Communist Party leader, Gennady Zyuganov
opposes the conclusion of the Russian peacekeeper from a zone of the
Georgian-Abkhaz conflict. As inform Georgian sources from Moscow, the head of
the so-called national-patriotic union of Russia and Russia's
Communist Party leader
declared it, while speaking at a press conference in the Russian capital.
«in any case» should not withdraw peacekeepers from a zone of the
Georgian-Abkhaz conflict, otherwise is possible to expect
«immediate beginning of war», and considers Zyuganov. The leader
of the Russian communists has regarded events in Georgia as «personal tragedy»
as, working in CC of the CPSU, he for five years supervised the Caucasian
republics. «Now Georgia was disorganized, from republic has left about 2
million people, war will not solve the problems», - Gennady Zyuganov said.
leader, Ardzinba also adheres to the same point of view. Abkhazian leader calls
to prolong the mandate of deployed in a zone of the Georgian-Abkhaz conflict of
the so-called peacekeeping forces of the CIS, whose basis is composed of Russian
occupational armies. In administration of the Abkhaz leader informed, that on
Thursday, Vladislav Ardzinba sent the letter to the chairman of council of heads
of the states of the CIS, Russia's
president Vladimir Putin, who accused Georgian authorities in incubation of the
plans of the force solution of the Abkhaz problem.
and leadership of Abkhazia sees in the Russian peacekeepers as main guarantee
for non-renewal of large-scale military actions and counts inadmissible their
conclusion or replacement by other forces», writes Ardzinba to the president of
the Russian Federation. The Russian troops were entered into a zone of the
Georgian-Abkhaz conflict in 1994, under pretext of division of the conflicting
reality, military presence of Russian in Georgia is one of the main levers of
pressure upon Tbilisi. In the meantime, Georgia continues to insist on
replacement of Russian armies in Abkhazia on an alternative peace-keeping
contingent, which, on ideas of Tbilisi, will not be interested to use military
presence in the region as a tool of political pressure on Georgia.
Turkey and Azerbaijan already stated readiness to direct peacekeepers in a zone
of the Georgian-Abkhaz conflict in the event that operation of «blue helmets»
will receive aegis of the United Nations, «chairman of Council of Ministers of
Abkhazia» in exile, Londer Tsaava informed. As he said, Russian military
contingent can be kept among peacekeepers only in an insignificant degree and at
really collective form of operation.
Tsaava considers, that recent severe beating by the Russian peacekeepers of the
Georgian teenager in Tsalendzhih area evidently testifies to the process of how
to carry out the mission «blue helmets» of Russia. Such facts for 7 years of
their stay in a zone of Georgian-Abkhaz conflict are too many, he told. The
parliament of Georgia on October 11 decided to withdraw Russian peacekeepers
working under aegis of the CIS from Abkhazia.
