Georgia plays mean tricks on Abkhazia
Abkhazia is holding an extraordinary presidential election with more than half of the electorate willing to attend polling stations. Tbilisi observing the events from outside is outraged and helplessness playing mean tricks like hampering international monitors from going to Sukhum. On the other hand, anger made Georgian haters reveal absolute nonsense. Vice president of the Georgian parliament says that Sergey Bagapsh’s death was organized by… the Russian mafia.
Burjanadze: Saakashvili will break his neck
Various countries, even if they are far from the war between the green and the tricoloured flags, are “trying on” the events in Libya. Oppositional leader Nino Burjanadze shared her idea of a parallel between what is going on in North Africa and what is happening in Georgia. She is sure that sooner or later, Sakartvelo will experience the same tragedy as Libya with the only difference that President Saakashvili is no Muammar Gaddafi and won’t fight to the bitter end.
Tbilisians live by their legs
Georgians’ struggle with their authorities acquires curious forms. Meetings and manifestations do not give any effect, especially that the country’s government descends to openly tight methods of breaking them up. Local opposition has to contrive more intricate ways to express its opinion. For instance, the increase of minibus taxi tariffs in Tbilisi may lead to the first “pedestrian revolution” in the world.

Sukhum and Tskhinval: a no-return pact
Georgia is more often called a failed state, and not without reason. After the Soviet Union collapsed Tbilisi never managed to prove to be an independent unit. Sakartvelo’s political fragility did not let it cope with an outburst of ethnic conflicts. The last straw of the metropolis’ unpredictable behavior was the August-2008 war, which fully released the partially recognized republics from under the Georgian oppression.
