Grigol Vashadze’s Russian déjà-vu

Grigol Vashadze’s Russian déjà-vu. 22671.jpegThe Georgian ministry of foreign affairs is infuriated over the visit of RF Federation Council chairperson Valentina Matviyenko to Abkhazia to attend the inauguration of Alexander Ankvab, new president of the republic. The fact made Sakartvelo's foreign office come up with a portion of trite statements. Tbilisi does not seem to be ill at ease digging a grave to its international reputation.


Tbilisi's reaction to RF Federation Council chairperson Valentina Matviyenko's visit to Abkhazia was totally predictable and, as Internet agencies write, "slightly more than completely" dull. Nerveless indignation Grigol Vashadze's ministry expressed had no effect on the global community.

It is no secret that the so-called "official visits" to the occupied territories of sovereign states of high-ranking Russian officials are nothing more than attempts to confer an illusion of legitimacy upon the regimes which the Russian government itself has created in Georgia's occupied territories. Such "official visits" to the regions of Abkhazia or Tskhinvali obviously change nothing for these occupation regimes. To date, Russian efforts have resulted in turning Georgia's occupied regions into an enormous military base", - the statement goes. It is also added that Russia again violates the August 12 2008 ceasefire treaty".

Most probably, it's common knowledge that despite political delays, two republics have long been living their own life independently of Tbilisi. This is Georgia that confers illusions trying to create a virtual image of a "united and indivisible state".

As for the text: it's always the same no matter who comes on a visit - Valentina Matviyenko, Anatoly Serdyukov or Vladimir Putin. Here is an extract of the statement on Russian defense minister's visit to Sukhum: The so-called visit of the head of Russia's ministry of defense to the territory of presently occupied Abkhazia unambigiously confirms that Russia has never planned to comply with international commitements including the August 12 2008 ceasefire treaty". A visit of the Russian FM was called "another vain attempt to legitimize a violent territorial change in the sovereign state as well as validity of occupational regimes".
