Tbilisi clings to foreign culture
Georgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs is used to accusing “separatists” in a global manner – of “ethnic cleansings” for instance. When the stream of bright ideas runs short, ministry employees take out templates of statements and addresses that never look out-of-date. Like, for instance, the latest address to UNESCO on “Georgian monuments” in Abkhazia. Georgian leaders call on the organization to “stop purposeful destruction of Georgia’s historic and cultural monuments in the occupied territories”.
Ukrainian “eagles” on the way to Georgian mountains
Kiev and Tbilisi have agreed to continue trainings for Ukrainian infantry units in Georgian mountains. Ukrainian defense minister Mikhail Ezhel has complimented the Georgian mountainous marksmanship center stating there are things worth learning. The question is why Ukraine, far not the highest country in the world, needs a special unit of “Georgian” shooters given chronic lack of cash for alimentation of the contingent.
Georgian Ministry of Defense unable to assess the threat
Mikheil Saakashvili will not longer entrust the Caucasian republic with such an important thing as threats assessment. The document will be developed by National Security Council. Head of Georgia has vested it with this function, having initiated amendments to the draft law “On defense planning”. The recent personnel shuffle after which representative of the parliament majority Giga Bokeria became head of the defense administration means only one thing: the “grey eminence” will conduct the policy fitting the government’s plans.2010-11-26 20:09
Georgians held a meeting and broke up
People’s Representative Assembly in Tbilisi has completed its work. According to the participants’ estimate, about 25 thousand people from various regions of Georgia gathered today in Rustaveli Avenue to announce impeachment of President Mikheil Saakashvili, express their mistrust in parliament and disagreement with constitutional amendments. However, public authorities ignored the people: the head of the state was away in Moldavia, while parliamentarians had transferred their sessions to Batumi – right to the concert given by famous tenor Placido Domingo.
