Russia’s Foreign Ministry warns Saakashvili’s patrons2009-04-03 17:04
Mikheil Saakashvili has not learned his lesson after the events of last August and is masterminding a new invasion. This is an opinion of Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Andrey Nesterenko expressed on April 2.
"Against the background of aggressiveness and provocations of Georgian militaries in zones adjacent to Abkhazia and South Ossetia Mr. Saakashvili's speeches confirm the obvious fact: Tbilisi is masterminding a revenge scheme, - Nesterenko is quoted on RIA Novosti.
Strictly speaking this is all about the aggressive words Saakashvili recently pronounced. As Interfax reports at first during the meeting with James Cartwright, Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Georgian president spoke about support of the national army: "In conditions when 20% of our territories are occupied, in conditions of high risks, continuous provocations and a generally complicated situation in the region, Georgia will keep establishing modern, much more powerful armed forces increasing their personnel, the number of soldiers and most importantly providing for training upgrade".
At the opening ceremony of the Interior Minister new building Saakashvili was even less diplomatic: "Our struggle is underway, and it will end with complete deoccupation of Georgia, liberation of our territories and ousting the last enemy soldier, - Our Abkhazia quotes. - I am absolutely convinced of that".
Naturally Moscow for whom these words were meant, did not keep silent. Nesterenko's remarks are addressed not to the Georgian president with whom Russian leaders do not want to communicate at all following his August adventure, but to his patrons. "As for the plans concerning foreign assistance to Tbilisi in restoration of its military potential, they can amount to nothing but the encouragement of the aggressor", - Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesman stated. - The tragic experience has shown that arming current Georgian leaders is extremely dangerous to neighboring nations, the whole region and to Georgia". Nesterenko called on the USA and Ukraine to pay attention to this especially in the light of aggressiveness and provocations of the Georgian militaries on the border with new republics.
It is really astonishing how Saakashvili who is within a hair of complete political failure does not calm down constantly referring to the return of "lost territories" lost through his fault. Certainly the president's words have no direct implications about repetition of August 2008. Probably he has a different political scenario on his mind...
