Rodents attack Georgia
Farmers in several regions of Georgia have been simultaneously attacked by field mice. The rodents destroy grain seeds leaving people without hope for a good harvest in 2011, so desired after the dry summer of 2010. Georgia’s ministry of agriculture blames global warming that keeps mice awake in their holes. Village residents, however, complain that the state provides anti-rodent chemicals only to those who grow trendy breeds of grain crops.
Tedo Japaridze, a “Kremlin agent”
Tedo Japaridze, an honored scholar and diplomat of international renown, is now in Georgia’s list of “unreliable figures”. The country’s ministry of foreign affairs condemns his activities in the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation. It is believed in Tbilisi that the author of a number of scientific works is unworthy of his position because of illiteracy. Though evidently he is not trusted for political reasons: he is well treated in Russia, and he has too good relations with Russian politicians and scholars.
Refugees against “fantastic” minister
While the refugees ousted from the Georgian capital are holding protest actions near the building of Ministry for Resettlement, Head of the administration Koba Subeliani is making curious statements. In his opinion, so much has been done for the migrants from Abkhazia and South Ossetia this year that it would have seemed fantastic some time before.

Mishiko driving a wedge in the opposition
The split between the Georgian oppositional powers is widening. On Tuesday, Nino Burjanadze and Zurab Nogaideli were present at the opening of the memorial “We fought fascism together” in Moscow. Then they in turn met with the head of the Russian government Vladimir Putin. However, an unpleasant surprise was waiting for each of them on their return home. Former PM’s party fellows accused him of appropriating the party’s treasury and removed him from the post of the fraction leader. Another opponent to the current authorities Irakli Alasania announced that he considered the participation of Nogaideli and the former speaker of parliament in the Moscow ceremony to be a shame. Such utterances clearly show the way Saakashvili’s regime still manages to stay up.
