Georgia – CIS: never say never
On January 22 Georgian parliament will officially secede from the Inter-parliamentary Assembly of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) explaining that the assembly has always been a formal structure without any functions. Remarkably, saying good-bye to the CIS Georgia plans to stay in nearly 75 international treaties signed within CIS framework. A logical question arises: whom do current Georgian authorities want to show their independence from the CIS to and why?
Forgetting the past
Last week, President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko, who has been serving his last days in office, made a loud statement. On January 14 he told the press that he was going to initiate the establishment of the international tribunal over the crimes of communism. For instance, Yushchenko said that he would make such proposal to the leaders of the East Europe countries, who, in his opinion, have suffered from the communist regime. The Ukrainian president, who thinks continentally, believes that the establishment of a judicial body like this should be based upon the precedent of conviction of the crimes of the fascist Germany by Nurnberg tribunal. In the opinion of Yushchenko, it “should become the ground for passing a sentence to Stalin’s totalitarian regime, which is the creator, the inspirer and the teacher of the Nazi regime in Germany. It was Stalin’s regime that insured the revival and the establishment of the German military potential in the 30s”.
Saakashvili’s new PR move
Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili announced the start of a campaign advertising Georgia and its health resorts. Info spots and programs on Georgia’s tourism potential will be broadcast on all international channels including BBC and CNN which, as Saakashvili thinks, will contribute to making the country popular worldwide. Will this PR move help Georgia create a positive country image?
