European Parliament understood Tagliavini in a Georgian manner

2010-05-21 17:19

Now the missions are to settle the issue of the observers' access with the authorities of Sukhum and Tskhinval, which do not recognize these two republics as the subjects of international politics. Thus, there is an endless circle without a way out.


Strasbourg admitted in general that the policy of isolating Abkhazia and South Ossetia is non-productive. However, it did not propose anything except the continuation of the discussions in Geneva in which all the conflict parties are involved. So long as the Georgian country believes that the negotiations have come to a full stop European Parliament has called upon EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton (see photo) "to make every effort in seeking new boosters for the continuation of the negotiations in Geneva in order to stabilize the situation and attain the parties' complete performance of the cease-fire agreements of 2008".

The resolution that was adopted yesterday once again confirmed the "unconditional support of sovereignty, territorial integrity and inviolability of the internationally recognized boundaries of Georgia". The European Parliamentarians are calling upon Russia to respect these boundaries. They advise Georgia to use the facts presented in Tagliavini's report and private claims filed with the International Court of the Hague about the violation of European Human Rights Convention.

The point at issue is the facts of the expulsion of the native Georgian population from several villages in South Ossetia and Kodorskoye Gorge in Abkhazia. In Leningorskiy (Akhalgorskiy) and Tskhinvalskiy regions the villages were set on fire by the Ossetian volunteers and were practically burnt to ashes. As they say in Tskhinval, many of them were used as a platform by the Georgian police that used to abduct and shoot the Ossetians before the war. The residents of the villages provided support to Saakashvili's army during the five-day war, so it is impossible to imagine the return of these people back to South Ossetia. However, Tagliavini characterized this fact as ethnic cleansing, which, in the opinion of the Georgian experts, is a kind of genocide.

There is a special group working in the Georgian parliament which is gathering materials for the accusation of Russia of the genocide of the Georgians since 1990. Chairman of the Parliament Interim Commission for Restoring Georgia's Territorial Integrity Shota Malashkhia has already collected evidence on one hundred facts. The work is going on with the participation of the Georgian Prosecutor's Office.

"In two years when we will have completed the investigation Russia will have to answer for the way it acted in the international courts", - the deputy is cited by News-George.
