Kazakhstan

a particular problem in countries where they live close to the Russian border, such as in Ukraine and Kazakhstan, with some of these Russians calling for these areas to be absorbed into Russia. By and large, however, Russians in the near-abroad do not favor active intervention of Russia into the domestic affairs of neighboring countries, even in defense of the interests of ethnic Russians. Lowell W. Barrington, Erik S. Herron, and Brian D. Silver, "The Motherland Is Calling: Views of Homeland among Russians in the Near Abroad," ''World Politics'' 55, No. 2 (2003) : 290–313. Moreover, the three Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania) have clearly signaled their desire to be outside any claimed Russian sphere of influence, as is reflected by their joining both the NATO alliance and the European Union in 2004. *Caspian Sea boundaries (Caspian Sea#International disputes) are not yet determined among all littoral states.

Prague

After visiting Vilno, Grodno and Belostok, in November 1862 Leskov arrived in Prague where he met a group of Czech writers, notably Martin Brodsky, whose arabesque ''You Don't Cause Pain'' he promptly translated. In December Leskov was in Paris, where he translated Božena Němcová's ''Twelve Months (A Slavic Fairytale)'' (both published by ''Severnaya ptchela'' in 1863) and celebrated the New year with his Czech friends. On his return to Russia in 1863 Leskov published several essays and letters, documenting his trip. The first historical mention dates back to 1290, when the river is mentioned as ''Olza''. Mieszko, Duke of Cieszyn then wrote: ''...dictorum mansorum super fluvium Olzam libere possideat...'' The river was then mentioned in a written document in 1611 as ''Oldza''. Cicha et al. 2000, 21. At the end of the 19th century, together with the rise of mass nationalism both Polish and Czech activists claimed the name ''Olza'' is too little Polish and Czech, respectively. Gawrecki 1993, 13. Some Polish activists proposed the name ''Olsza'', Czech activists ''Olše''. Czech linguist and writer Vincenc Prasek found out in 1900 that the name ''Olza'' is not Polish, nor Czech but has Old Slavic (Proto-Slavic language) origin. This revelation was confirmed by various etymological studies in the 20th century. The form ''Olza'' used on this territory is derived from the ancient ''Oldza''. German ''Olsa'' is derived from ''Olza''. Local people always used the ''Olza'' form, regardless of their national or ethnic origin. Even the Germanized form ''Olsa'' reads as ''Olza''. However, central administration in Prague saw ''Olza'' as a Polish name and when most of the river became a part of Czechoslovakia in 1920 it tried to change its name to the Czech form of ''Olše''. However, till the 1960s still some dualism in the naming existed which was eventually suppressed by the Central State Administration of Geodesy and Cartography. Gawrecki 1993, 15. Since then, the only official form in the Czech Republic is ''Olše'', however locals from both sides of the border, from both nationalities, still call it ''Olza''. Two local self-government councils, Polish and Czech, were created. Initially, both national councils claimed the whole of Cieszyn Silesia for themselves, the Polish ''Rada Narodowa Księstwa Cieszyńskiego'' in its declaration "Ludu śląski!" of 30 October 1918 and the Czech ''Národní výbor pro Slezsko'' in its declaration of 1 November 1918. Gawrecká 2004, 21. On 31 October 1918, in the wake of World War I and the dissolution of Austria-Hungary, most of the area was taken over by local Polish authorities. The short-lived interim agreement of 2 November 1918 reflected the inability of the two national councils to come to final delimitation (boundary delimitation), and on 5 November 1918 the area was divided between Poland and Czechoslovakia by another interim agreement. Zahradnik 1992, 52. In 1919 the councils were absorbed by the newly created and independent central governments in Prague and Warsaw. At the end of World War I local Poles and Czechs each established their own self-governing organs. Both groups claimed that the whole of Cieszyn Silesia rightfully belonged to Czechoslovakia or to Poland respectively. To ease the friction which developed, the local self-governments concluded an interim agreement on 5 November 1918 concerning the division of the area based on ethnic composition. However, by 1919 metropolitan governments in Prague and Warsaw superseded the local administrations, with the Czechs arguing that the division was unfair. In particular, the crucial railway going to east Slovakia (Kassa-Oderberg railway (Košice-Bohumín Railway)) went through the region and access to the railway
