Georgian MIA has made a “storm” warning

2010-04-07 00:17

5742.jpegRussia has intruded the Georgian offshore zone, having created a threat. That was the way Tbilisi commented upon the entrance of the Russian cutter from the Abkhazian waters to those being under Georgian control. As we can see, Mikhail Saakashvili's government has already got used to the presence of the foreign ships near the shores of Abkhazia. Still, it has not yet put up with it, for it has attained a response to its note from the International Maritime Organization.


The Georgian Foreign Minister is again starting a dispute about the Russian cutters in the Black Sea. Their presence in the Abkhaz waters is nothing new. However, they were impudent enough as to get into the waters being under Georgia's control, and the Georgian MFA expressed its indignation on the matter.

"The maneuvering of the Russian military cutter near the village of Ganmukhuri represented a true danger, for these were provocative actions", - Deputy Minister Nino Kalandadze stated. Her words meant rather a plane scenario, such as Georgia's military answer to what seemed to be an "intrusion" with accusing Russia of aggression.

Although the official mentioned a threat to the country's safety, she at once specified that she was not expecting any aggression on Russia's part "at present".

Meanwhile, a couple of days before the incident, Washington Times published the opinion expressed by Deputy Head of the Georgian MFA Gigi Bokeira who gave an opposite appraisal of the state of the Russian-Georgian relationship. In his opinion, Russia may launch a war after the terrorist actions in Moscow and Dagestan.

However, such sentences from Bokeria should be no surprise. He was one of the founders of the Freedom Institute, which has been a source of manpower for the "new Georgia", which has been released from its nostalgia about the USSR, as well as from the prejudice about the Orthodox commonness with the Russian people. The entire activity of the organization supported by the Americans is aimed at the "excommunication" of Georgia from Russia.

Bokeria's statements in his interview given to the American periodical were supported by American expert Swant Gomel. He pays attention to the Russian military bases in Abkhazia and South Ossetia, as well as to the acquisition of arms, such as the French Mistral ship. The Georgian politicians and experts have expressed their apprehension on the matter earlier, although one cannot say whether their statements revealed true fear or rather a desire to represent Russia as an aggressor.
