America’s non-legitimate choice
The USA become more and more cautious assessing events that take place in Caucasus. Washington was the last to comment on the election of Alexander Ankvab as president of Abkhazia. Naturally, the States consider the elections as non-legitimate repeatedly advising that the Russian Federation pull its troops out of the “occupied enclaves”. Yet, the US administration said so looking back at the European Union (not for the first time). No wonder: the EU is on the point of recognizing independence of the republics from Georgian protectorate.

Tskhinval going into history
It takes official Tbilisi a lot of efforts to make the whole world call Georgia in an English manner, though it has not been a success so far. Any nation’s aspiration towards authentic toponymy is understandable, for it is an integral part of national identification. Tiflis was also properly transformed into Tbilisi once. The government’s desire to implant an alien Anglo-Saxon ethnicon into the Georgians’ mind is welcomed neither in the country, nor abroad.
