Russian Church belied by Georgia Online site

6426.jpegThe editor's office of Georgia Online, an information and analytical portal, is located in Kustava 38, Tbilisi. This is one more instrument in a propaganda war against Russia, Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Many people remember an attempt of economic sabotage launched by the site in Moscow late in October 2008 when "sensational" information on alleged collapse of Russian ruble rate provoked a short panic in a number of exchange offices in Moscow.


As the journalist investigation carried out without delay showed, the pseudo-event was announced by Georgia Online web-portal with reference to Reuters, a reputable British agency. However, employees of Reuters office in Moscow categorically refuted dissemination of this provocative news. The story made the press think that the busted site had collaborated with Georgian special services in an anti-Russian operation.

A didactically entitled article by David Kartveshvili "Heresy won't

lead to the church" recently posted on Georgia Online fulfills the same anti-Russian tasks with equally provocative methods on a different material this time. That is why the article deserves thorough reading and analysis, if only an addressee of the new fake does not want to be vulgarly deceived again refusing to become an object of a new manipulation launched by Georgian  experts in black PR technologies.

So then, Tbilisi internet-portal defining the scope of its professional interests as dissemination of "Georgian news" as well as expert and analytical opinions on such issues as "conflicts", "economics and finance of Georgia", "geopolitics of Caucasus", "Georgia on the way to NATO" suddenly gets concerned over the question of ... preservation of purity of Orthodox faith in the Russian Church.  

Like many other articles on the site, this verbose opus is full of stylistic mistakes and curious nonsense that offend the Russian eye. What is unprecedented in the genre of journalist commentary is an extensive attachment exceeding the author's text - a textbookish collection of lengthy extracts from the Apostolic

Rules and Acts of the Ecumenical Councils.

It is hard to say why Mr. Kartveshvili chose such an extraordinary method from the point of view of loyalty to commonly acknowledged formats of present-day internet-journalism. Maybe, the Church fathers were referred to in order to seemingly reinforce the author's shaky quasi-theological speculations with their ancient authority.  Or maybe batono Kartveshvili was sincerely mistaken thinking that no one had touched these texts before him and driven by enlightenment zest innocently but proudly "unveiled" to us what the Christian world has known for ages. Finally it is also possible that as a person who found himself in the world of wise thoughts for the first time Mr. Kartveshvili got a strong cultural shock and couldn't resist the temptation to take away the treasures he discovered and slightly embellish his poor creation on Georgia Online...

At all events, the formal newsbreak for this awkward and non-easily-understandable text was the XVII annual General Assembly of Inter-parliamentary assembly of Orthodoxy held in Yerevan in June dedicated to "Contribution of Orthodoxy into establishment and development of statehood of countries of Oriental Christian tradition".

The author of the article on Georgia Online site took all this plus some extra
