Saakashvili appearing as the main Greenpeace member2009-12-18 22:21
Tbilisi is still concerned about the coming 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi. After a number of unsuccessful attempts to organize a boycott of the sports forum in Russia, Georgian leader Mikhail Saakashvili decided to resort to another tactics. The president appeared at the international summit in Copenhagen dedicated to the climate change issues as the main Greenpeace member concerned about the preservation of the Caucasian ecological system, which is allegedly destroyed because of the removal of inert substances from Abkhazia. Still, Saakashvili must have forgotten about his own "little Olympic sins".
No one is any more surprised at Georgia's unflattering comments upon the winter Olympic Games to be held in Sochi. Russia's recognition of the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, as well as Moscow's close cooperation with the young republics makes Tbilisi restless. The Georgian speechmakers go hot and cold by turns: from the seeming "insecurity" of the Russian resort to the seeming concern about ecology.
As is known, this summer Chairman of the Georgian Parliamentary Committee for Foreign Relations Akaki Minashvili suggested that the democratic countries should boycott Sochi, substantiating his position with safety reasons. It is still unclear what threats Minashvili meant. Earthquakes are very rare on the Black Sea shore, which cannot be said about Georgia. Moreover, Sochi can surely boast of its cleanness and steady health and disease control situation, unlike, for instance, the ancient capital of the Colchis kingdom Kutaisi, which mayor has recently handed a resignation criticized by Saakashvili for the unsatisfactory sanitary situation in the city.
Anyway, Minashvili represented Russian Sochi as the citadel of evil, having promised to complain to the international organizations. These organizations are currently appealed to by the president of Georgia as well, who says that the harmful climate changes in the South Caucasus bring more floods, landfalls and forest fires. In Saakashvili's opinion, the reason is the removal of inert substances from Abkhazia needed to construct the facilities for the 2014 Olympic Games.
