Abkhazia Built Into Russia
NATO responded yesterday to deployment of Russias railway troops in Georgias breakaway Abkhazia, warning that the allies would hardly like any of the recent steps of Moscow and those steps would hardly improve the relations of Georgia and Russia. Meanwhile in Tbilisi, they are deliberating on how to oppose the progressing rapprochement of Russia and Abkhazia and even give the exact date when Russia recognizes the republic.
Georgias authorities are yet to decide on exact methods to oppose Russias activities in unrecognized Abkhazia. To begin with, Georgias Deputy Foreign Minister Grigol Vashadze handed over to Russias Ambassador to Georgia Vyacheslav Kovalenko a protest note shaped in response to deployment of Russias railway troops in Abkhazia, which Georgia called an act of aggression.

In Georgia, they are even giving the date when Russia intends to recognize Abkhazia. It will happen September 27, when Abkhazia celebrates the Independence Day, Chairman of the exiled Supreme Council of Abkhazia Temur Mzhavia told Georgias reporters.

Its unclear from where such fabrications originate, they have nothing to do with reality, Kovalenko renounced Mzhavias supposition. In general, Russias ambassador was in surprisingly peaceful mood after the tough talk in Georgias Foreign Ministry. I dont understand the fuss around this matter, Kovalenko commented on deployment of Russias railway troops in Abkhazia. Any humanitarian action is aimed at improving the live of the people in the region. Once the people live better, their mood is less militant, the official explained.

But this conciliatory statement of Russias ambassador didnt suffice for easing agitation in Tbilisi. Georgias President Mikhail Saakashvili called an extraordinary meeting of Security Council yesterday to forge the response to Russia.
