Sakartvelo experts’ malevolence doesn’t bother Abkhazia2010-12-07 19:35
Georgian experts and politicians are rejoicing: they are celebrating the "aggravation" of the Russian-Abkhaz relationship and predicting a sharp turn of Abkhazia towards Georgia. Moreover, it is the first time the Georgian expert community voices its readiness to support the Abkhaz so that they could get out of the "Russian dragon's" claws. It doesn't matter that the Abkhaz community thinks differently and does not want the Georgian "advocates" to save their country. Georgia has made it customary to take decision for the "minorities".
Abkhazia is conducting a wrong foreign policy, while Foreign Minister Maxim Gvindzhia should be put to trial for wasting the taxpayers' money on the far trips to Latin America where he is trying to obtain recognition. As for the Abkhaz, they should immediately block the Russian frontier with cement bricks and turn their eyes to those who wish them good with all their heart.
The Abkhaz wouldn't notice a whole country "next to its door" that is deeply concerned about their independence and identity. The name of this country is Georgia.
Moreover, Georgia is thinking hard about how to build a truly independent Abkhaz state and knows the recipe of saving the republic from the Russian occupation. Seriously speaking, the Georgian political crowd has decided that the Russian-Abkhaz relationship has come to a deadlock and is ready to dance a Lezgin dance on the occasion.
What is that - malevolence or hope that the Abkhaz, being "disappointed with Russia", will turn their eyes to Georgia? In fact, there is nothing reassuring for Georgia in the Abkhaz processes. Relationship with Russia is the most actively discussed topic in today's Abkhazia.
The authorities and the opposition seem to have a different version of how one should build relationship with a strategic ally. Last week, President Sergey Bagapsh spent a lot of time on discussing the Russian-Abkhaz problems with the prominent people of the republic. He does not welcome the oppositionists and publicists' criticism, which, in his opinion, goes beyond the "red line". Bagapsh says that the opposition would carry out just the same policy if they were him. "The same policy" means the maximum use of Russian financial assistance for reviving the infrastructure, enforcing Russia's defensive shield and active economical integration.
On December 1, the oppositional forces held a round-table talk concluding that the government's pro-Russian policy constitutes a threat for national security. In fact, the opposition's claims consist of the following. Firstly, in their opinion, the government is conducting a non-transparent policy in what concerns the signing of agreements and economic cooperation with large Russian companies. Secondly, the opposition fears corruption in the realization of the projects sponsored by means of Russian tranches. And thirdly, it is afraid lest the state should sell strategic objects under the disguise of "friendship with Russia".
As we can see, Russian-Abkhaz relationship in this case is a subject for discussion between the Abkhaz politicians inside the country. No one is thinking of disputing the strategic importance of the alliance with Russia for Abkhazia's future. "We highly appreciate the true partnership and friendly relations between Russia and Abkhazia. No one should be allowed to trade on the Russia-Abkhazia relationship. We owe its high level primarily to the people of the two countries", - the latest statement of the oppositional forces goes.
