Saakashvili grabs a newspaper2011-08-23 20:22
Georgia is still trying to gain from the media war between the West and the Russian Federation. Though global community acknowledged falseness of a number of interpretations of the events, Tbilisi keeps writing. Today the Caucasian republic insolently asserts that Georgia was struggling against Moscow on TV channels and newspaper pages and lost only for the insufficiency of political weight. Yet, Mikheil Saakashvili's "envoys" are sure they will win. Who is the target audience of this propaganda?
On the first days of the real war the authority of Russia in the international arena unprecedentedly lost 90 per cent thanks to Western reporters working on political orders from their corporations toadying to the United States of America It is not an achievement of the Georgian press. Even European mass media failed to remain unbiased under Washington's pressure disseminating falsifications about "Russian invaders" of small Georgia. After Mikheil Saakashvili was forced to peace and left to face a small bunch of tanks, submachine guns and newspapers that failed a real democracy test, truth was revealed.
Even PIK TV channel nurtured by Mr Saakashvili as if it was his child, was not the panacea the current regime relied on. Three years have passed but instruments of Georgian journalists have not changed at all. Like their Western colleagues in the heat of the August war, they keep making up traditional stories and familiar political images like the most dreadful features of the "occupants". Reference to historical memory of Europeans, Eastern Europe - to be more exact, is connected with Soviet symbols. Evaluation of actions of the Russian government, emphatically named "Kremlin propaganda" can't do without mention of the "red plague", WWII and other atrocities that keep Georgian people awake at night. Apparently, the USSR that boosted Georgia's economic development is Mikheil Saakashvili's real headache.
Presently, liberation of South Ossetia from Georgian yoke is interpreted like invasion and assault on Georgia's "territorial integrity". Comparison with the entry of Soviet troops to Afghanistan and Czechoslovakia is the plot Saakashvili-controlled mass media are overusing. They are not ashamed to describe details an average European would consider as most unpleasant: the odious figure of Josef Stalin compared to Russian PM Vladimir Putin. Now, however, realizing hopelessness of such parallels (after all, it's Russian PM that gives light and warmth to Europe at a reasonable price), a new image appears - a sort of Russian Hitler.
Yet, judging the Russian Federation by playing on nerves gets still more complicated. Demonstrative refusals of Moscow delegations to take part in joint summit talks with Georgia is the prerogative that the microscopic under-state or the global community are not able to change. No wonder, Sakartvelo criticizes the European Union together with Kremlin still more frequently. Not long ago the republic dreamt of joining the EU. After the change of foreign policy toward the North Atlantic Alliance, new methods of struggle against "treacherous Kremlin" appeared with battles smoothly moving to Brussels. Georgians are displeased with the continental union reproaching Europe for sitting on an energy leash and thus being unable to confirm its solidarity with the "oppressed" people of Georgia.
