A military mutiny near Tbilisi. Or a staging by MIA?

2009-05-05 19:12

2608.jpegThe military personnel of the armored cavalry battalion have excited a mutiny at a military base in Mukhrovani. This was reported on May, 5 by Minister of Defense of Georgia David Sikharulidze. Meanwhile, the Georgian MIA has circulated a video record giving evidence that the mutiny was allegedly arranged with certain assistance from Russia.


According to the latest reports, the military police has sealed off the military base in Mukhrovani, as RIA Novosti reports, referring to Chief of Staff of the Georgian MIA Shota Khizanishvili. "There are no MIA representatives on site; the whole perimeter is controlled by military police", - Khizanishvili said. The military base is located 30 kilometers of Tbilisi. The journalists are kept out of the scene, they are a few kilometers away from the base.

So, what is the point? According to the report of Minister of Defense David Sikharulidze broadcasted by Rustavi-2, the armored cavalry battalion excited a mutiny. At the same time, an hour before the Georgian MIA reported the discovery of the military plot, Mamuka Gorgishvili, the battalion chief, made a statement that the servicemen were not going to interfere in the aggravated political situation in the country, as Interfax informed. According to Gorgishvili, one cannot remain calm while watching the country ruin and the confrontation going on; however, there will be no aggressive actions on the part of our armored unit. We are confined to barracks and have no intention to leave the base".

These words directly contradict the accusations that poured an hour later upon the servicemen of the armored cavalry battalion in Mukhrovani. For example, Chief of Analytical Service of the Georgian MIA Shota Utiashvili reported to the journalists in Tbilisi that the Georgian Ministry of Internal Affairs had discovered a plot arranged by servicemen that are directly connected with Russia.

"A military mutiny was being prepared in various military units of Georgia. According to our information, it was organized by high-ranking military officers. It is obvious that the plan was organized from Russia and was aimed at frustrating NATO military exercises in Georgia", - he said.

MIA also reported the detention of Gia Gvaladze, who was in charge of the Alta Special Detachment in the 90s. Koba Otaradze, who was earlier involved in disorders at the Mukhrovani military base, is on the wanted list. The investigation is also considering the participation of two more persons in arranging the mutiny.
