A railway explosion matching the Mukhrovani mutiny?

2009-06-02 18:58

2919.jpegThis morning, the railway track was blown up not far from Zugdidi, a town in the region near Abkhazia, an hour and a half before the first train appeared. The incident did not cause much damage. Electric trains soon resumed normal movements. Who was interested in the explosion: "the Abkhazian subversives", the Georgian opposition or Saakashvili's security officials?

By 12 p.m., the experts completed the reconstruction of the blown-up section of the Ingiri-Khobi railway in Georgia, the region of Zugdidi. The delayed passenger trains immediately resumed movements along the Tbilisi-Zugdidi track.


The explosion was heard early in the morning when neither people, nor trains were using the track. Several meters of the railway track were damaged. The explosion was strong enough to smash the panes in the houses along the track.

The timing mechanism of a TNT-hexogene explosive device went off. The railway personnel believe that if the explosion had been two hour later a passenger train that could have been moving along the track would have been crushed. It means the explosive material had been planted by those who were either unaware of the train schedule, or intended not to cause certain harm but to intimidate the people and create a tense atmosphere in the region.

The site of occurrence was immediately visited by representatives of the law-enforcement authorities of Georgia. The Railway Department of Georgia estimated the explosion to be a subversive action. The suspects were not mentioned. However, as long as the very notion of a subversive act means the actions of the foreign agents committing "a crime against the state security", and Zugdidi is on the border of the Galski region of Abkhazia, where there are also occasional explosions from time to time, it looks like the "investigation" carried out by the Georgian security officials will finally pick up the "Abkhazian track".

The Imedi Georgian TV-company has already made a supposition that the railway explosion is associated with the Abkhazian gunmen. According to it, a hotel building was damaged in the village of Ingiri, where the refugees from Abkhazia reside.

This version is totally illogical. The Abkhazians, who have recently managed, with Russia's assistance, to achieve diplomatic success in negotiations with the UN representatives are not at all interested in disrupting the situation. Let us remind you that on May, 27 the UN Secretary General's Special Representative Johan Verbeke submitted Pan Gi Moon's report on the situation in the South Caucasus. Abkhazia was mentioned there without any reference to its belonging to Georgia. This fact enabled Permanent Representative of Russia to UN Vitali Churkin to state that the document might serve as a basis for the future resolution for a new mandate of the UN mission in Georgia and Abkhazia. The resolution should be passed by June, 15, that is, by the date of the previous mandate expiry.

Well, who is interested then in destabilizing the current situation at the Abkhazian border? If the explosion was made by the "Abkhazian gunmen" the international community should not recognize the current government of the republic, as long as it allows subversive acts like this in the neighboring Georgian territory!

By the way, in the middle of May, the Abkhazian authorities already stated that the Georgian special services are trying to initiate subversive activities in order to reveal the incompetence of the local law-enforcement officials. This statement was preceded by a car explosion in the Galski region on May, 13. The car was carrying the Siemens company staff members who were performing reparatory works at the Ingurskaya hydro power plant.
