Rumors are running from Tbilisi towards the borders of Abkhazia2009-08-19 23:41
Recently, the world has learnt another piece of hot news. Referring to Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs David Jalagonia, the Georgian media reported that the Russian military in the Galski region have allegedly started to erect a wall between Abkhazia and Georgia. Tbilisi was quick enough to call upon the world community to mobilize against the construction of "another Berlin Wall". However, Sukhum has refuted the rumors: the fabricated sensation did not live long.
Nevertheless, while the news was discussed in the information space it managed to play its negative role. The author of the sensation David Jalagonia announced that the construction of the wall confirms the fact that Russia is "taking advantage" of the recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, as Rosbalt reports, and Chairman of the Interim Parliamentary Committee of Georgia for the Restoration of Territorial Integrity Shota Malashkhia supported him: together with the international community, Tbilisi will surely "make it a true wall for Russia's isolation and decay". David Bakradze could not help joining the chorus of Russophobes. Chairman of Parliament delivered a whole speech on the matter. He expressed assurance that the history would deliver its
judgment for the "ideologists of building a new Berlin Wall on the border of Georgia and Abkhazia".
Abkhazian party took the aggressive declamation rather calmly. "There is nothing of the kind happening, no one is building any Berlin Wall, - RIA Novosti is quoting commander of the border guard detachment of the Abkhazian State Security Service Zurab Margania. - What is going on is the process of organizing joint border control by the Russian and Abkhazian border structures". In his opinion, the recent negative information about aggravating the situation in Abkhazia, which is allegedly attributed to the state border control enforcement, is inspired by the Georgian authorities. Margania also reported that joint Russian-Abkhazian border posts have been set up along the whole border perimeter. "There is an established legal border crossing procedure, which must be complied with by all the citizens", - he underlined.
