Who is responsible for events in Perevi?

2008-11-11 15:05

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Georgia expressed resentment over the current situation in the Georgian village Perevi. Though nobody knows what exactly has happened.

Georgia's Minister for Reintegration Temur Yakobashvili stated for his part that Russia prepared cleansing this village of Georgians.

"Unfortunately the Russian policy does not change and grows still more ruthless and aggressive, - Yakobashvili declared. - There is a real threat of ethnic cleansing in Perevi village and the international community must prevent it".


1/5/7/57.jpegA straight road from Georgia to Roksky tunnel goes through the frontier village Perevi. This is precisely why the Russian troops did not leave it though de facto it is in the territory of Georgia. Until recently at the entrance to the village there has been the 58th army block post that let only locals pass further. On November 8 Tbilisi informed that the Russians placed the post under control of the South Ossetian troops. "Ossetian armed gangs" also joined them.

As Georgia's Ministry for Foreign Affairs states this increases the risk of confrontation and challenges the security of the local population which may lead to a new wave of opposition. Tbilisi was quick to appeal to OSCE and the EU not to allow new ethnic clearance.

It is interesting that despite of the threat of global massacre nobody was evacuated from Perevi. Tbilisi admits this fact too. All 275 residents remained in the village. Lessons in the local school continue. Though before that people in Georgian villages started packing up things as only Ossetians were mentioned. "Novosti Gruzii" gave the following comment: "It is quiet in the village though people are in a panic".

Then Georgia's news agencies began to mix up the news. In the evening of November 9 they informed of the new crime of the "Russian occupants". Supposedly they did not admit the EU observers who had arrived to make sense of the situation in Perevi village. The same was confirmed by the EU observers who traditionally added that they were concerned. It looks like the 58th army remained in the village.

The situation was cleared up by South Ossetia's President Edward Kokoyty.
