Tbilisi to unmask USSR and Georgians in movies2010-09-17 11:37
Georgians gets down to exposing the USSR's aggressive policies without grasping their own history. A series of films on relationships between the Soviet state, Eastern Europe and Afghanistan is in production by the First Channel assisted by the Ministry of Culture and the parliamentary commission for restoration of territorial integrity. The authors draw an analogy with Russia's behavior toward Georgia wishing to get their vision across to the Russian viewer. Still, the documentary series is likely to remain a domestic product.
Georgian Public Broadcaster's First Channel is taking on a series about the USSR's occupation of Finland, Baltic States, Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia and Afghanistan. The project is financed through the Culture Ministry - not the President's Foundation, as some mass media report, the parliamentary commission for restoration of territorial integrity told GeorgiaTimes. The committee highlighted that most historical materials were gathered by the public commission for assessment of historical record. "Films will mainly feature Russia's and the Soviet Empire's aggressive, occupational actions in the territory of Eastern Europe", - the interlocutor of our internet newspaper said.
Recently Shota Malashkhia, head of parliamentary commission told that the series will have 15 parts. Upon completion Georgia will offer them for broadcasting in Russia. "We are interested to have a democratic neighbor condemning similar policies", - the deputy said.
With the advent of Mikheil Saakashvili, Georgia, like Baltic states, labeled itself a victim of the Soviet occupation. After the war in South Ossetia the country started celebrating "Soviet occupation days" building a monument to Georgians who perished in the struggle for free and independent Motherland. The monument is dedicated to junkers holding off Red Army units led by Sergo Ordzhonikidze in 1921 as well as to soldiers who died in 2008 violating international treaties on Mikheil Saakashvili's order.
In 2008, like in 1921, Georgians didn't want to make war since for centuries Russia had been their friend, defender, ally, trade partner but never an enemy except for a few breaking points. The Georgian SSR lived better than others, had more freedom, the Soviet intelligentsia used to come here for refuge from censorship.
