The Lost Georgia: Angel’s wings stolen

2011-08-12 12:43

The Lost Georgia: Angel’s wings stolen. 20762.jpeg200 years ago Georgian prince Bagration was protecting Moscow against Napoleon's troops and a short time afterwards Tbilisi was the last refuge for Griboyedov, a great Russian dramatist. Friendship between our nations has been getting stronger for centuries. Georgia gave Russia a constellation of prominent commanders, statesmen, scholars and artists. It is a pity to realize that crimes of one person, Saakashvili, crossed out ancient ties between Georgians and Russians now viewing each other as adversaries.


Russian president Dmitry Medvedehas called to summon the international tribunal on Mikheil Saakashvili's crimes. Yet, the master of Avlabari must face a trial not only for the genocide of Ossetians and the start of the August war. Saakashvili's gravest fault is breakdown of historical and cultural ties between two nations. The ties that have been formed for centuries. It took the US protégé a few years to destroy the cultural space that was set up before the appearance of Uncle Sam.

Two hundred years ago Russia saved the Georgian nation from enslavement by non-Christians - Turkey and Iran that dreamed to «make a river of the Georgian blood". In exchange, the native land of Shota Rustaveli enriched the Russian history and culture with a number of brilliant names - from the glorious Bagrations, Tsitsianovs and others that gave their new motherland many talents in various spheres up to Mikhail Kalatazov, Zurab Sotkilava, Sofiko Chiaureli, Tamara Gvardtsiteli, etc., all prominent figures of Soviet culture. The entire Soviet Union empathized with great Sergo Zakariadze starring in the Father of a Soldier movie and laughed at adventures of Georgi Danelia's characters. No one could imagine that in two or three decades cheerful and hospitable Georgians will be treated as enemies.

Mikheil Saakashvili demonstrated himself as a totally mediocre statesman, yet an outstanding provoker and manipulator. Brought up on US propaganda, he managed to impose his maniacal Russophobia on the entire nation. To make his nationals forget about historical roots and national identity, he completely destroyed Georgian culture. Over 8 years of his time in office the number of children receiving secondary education was reduced by half. Social sciences turned into heaps of myths and propaganda - in worst Soviet traditions - and technical education is almost completely lost.

The story of the memorial in Kutaisi dedicated to the perished in the Great Patriotic War is a perfect demonstration of Saakashvili's attitude to historical memory common for all nations of the Soviet Union including Georgians. Hiding behind slogans on economy modernization and involvement of the Georgian society into globalization processes, Saakashvili is trying to lobotomize his entire nation.
