, Russia at all times maintains at least a moral deadlock if not a moral ascendancy. In effect, he needs an Eastern European Verdun.

Estonia meets all of these criteria. It is poor and geographically isolated. Furthermore, more than a third of its population is Russian, a legacy of Soviet rule, and that minority, unlike that in the Crimea, has legitimate cause for complaint. Soviet rule was imposed with almost unspeakable brutality in 1940, during the course of which nearly 20% of the adult population was deported to Siberia, and the settling of Russians was a deliberate effort by Moscow to destroy the Estonian nation demographically. As a consequence, when Estonia gained independence in 1991, it saw its Russian minority as a fifth column and has treated them accordingly. There is no official discrimination on the basis of ethnicity; but fluency in Estonian is required for state employment, the franchise, higher education, and many jobs in the private sector. A concerted effort has also been launched to challenge the residency of Russian-speakers and to deny them Estonian citizenship.

All of this makes Estonia's position vis-e-vis Russia far weaker than that of Ukraine except for one thing; Estonia is a member of both the EU and NATO. If Russia is able to stir up chaos in the form of riots and unrest within a member of both organizations it will discredit them totally. It makes no sense for Europe to risk destruction to defend Estonia, less than it did over the Ukraine, but the EU and NATO are based on the presumption that an attack on one is an attack on all. Putin's goal is to exploit this as a lie; Estonia is Verdun, a strategically worthless target that political factors forced the French army to defend to the death. In this case its Putin's goal to draw NATO and the EU into a battle not of armies, but of political capital, and to destroy that capital in the open fields of the Baltic shore.

Putin of course will move slowly. But the precedent has already been set. The ultimatum gave notice that the Russian Federation will be keeping a close eye on the condition of Russians within Estonia. One can guarantee that their "condition" will rapidly get worse. Expect Russian agents to spread money among unemployed Russians within Estonia in order to organize protests, and Russian special forces to engage in provocations if not outright acts of terror. The goal will be to goad the Estonia government into retaliation; if it does nothing it will effectively lose control of its border regions and internal security; if it cracks down, Moscow will be able to complain of the violence, and have an excuse for intervention. Most likely Moscow will be able to demand that the EU and the United States intervene to deal with the situation, and may even be able to cite EU law in defense of Russian claims. Then the failure of the EU to enforce the protections provided by its own laws, and of the United States to maintain order will act as an excuse for Russia to step into the breech. All will be perfectly legal, and officially at least, Russia will never step down from the moral high ground.

Is this sort of intervention inevitable? Of course not. If there has been one thing that has defined Putin's behavior this year, its the opportunism with which he has pursued objectives. Putin went into the Crimea with a wide range of acceptable outcomes; the situation as it developed, limited resistance in the Crimea, a disappointing lack of unrest in Eastern Ukraine, determined his progress. It makes absolute sense for Putin to force a battle a battle in the Baltic States. If it fails, he can always retreat with limited costs. If however he is successful, he all but break the back of the EU, and reverse two decades of NATO expansion overnight. People thought he was delusional when he stated those goals in yesterday's speech. He may not be as far off from achieving them as people think.

  1. Wow.. so all of those NATO countries that sent people to Afghanistan, many of whom lost their lives, are now told that the NATO charter is a lie?!? A terrorist attack with real but not completely direct ties to Afhganistan led to a decade long NATO response, but an invasion of Estonia wouldn't? The west would lose all credibility, and if I were Japan, South Korea or other non NATO countries whose security is guaranteed by the US, I would immediately try to find ways to make sure that there is a real defense again any geopolitical adversaries, knowing that there is no guarantee that the US would come to the rescue..

  2. Has Russia ever attacked a Nato member? Did Truman or Eisenhower confront Russia militarily after Soviet Union invadrd Hungary ot Czechoslovakia? Did Bush the lesser confront Russia militarily in Georgia?

    1. The Soviets didn't invade NATO members, but they sure engaged in subversion, backing Communist Parties in France and Italy, trying to organize general strikes in the late 40s, and bankrolling front organizations. The US responded with Voice of America, aid through Church groups etc. The thing was that their were ground rules and clear borders. NATO and EU expansion has broken that balance, but the record of the US in fighting domestic subversion, as opposed to armed aggression during the Cold War left quite a lot to be desired.

      Delete
  3. This would mean crossing a line that both sides avoided crossing throughout the Cold War because it would have been too dangerous. The US never directly attacked any Warsaw Pact state and the USSR never directly attacked any NATO member -- because once that line was crossed, the risk of escalation to all-out war would have been too great.

    Do you think the threatening Russian message to Estonia might have been behind the much tougher sanctions Obama unveiled today? If Putin is actually contemplating military action against a NATO member, the first priority must surely be to dissuade him.

    It's rather late now, but clearly the EU should long ago have done something about Estonia's denial of rights to the Russian minority. Even aside from weakening the pretext for Russian intervention, it would have been the right thing to do.

    1. The statement that Russian residents in Estonia are somehow discriminated against or that they are denied any rights is false. There is Russian language education (Russian schools and childcare) available for anyone who wishes it. To prove that, a few years ago, the World Human Rights Organization concluded in an investigation into precisely that issue (false claims were made, but it is pretty obvious who instigates such claims), that there are no human rights violations against ethnic Russians in Estonia.
      Where does this notion come from that somehow a sovereign country with its own language should somehow be forced to give government jobs to people who do not speak the state language? How can a government employee who does not speak Estonian service Estonian-speaking citizens in their own country? Residents that can not speak Estonian can apply to any public and private sector jobs. It is simply a fact of life that a job goes to the one who has the necessary skills to perform the job. Language is a skill, just like any other and it is false to call it discrimination if a job seeker fails to get a job which he is not qualified for. The World Human Rights Organization agrees.

    2. The main issue is denial of the franchise and citizenship, not government jobs.

  4. This is embarrassing. A soldier lives and dies for honor. We have sold Ukraine out. Estonia is next. Obama has set the precedent. He is breaking up the alliance.

  15. All you loan lenders are liars. How possible can a genuine loan company offer loan as cheap as 3% interest rate. Is this realistic? Anyone who comes here to believe these fake stories will be the biggest fool on earth. The lowest percentage a genuine loan company will offer is between 7 to 15 percent interest rate. I am a company owner and i have gotten a loan in the past from a genuine online loan company and i have no difficulty in getting a loan from them. This is the only place i will like to recommend for anyone looking for a genuine place to get a loan. Their email is (islamiccreditunion@gmail.com) I am aware they are giving out end of year loan package right now at a reduced interest rate. So hurry and contact them now to benefit from this package if you need a loan and please ignore these bunch of scams who claim to be loan lenders.

  35. End your financial worries now: I can smile that God-fearing man, who had secured $ 76,000 Usd and two of my colleagues have also received loans from this man, without any difficulty. I advise you not to choose the wrong person, you will definitely apply for a cash loan for your project and each other. I wrote this post, because Mr. Favour Henry, made me feel blessed their loans. It's through a friend that I met this honest and generous God fearing man who helped me get this fund to pay for the loan of your life, you need financial help, you're stuck, do not have access to bank credit, or not in favor of the bank to finance your construction, real estate development, the development of your business your own business, you must have seen and earn money, bad credit or need money to pay bills or debts. Therefore, we recommend that you go there, please contact and meet with you for the services you ask for it. Contact address:mrfavourinvestment@outlook.com

  40. Hi people ,iam Larissa April,Last year, i had health issue and due to this reason i was advised by my doctor to always move on a vehicle in order to avoid the total loose of strength since my place of work was far from where i and my husband reside , i told my husband about my plans to get a loan since there was no other means so that i can get a good car of my choice but my husband instructed and advise that i shouldn't apply for a loan online because almost all loan lenders online are fake and fraudulent in there actions so i had to suffer the stress of not moving on a car for some months and i later made up my mind to apply for an online loan because i wasn't having any other choice at that point but still i was advised by my siblings to apply for a bank loan instead of an online loan especially due to the current ongoing news about online scammers but all effort to get a loan from my bank didn't work through because i was having a bad credit report so with all this issues i had to get my mind crossed by applying for a loan online although i wont say that i was so perfect or very careful for not been scammed but i strongly believe that it was the lords mercy of God that directed me to the AMEIR MILLER CLASSIC FINANCIAL INSTITUTE . the great news is that i got my loan funds very fast and easily and this came to the surprise of my husband and my siblings who had earlier on discouraged me on this online loan issue and the most surprising of all was that i was granted this loan funds at a very cheap interest rate if %4 percent ... i am grateful for this car loan and i am also grateful to the AMEIR MILLER LOAN FOUNDATION FOR THERE transparency and total support , you can reach them on email : ameirmillerclassicloaninstitute@yahoo.com or theameirmillerloanorganisation@gmail.com , ameirmillerfinancialinstitute@gmail.com

  43. I am ROSE SMITH from CANADA a single parent, before my husband died
    he left us with so much DEBT that we could not cope with life, I was
    totally confused on what to do. When I was going through the internet
    I came across a POST by MARCUS CAFE about how Mrs JULIA NAVARO help
    him to get a loan so I applied for the loan from JULIA NAVARO through
    her mail (navaroloancompany@yahoo.com) of $200,000 with a duration of
    10 years.When I was applying for the loan I made a vow to GOD that if
    I get the loan I will let the world know what she did for me, to my
    greatest surprise my loan was granted with an interest of 2%. I was
    able to settle my debt and start up a new life and business with a
    settled family. So if you want any type of loan in any part of the
    world for as low as 2% please contact JULIA NAVARO on her mail
    navaroloancompany@yahoo.com or her phone number +16618356153.
    I just fulfilled my vow.
