From Tbilisi with a scandal

2011-07-19 13:20

From Tbilisi with a scandal. 19758.jpegSakartvelo authorities are going to turn seventy families of South-Ossetian refugees out of doors. The people who found shelter in Tbilisi must leave the capital and go to the province or, rather, be left to the mercy of fate. They cannot find a job in the places the authorities offered them for living. Refugees are shocked and outraged: how will they feed their families and why has the country, which is calling itself their mother, is treating them like a step-mother?


Georgian authorities have been harping on the horrors brought by the "Russian occupants" to South Ossetia for almost three years. In the opinion of Sakartvelo government, Russia's "barbarous conduct" resulted, among all, in refugees who have abandoned their homes and moved to Georgia.

Well, why does not the government welcome these poor people, take care of them and carry them in arms, softly demonstrating who really loves them to the world and the citizens of SO? But, as is known, Georgian authorities conduct their line of policy with grace and elegance of a bull in a china shop, and the refugees who have come to Tbilisi get only difficulties instead of care and attention.

Ministry for Forcibly Displaced Persons has sent a thundering letter to 70 families of refugees who have to jostle in the capital demanding to vacate the occupied facilities within ten days. They've got enough troubles, for they have to live not in normal houses but in a kindergarten, a religious residential school, in the territory of an infectious hospital and in a former musical school. And now they are ordered to leave this shelter as well. By the way, the letter from the Ministry says that if they refuse to obey they will be ousted with the help of police by the end of the given time.

The people have been living some life in the capital for two years and now the authorities suddenly remembered that these facilities "are not the densely populated places". It is really surprising that Tbilisi Mayor's Office has noticed such an infringement right under its nose at last!

Of course, even the Ministry for Forcibly Displaced Persons is unable to just turn the people out into the street. That is why, it has "made an effort" and built new houses for them - an "alternative living space" in Bakurtsikh, Lagodekhi (Kakheti region), Chkorotsku and Zugdidi (Samegrelo region). Though, it is not quite clear what the expression "alternative living space" means for the people ousted from a kindergarten or an infectious hospital.
