Lapota: new secret of the Caucasian policy2012-09-14 18:09
Almost two weeks have passed after the events in the Lapota Gorge, but none of reports on the incident have provided opportunity to learn the details of what had happened, on the contrary, they have complicated the situation.
We understood one thing - events in the Lopota Gorge, the Georgian authorities are carefully concealing, may threaten Saakashvili's government, both within the country and abroad. North Caucasian underground is also trying to adhere to Georgia's version of what had happened, without revealing details.
According to the original version, a group of militants crossed the Georgian-Russian border from Dagestan. They allegedly tried to flee to Georgia from Russian security forces. Militants took the locals hostage, depriving them opportunity to call to the police. But in the end the hostages were freed, and militants killed. As a result of the operation, 11 militants, two Georgian security officers and a doctor were killed.
Radical extremists from the "Caucasus Emirate", or rather "Wilayah Dagestan" (militants' name of the Republic of Dagestan) have published an appeal on the Internet, promising to take revenge for the elimination of Dagestani Jamaat (detachment) by the Georgian authorities, wich proves this version.
The Georgian side claims the killed soldiers and the doctor had offered themselves instead of hostages, not specifying the exchange procedure, as well as not explaining why the molitants had agreed to such exchange, since this was not in their best interest.
After a few days it became clear that the Jamaat had consisted mainly of Chechens, many of whom had had refuge in Europe. Two of the killed militants were the Georgians, natives of the Pankisi Gorge. Posts with the threats to Georgia were deleted from websites of Dagestani militants. Later, it became known that not all the militants were killed; some of them have managed to flee from the spot.
Later, there has appeared a version of the involvement of the Georgian authorities to the event, but not as the victim, but as the organizer of the group. But at the last minute they decided to replay the situation. Militants, who already saw themselves on the path of Jihad in the mountains of Chechnya and Dagestan, had been ordered to disarm but refused, and were killed.
