New plans of the Georgian strategists2010-01-28 00:11
Tbilisi started developing the plan of actions in the context of the approved strategy concerning Abkhazia and South Ossetia. According to State Minister of Georgia for Reintegration Temur Yakobashvili, the republic is ready to submit this strategy to European Union for discussion. Despite the humanitarian objectives pursued by the strategy, many political analysts treat Tbilisi's plan of actions in respect of Sukhum and Tskhinval as a soft attempt to bring back the former territorial integrity.
A strategy that involves the relationship of the Georgian authorities with the people inhabiting the territories of Abkhazia and South Ossetia implies such important issues as education and the development of the cultural connections and the public diplomacy. According to the officials' statements, the specified steps are necessary to bring together those nations that live in the republics, both for the safe crossing of the Georgian border with Abkhazia and South Ossetia and for the economical interaction.
Let us remind you that relationship between Tbilisi, Sukhum and Tskhinval until the August events of 2008 were far from ideal. For instance, the first Georgian-South-Ossetian conflict broke out after the October revolution. As is known, the control over the territory of the modern South Ossetia passed from the Transcaucasian commissariat to the Georgian Democratic Republic. Since 1918-1920, three large anti-governmental rebellions took place in South Ossetia; they were held under the slogan of establishing the Soviet power and including the republic into the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic. In summer of 1920, the government of Georgia accused some of the Ossetians of cooperation with the bolshevists and held a punitive operation, which, according to South Ossetia's data, resulted in killing several thousand Ossetians. Later on, the Soviet Georgian government established a South-Ossetian autonomous region. However, the Ossetians' zeal for liberty prevailed. In 1990, the Council of People's Deputies of the autonomy announced the South-Ossetian Soviet Democratic Republic and passed a declaration about the national sovereignty. In a few months, militia units and the Georgian national guards units were brought to Tskhinval. That was how the South-Ossetian war began, which resulted in signing the Dagomys cease-fire agreements between Russia and Georgia. The tense situation continued in XXI century as well. The struggle of South Ossetia for its right of sovereignty resulted in Russia's recognition of its independence after an attack of the Georgian troops against Tskhinval in 2008 and a Russian operation on forcing Georgia to peace.
