Georgian trace in Moscow metro
Tbilisi experts were expecting statements from Nikolay Patrushev, secretary of the Russian Security Council about ties between the terrorists and Georgian special services. Indeed, a version about the Georgian trace in Moscow terrorist attacks sounds natural with the Federal Security Service having evidence that North Caucasian insurgents were financed from Georgia and considering that TNT blocks and guns imported from Georgia were seized from terrorists in Azerbaijan a few days before the terrorist attack. Familiar with the facts, official Tbilisi has already expressed eagerness to take part in metro explosions investigation.
War as mentality
Recently official representatives of Tbilisi confirmed Georgia’s refusal to sign a non-aggression treaty with Abkhazia and South Ossetia that the young republics consider crucial for security provision in Caucasus. Given that Georgia continues to enhance its military potential and provoke the country’s population with false media stories one thing seems absolutely clear – the republic sees no obstacles for a new war.
Abkhaz-Kosovo parallels drawing apart
No one would argue that the precedent in Kosovo made the recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia possible. However, Russia, which supports Serbia’s integrity, does not welcome reducing the situation in the Balkans and in the Caucasus to the same denomination, as well as the USA, which is much concerned about Georgia’s integrity, are opposed to a comparison like that. As American Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has stated on the Russian TV air,, “we can see a great difference”, while Foreign Ministry of Abkhazia characterized such position as the “double standards policy”.

Armed terrorists from Georgia
On the day the terrorist acts were committed in the Moscow underground, State Security Ministry of Azerbaijan disseminated information on disclosing a terrorist net that was provided with weapon from Georgia. The official Tbilisi has already promised to handle the situation; however, this will hardly prevent the Caucasian terrorism.2010-03-31 00:21
Terrorist acts in Moscow: Georgia panicking
The recent explosions in Moscow underground have shocked the entire world community. For the first time since August 2008, the Georgian government expressed solidarity with the Russian authorities. For instance, President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili expressed condolences to the families of those who died and criticized the events that happened. “Terrorism is a universal problem; this time, dozens of innocent citizens became the terrorists’ victims in Moscow”, - president of Georgia underlined. Everything seems to comply with the common standards and the general human position, and today’s comments made by the Georgian experts and TV officials seem to be still more surprising. It has been announced from the Tbilisian screens within the whole day that the Georgians will evidently be blamed for the terrorist acts.
