News on construction of a radar station in the vicinity of Tskhinval has caused a new hysterical fit among Georgian leadership. An unnamed official in Georgian government stated in his comment for Telegraph newspaper (Great Britain) that “Moscow is actively preparing for a repeat of the 2008 August”. According to him the Russian radar and electronic surveillance station in South Ossetia represents a new threat to Georgia’s security underlining that the equipment to be installed at the station will enable Russia to track air movements, as well as intercept mobile and other – both military and civil - communications. Paranoia in Georgian government is not surprising just like its technical illiteracy. Construction of a Russian military base in South Ossetia is not a secret. Just like deployment of technical facilities in its territory in order to provide security of Russia’s southern borders. Construction of a radar station is totally in line with this concept.
The recent detention of the Georgian drug dealers has unexpectedly turned to the benefit of the secondary education system. By the decision of President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili, 1,7 million euros confiscated by the police will be spent on computers for the first-graders. Let us remind you that this April, Saakashvili promised to present all the first-graders with personal “waterproof and shockproof” computers. Leaving the bold statement as to the technical characteristics of the presents on the Georgian president’s head, one should pay attention to another important point. Mikhail Nikolozovitch seems to dispose of the money confiscated from the drug dealers as if it were his own means, which looks rather strange. There has been no trial yet and no judgment has been delivered on the matter: anyway, the money is the material evidence in the opened criminal case.
