Georgian Snipers Hunting Russian Journalists
VLADIVOSTOK. 11 August. VOSTOK-MEDIA. South Ossetia continued to deliver truthful information. In the battle area worked Russian journalists. Then Georgian military personnel gained an order to liquidate unnecessary witnesses. They started firing at Russian journalists and Georgian snipers started hunting correspondents and camera operators. By now 4 journalists are wounded.
In Tbilisi other journalists are working. But Russians are not allowed to broadcast their news to Moscow while Western colleagues have a go. For three days Tbilisi is so used to broadcast in English that even now they broadcast does not sound Georgian.
Another front of information war has opened in Moscow. In Russian capital a few speeches were told in English because some things are better be delivered without interpreters. Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sergey Lavrov, was interviewed by BBC. Minister of Foreign Affairs Deputy Grigoriy Karasin held a meeting with Western Mass Media. He declared: “Georgia should move back to the line of 1992 according to Dagomisk treaties. Treaty of non-violence should be signed. Talks can not happen without a non-violence treaty”.
Sergey Lavrov on August, 8 discussed the situation in South Ossetia with French Minister of Foreign Affairs Bernar Kushnar, German MFA Frank-Volter Steinmaier, Supreme Spokesman on general external politics of European Union, Havier Solana, Finlandian MFA Alexander Stubb and Condoleezza Rice. As Information and Publishing Department of RF State Secretary of USA noticed Georgian administration saying about regulation operation, for long time has been preparing the use of force against ossetinian people. Now it has become evident that Rice knew about planning operation. Also Western powers do not accentuate a fact that in South Ossetia 2000 people were killed. Last time America witnessed such violence on September, 11 2001. And Russia was the first one to say condolences to American people. Washington is not going to say any condolences.
There is another eloquent example of double standards. What happened with former Yugoslavia when western powers accused Serbians in genocide? American and Nato Air Forces bombed all movable and immovable on the Serbian territory: military divisions, cities, bridges, humanitarian column and Chinese Embassy. Now South Ossetia. Less than a day Georgian forces needed to raze to the ground Tskhinvali and townships in the vicinity. Georgian military command could not but know that in those townships and cities lived thousands of civilians.
Those who commanded in Yugoslavia were accused and thrown to prison. Now it is time for thoroughgoing judges to pay attention to those who are sitting in Tbilisi. “International Tribunal about South Ossetia needs to be launched. All facts, all names, all victims must be told out and accused”, - said on Sunday Grigoriy Karasin.
It is unlikely that Western powers will judge President of Georgia. Then the accused will have to tell everything and it is evident all truth will be told.
