Russian parliamentarian called Ministry of Defense of Georgia a “mortuary”2010-11-05 23:18
Valeriy Seleznev, the member of the State Duma committee on international affairs said messages about detention of a group of "Russian spies" in Georgia are "farce". In his interview to Rusnovosti he reminded of the similar statements of 2006 and claimed the present-day situation to be symptoms of "manic depression, revealing in autumn".gt-en-newsitem-inside
"What for to spy in this mortuary [Ministry of Defense]? All the information the Georgian side claims was passed, was known long ago. Is it unknown who's in office in Georgia and holds tops positions in the military agency? Everyone knows!" he added.
"Speaking seriously, it's a farce, and I fully support position of the Foreign Ministry. We can recall the recent scandal in the USA, when Russian spies were caught. Obviously, Saakashvili decided someone must be caught to second his master," Seleznev believes.
He added the Russian government doesn't have much resource to influence the fate of the detained Russians, but reminded there are international organizations that can be negotiators. "We promose to do everything to let them be released," he added.
The chairman of State Duma committee on international affairs, Konstantin Kosachev, claimed the detained Russians would receive help. "People, who have nothing to do with special forces, but would again be proclaimed enemies of Georgian people, were caught," he underlined.
