Will there be a limit to the Georgian claims?

2009-08-28 22:23

3795.jpegGeorgia keeps "verbally attacking" Russia, criticizing Moscow's actions in all aspects: from politics to sports, economics and ecology. Georgia continued pinpricking Russia when President of Abkhazia Sergey Bagapsh made a decision to lease out the railway to the Russian Railways company, so long as the republic has got neither specialists, nor international codes. In addition, Georgia has "fined" a number of Russian TV channels for the "unlicensed" broadcasting in Abkhazia and South Ossetia. What kind of claims is Tbilisi going to lay next time?


There is a feeling that the Georgian foreign administration has drawn up the form of a special statement saying that Russia's actions "contradict the norms of international law and infringe Georgian sovereignty recognized by the international community, as well as the principles of the "territorial integrity" and inviolability of borders". They just insert the proper words in the blank fields, whether it is the construction of the Dzuarikau-Tskhinval gas pipeline in South Ossetia or the activity of Rosneft in Abkhazia. Tbilisi has got no problems in finding a reason for another verbal attack, which is made almost every day.

One of the latest attacks was made by President of Abkhazia Sergrey Bagapsh who said that soon, the young republic may get credit from the Russian Railways company and is going to use this money to restore the railroad system that was damaged in the nineties. The Abkhazian leader has grounded his decision with the fact that Sukhum has got no proper specialists, as well as international codes for the goods export. Naturally, no one spoke of selling the railway; it is going to be leased out for three or four years, as the News Time reported.

However, Tbilisi regarded these actions as "another stage of building military infrastructure and preparing new military aggression against Georgia", - RIA Novosti informs. However, it remains unclear in what way a purely humanitarian project can be related to military infrastructure or, what is more, to any kind of "aggression". Besides, the Georgian party is referring to the notorious Occupied Territories Law, which unambiguously prevents any states, individuals and legal entities from performing any kind of economic activities in Abkhazia. This is the point when Tbilisi traditionally discharges its "righteous anger" upon Moscow, which is, by the way, legally cooperating with Sukhum and Tskhinval in the context of the international law as with the international community units, which they became when Russia recognized their sovereignty.
