Sakartvelo to Be Scrapped
Life in Georgia is turning into a struggle for survival. The story of the old woman who was looking for copper near the railway is another confirmation. But metal scrap that has become manna from heaven for Georgians is also quite attractive for the government of the Caucasian republic. The export of scrap to neighbouring Georgia, distant India and Bangladesh is one of the first revenues of the Sakartvelo budget, drawing nearer to wine-making and mineral water production. But the rapturous desire of Georgian citizens to earn a little money upsets the Cabinet of Ministers. So much that they decided to introduce nonferrous metal excise.
Terrible Mission of Father Kuraev
"Can Russia do anything good?!" This slightly turned evangelical yell of the mass media dependent on official Tbilisi is more than appropriate. One would think: what harm can there be if an Orthodox missionary Andrey Kuraev comes to Abkhazia? But the pro-Tbilisi journalists always contrive to see something negative. Are they irritated by quiet non-politicized conversation or does he just not realize that people can seriously speak on spiritual subjects?
Georgia without corruption. For publicity purposes
It looks like Mikhail Saakashvili has completely got tied up in knots. Delivering a recent speech in parliament, he boasted again that the world community has recognized Georgia as the most active country in corruption control. He also remarked that the materials on the safe Caucasian republic were once again published by Financial Times British newspaper and American Wall Street Journal. However, the cat is always out of the bag and soon the Georgian president will be no more able to feed his people with the tales about fair government. It turns out that the loyalty of the western press cost Sakartvelo’s people one and a half million laris.

Israel winning Caucasian game
The recent state of the Georgian establishment, common politicians and experts is close to shock. Israel, which has been one of Tbilisi’s major allies, friends, supporters and arms suppliers, has suddenly turned hostile. Having visited Abkhazia, Israeli spokesmen signed cooperation agreements there and mentioned at the table that they have got much in common with the host: “problematic neighbours”, for example. Georgia still cannot believe it, thinking this is a late Fool’s Day joke of the eccentric Jews.
