Verbal blow from Rustaveli Avenue2009-12-17 15:04
The Georgian parliament adopted a long expected complaint about Russia's actions addressed to the world community. The document was ready a week ago but it was Russian President Dmitry Medvedev who upset the plans hinting at the thaw in relations. However Nauru's recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia revived decisiveness of the Georgian parliamentarians.
PACE disputes have died away, Geneva process is stuck... It's hard to make the world bring up the Georgian issue again. But Georgia's "headache" - its breakaway territories - has not been cured. Tbilisi launches a new verbal offensive on Europe and the USA.
Recently the parliament unanimously adopted a statement calling on the world community to reinforce the political and diplomatic pressure on Russia. Tbilisi can't put up with the fact that Abkhazia and South Ossetia have become as sovereign as Georgia itself. That's why the deputies' statement is full of anxiety over "increased frequency of the unlawful actions from the side of the Russian federation".
What's the idea? Under Georgian notions the deputies condemn Russia for "kidnapping, construction of barbed wire barriers between the occupied territories and the rest of Georgia, deployment of special forces along the administrative border and Russian military vessels in the Abkhazian section of the Georgian territorial waters". As the deputies write this all "is in violation of fundamental principles of international law and the cease-fire agreement as of August 12 2008".
Using Russian terminology and terms of the countries that have already recognized Abkhazia and South Ossetia Georgia is dissatisfied with the border regime in the territory of new republics objecting to Russia's military protection. In the meantime Moscow's support is simply necessary to Georgia's ex autonomies that have been advocating their right to be independent from Georgia for almost 20 year and had to defend themselves from bellicose Georgia. Now Sukhum, South Ossetia and Moscow are parties to bilateral agreements stipulating presence of Russian troops and vessels there.
The statement perfectly shows that Georgian politicians keep believing Russia pretended to recognize Abkhazia and South Ossetia, that things can be played back as if dead people can be brought back to life and one decree from Moscow can help regain trust of Abkhazians and Ossetians.
