Are Georgians to blame for everything?

2008-10-30 09:54

Shots are heard no more but confrontation between Russia and Georgia does not cease. Diplomats and PR managers are again on the offensive. And the latter are especially good at advocating the principle that "end justifies means" as it is the basis of PR technologies. Probably that is why anti-Russian campaign in Georgian mass media and anti-Georgian propaganda in Russia are at times close to absurd.


So after August Georgia declared "war" to Russian goods and decided to turn down sausages, sweets, medicines and even beer. In Russia as the survey by the All-Russia Center for Public Opinion Studies states every second citizen grew more suspicious towards carelessly cheerful natives of Georgia, and only 40% of the respondents did not change their attitude to them. "There" on local TV the counterparty is called an "aggressor, occupant and imperialist". And lately the Russian press has published this: "Georgian patriots are masterminding terrorist attacks in the territory of Russia". It's evident that such outshoots can hardly contribute to the development of relationships or improvement of mutual understanding giving another reason for confrontation and

mutual accusations. In order not to arouse national agitation the latest message made MVD of Russia state that there were no grounds for panic. Tbilisi gave an immediate reaction to replicated accusations of tendency to terrorism. As "Resonance" paper writes, Chairman of the Parliament David Bakradze called this mass media attack "a dangerous speculation". And then he amplified the accusatory tone which is typical of him by reminding that "incrimination" of terrorism had become a reason to start military actions in Chechnya. This story gathered like a snowball. Thus Irakly Sesyashvili, an expert for security issues, made a statement that Russia was trying to repackage its image for the international community. And there is no concept of terrorism in Georgian history, - he added. As he says in the 90s there was an organization called "Algetsky wolves" who took responsibility for a series of minor terrorist acts but then the track of these criminals was lost.
