Saakashvili trained Chechen militants?2013-04-05 16:33
Last August, the associates of Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili provided a group of Chechens with weapons and promised to send them to Russia for the preparation of the so-called special operation at the border between Russia and Georgia. This was stated by a former emissary of Chechen separatist Akhmed Zakayev.
"The people from the inner circle of Saakashvili brought to Europe a group of Chechens, were engaged in their training, supplied weapons and were to provide safe passage to the territory of Dagestan," Zakayev told the Georgian "First Radio."
According to Zakayev, he knows that the Ombudsman of Georgia Ucha Nanuashvili a few days ago published an annual report accusing members of the former government in military training of the Chechens for the transfer to Dagestan.
In the report Ombudsman, in particular, says about the special operation of the Georgian Interior Ministry and the Defense Ministry in August last year in Lopota Gorge near the Georgian-Russian border. In the course of the operation 11 militants and three Georgian military were killed.
According to Nanuashvili, this group of militants was trained by Georgian instructors in Pankisi Gorge, the Interfax reported. According to the then leadership of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia, Chechen militants infiltrated to Georgia from Dagestan and were destroyed offering armed resistance. The Prosecutor's Office of Georgia is investigating the special operation in Lopota Gorge, but details of the investigation are not reported, the Voice of Russia reported.
On the night of August 29, the Georgian Interior Ministry carried out in the Dagestani part of the Georgian-Russian border a special operation to eliminate militants, who had taken hostage from the locals. All the hostages were released, 11 militants were killed. During the shooting three Special Forces officer were killed, five officers were wounded.
In early September, Georgian Interior Ministry reported that 7 of 11 killed militants was identified. Two of them - Aslan Margoshvili and Bakhaudin Kavtarashvili, according to the department, were citizens of Georgia. Others - from the North Caucasus.
"Five militants are the citizens of the Russian Federation and the North Caucasus. One, Bakhaudin Bagakashvili, was born in Grozny on February 10, 1986, and he had relatives in Pankisi Gorge (eastern Georgia)," noted in the report.
