On War, Caucasus 2009 Exercises and Israeli Insurers2009-07-08 09:18
Speculations on the topic of the Georgian war should subside after the end of the Russian Army exercises and the meeting of the Russian and US leaders. This year the situation on the Georgian border is far from the events of July-August'2008. Single incidents, such as today's gunfire on the Inguri bridge, cannot be considered a sign of general tension in the conflict zone.
The day before the Russian exercises that excited so much the Georgian leaders finished in a dignified way. The maneuvres that were held almost in all regions, republics and provinces of the North Caucasus featured so many soldiers and required so much equipment that they could make short work not only of terrorists, pirates and poachers included into the exercise scenario, but of a mightier aggressor. «The «Caucasus-2009» exercises involved military formations and units of the province as well as the co-operating and subordinated structures: army, Air Force and Antiaircraft Defense, Caspian fleet, Novorossiysk naval base, regional frontier office of the Federal Security Service of Russia in the Southern Federal District, North Caucasian
Regional Headquarters of the Internal Troops of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs and Airborne Troops», - listed the chief of the Information and Public Relations Service of the North Caucasian Regional Headquarters, Lieutenant Colonel Andrey Bobrun.
According to him, just in a week about eight and a half thousand of Russian military men smelled powder. «All the objectives and goals of the exercises have been reached», proudly said Bobrun to the journalists. The exercises have ended without creating any problems with Georgia. Moreover, the meeting of the US and Russian Presidents Barak Obama and Dmitry Medvedev has taken place, and the war predicted by some Georgian and Russian experts has not started.
Just a few days ago the President of the Economic Analysis Institute who is in opposition to the Russian authorities Andrey Illarionov prophesied that the languid position of the American President on Georgia can push Russia to a war. Just as last year the indistinct answer of the then US leader George Bush to the answer of the Russian Premier Vladimir Putin on the situation in South Ossetia on the day of the Beijing Olympic Games opening. And after the «Cucasus-2009» exercises, assured the expert, the tragic scenario of last year following, as he said, the July exercises of «Caucasus-2008» can be repeated.
