Putin makes veiled threats to the US and Estonia.

Speaking only days before Condoleezza
Rice, US
secretary of state, is due to visit, Vladimir Putin said only “equitable
partnership’’ and “common responsibility’’ would prevent ”the next armed
conflict and attempts to shatter world peace”.

Mr Putin used the annual celebrations of the defeat of the Nazis in Red
Square to make criticisms of the US
and Estonia.

The Russian president renewed attacks on what he calls US
unilateralism, saying there were “new threats” based on “the same disregard for
human life and the same pretensions to international exclusivity and diktat as
in the Third Reich”.

In a thinly masked attack on Estonia
over its relocation of a Red Army monument, Mr
Putin said: “Those who are trying to belittle this invaluable experience, those
who desecrate monuments to the heroes of the war, are insulting their own
people and sowing discord and new distrust between states and people.”

move sparked riots in Tallinn, the
capital, that left one dead and 153 injured.

For Russia,
which lost 27m people during the war, the defeat of Hitler’s Germany
is one of its proudest moments. Russians make up about one third of Estonia’s
1.3m people but to many Estonians the statue is a symbol of a half century of
Soviet rule.

While some 7,000 soldiers goose-stepped through Moscow’s
Red Square carrying
hammer-and-sickle banners, hundreds of ethnic Russians queued quietly in Tallinn,
to place red carnations at the new location of the bronze war memorial at a
military cemetery just outside the city centre.



Blair, Brown and the unelected European Commission is seen
by the rest of the world as being the new National Socialists, the rest of the
world can see them taking old Nazi laws and making them their own.

They can see the slide that Europe is
making towards Authoritarianism, and Russia
is quite rightly wary, quite rightly concerned by the actions of the European


We are living in very uncertain times.
