С-300: Tbilisi’s nightmare

2010-08-13 18:01

6660.jpegThese days, information on Russia locating C-300 air defense systems in Abkhazia has been actively circulating through the world information space. The territorially anxious Georgian regime is again beating an alarm: Tbilisi diplomats are going to shower international organizations with complaints, trying now to arouse one's pity. Why panicking, gentlemen?


Russia is intended to defend its southern boundaries and the Transcaucasian republic's skies - that is the purpose of switching the universally known air defense systems to the unquiet region. Is there anything criminal about it? Apsny has at last obtained the long-awaited independence and is building a new state step by step, trying not to look back at the past conflicts and wars. Naturally, the Kremlin is also concerned about the safety of its citizens.

But no. As was expected, Tbilisi has again got on its hind legs. This time, Georgian strategists fear that Moscow continues militarization of the "occupied territories", and the "inadequate weapon" may get into the hands of "inadequate people".

Well, today, the notion of adequacy may be interpreted differently. Is it normal to chew one's tie, for example? Seems to be so, in Saakashvili's residence. But why then Georgian diplomats hurriedly characterize Abkhaz leaders as "inadequate"? Is it because they have been unable to understand them for so long? To understand their intentions, aspirations and expectations. As for current subjective reality of the Georgian regime, it falls far behind the objective one.

But let us get back to С-300. The point is that there are two Russian bases currently constructed in Abkhazia, a naval and an air one. As Moscow expects, the port of Ochamchira will be used considering the existing threat of subversion and terrorist acts on the part of Georgian special services, which means that the base will be equipped with all types of underwater, above-water, air and above-ground defense.

The same is about the military airdrome in Bombor. Let us not ignore the preparation for Olympics-2014, which has the same effect on Tbilisi as a red rag on a bull. As was stated by Russian Air Forces Chief Commander Alexander Zelin, the task of C-300 in Abkhazia is not only to cover the territory but, of course, to prevent the violation of state frontiers in the air and destroy any aircrafts in the territory, whatever their purpose might be: reconnaissance or terrorism.

Well, what is so surprising in locating C-300, dear Georgian diplomats? When the United States agree with the Eastern Europe upon setting-up a whole anti-ballistic missile defense system, Tbilisi takes this fact much more calmly, mind you. Moreover, it offers Washington to locate ADMS in the Georgina territory! That's interesting logics, however.

It is notable that the White House, on which Saakashvili's henchmen have been putting so much hope, took the switch of C-300 to Abkhazia rather easy. According to the US State Department Spokesman Philip Crowley, Pentagon believes that Russian systems have been used in the Transcaucasian republic for several years already.

To be honest, I almost expected a high tirade from the foreign know-it-alls as soon as I came to know of the air defense forces location in the South Caucasus. What is the reason of Washington's indifference? Answering this question to GeorgiaTimes correspondent, Deputy Director General of Political Technologies Center Foundation Sergey Mikheev said that both the USA and the West have to a significant extent adopted the status quo that developed after the August 2008 war.
