A campaign against illiteracy for Hans Joerg Haber2009-12-31 18:11
Russia again has to respond to the European Council's rebukes of the alleged non-compliance with the Medvedev-Sarkozy plan. As is known, Head of the EU Monitoring Mission in Georgia Hans Joerg Haber has recently reproached Russia for avoiding the "peaceful treaty" with Tbilisi. However, Russian MFA believes that the veteran of the German diplomacy should first of all remember the guarantees of the non-use of force on the part of Georgia given by Brussels instead of public representation of the false facts.
As is known, after the OSCE and UN missions were withdrawn from the South Caucasus, the European Union has been providing the international presence in the unquiet region, or, to be more precise, only in Georgia.
However, it looks like there is not enough space for the EU mission in the republic: the European diplomats have more than once stated the desire to expand the field of the missioners' activity at the cost of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
Up to a certain time, Sukhum and Tskhinval did not have anything against the western observers. At the very least, the OSCE mission in South Ossetia turned out to be absolutely helpless; it produced no reaction to the bringing of the Georgian army to the republic last August. However, having allowed bloodshed, the western organizations with beautiful abbreviations went on supporting the "territorial integrity" of Georgia which ceased existence after Russia's recognition of the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
The policy of non-recognition of the "separatist regions", as Europe calls the new subjects of the international law in the South Caucasus, is still maintained. Naturally, considering such attitude to their long-awaited independence, neither Sukhum, nor Tskhinval agrees to let the observers into their territory. Brussels keeps complaining about Moscow's alleged non-compliance with the Medvedev-Sarkozy plan, saying that Russia is increasing its military presence in Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Of course, the West does not want to consider any agreements on friendship, cooperation and mutual assistance between Russia and the young republics.
Europe's last reproach was the recent statement made by Head of the EU Monitoring Mission in Georgia Hans Joerg Haber that the Russian party does not meet the conditions of the "peaceful agreement" made with Georgia after the last August military conflict.
