Shadow of “brown plague” over Georgia

2009-12-21 21:55

4918.jpegThe ceremony of Glory Memorial explosion in Kutaisi coinciding with Mikheil Saakashvili's birthday failed. The explosion broke out ahead of time, killing a woman and a child with the pieces of the monument. Looks like a symbol. The president called to initiate investigation and punish the culprits. But many people in the world look at the explosion as "blasphemy" and "an act of state vandalism". An anti-fascism wave is rising in Georgia.


So-called dismantling of the memorial to the perished during the years of the Great Patriotic War in Kutaisi was condemned by the opposition, as well as Russian authorities and the majority of sober-minded people. Cynical attitude to panhuman values the perished in the struggle with fascism embody and the ideology of the minority's race superiority over majority could not be neglected.

However Georgian authorities have long lost moral orientation thinking that good is what is hurtful or harmful to Russia and everything that comes from the North as evil.

This is what Georgian diplomats responded to the Russian Foreign Ministry's first statement: "The Russian Foreign Ministry has an immoral habit of permanently interfering in other countries' internal affairs" adding that the memorial "was badly damaged in 90s - in the period, when developments inspired by Russia were happening in Georgia. As a result, the memorial requires rehabilitation works."

Calling the explosion of the statuary arch symbolizing Promised Heaven and Motherland a "rehabilitation" of the monument is the highest degree of cynicism. Besides the Foreign Ministry omits the fact that the memorial will be brought down since it "hampers" ambitious plans to construct a new building for the parliament that in future will sit in the capital and in the region.

Excuses of a Kutaisi mayoral office spokesman that mentioned dismantling and relocation of the memorial in an interview with GeorgiaTimes were contradicted by Georgy Akvlediani, a minority deputy. He explained that only one part of the composition will be left untouched: this is a young warrior riding a horse and a holding a sabre that is now installed in front of the Sports Palace in Kutaisi.

Other parts of the memorial were supposed to get blown up today on December 21, on the day of Mikheil Saakashvili's (the b-day person) arrival in Kutaisi.

Opposition parties and the opposition were going to protect the monument surrounding it by a live chain which would have frustrated the presidential feast. That's why somebody decided to accelerate the course of events.

It turned out a disservice. The explosion took the lives of Manana Jinzharadze and her eight-year-old daughter Nino who were nearby. They were hit by pieces of concrete. So the construction of a new parliamentary building has the blood of innocent victims of Mikheil Saakashvili's irrepressible ambitions.

Georgian president had to discontinue his trip to Copenhagen holding an extraordinary session of the Security Council and urging "harsh punishment for culprits". He dismissed Imereti governor Mikhail Chogovadze. Later Avtandil Darsavelidze, Sakpetkmretsvi (Gruzvzryvprom) technical director in charge of the monument pull-down was detained. He is charged with violation of security regulations at the time of work execution according to art. 240 of the Georgian criminal code.

The death of a woman and a child made the legalized vandalism even more sinister. How many more crimes should be committed for the West to allow Georgian people to overthrow the reincarnated ruler that came to power with democratic slogans and has grown into an uncontrollable dictator with Nazi manners?
