Georgia is becoming history2011-10-12 22:46
The chronicles call the Russian empire the savior of orthodox policies in the Caucasus. But the current Georgian leadership is confident that George's treatise was the biggest fraud of the Georgian people, as it deprived the house of Bagration of the right to sovereignty within its territory. And it is a mystery why they blame Russia which at one time lost its main pillar of the state - the emperor. But the story develops in a spiral and now Mikhail Saakashvili's desire to please the United States can make him trigger a backflash.
Judging by the nature of anti-Russian publications in the Georgian media, Caucasian people is obviously offended by the "big brother". Moreover, this offense is so old that the youth of today's Sakartvelo is not tolerant towards Russia but can not even explain why. Meanwhile, a new generation of Russians skeptical looks at the attempts of Georgia to introduce themselves a bright spot on the geopolitical map - and besides "Borjomi", as well as a literary work "The Knight in Panther's Skin" does not recall anything remarkable from the national culture of the Caucasian republic. So, who is responsible for the fact that the gap between the two Orthodox nations is only expanding over the years?
Georgians themselves, of course, blame Russia and its rulers in all the troubles. They signed a deal with the princes of the separate principalities which unites the Caucasian lands under the direction of the house of Bagration. If not for George's treatise, there would have been Georgia's territorial integrity about which they now are fervently cares. Unity of Orthodox Peoples of the East under the patronage of the Russian Empire was to weaken the Ottoman and Persian sultans spreading Muslim influence in Europe. Today, as we can see, the policy of multiculturalism, which was supposed to help the Old World to deal with the assimilation of migrants, has failed completely - the Islamic world took a solid niche in European society.
In order to prevent the tortures of people of the Caucasus from Iran and Turkey, Russia had to become a patron of orthodoxy to restore the Armenian state and to organize a strategic military foothold at most of its borders. St. George's treatise at the time was beneficial to both parties and Georgian tsars have always got an opportunity to confront to external enemies. However, history does not know the subjunctive, and Georgia joined the Russian Empire as its most loyal ally receiving legal guarantee to protect and preserve Georgian statehood. What happened then, the northern neighbor calls the change in foreign policy and the Georgians themselves - "the treacherous betrayal".
On the one hand, given the Caucasian mentality, it is not surprising that the hot blood of the highlanders is still seething with anger. Nevertheless, the reasons why Russia has changed interpretation of George's treatise do not detract from the merits of Georgians in expanding the influence of the empire, neither it does turn Russian emperors into enemies of the Caucasus. But, apparently, Mikhail Saakashvili and new Georgia's patron have a new plan for the expense of other important region which connects Europe and Asia and having a huge number of attractive energy and transport corridors. Cultivation of nationalist propaganda came to fruition. A matter of bygone years now became touted as the main reason for the confrontation between Moscow and Tbilisi.
