A task for real patriots of Georgia2009-07-01 10:21
The topic of settling relations with Russia has again come to the fore in Georgia. All of a sudden the opposition forces led by competing Levan Gachechiladze and Zurab Nogaideli expressed their wish to have a straightforward talk with Russian politicians. Patriarch of all Georgia Ilia II is solving the same problem using religious connections for that. Restoration of good neighborly relations of two Orthodox nations is the vital task for real patriots of Georgia.
Now, at the time of information wars it's not worth trusting to what media write, United opposition of Georgia leader Levan Gachechiladze thought deciding to make a personal visit to Russia, Abkhazia, South Ossetia and the USA.
"I want to have first-hand knowledge of what Russia, Abkhazia and South Ossetia think about further relations with us", - he stated yesterday. According to him the preparation for the visits has already begun.
He is going to start his trip with the easiest destination - Washington - and it's clear why: he would be an unasked guest which "is worse than a Tartar" in Moscow and more probably in Tskhinval and Sukhum. And as for the USA he was invited there together with other opposition leaders early in June at the time of the meeting with US Deputy Secretary of State Phillip Gordon. Irakli Alasania was quick to answer the call. At that time Gachechiladze was in the middle of bloody showdown with the police. Now the protest actions have subsided for a while and he can afford a number of "important meetings" in the USA.
Speaking about readiness to go to Moscow Gachechiladze is showing true courage. Now, there is nothing he is threatened with in Russia. Simultaneously Georgia's pro-presidential elite has been boiling with resentment over the meeting between Gachechiladze, New Rights leader David Gamkrelidze and Georgia's ex Defense Minister Kakha Targamadze, now an emigrant in Russia. And it's well known that a leader suspected of ties to "the Northern enemy" is almost a "political corpse".
Nevertheless ex Prime Minister Zurab Nogaideli, now leading For Fair Georgia party was not afraid to step on a slippery track. As soon as he comes to power (as if he hadn't been there before) he will "immediately start normalizing relations with Russia". It was stated by his party associates who publicly presented the directions of foreign policy the party advocates.
