Russia: Thoughts on Magomed Yevloev's Murder

Window on Eurasia discusses a recent piece on Magomed Yevloev's murder: “Moreover, the West […] is too focused on talking to Moscow ‘about the interpretation of the third paragraph of the fourth point of ht Medvedev-Sarkozy plan’ to be concerned with such ‘details’ as a political murder, ‘lest it put at risk important mutual strategic interests’.” North Ossetian blogger Valery Dzutsev thinks that the EU's demand for a “[proper investigation of] the killing” may be perceived by Russia “only as supporting evidence of the western involvement in the ongoing Ingush surge of violence”: “In one of his recent interviews Putin pensively said, that Russian government ‘knows what is going on in Ingushetia’. Knowing Putin, it is not difficult to figure out what he knows. He must be thinking, that the West have organised a plot in North Caucasus for Russia.”
