David Frum: Manafort Looks Like The Key To Unlocking Trump’s Russia Mystery

on Sat May 06, 2017 11:31 am
David Frum: Manafort Looks Like The Key To Unlocking Trump’s Russia Mystery

David Frum is a senior editor at the Atlantic magazine. He is a former speechwriter to former US President George Bush.

Frum is a conservative Republican, who before the last US presidential elections endorsed Hillary Clinton and is a strong critic of Donald Trump. Frum is well acquainted with life behind the scenes of the White House and in American politics.

Hromadske’s Nataliya Gumenyuk had a chance to talk to him and asked about the significance of Paul Manafort’s Ukraine connections for the US inner circle as well how to interpret conflicting orders in  Trump's foreign policy and what Europe and Eastern Europe in particular can expect from the US administration.



From Ukraine it looks like something big, but looking at how long he was Trump’s campaign manager for, it was pretty short term. So to what extent could he really influence Trump? Does he have any real impact or connections?

The Trump campaign is full of secrets. There are all kinds of strange people, who became close to the campaign, who had very strange ties to Putin’s Russia. One by one, those people are being pushed out of government. The most important was Michael Flynn, who was briefly National Security adviser. But there is this enduring mystery with the Donald Trump connection to Russia. Obviously, it’s very infatuated with Putin and the Russian political system. We don’t know why that is. Maybe, he sincerely admires Putin, maybe it’s something financial, maybe it’s something else. Paul Manafort looks like a key to unlock that mystery, and Manafort may soon be in trouble with the law. If he didn’t pay taxes on Ukrainian money – we don’t know that he didn’t – he could be in trouble in the law, and then he will have things to say.

What do  we really know about the Trump-Russia connections at the moment? There has been a lot of talk about this, and in the end, you  don’t really know what is real and what is not. Maybe Trump likes the way Putin runs Russia. But the question is always, if there was something serious, why can’t anyone, including US journalists and intelligence, find anything more substantial?

There is a famous detective story in English called ‘The Purloined Letter’, in which police search a man’s office looking for a letter and they never find it, and the reason is because he left it on the middle of his desk. That’s the one place they never thought to look. Everything we need to know about Trump and Russia, - well, not everything you need t0 know - so much of what is important is there in  plain sight. We’ve known it all along. What we have seen is Donald Trump’s enthusiastic admiration for Putin. That  is no secret. That he recruited for key positions in his campaign, people who admire Putin and were close to the Russians, and had  proper financial connections to Russia. Michael Flynn, who used to be National Security adviser took money, not only from RT media, but also from a number of other Russian companies. It’s not an enormous sum of money by Manafort standards, but enough for a man, who is in financial trouble - as he was - a few tens of thousands maybe, a hundred thousand. It mattered at that time for him, and other people too. We know all that. We know that Donald Trump campaigned about Wikileaks, and he constantly used Wikileaks as a weapon against Hillary Clinton, and he would praise them, at the time when everybody understood that Wikileaks had an improper connection to Russian intelligence work. Everybody knew that. That’s the whole story. Maybe there are some dramatic secrets, but i don’t know what is the thing people are looking for. It’s almost impossible to prove, with any human being, to a person that someone did an action for a specified reason. We never know exactly why people do things, but we see what they did.

What do you understand of the meeting of the State Secretary Tillerson with Russia? Because he says things that you would more or less expect from a Republican government, not including the recent meeting with Lavrov. He sounds critical enough, despite all the concerns. So somehow, when you talk to people from the Republican party, policy makers, analysts, they say, “you see, it’s not so bad we were expecting the worse”.

What we can see – and once again, this is not a claim here – you have giant demonstrations in Moscow, hundreds  of people arrested, suppression of the press. In the USA there is nothing to say about it, it’s not a comfort word, and not any indication the Russian government would be well advised not to use violence and, in particular, we have our eye on certain people, who represent opposition political force in Russia and it’s really important that people continue being in good health. That’s the kind of thing that the Germans, the British say, but the US say it louder than everybody else. Under a normal press, under George Bush and Barack Obama, the US would have said, “we care about Mr. Navalny’s health”. That’s important to us, and they didn’t do that.There may not be some big secret here, there may not be some dossier, because after all, after the recent Turkish referendum, in which the last Turkish democracy was snuffed out, Trump made a call of congratulations to Erdogan. Maybe he just instinctively sympathises with authoritarian rulers, and maybe he doesn’t need more of an explanation than that.

The theme of "fascist Ukraine" remains unchanged for the Russian propaganda, it has no other explanation for the loss of another ally

on Sat May 06, 2017 7:41 pm
The theme of "fascist Ukraine" remains unchanged for the Russian propaganda, it has no other explanation for the loss of another ally

Russians are doomed to phantom obsession with the Nazis, while their country is not able to compete with the modern world. This writes the publisher of magazines Business Ukraine and Lviv Today Peter Dickinson in the article "Why the Kremlin is so obsessed with the phantom fascists?" for The Atlantic Council - the US non-governmental organization providing the ideology of NATO. Edition of "Gordon" with the permission of The Atlantic Council publishes a translation of an article without cuts.

In April, it was reported that the Kremlin is planning to hold a massive smear campaign against Russian opposition figurehead Alekseya Navalnogo. After a few days on YouTube anonymously out expensive video attack in the video compared Navalny and Adolf Hitler. Russian authorities denied any connection with the video, but few believed them. In the end, branding opponents as the Nazis is a proprietary Kremlin tactics and has been going on for several decades.

Kremlin officials enthusiastically play the Nazi card against any opposition since the height of the Cold War. When the Hungarians revolted against Soviet occupation in 1956, Moscow condemned the uprising as a "fascist rebellion" before sending to their tanks. The same thing happened during the Prague Spring of 1968. Communist Party officials even called the Berlin Wall "Anti-fascist protective wall".

This tendency has survived after the Soviet collapse and continues today. When Estonia in 2007, tried to carry in the center of Tallinn,  a Soviet  monument dedicated to World War II, the Kremlin's media have fallen into a frenzy over the "Fascist Estonia", sparking riots among the large ethnic Russian population in Estonia. Within days, Russia has launched the world's first full-fledged cyber war against the tiny Baltic state. This hybrid attack, contained misinformation and cyber elements along with the Nazi motives to stir up ethnic Russian minority, were ominous harbinger of things to come.



The most notorious Kremlin accusations of fascism traditionally intended Ukraine. It did not begin in 2013 with the negative coverage in Russia euromaidan protests; ever since the Second World War, Moscow is trying to portray the movement for the independence of Ukraine as practically indistinguishable from Nazism. These efforts are generally stressed the cooperation of various Ukrainian independence leaders with the Nazis during the war and at the same time whitewashed Soviet alliance with Hitler in the years 1939-1941.

In the post-Soviet period, the Kremlin's media began to actively call Ukrainians by the Nazis in 2004. While Viktor Yushchenko ran for president as a reformer who promised Ukraine's movement towards the EU. Since the theme of "fascist Ukraine" remains constant feature of Russian propaganda, which became the cornerstone of the Kremlin's efforts to discredit euromaidan and justify Russia's invasion of Crimea and eastern Ukraine. Nor miserable failure of the extreme right-wing political parties in Ukraine at the next election after euromaidan or appointment of a Jewish prime minister has not been sufficient to expose these insults. Just Russia has no other explanation for the loss of another friend and ally.

Why the Kremlin so obsessed with the phantom fascists? This may be more of a necessity than a choice. In the battle of "soft power" - the battle of ideas that determine the international dominance of today, Russia is practically unarmed. She has no intelligible ideology to oppose its relative rights and freedoms of democracies. Simply do not have the answer to higher standards and life expectancy, greater protection offered by the Western model. Playing the Nazi card and evoking the ghosts of the Second World War, the Kremlin is trying to distract the audience from the inside of the egregious flaws, while claiming the moral high position.

Russians of all ages is difficult to resist this approach. The fight against Hitler, and today continues to be an exceptional emotional response to the Russians, who consider themselves the state - the successor of the Soviet Union and its 27 million dead in World War II. Putin has skillfully used the Russian sensitivity. He made the annual celebration of the Victory Day, the central element of the Kremlin's calendar, making the triumph of the Red Army over Nazi Germany in the fundamental myth of the modern Russian state. Once a grim celebration devoted to mourning for fallen comrades and lost loved ones - Victory Day became a whole season jingoistic excesses new annual public rites on the background of the cult of victory, superior to all the species in the Soviet times.

Emphasis on the defeat of Nazi Germany's secret of modern Russia lacks and at the same time overshadows the horrors of the Stalinist regime and Soviet crimes against humanity are often written off as a necessary prelude to the military achievements. To question any aspect of this narrative akin to heresy. This sacred status makes WWII unique powerful propaganda weapon against anti-Kremlin dissidents. In this context, the glorification of the Red Army and the demonization of opponents as the Nazis - the two sides of the same coin. Sympathize with "fascists" - an insult to the memory of those who gave their lives to defeat Hitler. This is not just a crime, it is - sin. This is not a particularly rational argument, but he is emotionally explosive, when backed by all the power of the Kremlin's media machines.

There are some signs that this form of emotional blackmail may finally lose its power. For example, videoataka Navalny has disappeared from YouTube after several days of mass ridicule. She was not able to attack the young Russians, who are trying to influence. Nevertheless, it is still too early to say that Russia has reached "peak of fascism." The Kremlin has no alternative message across, capable to charge domestic audience as it makes World War II. In the absence of recent national achievements of Hitler's defeat, it seems, will continue to be the guiding star of the Putin government in the foreseeable future. As a result, the Russian public seems doomed to phantom obsession with the Nazis, while the country will not be able to compete with the modern world.
