RUSSIA AND THE "EASTERN ISSUE"

. This was what heir apparent Francis Ferdinand was campaigning for.

The further events of the 1908-1909 Bosnian crisis looked very much like what NATO is doing. Austria-Hungary was convinced that a bold annexation of Bosnia and Herzegovina would be meekly accepted by Russia crippled in the Russo- Japanese war. Foreign Minister Aehrenthal offered an opinion: «I know Russia as my own pocket. She will definitely not start a war.» This plan succeeded in the same way as the West’s present expectations: the vast-spreading political and national troubles and economic chaos do not allow Russia to act. Izvolski’s attempt to appease Austria and offer concessions on other Balkan issues in return of abandoning the annexation plans was neither productive nor honorable. Kozyrev’s diplomacy was even less so.

It is for a century and a half that the West has feared Russia and large-scale Slavic alliances. Nothing has changed by the end of the twentieth century. Il’in wrote that no efforts to serve the general European causes could alter this attitude-neither liberation of Europe from Napoleon, nor rescuing Prussia in 1805-1815, nor Alexander III’s peaceful policies. Even after Russia’s feat of delivering Europe from the threat of complete annihilation by Hitler Russia and the Slavs remained for the West a mysterious void to be educated, turned Catholic, «colonized» and civilized. She can be used for trade and other aims and intrigues. At all time she should be weakened at all costs.

In his A Great Chessboard Brzezinski describes Russia as a «black hole.» Every page is filled with almost indecent hints at the Russians’ and the Orthodox Slavs’ cultural inferiority as compared with other ethnic groups in the world and in the historical Russian state. Amazing continuity indeed! This smacks not so much of Hegel’s theory of historical and non-historical peoples as of Engels’ malicious impatience with which he looked forward at disappearance on the anti-historical Slavs and the immanently reactionary Russian nation.

This continuity goes much further back than one hundred and fifty years: its history is almost millennium-old. In his letter to St. Bernard of Clairvaux the Bishop of Krakow Matthew wrote that the Orthodox Slavs were anti-Christian and barbarian and that a crusade against the Russian barbarians who failed to harmonize either with Catholicism or Greek Orthodoxy was desirable. The bishop regarded the Russians as being worse than the Byzantine schismatics.

All great Russian thinkers of the past addressed the global «Russia and Europe» dilemma. The problem provides the background to Russia’s advance towards a catastrophe, the Western global Kulturtrager aspirations (that are not limited to the materialist criteria), an open blackmail, and the aggression against Yugoslavia.

Russia is not alone who is suffering from this. Europe, that played a great role in history and culture in the past, is losing it. Its heroic inspiration, the ideals and feats, even doubts of Descartes, the very «madness of destructive freedom» were all introduced by the Christian spirit. The capitulation to the Atlantic civilization that is going on is the final decline of Europe, «Untergang des Abendlandes,» as Spengler put it.

This new role is aptly symbolized by the NATO Secretary General Solana’s ambiguous and always improper smile. It brings to mind Kipling’s Jungle Book and Tabaqui the Jackal’s smile with which he announced the rude and oppressive will of ’his master Shere Khan who violated the Law. This is Pax Americana that has replaced not only the Holy Roman Empire and Moscow the Third Rome, but all other materialist and universalistic Utopias of Godless paradise on Earth: «the worldwide fraternity of labor,» «the common European home,» and the «united world.»

As the year 2001 is drawing closer Russia and Europe may both profit from cooperation. This powerful and very much needed impulse will be produced nt by Europe’s testing Russia’s conformity to West European liberalism. This impulse needs a fruitful and constructive interaction and combined and conscious spiritual efforts of Europe’s ethnic, confessional, and cultural elements – Roman, Germanic and Slavic – of Catholic and Orthodox Europe. Time has come to grasp the significance of the Russian Orthodox outpost for the entire Christian world in the face of not only geopolitical and demographic, but also spiritual, challenges of the coming century.
