Georgia to demand USD 40 bn from Russia for Abkhazia and South Ossetia2010-02-17 14:56
Georgia intends too sue Russia for dozens of billions of damage, which, as Tbilisi believes, Moscow inflicted with its actions in Abkhazia and South Ossetia in 1990s and later.gt-en-newsitem-inside
The guilt of Russia of not only August 2008 events, but also provoking Georgian-South Ossetian and Georgian-Abkhazian conflicts after disintegration of the USSR, is planned to be proved in international courts.
The amount of the damage is ordered to be calculated by the parliamentary Commission for Territorial Integrity Restoration, headed by Shota Malashkhia - The Vremya Novostey. He says that a state commission will be established soon to check the calculations and then submit claims and deal with the due intentional organisations.
According to the MP, the tentative sum for damage up to 1998 amounts USD 20 bn. "For the later period, up to nowadays, the additional sum will be no less," Malashkhia said. The sum of compensation includes supposed damage from activities of Russian companies in Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Claims on the loss of property by Georgian refugees will be sent to the European Court for Human Rights.
