December 9, 2009 (WASHINGTON) – The Sudanese political forces reacted angrily to statements made by Russian special envoy Mikhail Margelov in which he appeared to be endorsing president Omer Hassan Al-Bashir for another term in the upcoming presidential elections.

The Russian news agency Ria Novosti Arabic service said that Margelov expressed skepticism about the chances for another figure to replace Bashir as president when Sudanese go to the polls in April 2010.

“I have not yet seen this alternative [to Bashir] even back in January when I had to convince [our] western partners that the arrest warrant by International Criminal Court (ICC) to arrest the Sudanese president is not viable and unrealistic” Margelov was quoted as saying in response to a question on availability of other candidates to run for president against Bashir.

The ICC issued an arrest warrant for Bashir last March charging him with orchestrating war crimes in Sudan’s war ravaged region of Darfur.

He disclosed that he plans to meet with the ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo early next year to discuss “the balance and effectiveness of the court in the Sudanese case”.

“There is an emerging feeling that the ICC decision on arresting the current Sudanese president was rushed and politicized”.

Russia voted in favor of the UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution 1593 in March 2005 referring the Darfur case to the ICC but opposed the indictment of the Sudanese head of state.

Margelov was on a week-long visit to Sudan which took him to Khartoum, Juba and El-Fasher in North Darfur.

Following his meeting with the Russian envoy today, the Sudanese president hailed bilateral ties and in statements to Ria Novosti Arabic service he expressed hope that Moscow could enter as a “strategic partner” in the oil and energy sector as well renovating the railroads considered the largest in Africa.

Margelov was accompanied in his visit by Russian businessmen, Novosti new agency reported.

SUDANESE OPPOSTION ANGERED

The remarks by the Russian official come at a time of heightened tension in Sudan following a crackdown by Sudanese authorities on demonstrations that took place in the capital on Monday by a coalition of Northern opposition parties and the Sudan People Liberation Movement (SPLM) which is a junior partner in the government of national unity (GoNU).

The SPLM and opposition parties had called the rally to demand democratic reforms ahead of next year’s elections in a rare public challenge to Bashir’s dominant northern National Congress Party (NCP).

More than a 100 people who took part in the protests were arrested by riot police including three senior members of the SPLM before being released without charges hours later.

Opposition parties said afterwards that the manner by which the demonstrations were crushed show that the current environment will not be suitable to conduct fair and free elections.

The US issued a statement yesterday condemning the “use of violence against and detentions of peaceful protestors” and stressed that lack of political freedoms will threaten “the chances of holding credible elections”.

Mariam Al-Mahdi, a senior figure in the Umma national party, deplored statements by Margelov saying that the choice of who to become president should be made by the Sudanese people.

“The Russian envoy has little understanding of the Sudanese political arena. He has limited his dialogue during his tenure to the two partners [in GoNU NCP & SPLM] so all he really saw was Bashir” the daughter of the former prime minister said.

“The Sudanese people are the ones who should decide on their next president not the Russian envoy” she added.

The leader of the Popular Congress Party (PCP) Hassan Al-Turabi expressed “surprise” over Margelov’s position but downplayed its significance.

“The Russians have only recently been acquainted with democracy and are still carrying the burden of totalitarian rule. What he [Margelov] said has no impact on the ground and with no weight” Al-Turabi said.

“He [Margelov] did not meet with other political parties besides the ones in power or create channels of communication with us so his understanding is lacking. He knows nothing about Sudan or its problems like in South or Darfur or even the country’s history and what happened in the last twenty years [since Bashir came to power],” the Islamist opposition leader added.

Al-Turabi said that the Russian presence in Sudan and the region has been “non-existent” since the fall of the Soviet Union in the early 1990’s.

“Communism is over and thus whatever linkage they [Russians] had disappeared. Their role is now limited to selling weapons” he said.

The chairman of Sudan Liberation Movement (SLM) Abdel-Wahid Al-Nur accused Russia of supporting Bashir to secure its commercial interests.

“It is only natural that they [Russians] see through the eye of their own interests. They think that once Bashir is gone, the Sudanese people will tap other venues for their arm supplies” Al-Nur said.

“Russia provides weapons to Sudan almost for free and the regime uses it to bomb and kill our people in Darfur but they don’t care since they have no culture of democracy or human rights” he told Sudan Tribune from Paris.

Al-Nur said that he has not been contacted by Margelov noting that he has held meetings with all international envoys for Sudan including the Chinese one.

“Irrespective of our [SLM] views on the chances for credible elections in Sudan, what Margelov said is unacceptable and insulting” he said.

Margelov has so far only met with the leader of the Darfur Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) in the Chadian capital last October which is his first meeting ever with a rebel group.

The meeting took place two weeks after an international workshop in Moscow where Sudan’s special envoys renewed their support to the Doha peace process between Khartoum and JEM.

Ibrahim, speaking to Sudan Tribune via satellite phone from Darfur, said that Margelov owes the Sudanese people “an apology” calling his remarks "unfortunate".

“I had a lengthy meeting with him [Margelov] and explained to him our point of view on the issues facing Sudan. We got the impression that he came out with a better understanding of the situation” the JEM chief said.

“If Russia wants to be of help in resolving the Darfur crisis then it has to work with all the relevant parties and not just the government. His statements show his contempt of the victims in Darfur and their feelings. Why is he even sitting with Bashir in the first place?” he added.

Ibrahim said his movement “is awaiting an apology or clarification” from Moscow on Margelov’s remarks.

“If Russian wants to continue providing the diplomatic and military cover to Khartoum so be it, but they will no longer be viewed as honest brokers by us” he said.

Appointed in December 2008 by the President Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian special envoy who speaks Arabic fluently, visited Darfur where more than 300,000 were estimated by the UN to have perished, to assess the humanitarian situation. His appointment signaled the desire of the Russian government to play a greater role in Sudan which has good economic and military ties with Moscow.

    Will Sudan be the only country in the world ruled by a war criminal, and the last one to elect an indicted janjaweed? I doubt the Sudanese people are stupid to do so.

      Birds of the same feather fly together. Russian government and Khartoum government under Al-Beshir have many things in common when it comes to violating human rights, oppression, killing innocent civilians, looting of others resources etc. Kiir must not accept any bilateral relationship with Russia or China.

      Beshir will only have another term as president of Sudan if they downplayed the voter registration and steal votes. Who in Sudan wants to be ruled by a criminal, a people butcher and satan? Sudan is very rich of talented people and well educated figures who can rule Sudan democratically and give everyone a fair go. The comments from the Russian envoy are nothing but a way to encourage Beshir to give whatever Sudan has to Russia. Russia by itself is one of the devils which need other people to follow their evil way of living.
      This is time for those who want to take out from Sudan anything they desire for their own good. Any country standing besides Sudanese president is not doing so because they really want to support Beshir but to please him so that he can allow them to do business with Sudan before his arrest.
      We know who are the best friends of Sudan, they are those countries that try to put Sudan into the right path by engaging in dialogue and enabling Sudanese leaders to reach peace. For those countries that encourage Beshir to go ahead with his evil things, they always talk of supporting Beshir. Apart from Sudanese people themselves, no one from outside can make Beshir remain a leader in Sudan.
      Fellow Sudanese, we need not worry and get ill of people’s remarks about the continuity of Beshir as Sudanese president after the coming election. Beshir will soon start to dig his own grave and bury himself alone for what he had done to the Sudanese people. We do not have to worry about Beshir’s coming but we have to think about who do we need to be our next president.

      Dear Osheay!

      It seem you are just wasting your time in South Sudan to support your enemy who has killed your ancesters fathers, if not, some of your colleagues or relatives may has been killed by Arabs during civil war and even after war in Sudan.

      I don’t second you to said HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH in South Sudan. Sudan is still one country but your support over Bashir will not earn credits or to give houses and wife like Joseph Lagu time as arabs did to Us usually.

      Please you are still young in politics and don’t your commentary on website fool you to embark a person who don’t know you rather than a Southerner whom you usually share pserinsism in common.

      I advice you Friends! when all people cry for what Bashir or Arabs leaders in Khartoum did to Southerners during these thousands of decades, don’t begin laughing otherwise your laughing may one day turns to cursing.

      I know Bashir’s Bibliography personally.

      To: Oshay,

      You had been eating with Jallaba for 21years, that is why it is hard for you to leave the Ideological system of your Bashir/Jallaba. If you are a Southerner who is supporting Arabs, just take your Anus and DO NOT complicate the true National of Southern Sudan from Ten States who are ready for democratic change.

      I knows to bring a person from the village is easy BUT, to remove the ideology of the village is very difficult.We are not not even interested to be with people like you who don’t want democratics change.

      You only knows how to betray your fellow southerners to Jallaba.

      shut up your stupid Anus!!!!!

        Shit!There is no way for the Russian to cover up their heinous crimes commited in Darfur, South Sudan,Nuba Mountain except to continue supporting the dictatorship regime of El Bashir.But remember that,the Sudanese people and the marginalized groups of Sudan are the true masters of themselves and no power on earth can impose on the fugitive,isolated dictator,be it Russian or any other country.It is worth to remind you Mr.envoy that,it’s due to the total lack of human values,moralities and voracious selfish will and drive to accumilate third world’s resources where your communisim system failed.It will be good if your Government provide safe heaven for El Bashir than thinking to impose him on the people.Soon you will regret your backing THE DICTATOR Al-Bashir.

    Secretary general Ban Kai Moon declined to comment on the arrests, but he said the UN had to "work more closely with both NCP and SPLM to try to root out the infrastructure of Khartoum terrorism that continues supports Militian in Darfur and supply the weapon Janjaweed".

    It is well know that Russian government is the one supporting Bashir’s regime by giving him military jet fighters plus ammunitions to fight Southern Sudanese people. Those support are commercial support otherwise once Suothern Sudan determine it is referendum, it will end because Bashir has no resources.

    Bashir’s re-election may not be decided by stupid countries like Russian who even don’t know how democracy.

    Damn Russians,

    This particular nation, pulls with negativity in the international relations has ever since been at the forefront in giving support evil regimes in particular in Third Countries.Russia’s enthusiastic effort to both politically and military can be increasingly viewed as a result of converging commercial interests between Bashir’s group and corrupt leaders in Russia.In 1990S,after the cold war was over, Russia began forging her way inside Sudan as a way forward to gain unfair access to the resources which could reinforce and serve its hailing national economy. sO,the two parties entered into agreement,illegal contract whose terms had led to bloody deaths of children, old in West, south and Darfur.
    The main content of this reads like this ’we supply supply you weapons to get your job done,and you give us our share,that is looting our oils and other natural resources.

    The theoretical framework underling all these evil intentions especially pursue by Russia,the country which at some points pretended to be the preacher of constructive engagement, can be understood properly in the context of,and through the prime of realism. ’A world of self help" let’s view it this way, as the talks regarding Genocidal in Darfur was taking its shape,a Russian Envoy to Sudan argued for the need for soft approach to the conflict in Darfur, which drew world attention to Russia as peace loving Nation.

    Until then,many were lured to be believed and have confidence in their approach to world conflicts.Supporting Bashir politically as expressed by Russian’s News agency rises skepticism about its role as a Superpower.It should be understood that Russia had been and still playing a zero-sum game when analyzed in the context of it behavior and action in the Sudan.

    Wether you are Sudanese or an outsider,let there be no doubt that the Support given to Bahir’s clique by Russia is nothing more than the project planed to prolonged War in Sudan to allow long term exploitation of resources.

    Many might have seen this behavior in most parts of the world when Russian was busy supplying arms and deadly weapon those who seem to have had control country’s natural resources. For instance, it took many years to get out Afghanistan simple because they were comfortable using their soldiers to keep killing innocent population,looting resources. Does this same strategy apply in our scenario? I will leave that to you to figure it out.

    This is the case we have now in our country, we know that this uncompromising big evil empire on earth had been supplying Khartoum with deadly weapons to finish off our true African people in Darfur.Some years back, Russians supplied Bashir Government with a significant number of modern jet fighters, in the belief to crash rebel forces. But all these efforts by Russian did not resonate well as they had been planned.

    Yes,we know Bashir have used the weapons in killing as many civilians, displacing thousands of thousands in theirs villages to neighboring Chadian borders. With this massive killing of innocent people in Darfur,especially by using bloody weapons made Russian, supplied by its corrupt leaders,indicate to me that this very Nation which claims playing a constructive international role does purely disguise its agenda of serving the interest of bourgeois back home.

    Its role in international affairs does not incorporate its national interests but reflects the interests of corrupt and immoral political and business leaders which converge with Al haram Bashir’s clique interest.

    Dear mayors

    Infact I would like to bestowing you my prerogative advice to those countries which stand by and supporting the Sudan blood scavenger and iniquity [Al-basher]; please keep watch over yourselves otherwise you will see how worse and shoddier it is.

    Simultaneously, you are all right since you were naivetizations folks which mutinous the mayors all over the world.

    Henceforth, let’s calm down because they were doing what they don’t know; as you now that if the blind man guiding another roller blind, both of them might fall in to the hole.
    Let them whimper there till they got tired.

    plz take a movement----->>

    What is Al-basher?

    Al-basher [Murder];is the unlawful killing of another human being with intent (or malice aforethought), and generally this state of mind distinguishes murder from other forms of unlawful homicide (such as manslaughter).

    As the loss of a human being inflicts enormous grief upon the individuals close to the victim, as well as the fact that the commission of a murder permanently deprives the victim of their existence, most societies both present and in antiquity have considered it a most serious crime worthy of the harshest of punishment.

    Typically a convicted murder suspect is given a life sentence or even the death penalty for such an act.
    A person who commits murder is called a murderer [al-basher]; the term murderess, meaning a man who murders, has largely fallen into disuse.

    The Russian stances are very clear from the beginning, they are very concerned for their business rather then solving the Sudanese complicated issues, they went to grant the weapons selling and breaching Un security council arm embargo on Sudan ,they are partner of Genocide took place in Darfur by the selling, killing machines, Antanoves ,Megs,and other fatal weapons to the genocidal regime in Khartoum , the ICC should investigate the Russian role in the atrocities committed in Darfur. in effect the new mandate for Elbashir means the collapse of the Sudan from surface of the world , all the viable forces in Sudan and the freedom seekers are requested to condemn loudly this an appropriate statements made by the weapons trafficker so called special envoy to Sudan.

    Mr.Mikhail Margelov is NOT a special Envoy . He is a stupid Russian who is looking for the market for their weapons with the aim of draining oil from Sudan.

    Mr. Mikhail how can you endorse for an impotent Omer Hassan Al-Bashir another term? simply because you are also dictor? How can aperson without a child be aleader? Management start from home. People without children like Bashir will NOT lead the country in a democratic system.

    All Heros from southern Sudan, open your eyes to see professional beggar like Mikhail Margelov who support Dictator Bashir at the expenses of our blood, oil and resources.

    I am recommending for closing of Russian Consulate from Southern Sudan. Although our government is still developing from scratches, I recommend them to close the Consulate of Russian and Chinese from southern Sudan. H.E Kiir, H.E Riek, H.E Wani Igga, Pagan .open your Eyes to these two contries. Russia And China are the first two countries who are ready to supply Dictator Bashir with Weapons.

    This is because they want to increase the market for their Weapons and Draining our Resources at the expenses of our Blood. Remember the Song Rosuah Batal by Lasu emma.

    you just have to understand something between Russian and the Arabs ,Russia is oppressing Georgia which they have been looting for so many years and do not want Georgians to get independent that is why the are supporting Khartoum
    The statment does not make any sense at all since Russian are only interested in maintaining their market in the north .
    Southern Sudan will soon be an independent country no worry wether the support Bashir or not .
    Russian are only sharing the same interest with Bashir
    if bashir is to remain the president in Sudan after April 2010 The war in darfur and conflict in the south will definitely continue and the market prevails for the Russian fire arsenals.
