A NASH turned to be a non-NASH with a Georgian accent2009-04-17 16:13
Georgian media present the so-called "confession" of Alexander Kuznetsov, a NASHI Youth Organization (Russia) member as some kind of trophy in the diplomatic war with Russia. But it is absolutely clear that the naïve fellows who went on a motor rally to Tbilisi cannot be Kremlin "envoys". The Russian president's doctrine does not include interventions in Georgia's internal squabbles.
Today Georgia's Interior Minister detained Alexander Kuznetsov, a Russian citizen that was taking part in Nashi project called "Moscow-Tskhinval-Tbilisi Motor Rally of Friendship". Ten cars left the Russian capital on the evening of April 10. On Sunday, April 12 the car convoy was near the border with South Ossetia. The motor rally participants had blankets decorated with Russian and Georgian national ornaments. "Nashis" wanted to sew this symbol of warmth and friendship into a "Blanket of Peace" in a square of Tbilisi.
It is obvious the idea was mad. Nobody would have let the car convoy into Georgia. And illegal border crossing by Russians - even with the blanket of peace - would have been another occasion for the Georgians to point at Russia's indiscretion. Did the Kremlin politicians need that? Certainly not. Quite recently Russia's president Dmitry Medvedev delivering his speech to the London students was quite explicit saying that the changes in Georgia would take place as a result of democratic processes. Russia has nothing to do with them. Why did Nashi organize the motor rally and a few more actions? "We don't want an unpredictable regime governed by an insane president as a neighbor and believe that resumption of friendly and constructive relations between Georgians and Russians is impossible unless Saakashvili resigns", - Maria Drokova, the movement's commissioner explains their objectives. As the young people said the motor rally was meant to "demonstrate the Russian youth's desire to resume constructive relations between people of Russia and Georgia on a state level". The desire is praiseworthy but the methods of implementation are definitely ill-considered.
The eagerness of Nashi members is understood: when young we do reckless things to be sorry about them afterwards. But look what Alexander Kuznetsov does on his coming to Tbilisi. He gives confessionary evidence to the Georgian police! Is it in line with the behavior of a Russian patriotic organization member? Not at all. Do his border shooting plans look like kidding? Neither. Even Alexander Kuznetsov himself does not look like a Russian. His Caucasian accent is heard from the first "confessionary" words.
The words sound like a text learned by heart. Like soldier Glukhov he will probably have to seek political asylum in Georgia after denouncing his friends.
