EU recommends to make it up with Russia
Peter Semneby, EU Representative to Georgia urges official Tbilisi to set up normal relations with Moscow – at least in economy. By the way this is what part of Georgian opposition has been busy with (and not without success). Now the dialogue is a recommendation to the government. But EU’s change over Russia’s role with Georgia does not mean Brussels’ refusal to get closer to this country.
The third series of flights between Moscow and Tbilisi has been scheduled for the end of May and June. A relevant request has been made by the Georgian Airways Air Company and the Russian MFA has announced its approval of the practice. Air carriers ask not to confuse the issue of transport connection with politics. However, it is publicly known that the changes came only when part of the opposition led by former Prime Minister Zurab Nogaideli started lobbying Georgia’s interests in Russia.

The “outcome” of the elections already announced
The Georgian authorities are going to win the local elections. This can hardly be doubted, especially after the uncompromising result of an American research: the ruling party is supported by more than a half of the citizens of the capital and over one third of the country’s population. The opposition believes the poll to be “paid”, although it is going to be the bar for the electoral commissions to level up their figures. The most beneficial position is taken up by leader of Movement for United Georgia Nino Burdzhanadze who is boycotting the elections.
