Mishiko left his people in Egypt
President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili has now got the full right to put on Moses’ chiton and dwell on the Promised Land. He has been given a unique chance to repeat the feat of the Biblical prophet. Even if his dreams about Abkhazia and South Ossetia are hopeless, it does not diminish the comparison. Neither did Moses see the Promised Land – that was the way God punished him for the displayed lack of belief; still, the prophet is known for leading the people from Egypt and bringing them where necessary. Now Mishiko has got a similar chance.

In December 2010 Georgian parliament promised to consider amendments to the law forbidding offshore firms to own TV companies.

European “spy” kicked away from Abkhazia
It was suggested to President of Abkhazia Sergey Bagapsh that he should declare EU Spokesman in the South Caucasus persona non grata. Aruaa (“Warriors”) oppositional movement is afraid lest Peter Semneby might drag Abkhazia into Georgia by hook or by crook, while simpletons from the republic’s MFA will not even notice it. While the opposition is criticizing the government’s foreign policy, the latter is increasing activity in European direction. Yesterday, Head of the EU Monitoring Mission Hansjörg Haber came back from his three-day trip to Abkhazia.
