News on construction of a radar station in the vicinity of Tskhinval has caused a new hysterical fit among Georgian leadership. An unnamed official in Georgian government stated in his comment for Telegraph newspaper (Great Britain) that "Moscow is actively preparing for a repeat of the 2008 August". According to him the Russian radar and electronic surveillance station in South Ossetia represents a new threat to Georgia's security underlining that the equipment to be installed at the station will enable Russia to track air movements, as well as intercept mobile and other - both military and civil - communications. Paranoia in Georgian government is not surprising just like its
technical illiteracy. Construction of a Russian military base in South Ossetia is not a secret. Just like deployment of technical facilities in its territory in order to provide security of Russia's southern borders. Construction of a radar station is totally in line with this concept.
It's well worth reminding that a couple of years ago Georgia was deploying radars in direct proximity of the South Ossetian border - it was considered normal then. Georgia does not object to construction of NATO radars in Poland and the Czech Republic to control air space in European Russia. Looks like double standards, doesn't it? However, already today officious Georgia Online site compares the government's official with a UFO: an anonym comments for the English newspaper. Georgian media didn't fail to point out that the surname of Sergey Markov, a Russian deputy starts with "M" accusing him of appropriation of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali district: "Russia is free to do all it wants to do in its territory. In its territory, Mr. Markov. Georgia's Abkhazia and Tskhinvali district are not your territory. They have never been and will never be yours despite your unhealthy fantasies. You are a character, Mr. M".
