Georgia quitted the CIS one year ago2010-08-18 11:34
One year ago Georgia officially quitted the Commonwealth of Independent States - the organisation which included 12 ex-Soviet republics - proua.com.gt-en-newsitem-inside
Opinions of experts differ - whether Georgia suffered from quitting or not.
According to Alexander Karavayev, the deputy director general of the centre for Study of Post-Soviet Space, over time Tbilisi managed to sign agreements with CIS partner countries and shift many relations to the bilateral base.
Sergey Demidenko, the expert of Institute for Strategic Assessments and Analysis, believes that having quitted CIS, Georgia wouldn't be able to reach the previous level of cooperation with the old partners. "The market of Commonwealth is now seriously closing for Georgia in connection with quitting the organisation and absence of ties with Moscow," he said.
