Heroes and traitors of today’s Georgia2009-05-25 21:28
The events around the Mukhrovani mutiny would be enough to make up a criminal series, though one would have to give up the hackneyed clichés and traditions for it seems absolutely impossible to make it out who is right and who is guilty, who is playing an honest game and who is playing the fox, who is a hero and who is a traitor in this story, even providing a thorough investigation.
The authorities have brought an official charge of an attempted coup against Koba Otanadze and Levan Amiridze, who have been wounded during a special operation on arresting the Mukhrovani mutiny initiators. This was stated on May, 22 by head of administration of the Georgian MIA Shota Khizanishvili. The day before, during the meeting, the opposition held a moment of silence in memory of colonel Krialashvili killed in the course of the same operation.
At that time, the Georgian MIA disseminated the information that the special operation had been grounded by the received on-line data. According to the authorities' version of events, the suspects for mutiny allegedly tried to hide in South Ossetia. "They were going to leave Tbilisi by minibus and enter the territory occupied by Russia through the village of Tsinagara (Akhalgorski region)", - the statement said. Judging by the statement, one can draw a conclusion that the roots of the Mukhrovani mutiny should anyway be traced in Russia. Otherwise, why would three high-ranking Georgian military men escape to South Ossetia under the shelter of the Russian bayonet?
The authorities seem to have started imposing such version upon the people, though Mikhail Nikolaevitch himself had to deny it twice. At first, he also called the mutiny in Mukhrovani "a Russian provocation" aimed at disrupting the NATO military exercises. However, in a few days, he denied his own words having admitted that he was in no possession of any reliable data on the Kremlin's involvement in the military mutiny. And now, judging by the MIA statement, one can possibly expect another statement containing accusations addressed to the Northern neighbor.
The investigation has not yet attained any verdicts. However, today the version of the rebellious military men being in connection with the Russian special service and the Georgian "mafia bosses", which, according to Mikhail Nikolaevitch, are sponsoring the opposition and, consequently, the mutineers, does not inspire much confidence.
