European Parliament MP: European politicians changed their opinion about the conflict in Caucasus

2009-08-10 10:33

The opinion of European politicians, experts and many Western journalists about the war in Caucasus changed in a year after the events, said Tatiana Zhdanyuk, the European Parliament MP from Latvia - RIA Novosti.


She participated in the South Ossetia: Five Days of One August conference, held in Brussels and dated to the 1st anniversary of the tragic events in Caucasus.

Politicians, political scientists and journalists just cannot afford staying on the previous positions when incontrovertible evidence on those five days of war were presented, she said.

At the same time she admitted that in the mass conscience of Europeans practically nothing changed. In her view, Saakashvili and official Tbilisi succeeded in publicity and PR, delivered many speeches to Western mass media, and all that information was fixed in the minds of European commoners.

Zhdanyuk believes that a certain consensus on the assessment of Saakashvili's actions in the conflict and on the true instigator of war is settled.
