Analyzing this case it's very difficult to speak of corruption-free Georgia and Georgia's superb army. Three schoolgirls, all sisters, and their parents David Davitashvili and Galina Oziashvili seek asylum in Russia after the defense ministry's order to leave them homeless despite the court ruling on assignment of a new apartment. The most outrageous fact is that people that move in to replace the father of three children, a veteran of the hostilities, have absolutely nothing to do with the army.
There is one thing to be reported first: there were two families who decided to flee Georgia yesterday. The information about the first one is so scarce that some commentators suspect provocation.
This is an unnamed Georgian priest who crossed the border with South Ossetia. His family remains in Georgia. As Georgian media report, his wife and four children have been detained by Georgia's law-enforcement authorities. However, presently the Georgian Patriarchate has not confirmed disappearance of one of its clergymen, Interfax-religion reports.
The other Georgian family is quite real, and this story sounds shocking to anyone not zombified by current Georgian government's achievements.
Most probably when soldier Davitashvili was at war with separatists for the unity of his country in the 1990s (at least this is how the conflicts with Abkhazians and Ossetians were referred to in Tbilisi) he did not think that Motherland would repay this way. And when David and his wife had three children in Georgia's demographically difficult times, they didn't think the breadwinner would be dismissed from service under so army-loving authorities.
Troubles began a few years ago. A relative of an influential defense official set sights on David Davitashvili's service apartment, as Alexander Shalamberidze, People's Party secretary general who is trying to help the officer's family, told GeorgiaTimes.
The sergeant refused to move out of the apartment voluntarily, so he was made redundant from the Armed Forces. By that time he had already been granted a certificate of a veteran of hostilities. The man who fought against terrorists in Iraq as a member of the international contingent was not going to shrink back before bureaucrats.
Especially since there was no place for him and his family to go to except for a tent in front of the parliament building in Rustaveli street though it would definitely attract the opposition. And David Davitashvili did not want to come forward with political demands. Under Georgian law he, as a veteran, has the right to permanent home in exchange for his service flat.
