Landsbergis: Russia is Blowing Up Europe

BRUSSELS (EUX.TV) -- Vytautys Landsbergis was President of Lithuania in 1991, when he helped fight off a bloody attempt by the Soviet Union's army to overthrow his country's government. He now is a member of the European Parliament for the conservative EPP-ED group.

Russia's actions against Georgia "suggest the beginning of the pre-planned decline of the European Union," he argues in this commentary, in which he compares Russia's action now to the Soviet occupation of Lithuania of 1940. "The Kremlin is free to tell lies every day."

Here follows the text of a commentary that Landsbergis distributed at the European Parliament on Wednesday:

The gloomiest premonitions are short to become true. Europe divided, and unfortunately toadying is at last giving into Russian aggression. This was manifested by EU leaders' inefficiency even to state that a power having crossed the frontiers and raved ...

NineMSN: Russia Moves Toward Recognising Georgian Separatist Regions

Russia moves toward recognising Georgian separatist regions
05:53 AEST Thu Aug 21 2008
By Christopher Boian

Moscow has moved closer to recognising the independence of Georgian separatist regions, escalating a bruising international row over Russia's assault on the ex-Soviet republic.

Russia also fired off a blistering response to a US-Poland missile defence deal signed earlier, saying it would push Europe into a new arms race and was proof of a US drive to alter the strategic balance in Washington's favour.

In Abkhazia, a strategically placed Black Sea province of Georgia, the separatist parliament and president issued an appeal asking Russia to recognise their independence, an AFP correspondent said.

The leader of South Ossetia, Eduard Kokoity, told Interfax news agency that his separatist region would also issue a similar appeal soon. Both rebel regions announced plans for pro-independence demonstrations on Thursday.

The deputy speaker of the Russian parliament's upper house, the Federation Council, announced an emergency session Monday ...

Moscow Times: Looking Into Sakaashvili's Caucasus Soul

Looking Into Saakashvili's Caucasus Soul
20 August 2008By Yulia Latynina

Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili's main aim in the war was to restore Georgia's territorial integrity. In this respect, he suffered a complete defeat.

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin's goal in the war was to strengthen his personal power and gratify his feelings of personal animosity for Saakashvili. In this respect, he emerged as the clear victor.

Saakashvili was more than just a president; he was a reformer. Under his rule, the police didn't take bribes, government assets were sold in fair and open tenders, corrupt bureaucrats were fired and taxes were lowered. Saakashvili pulled Georgia out of its swamp and paved the road for the country to become a part of Europe. He modernized his country much like Peter the Great. It was precisely Saakashvili's success and ambitiousness that lay at the root of Putin's strong dislike for ...

Russia to recognise breakaway region's independence
Tony Halpin in Tbilisi

Georgia's breakway region of Abkhazia declared today that it would ask Russia to recognise its independence in a move that threatens to trigger a new crisis in the Caucasus.

The Abkhaz parliament said that it would send a formal request for recognition to President Dmitri Medvedev in Moscow tomorrow. Deputy speaker Vyacheslav Tsugba said: "The people of Abkhazia intend to ask the Russian leadership to recognise Abkhazia."

The Speaker of Russia's upper house of parliament, the Federation Council, said that legislators were ready to support the request and to extend recognition to South Ossetia too. Sergei Mironov told the Interfax news agency: "The Federation Council is ready to recognise the independent status of South Ossetia and Abkhazia if that is what the people of these republics want and also if there is a corresponding decision by the Russian president."

Mr Mironov's deputy, Svetlana Orlova, announced ...

Khatazhukov: world community must recognize independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia

The war in South Ossetia has shown that Russia lacks forces to ensure safety of the peaceful population, therefore, the world community must recognize the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, asserts Valery Khatazhukov, chairman of the Human Rights Centre of Kabardino-Balkaria.

"The events in South Ossetia have shown that Russia, while possessing sufficient potentials for solving the issues delegated by the peacekeeping mandate on non-admission of conflict restart and peace preservation, is not always capable to timely prevent confrontation of the conflicting parties and to ensure safety of the peaceful population in the non-recognized republics. And, consequently, any further delay of the world community in official recognition of independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia can promote conflict restart and destruction of peaceful population," runs the statement of the human rights activist.

According to Mr Khatazhukov, after recognition of ...
