Sacrifice at the altar of “Russian threat”
Austere Themis of Georgia has severely punished the “terrorists” allegedly involved in a series of last year’s explosions in Tbilisi. Eugeny Borisov, a mythical major of the Russian army, as it was expected, was sentenced in absentia, and his imaginary “accomplices” from Abkhazia were given real prison terms from 2 to 30 years. The demonstrative beating organized by the country authorities looks more like a show – what else will Mikheil Saakashvili invent to remind of the “Russian threat”?
Byelorussia showed the door to Sakartvelo
Georgia continues to assure its citizens that their country is the best of all the states. However Georgians escape the “lighthouse of democracy” at a breakneck speed with enviable periodicity, surfeited with liberal reforms and unlimited liberties. They hold on for the European Union or the Russian Federation through Poland and Byelorussia. However, most often the sharp-sighted Byelorussian border guards nip such unpatriotic efforts in the bud. During the last two weeks some other illegal immigrants were arrested twice.
Georgia defeats Gruzia
Destruction of everything that is connected with Russia has always been a foundation of the current regime in Georgia. Memories of common history make official Tbilisi very sad. Local leaders invent most absurd things in order to get rid of “Russian traces” in the territory of the country. It is not important whether it’s monuments of the past, names of streets or the state itself. That is why the idea to rename Gruzia into Georgia is so popular among the country’s rulers.
Kalandadze sings a false note
Due to the efforts of Sakartvelo’s authorities the entire world is now aware of Georgia’s willingness to sit at negotiation table with Russia. Yet, the left hand of Georgian government does not know what the right hand does. Deputy FM of Georgia Nino Kalandadze stated that she sees no sense in Geneva discussions. Nonetheless, she is ready to put up with the UN’s insistence on a dialogue with Russia.

Georgian politics is paid off
Yesterday Courtyard Marriott Hotel (Tbilisi) hosted presentation of a report by Open Society – Georgia foundation and the local branch of Transparency International on sources party funding in the Transcaucasian republic. Despite difficulties to gather information, the authors of the report have come to a unanimous conclusion: like all spheres of country’s life, all financial resources are controlled by one political force – Mikheil Saakashvili’s United National Movement.
Shevardnadze defends people from president
The Georgian governors have got used to demonstrating their petty tyranny and incompetence constantly and everywhere. And they do. But there are hardly any other areas where these qualities of the Tbilisi politicos appear to be more bright and vivid than participation in the NATO operation in Afghanistan. While Washington, the main sponsor of Saakashvili’s regime, withdraws its troops from the ruined country, the puppet despot, on the contrary, plans to increase the contingent. Last week the Labourists condemned the cannibalistic intentions of Mishiko. Yesterday Eduard Shevardnadze raised his voice in defense of his fellow citizens dying in Central Asia.
