Russian Ambassador’s visit to Abkhazia2008-12-16 14:12
Semen Grigoryev, ex officer of Transcaucasian department of the Russian Foreign Ministry and now Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of Russia to Abkhazia arrived in Sukhum on December 15. In the afternoon the diplomat awarded a copy of credential to Abkhazia's Foreign Minister Sergey Shamba.
On December 16 a ceremony of awarding the credential to Abkhazia's President Sergey Bagapsh will take place. The following day Russia's ambassador is meeting Prime Minister Alexander Ankvab, Security Council Secretary Stanislav Lakoba, Vice Speaker of Parliament Vyacheslav Tsugba and will participate in the celebration of the 20th anniversary of Abkhazia's People's forum "Solidarity". The visit of the ambassador was accompanied by the Russian Foreign Ministry's statement.
"This event will be an important step towards establishment of full-format inter-state relations between Russia and the new independent states in Transcaucasia, - the diplomatic authority noted. - The creation of Russia's representations in Sukhum and Tskhinval will doubtless contribute to establishment of cooperation between Russia, Abkhazia and South Ossetia in all areas, to formation of its contractual and legal base, interaction for the sake of security and stability in Abkhazia and South Ossetia".
Russian Foreign Ministry's robust pathos has made a gloomy impression on Tbilisi. The mass media began active discussion of the current situation in Galsky district. The site of Abkhazian government in exile quoted the words of the Chairman of Interim Commission for investigation of the August events Paata Davitaya who reported on the situation in Galsky district. Abkhazeti.info writes: "According to him one of these days he was on the bridge over the Inguri and got some disturbing information from the Abkhazians. In particular, as the deputy says, the Russians have additionally put 40 armored trucks in; they are occupying high-mountainous areas, which is a precondition for an expected provocation against Zugdidi".
Georgian war experts have expressed their opinion on the subject too. Some of them have made conclusions that Kremlin is masterminding new plans of full-scale military actions.
In reply Russia's General Staff Chief Nikolay Makarov accused the Georgian mass media of dissemination of provocative information on plans of assault on Georgia that are supposedly being elaborated in Moscow. He spoke about it at the meeting with a military attaché accredited in Russia. "There is no plan of any invasion of Georgia and there has never been one. The information presented to the mass media that Russia is planning military operations next spring has no grounds whatsoever", - Makarov stated.
