Russian servicemen are again "exposed"2009-01-14 12:07
On January 11 several Georgian mass media reported that the Russian troops had begun forcing out ethnic Georgians from villages of lower part of Galsky district. Local residents are referred to as the source.
According to GHN agency (Tbilisi) the militaries "seize homes and property of the Georgians". It is reported that around one thousand people have been evicted.
However none of the accusatory publications is supported by the real facts, names, addresses, dates etc. There is only a remark that most part of the anonymous outcasts refuse to leave Abkhazia staying now at their neighbors'. They must be expecting that the "military operation" will soon be over after intervention of the Georgian authorities and international observers whom these "forced migrants" appealed to (both).
Later, that same evening the press presented reaction of a few politicians that have no doubt on authenticity of the information about these actions. In a live Rustavi-2 TV broadcast the head of Abkhazia's "legitimate" government Malkhaz Akishbaya stated the "subunits of the Russian occupational forces deployed in Abkhazia are carrying out a targeted policy of cleaning the region of the local population" and called on the international community to intensify pressure on Moscow to bring this process to end.
The subject was developed by Parliament's deputy Paata Davitaya. He is quoted by "Rosbalt": "They (the Russian militaries) are persecuting both Georgians in Gali and Abkhazians in Ochamchyra arousing great discontent. The situation inside Abkhazia is very tense". The conclusion was made by the chairman of the interim parliamentary committee on restoration of Georgia's territorial integrity Shota Malakshiya on the same site: "The international agreement established in Europe, the so-called Sarkozy document must be adhered to. Subject to it the occupants must not be located in Georgia and the format must be modified according to what is stipulated in the OSCE and EU resolutions".
Sukhum showed almost no reaction to these speeches. Authorized representative of President of Abkhazia in Galsky district Ruslan Kishmaria called the fuss another fabrication.
"Georgian media disseminate fabricated, designedly false reports in order to discredit Russian servicemen and the Abkhazian authorities", - he stated to Interfax. - Their objective is quite clear - they are trying in every possible way to make the EU observers enter Abkhazia".
