Georgian project of State Terrorism09.06.2011 | 21:09
Georgian representatives have stated at the recent round of Geneva negotiations that Tbilisi might quit the negotiating process if Moscow does not stop "state terrorism". Such a peculiar name was given to the Georgian special services' performance with the detention of "terrorists" who were completing special tasks given either by FSS, or by Main Intelligence Directorate. Thus, the evident masquerade became a new Georgian foreign policy project. A source in the Abkhaz security agencies has told GeorgiaTimes correspondent that Georgia's actions may have very dangerous consequences.
may have very dangerous consequences.
The "occupation" project promoted in the last three years has exhausted its potential. It produced no significant result despite the spent resources. And now a new large-scale action called "terrorism" has been initiated, which is very promising in the opinion of Tbilisi strategists.
The idea is very simple: Russia is to be accused of arranging terrorist acts in the Georgian territory. It looks like the Georgian politicians think that it is easier to convince the international community of it than make the world look on Russia as an occupant.
Let us say that it will take Georgia much pain to achieve this purpose. The project is poorly directed, unprofessionally staged and has got bad actors. Still, Tbilisi's plans mean a lot of problems for both Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
On Monday, June 6, Georgian MFA disseminated a statement where Russia is called a country responsible for the terrorist acts in the territory of Sakartvelo. The next day, Georgian delegation in Geneva threatened to quit the negotiating process if Russia does not stop "organizing" terrorist acts. To make a long story short, official Tbilisi started forming a new political platform for itself, accusing Moscow of terrorism.
The Political Terrorism project was launched a long time ago when a bomb went off near the Labourites' Party office in Tbilisi. But it is clear that the plan has been set going. Three "terrorists" were detained last week; they were going to organize explosions in the territory of Georgia allegedly by agreement with representatives of the Russian special services.
Former high-ranking officer of the Abkhaz security agencies, being well-acquainted with the situation in the Gal region of Abkhazia, helped GeorgiaTimes correspondent to clear out the specific details of the story.
"All these pseudo-terrorist acts are nothing but a child's games. However, that is not as harmless as it seems to be. When Georgians "reveal" another terrorist act, they name the names of definite people on the Abkhaz and Ossetian part who have allegedly taken part in it. Things are easier with the Russian servicemen: if their names are mentioned they might simply be withdrawn and I know it is what they do, in fact. But the situation with the Abkhaz and Ossetians is more difficult. Look at the trump card that falls into the Georgians' hands. They say that an Abkhaz security official recruited people to carry out terrorist acts. And thus, they get a carte blanche in case an operation on catching him is carried out. For instance, they constantly mention Colonel Valmer Butba's name. Everyone knows they have been trying to catch him in Georgia for a long time. Now imagine that he has been kidnapped by their special services. What hell will be raised and what pressure will be brought onto the Georgians on the part of Europeans. They won't be able to hold him in their hands. And now they have got an official pretext: he is suspected of arranging terrorist acts in the Georgian territory. Who will say anything if, say, the Georgians catch him? The same is about the Ossetians whose names have been named yesterday", - says the former officer of the Abkhaz special services.
He asserts that from the technical point of view, the organization of the so-called terrorist acts speaks of the utter unprofessionalism of the Georgian security officers.
"I am surprised at the bad performance of the new generation of the Georgian special officers. In the old times of a war between our special services, we always managed to outplay them. There were professionals. But it looks like students are working there now. Imagine these terrorist acts were really organized by Russian special services. Can you imagine a FSS officer who would report his real name when recruiting a destructor? It turns out that they sent amateurs with bombs to Georgia who can be easily found and in each case these amateurs possess complete information about the paymaster, while in the rest of the world, no one is able to find those who order a terrorist act even if the very act is revealed. Executors know nothing about them. So, no specialist will believe this nonsense", - our source says.
The former Abkhaz security officer gave us some details of the detention of Tamila Benia, a resident of the Gal region who is accused of an attempt to arrange an explosion in the town of Senaki.
