|Unrealistic ambitions of a non-existent entity|
|July 19, 2011|
Listening to statements of Abkhazian political scientists and public members it is easy to follow a thread of propaganda that Russia imposes on residents of the occupied region of Georgia.
These conversations obligatorily include gratitude for help "that Russia rendered the republic in August 2008". Apparently Abkhazians seriously believe that "Russia defended Abkhazia from possible Georgian invasion". What's more there were no military actions in the direction of Abkhazia those days, apart from bombing of the Kodori Gorge from all possible equipments, including those of Russian navy and air force. Thus all stories about saving Abkhazians in 2008 are fruits of the Russian-Abkhazian imagination. It should be noted that these fantasies dissolve in private conversations. Abkhazians only need them for "outside use".
The Moscow Carnegie Center mentioned views of civil activist Liana Kvarchelia of Abkhazian Center for Humanitarian Programs and another member of the said organization, political scientist from the University of Abkhazia Irakli Khintba. Both complained that it was settlement of the conflict between Russia and Georgia that was discussed at the talks in Geneva and Abkhazia was not mentioned there as a party. I wonder how long ago did these people look in the mirror and admitted the real state of matters to themselves? Naturally, Abkhazian leaders want to be involved in big processes, but one should look into the eyes of reality - Abkhazia as independent legal entity does not exist to the world, except perhaps those who are more likely to belong to the other world.
According to the members of the Abkhazian public, Abkhazians are even more outraged by the fact that Georgia raises the question of de-occupation of its territory. In their view, questions to be discussed are withdrawal of South Ossetia and Abkhazia from isolation. Though it is not clear to who, in their opinion, should raise this question. If is the west the latter does not know such entities. If it is Georgia - Tbilisi puts emphasis exactly where it's needed - on de-occupation and preservation of territorial integrity. If Russia – the latter is engaged in separatist innuendo even without this.
Both experts, as well as the Abkhazian puppet authorities, like their masters in Moscow continue to insist on signing a document renouncing the use of force between Georgia and Abkhazia. Khintba and Kvarchelia believe that such agreement can transfer security issues into another dimension. In simple terms, this document must ensure absolute security guarantees to Abkhazia, after which and already under international guarantees, Abkhazia would walk with firm steps to its real independence. And do you think, gentlemen, that in Tbilisi they do not know what you want to achieve? Not to mention the fact that such agreement would be like signing of such documents by the puppet regime with their district administrations, for example, an agreement with the Gudauta district on non-aggression on the part of Sukhumi. Funny? We do not think so. As this causes serious concerns for sanity of Abkhazian society.
