One of these days, the Internet space was literally humming with excitement. The reason was the interview with President of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov. Reasonable voices calling to understand what the Chechen leader said or wanted to say were lost in the flow of unfounded accusations addressed at him, until Head of the Reuters agency in Russia and CIS Michael Stott put a stop to this Bacchanalia. However, a bitter taste remained. The more so, as it was mainly the Russian media who heated up passions. Or, perhaps, they only call themselves Russian?
The artificially inflated squabble echoed in Georgia and Ukraine. MFA of Russia's Caucasian neighbor instantly responded with a speech delivered at the briefing by Deputy Head of the Foreign Policy Administration of the country Nino Kalandadze, who criticized the "aggressive statements" made by the president of Chechnya.
The Georgian experts even started making guesses whether Ramzan Kadyrov spoke on his own initiative, for, as is known, he has never made any statements on foreign policy before.
Oleg Panphilov, a Russophobe who has settled in Georgia, could not fail to use the situation. The official Tbilisi used him together with Alla Dudaeva in a broadcasting project aimed for the Russian Caucasus. The First Caucasian Channel is going to start broadcasting in Russia since next year. The analysts believe that this is part of the general informational war intensifying plan deployed against Russia.
Thus, in the opinion of the new Georgian TV channel "star" Oleg Panphilov, "Russia has not got an enemy worse than Georgia, for Georgia is showing the whole of the post-Soviet territory the way one can do without Russia", - Rosbalt reports.
The "sensation" was met in the domain of Mr.Saakshvili's Ukrainian "godfather" in a no less stormy way. Member of the Ukrainian People's Party Board Stephan Khmara called upon the Ukrainian MIA to appeal to the UN Security Council and President of Russia Dmitriy Medvedev with a request of Kadyrov's immediate resignation.
First Deputy Secretary of National Security and Defense Council Vladimir Ogryzko spoke for initiating a criminal case by the Ukrainian law-enforcement authorities against the president of Chechnya for his "aggressive statements" about Ukraine. However, Chairman of Security Service of Ukraine Valentin Nalivaichenko regarded the wave raised in the media as non-deserving the attention of the Council.
Thank God, not everyone joined the hysterics of the irresponsible journalists and periodicals who enjoy heating up the passions. Many were calling upon common sense.
