Mikhail Saakashvili has brought the country to a dead-lock
Within the year that has passed since the criminal decision taken by President Saakashvili that has tuned to be so tragic for the people of South Ossetia and Georgia and that implied bringing back by force the autonomous republic, which, in the beginning of the 90s, after the bloody punitive actions undertaken by Tbilisi quitted Georgia, the situation around the two young states of South Ossetia and Abkhazia is gradually taking the form of a status quo.
The last August moral
Generally speaking, there are two points of view in Georgia regarding the circumstances of the last year war that started with an expected and, at the same time, sudden attack of the Georgian army at Tskhinval. The official Tbilisi keeps blaming Moscow for having allegedly provoked it. The opposition is angry with the imprudent actions taken by President Mikhail Saakashvili and cannot put up with the loss of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Russia says that the Georgians should only blame themselves.

The latest incidents in the Georgian-South-Ossetian border-zone have pushed the president of the young republic Eduard Kokoity towards the decision to close the state border. Moscow has also made its contribution – the Russian troops of the fourth military base dislocated in Tskhinval and Java were put to intensive routine. The agreed measures on preventing new provocative actions seem to have taken certain effect: the situation on the border has become quieter.
