Teenagers in the war

2009-11-10 10:00

4504.jpegGeorgia is appealing to the international community with a request to bring back its "children stolen by Russia". Naturally, their pleas do not say anything about the Georgian teenagers (see photo) strolling along the streets of Tskhinval weapon in hand. The Ossetian authorities have set up pre-trial restrictions in respect of the teenagers in the form of detention in custody. Is this a cruel step? Well, seems to be no crueler than using these boys for arms traffic and making fools of them with the help of nationalistic propaganda.


Sometimes, it is better to stop the first-time criminal at the beginning of his "career" without waiting until he becomes a Tarial Oniani or Lasha Rustavskiy. Teenagers from Georgia detained in South Ossetia did not go there for a tour. Judging by their evidence, they took part in illegal arms turnover.

Giorgiy Romelashvili, Aleko Sabadze, Victor Buchukuri, Levan Khmiadashvili (see photo), boys of 14-17 years old holding grenades in their hands were detained in Tskhinval in one of the central streets named after Kutuzov. This was reported to the Expressnews agency by Head of the Committee for Post-conflict Settlement Boris Chochiev. "This fact confirms once again that the Georgian party is using children to achieve its dirty purposes", - he said.

As it turned out later, before penetrating the capital of the neighboring state, the boys had set up a cache of explosives, four grenades and food. One of the boys stole a rifle. All these facts were confessed by them during the interrogation broadcasted by the Georgian Imedi TV Channel.

A wave of protest against "the tyranny of the occupants" and "separatists" rose immediately in Georgia. According to the media, the "children" were "abducted" near the village of Tirdznisi, on the Ossetian side of the border that is not recognized. The deputies of the Georgian parliament believe that it is Russia that should be responsible for the incident, so long as it holds control over South Ossetia.

Chairman of the notorious parliamentary interim Committee for Restoration of the Territorial Integrity of the country Shota Malashkhia even drew parallels with the Baltic states before the beginning of the Second World War, where the Soviet Union set up "its own regimes" allegedly by way of provocations.

"Now, in XXI century, there are much more international leverages and we have got greater opportunities at the international level and inside the state. That is why, every possible effort will be made to guarantee the safety of those children", - Malashkhia assured.

Vice Speaker of Parliament Paata Davitaya referred to the detention of the armed teenagers as to a criminal offence. He is sure that massive pressure will be brought upon Russia and Tskhinval, and the Georgian youths will finally be released.

Tskhinval is not surprised at such massive propagandistic attack. It is already accustomed to the fact that Tbilisi ignores the legal rights of South Ossetia. As to the tales about "the innocent infants", they seem to have much in common with the same old songs about the brotherly Ossetian people, whom last August Mikhail Saakashvili's army tried to protect from the Russian aggression. Well, that is enough to make a cat laugh.

The international community had believed the Georgian party for a long time; only recently did it start to listen to the voice of South Ossetia as soon as Heidi Tagliavini recognized that the attack against Tskhinval was ungrounded.
