New adventures of Georgians in Ukraine2010-01-18 23:01
The notorious story involving Georgian monitors in Ukraine is gathering pace. Despite the CEC's denial, a 400-member delegation from Tbilisi came to the republic nevertheless. The so-called "monitors" were a poor show. Judging by preliminary results of the voting, the remainder of the Georgian guests will have a second chance to see others, and make a good show.
Ukraine was reluctant to see a large delegation of 2,000 Georgian monitors. Local CEC denied registration turning down a compromise option of a reduced group that correctly filled in required application forms (400 persons). According to the experts it is all Tbilisi's fault: the documents were submitted on the last day of registration.
Bewilderment of the Georgian representatives supported by Yulia Timoshenko and activists from her bloc resulted in a claim to the Court of Kiev forcing the election commission to reconsider registration of Georgian monitors. Reconsideration, however, has been of no effect to Tbilisi. The monitors were denied.
Nonetheless, a reduced Georgian delegation came to Ukraine. It's a big question whether there were professional monitors in it. The point is that representatives of Ukraine's Party of Regions in the CEC stated that over a half of the people referred to as international monitors from Georgia have nothing to do with the work judging by personal data submitted to the commission, they have no residential registration or any definite residence and have no experience of participating in campaigns as international monitors.
A sensation from Mikheil Brodsky, a candidate for the post of president of Ukraine, added more fuel to pre-election fire. He reported that the members of the large Georgian delegation are militants allegedly ready to help current PM Yulia Timoshenko in case of her fiasco. Brodsky claims to have got hold of a telephone talk featuring a woman whose voice resembles the voice of Timoshenko speaking to a man whose voice sounds like Saakashvili's. Allegedly they are discussing breakdown of election in Ukraine with the help of 3,000 militants from Georgia that are supposed to come to independent Ukraine as international monitors.
