Georgia sets eyes on fruits from another’s garden2010-10-08 20:22
Grigol Vashadze's ministry comes up with a new statement on Georgian property stolen by Russian authorities. As reported, Vladimir Putin encroaches on another's possessions ordering subordinate authorities to arrange privileged long-term lease on three facilities with Abkhaz leaders. Georgian ministry of foreign affairs roars: "How?! This all is ours" adding mentally: "We would give you everything you want at a reasonable price" - because Georgia loves Russian capital.
Minister Grigol Vashadze renounced Russian citizenship, but the habit of regular contacts with Russian diplomats is still strong. The countries have no official relations while epistolary communication goes ahead. Now this vast correspondence contains a new statement by Georgian ministry of foreign affairs on attempts of Russian state officials to obtain ownership over three dainty facilities in Abkhazia.
There is a thick black line dividing the Black Sea republic from Georgia on Russian maps. Tbilisi, however, keeps referring to this territory and its property as to a colony.
"Who eats out of my bowl? Who sits down on my chair? Who sleeps in by bed" - is the implication of all statements made by the Georgian ministry of foreign affairs.
Now, these "bowl, chair and bed" are Gagra, Myussera (see photo) and Pitsunda real estate complexes. The Russian government would like to use them for "state events involving persons subject to state protection", as well as for recreation. On the whole, this will be both an embassy and a sea resort for diplomats.
Vladimir Putin assigned formalization of a related agreement with Sukhum to the Federal Security Guard Service and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Russia would like to lease out these three complexes of movable and real property in Gagra, Gudauta and Pitsunda for the term of 49 years at one ruble per each site per year. Moscow also wants to be given the right to carry out major construction works on the territory of the rented property.
As Mikhail Ladaria, deputy head of Abkhazia's state committee for property and privatization told GeorgiaTimes the Russian and Abkhaz governments have not discussed that yet. The mansions are former dachas of Soviet leaders Nikita Khruschev and Mikhail Gorbachev considered state property not subject to privatization. As for Russian officials, they do stay there when they come on visits.
