A criminal attempt of the year or just the latest rumours?2010-03-10 08:52
One of these days, rumours appeared in the world informational space that a criminal attempt is going to be made against the President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili. According to the unnamed sources, the Russian special services, which are allegedly dissatisfied with the current regime, are said to be the main hunters for the head of the Georgian president. The source of the rumours is so far unknown. However, everybody seems to be used to such kind of "sensations" cooked by Tbilisi.
This is not the first time that the information about the "Russian threat" agaist the life of the current Georgian leader appears in the informational space. For instance, in September 2008, the Latvian journalists reported that Alexander Khapilov, an official of the Russian Embassy in Latvia, allegedly tried to kill Mikhail Saakashvili. The diplomat was said to be engaged in seeking and hiring a person to make an attempt upon the life of the Georgian president. According to the information, the attempt failed because the killers got into a traffic accident on their way to the victim, as the Independent Newspaper reported.
It is also notable that these rumours appeared many years after Khapilov completed his mission in Tbilisi, right at the moment the relationship between Russia and Georgia aggravated. "The point is that someone does not like the work of the Embassy in Russia, which reveals the lies of the official Tbilisi concerning the events in South Ossetia", - the Embassy underlined then. However, Latvia admitted the nonsense of such accusations. Thus, the delegate of Seym Yuri Sokolovskiy underlined the following: "I would not be surprised if the next time the Latvian television showed some of the Russian diplomats eating babies at night". The diplomat also stressed the fact that the statements made by the Latvian press mean the continuation of the informational war, so long as Latvia has been supporting Georgia in the course of the August conflict.
