Armenians to pay for US blackmail on Ankara

The coming frenzy is concentrated around the Georgian media possessing a unique ability of taking over “someone else’s” job, that is, of making politics instead of just covering the processes. As the people have noticed a long time ago, the rumours appearing in the media have got the tendency to be confirmed in a while.
