Georgian soldier buried alive2010-12-15 11:30
Because of Georgian authorities, participant of the 1992-1993 war in Abkhazia Valeri Tediashvili felt like sub-lieutenant Kizhe, only vice versa. The literary character came into being due to an administrative mistake, while Tediashvili due to a similar mistake was gathered to his fathers. Fortunately, he did it just formally, according to the Georgian officials' will. It was their zeal and aspiration to please the top management that turned a citizen in good health into a fallen hero, as it is inscribed on the monument dedicated to the victims of struggle for territorial integrity.
The 50-meter stela towering the Georgian capital was erected on 26 May 2010, right on the Independence Day celebrated in the country. According to the Georgian authorities' idea, the monument is to eternalize the names of all the citizens who gave their lives "in the fight with Russia". This "patriotic" list includes Georgian military school pupils who died in 1918, leaders of the rebellion in 1924 and those who gave their lives in the 1992-1993 Abkhaz war. And of course, it has the names of the Georgian soldiers who took part in attacking Tskhinval in August 2008 and fell victims to the adventure of Saakashvili's regime.
Generally speaking, the country's government tried to represent Russia as a blood-thirsty monster dreaming of killing as many Georgians as possible. It found four thousand people who died in a fight with the vicious northern neighbour.
It looks like other people who gave their lives in confrontations that were really meaningful for Georgia, such as the Great Patriotic War, are not considered to be heroic enough by current authorities to preserve the their memory for descendants. Though, perhaps, deep inside themselves, Tbilisi officials realize that the true patriots who fought the threat of Fascism cannot be put in one row with those who set out to destroy a peaceful city, dizzy with nationalistic dope.
However, the current authorities are going to bring up children according to the example of those soldiers who died in barbaric attacks against Tskhinval and Sukhum, killing Ossetians and Abkhaz. "We must be ready to put on uniform and take up arms if need be. We all must be ready to die in our land, so that our names could be inscribed in the blank spaces on this monument. This is our country's genetic code and this is our historic experience. This is the main guarantee of our future", - President of Georgia declared at the stela opening ceremony.
