Georgian conspiracy theory: myth or reality?2009-08-21 19:37
Today the world news agencies report on preparation for subversions in Abkhazia and South Ossetia going on in Vaziani training field in Georgia. Some media inform about the Georgian special services' intention to discredit Russian military contingent stationed in new republics and sabotage stability in the Caucasus. Moscow, Tskhinval, Sukhum and Tbilisi have offered no official reaction yet. Probably there'll be no reaction at all.
At first sensational news on possible provocations in South Caucasus turned up in Internet with no reference to authorship, Rossyiskaya Gazeta writes. Allegedly, military uniform with Russian, South Ossetian and Abkhazian marks and straps and Border Service of Russia's FSB signs was brought to Vaziani. The task force is having standard combat training and learns to speak pure Russian. Moreover, according to some information future Georgian raiders are trained by philologists and US instructors who recently arrived in Georgia to prepare a battalion of the republican armed forces to be sent as part of the international peacekeeping contingent to Afghanistan.
Nonetheless, the information on possible anti-Russian provocations in the Caucasus in a number of publications was confirmed in the Abkhaz Defense authority. "We can surely believe that Georgian side plans to send subversive groups to Abkhazia and South Ossetia disguised in uniform of these countries and Russian troops to conduct military actions, - the media report with reference to the unnamed source in the republican Defense Ministry. - It is not impossible that the Georgian task force wearing Russian uniform will carry out punitive actions conferring responsibility on Russia". According to the source in this case video and photo materials on "atrocities of Russian occupants" will be presented to the world community to justify actions of the Georgian army against Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
Destabilization in the Caucasus has been a hot issue recently. There is tension in Dagestan, Ingushetia and Chechnya even without information on possible subversions near the Georgian borders. Some experts rather categorically state a large-scale terrorist war inspired outside the region is going on against Russia in the Caucasus.
