The course of the former pro-Western governments of Ukraine and Kirghizia has changed now, the neighbours have turned their faces to Moscow again. The sensational agreement of Russia and Ukraine on the Black Sea Navy is still being discussed by politicians and experts. But another surprise can still be expected from Ukraine. Quite unpleasant for Georgia. Yesterday in Strasburg the Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich did not exclude the possibility of recognizing the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. The Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili is maintaining a Spartan composure and from the USA is speaking on the achievements of Georgia and on Moscow's attempts to stop the
development of the country. The opposition and the Georgian expert community are forecasting another hard period for the country.
Western and experts state: Russia is returning its lost positions. "The pro-Russian governor has received a whole lot of assurance of President Medvedev and Premier Putin's good attitude to him: the Kremlin is using the USA indifference and the EU inability to reinstate its influence in Kiev to the maximum", writes today's British "Times". When it all comes down, the current partnership between Ukraine and Russia can move even further.
Though yesterday in Strasburg Yanukovich did not give a definite answer on the recognition of the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, he gave a significant hint: nothing is impossible. This can be the only interpretation of his statement cited by information agencies. "The time has come to consider the criteria of recognizing the independence of the territories of frozen conflicts and approaches to their resolution, "Vzglyad" cites Viktor Yanukovich's words referring to "ITAR-TASS". In his words, Ukraine "is ready to support the process of equality between the value of democracy and the rights of peoples situated on the territories of frozen conflicts".
The official Tbilisi did not notice the impending storm clouds. It is notable that so far the eloquent Georgian politicians have abstained from comments. Just the Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili who has been visiting the US for 20 days burst into another PR speech of his. "Russia has not managed to stop the development of Georgia, and it is continuing to go ahead", the "News-Georgia" agency cites Saakashvili's speech at the annual international conference of the Milken Institute in Los Angeles where he spoke on the relations between Russia and Georgia and on economic and democratic achievements. Mikhail Nikolaevich told the audience about the country achievements in the area of economic and democratic reforms.
But what should he do with Ukraine which was the main partner of Georgia during the presidency of Viktor Yushchenko? It seems that the mission of the main negotiator with the new Ukrainian government has been undertaken by the Georgian Minister of Euroatlantic Integration Giorgy Baramidze. Today he went to Kiev for the international forum Europe-Ukraine. According to the Georgian mass media, during the forum the Vice Premier of Georgia will present a speech and will touch upon the issues of regional security, Eastern partnership and regional co-operation. Baramidze is planning to meet the Chairman of the Euroatlantic Committee of the Verkhovna Rada Boris Tarasyuk, the first president of Ukraine Anatoly Kravchuk and the ex President of Ukraine Leonid Kuchma. Nothing has been said regarding the probability of his meeting with the new President Viktor Yanukovich.
