Saakashvili afraid of being hanged2011-10-24 11:32
Mikheil Saakashvili is publicly bleating about Russia again. In interview with Czech TV channel CT24 the Georgian president complained about Moscow's behavior and its role in the life of Abkhazia and South Ossetia repeating trite horror stories about treacherous plans of the Russian army and hoping that the global community would eventually bring the "invaders" to order. He also spoke about personal apprehensions connected with Vladimir Putin's probable return to presidency.
Mikheil Saakashvili stubbornly sticks to the Russian issue. He seems to be unable to stop complaining about Russia's revolting behavior toward small, helpless Georgia. This time "the old song about the main thing» was presented to viewers of CT24 channel (the Czech Republic).
"The Russian Federation believes they have the right to annex territories of a sovereign state. We have 500 thousand forced evictees and refugees, this is 10% of our population, 80% of Abkhazia's population and almost 100% of South Ossetia's population. 5-7 thousand people are staying in South Ossetia now. Today, Russian soldiers are more numerous than elderly people there, and nobody has freedom of movement. The situation is dramatic", - whined the leader of the country who did his best to drive the situation to a drama. His audience was supposed to imagine gloomy deserts of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, not inhabited by people, filled with Russian military bases and frightened locals who move from base to base in fear. On the whole, this picture is absolutely contrary to real facts.
"Russia is trying to get support from all over the world. Yet, Hugo Chavez is the only one who supports them, - the Georgian leader misinformed the audience. - European parliament calls it illegal military occupation. President Sarkozy compared Russia's occupation with German invasion at the time of WWII in his speech in Tbilisi in front of a 100-thousand audience. This is a powerful statement. The US Congress as well calls this an unlawful military operation".
One might ask: so what, Mishiko? Smooth-talking Nicolas Sarkozy has just sold Mistral ships to the "occupant" and during his visit to Tbilisi he called Georgia to make friends with Russia.
Washington may disapprove too but when it comes to serious problems to be solved with Moscow, Sakartvelo pales into insignificance and has no influence.
