Georgian authorities continue Sisyphus attempts to frustrate Sochi Olympics. Even rigid and peremptory words of Russian president Dmitry Medvedev who directly called Georgia one of the factors that might disturb normal preparations for Sochi Winter Olympics 2014 could not extinguish official Tbilisi's ardor. For Georgian leaders these words served as additional motivation.
At the recent Security Council session the Russian president Dmitry Medvedev tasked Russian special services to create a shield against forces that might try to frustrate or discredit Sochi Olympics. "Forces that might hamper Olympics must be revealed and brought to responsibility if citizens of our country are concerned", - the head of the Russian state emphasized.
Naturally, he did not forget to mention Georgia whose official representatives can't live a day without accusing Sochi Olympics and its organizers of all mortal sins and demand cancellation of the Games. "There are certain problems connected with Georgia, our neighbor. That is why the ministry of foreign affairs, law-enforcement bodies and security structures must do whatever requires special attention", - Medvedev added.
Apparently, Russian leaders are sick and tired of semi-hints. Besides, it's obvious that the president's words were not meant for the country's security structures (well aware what security threats emanate from current Georgian authorities). No, Dmitry Anatolyevich's speech was meant for the Western countries actively supporting Saakashvili regime and turning a blind eye on its aggressive aspirations.
In Tbilisi Medvedev's words were taken with predictable nervousness which is natural: who likes to see one's dark wishes being disclosed? So the answer from Georgian authorities arrived quickly announced by a "duplet" of vice speaker of Georgian parliament Mikheil Machavariani and deputy FM Nino Kalandadze who reminded of numerous "violations" at the time of construction of Olympic facilities and the "ecological hazard" of the coming Olympics.
Machavariani openly reproached Russia for being unworthy of holding such a large-scale event in principle. "Journalists are persecuted and killed in Russia, political opponents are taken to prison without reasons. That is why we repeat for Mr. Medvedev that Russia is not worthy of holding such an event as Olympics", - the parliamentarian stated. He even demonstrated a sort of generosity promising that Georgia has no intention to hamper Olympics "by force or in any other way".
