Georgia, Führer is here

2010-08-03 12:57


A new situation is developing in Georgia that might seriously shuffle the ruling pack. Soviet dissident Irakli Tsereteli - the word "former" should be left out for there are no formers in history - came onto political stage in full glory. This time, the irreplaceable leader of National Independence Party founded De-occupation Movement. Patriarch of anti-Sovietism and anti-Russian policy picked the right time and idea, which may bring him to power at last.


According to the statement made by Irakli Tsereteli and his associates, who are referred to as symbolic figures (one might suppose who they are), the anti-occupational movement is aimed at "expelling Russian troops from Abkhazia and South Ossetia, restoring the country's territorial integrity, concluding an agreement on military union with the USA and locating American military bases in the Georgian territory".

One might take the creation of another Georgian organization rather calmly, except that the personality of this man is too odious: Tsereteli was one of the initiators of the bloody events in April 1989.

At the end of March - beginning of April 1989, political situation in Georgia got seriously aggravated due to events in Abkhazia, which declared its withdrawal from Georgia. The fact induced a many-day unauthorized meeting held by informal organizations in front of the Government House in Tbilisi. By April 6, the meeting acquired an anti-Soviet character and the protesters advanced a demand of Georgia's withdrawal from the USSR.

The initiators gathered detachments armed with metal sticks, stones, chains and other improvised means. Money was collected to buy fire arms. The total number of protesters who gathered in the restricted area near the Government House and TV studio building amounted to about 8-10 thousand people. The meeting was cordoned off by troops and police.

Head of Tbilisi Department of Internal Affairs Colonel Gventsadze and Catholicos of Georgia Ilia II called upon the people to break. Unfortunately, their actions had no effect.

At 4 a.m. on April 9, General Igor Rodionov ordered to squeeze the protesters out of the square. There was panic and jam. 16 people died at the scene of the accident, while another three died in hospital soon.

According to medicolegal commission, the death of all people but one was caused by asphyxia in the result of chest compression in the crowd.

Georgian press still asserts that military men killed dozens of citizens with pioneer spades. Commission of Congress of People's Deputies reported 21 cases of wounds given with the use of spades. According to prosecutor's office, medical experts revealed 7 people who suffered from spades. Besides, 30 troopers were injured, which means they had to defend themselves.

Despite his talent as a provoker, Tsereteli got nothing at that time of troubles, which touched him to the very roots.

Then Civil War came. It was clear even to Mrs Novodvorskaya, who went to Georgia together with human rights defenders and witnessed the horrible situation in the country, that "Iralki Tsereteli laid a very bad foundation of a very bad process".

And here comes the second act of the freak show. Tsereteli once again came upon the stage of the Georgian policy: "The issue of my coming to power is settled in Heaven". Not bad, isn't it?
