Georgia Upset with Putin

October 21, 2006

Georgia’s foreign minister expressed anger over Russia’s portrayal of the Georgia-Russia conflict.

Apparently Georgia has not been pressuring Russia with war plans. Interesting. And why the constant military and other activity at the borders of Abkhazia and Southern Ossetia. For example, what about Saahashvili’s plan to settle Abkhazia? Seems artificial enough.

The Georgian government is concerned over the separatist tendencies in these regions and this is at the core of the conflict. The separatists are in favour of a union with Russia. After all, many of the citizens already hold Russian passports.

And it all comes down to oil and gas which is abundant in the separatist regions. No wonder Georgia is concerned, and so is the US.
