Ebralidze’s wearing-out strategy in chase of presidential seat
Russian businessman of the Georgian origin Alexander Ebralidze, an avid critic of the current President Mikhail Saakashvili, refused to take part in the upcoming presidential elections. His opinion, however, is valued in Sakartvelo: he is one of the most successful representatives of the Georgian expatriate community in Russia. The businessman never concealed his desire to take the seat of the current head of state as quick as possible. The point is that he cannot run in the elections according to the republic’s legislation, while Ebralidze, unlike Saakashvili, agrees to obey to letter of the law, even in an unfair way.
Belarus to cut Georgian line
The Customs Union member states are unifying the passport and visa regime. Accordingly, Belarus may soon close the border for Georgians. These are Moscow’s intrigues, as Tbilisi politologists immediately announced. In reality, Georgia is not the only country to be affected by the changes. In addition to Minsk, Georgian citizens will be denied access to Astana. Yet, the citizens of Georgia, the country of most successful reforms in the post-Soviet space, are much less interested in the Kazakh direction. Two most popular escape routes from Saakashvili’s paradise (to Russia and to the West) run through Belarus - “Batka’s patrimony”.
Europe to conquer Caucasus with soft power
The European Union has long been thinking over the situation in South Caucasus concluding logically that main peacekeeping efforts were focused on Georgia only. However, Geneva discussions invented by the UN, OSCE and EU for conflicting parties have arrived at a dead end. A new report on stabilization of the situation in the region highlights Nagorny Karabakh as a territory of special attention. Closed borders between Armenia and Azerbaijan clearly show that main problems have not been eliminated. The European Union must apply soft power to force the disputing parties to agree on a compromise.
