Just a month ago, Mikheil Saakashvili held a pompous opening of a new high road in Georgia. The 221-kilometer route has a great meaning for the country, for it will connect southern regions with the capital. Since the USSR collapse, it has been easier to get to Turkey and Armenia from southern regions than to Tbilisi. The only mishap is that the non-governmental organizations have found out that the road was built with violation of construction standards and characterized the contractor’s activity as swindle.
Georgia putting Caucasian nations against each other
Georgia has been displaying ostentatious love for the Caucasus of late. It has opened boundaries for southern republics and tries to convince the world that the brotherly Caucasian countries should close the ranks around it. Saakashvili is making every effort to portray himself as a father of a large Caucasian family. Well, Sakartvelo president’s entangled family relations are no secret. However, in their love for the North-Caucasian neighbours, Georgian authorities seem to despise them deep in their heart, or fear them.
