Ilia II in the centre of scandal2013-02-05 22:03
In late January, the Ossetian blogosphere was stirred up by a photo of the Georgian Patriarch with members Moscow Ossetian community Gocha Dzasokhov (former Dzasohashvili), Amirkhan Torchinov and Nugzar Juruli. They visited Ilia II while he was in Moscow. The very fact of the meeting of these people with Georgian Patriarch, who blessed the destruction of the Ossetians and the Abkhazians in 90s, caused unambiguously negative reaction. But the scandal that followed is aimed not only to shame the "traitors".
Excited Ossetian "public men" presented an ultimatum to the community chairman Valery Kabolov that if the visitors to the Georgian Patriarch are not excluded from it within five days, there will be created an alternative organization representing the interests of Moscow Ossetian.
Initiator of the "verdict" is the editor of the Ossetian information agency "Osradio" Oleg Kudukhov. Kudukhov skillfully played on jingoism, shifting all the attention of the audience to the personality of Ilia II, since there cannot be two opinions about his reputation in South Ossetia. And a reader has failed to understand the essence of the game. And the essence of the game is simple - Ilia II and Gocha Dzasokhov were used for old Kuduhov's ideas and the team of former President of South Ossetia Eduard Kokoity to remove unfavorable to them chairman Valery Kabolov from Moscow Ossetian community.
Kabolov is a man who was on the side of the people and the people's choice during a severe political crisis in South Ossetia. Everyone remembers that he repeatedly gathered the people into the community and advocated for the fact that the choice of the people must be respected.
Kudukhov has been the right hand of all the presidents of South Ossetia, the master in hacking e-mail and writing provocative materials, as well as the initiator of beatings of journalists in South Ossetia. This is a man who was clearly a supporter of Eduard Kokoity during the election campaign of 2011.
And finally, Gocha Dzasokhov, resident of Georgia of Ossetian origin, prominent businessman, was close to old ruling team in Georgia. He was forced to leave Georgia after the conflict with President Saakashvili. But in Moscow he has appeared needed both in the Ossetian community and in society in general. Soon, those who are now trying to drive Valery Kabolov out of the community, will probably forget about Dzasokhov, since otherwise they would wonder - what, in fact, the Georgian businessman Dzasokhov is doing in the Council of Ossetian community?
