Saakashvili stealing a holiday from refugees
Georgian government scheduled another wave of refugee migration for the New Year holidays. As the saying goes, God with the holiday, Devil with the work. Instead of decorating Christmas trees and cooking satsivi, the Abkhaz Georgians are going to move in and brush up their country houses in the west and east outskirts of the country. There is nothing good in store for them, that’s why they came out to the square in front of the Mayor’s office one of these days. Summer migrants already dream of coming back; the point is that they are not wanted in Tbilisi.
Georgia spoiled by housing problems
President of South Ossetia Eduard Kokoity has signed a decree making all the real estate transactions closed in Leningorski region in 1991-2008 invalid. That’s quite a logic step, in Tskhinval’s opinion. The region has been controlled by Georgian authorities for seventeen years. Having signed the decree, Kokoity cancelled those legislative acts that are illegal from the point of view of the republic. However, Tbilisi, accustomed to demanding legality restoration and respect for the refugees’ property rights, did not support the initiative of the South-Ossetian authorities and called their actions “ethnic cleansing”.

Tbilisi has learned to discern between Putin and Onishenko
The old issue is back into the spotlight in Georgian media: to approve or not to approve of Russia’s entry into WTO? The interest to the problem, that seems to have been solved by official Tbilisi in “fighting-up-to-the-last-ditch” style, has been revived by the achievements of Russian diplomats in their contacts with WTO’s protagonists – USA and the European Union. To the disappointment of Georgian leaders the balance of forces has shifted in favor of Moscow and Sakartvelo mass media rush into a new ideological battle.
