Kremlin Agreement Arouses Speculation on ‘United Ossetia’

Author: By Zaza Jgharkava

Having signed an agreement one of Georgia’s occupied regions, Abkhazia, the Kremlin is setting its sights on another. According to the website of the Russian Foreign Ministry, an integration agreement with the occupied Tskhinvali region, which claims to protect the latter’s military security, has been drawn up. The announcement was preceded by a threat from the ex-president of Ossetian separatists Eduard Kokoity about withdrawing the Truso and Kazbegi regions from the Georgian jurisdiction and establishing a United Ossetia.

In an interview with the newspaper “Izvestiya,” the Ambassador of South Ossetia to Abkhazia Oleg Botsiev says plans are in place to create a powerful bloc to oppose NATO. However, Abkhazia and South Ossetia could not join the military-political alliance [Organization for Collective Security Agreement] as members of the organization do not recognize them as independent states. “It is clear that, first of all, the military component of the organization will be tackled. Agreement on the economic and information security of our region will be signed later,” Botsiev said. “At this stage we are negotiating with the South Ossetian side to join our agreement. We believe that the trilateral agreement will be a sound reaction to the steps of NATO and its partner Georgia,” Abkhazia’s vice-president Vitali Gabnia said.

Tbilisi Rally against Russian Annexation Puts GD under Pressure

Author: By Zviad Adzinbaia

Around 30,000 people from across the country gathered in Tbilisi on November 15 to protest against Russia’s attempts to annex the breakaway region of Abkhazia, which has been under the of Russian forces since 1993.

The main subject of demonstration was the Government’s perceived silence regarding the recently revealed signing of an Alliance and Integration document between the Abkhaz marionette government and Russia, another step towards formal annexation of the coastal territory.

Citizens carried Georgian, US and European flags as well as placards with slogans such as “stop Putin” or “Russia is Georgia’s enemy”, expressing their desire for Georgia to join the European family and rid itself of Russian influence.

Ukrainian flags were also carried to show solidarity with Kyiv, following Russia’s annexation of Crimea in March this year. According to the main organizers of the event, UNM, Georgia and Ukraine were tightly connected due to the Russian occupations of their respective lands.

“Russia uses the same scenario which was previously experienced in Abkhazia when the occupation occurred in 1993, as this Soviet country wants to rebuild the empire,” said Mikheil Saakashvili, UNM leader and former President of Georgia.
