2005年5月21日付The Japan Times Weekly の news of the world の記事。
■スウェーデンのSydsveska Dagblandet紙、ロシアの外交政策についての論評。
"The increasingly aggressive Russian foreign policy toward what the Kremlin commonly calls 'the nearabroad' has apparently caused a lot of uneasiness inWashington. As an indication of this U.S. President George W. Bush had organized his trip to also include visits in Latvia and Georgia. "When Bush met with the
Baltic chiefs of staff inRiga the other day he described the Soviet occupation as 'one of the greatest wrongs of history.' "Such talk is unfortunately never heard in Moscow."
■ノルウェーのStavanger Aftenblandet紙はロシアとバルト三国の論評。
"Russia's President Vladimir Putin is unwilling to make the apologetic gesture that the Baltic states demand. Without doubt, the Soviet occupation of Estonia,Latvia,Lithuania after the defeat of Germany in 1945 caused the Baltic states great and lengthy suffering through mass deportation,oppression and terror.
Putin believes he has done enough by admitting that Stalin was a tyrant. But why is it so costly to apologize to the Baltics ? "As a former KGB man, he regrets the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the loss of the Baltic states and other regions. "Clearly,Kremlin powers are reluctant to let go of Russia's imperialist ambitions. The most striking example is Chechnya, but Moscow also seeks influence in other parts of Russia's periphery,making relations with several former Soviet republics difficult.
"Setting up with the past by Moscow is unlikely tohappen before Russia has a democratic revolution a la Ukraine and Georgia. when that will happen is uncertain."
