Georgia: post-riot maneuvers
NATO initiated Cooperative Longbow 09/Cooperative Lancer 09 exercises in Georgia. The republic’s Ministry of Defense stated that regardless of the riot in Mukhrovani armored battalion the military exercises would be carried out as planned.

NATO exercises have begun in Georgia. Simultaneously the Interior Ministry keeps arresting the Mukhrovani rioters. All this slightly affected the schedule of opposition actions.
Will Europeans figure out the Mukhrovani riot puzzle?
50 officers and 13 civilians were detained following the incident in Mukhrovani. The names of the detainees are kept secret except for General Koba Kobaladze and expert Vakhtang Maisaya. The opposition accuses the authorities of a new provocation calling for international investigation. Foreign diplomats accredited in Georgia state they are waiting for the Georgian Interior Ministry to present investigation results.

Suppressing a “mutiny” in Mukhrovani, putting Chairman of the “Generals Club” Koba Kobaladze under arrest, discovering the “espionage activites” of Irakli Maisaya, a military expert – this is an incomplete list of the heroic actions taken by the Georgian law-enforcement authorities within the last two days. Such turbulent events are just inconceivable for the civilized Europe. Still, political surrealism of Georgia becomes more and more evident. It turns out that the attempt upon the life of Vano Merabishvili, Head of MIA, has been prevented the same stormy days in May.2009-05-07 19:56
