Aleksandr Dugin, a Eurasianist who is close to the Kremlin, has told 
ethnic Russians in Ukraine that they must not cooperate with Kyiv in any 
way, that they must be ready to “act radically,” even to the point of 
sparking a civil war in that country, and that Moscow will support them 
because it supports “the independence of South-East Ukraine.”

Three days ago, Dugin made those comments via Skype to the wife of Pavel 
Gubarev who has been detained by the Ukrainian security services for his 
separatist activities. They were picked up off the Internet and have 
become something of a sensation on Ukrainian sites.

It is worth underscoring that Dugin came from the radical Russian 
opposition before 2000, changed sides and became a Kremlin loyalist when 
Vladimir Putin came to power, and that his latest comments came even as 
Putin and his officials were declaring that they have no further plans 
for advancing into Ukraine.

Neither Dugin nor the Kremlin has confirmed these words, but neither has 
disowned them either, an indication that one or the other or both are 
interested in continuing to destabilize Ukraine even as Russian Foreign 
Minister Sergey Lavrov tells US Secretary of State John Kerry that 
Moscow wants to stabilize the situation.
