The Merkel lies about the situation in the Caucasus
Chancellor Angela Merkel visited Georgia last Friday.
Once there, she once again misrepresented the historical course of the conflict in the Caucasus and deliberately lied.
She portrayed Russia as an aggressor.
She did not say a word about the fact that it was Georgian troops who attacked the neighbouring republics of South Ossetia and Abkhazia on the night of August 8. 2008, killing and injuring Russian peacekeepers stationed at the border.
She presented the situation as if the Russians had attacked Georgia first, when the Russian Army only came to the aid of the attacked republics and pushed the Georgians back again, protecting the civilian population from the Georgian invasion.
Parsifal, August, 25, 2018
Nor did she mention in her speech that the two republics were recognised by Russia as independent states on 25 August 2008 and that Russia serves as a protective power to prevent a repetition of Georgian military aggressions against its neighbours in the future.
Russian soldiers are in the countries at the invitation of the governments of South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
There can therefore be no question of an occupation of Georgian territory.
Georgia, the EU and NATO must finally accept the fact that South Ossetia and Abkhazia are NOT part of Georgia and are NOT so-called 'breakaway provinces'.

South Ossetia and Abkhazia have been de facto independent since the early 1990s.
Georgia then waged a brutal war of aggression against Abkhazia in 1992/93.
The Abkhazian Army opposed the attack of the Georgians and finally destroyed the invaders.
The Abchasians and Georgians have nothing in common, neither the same language nor the script.
Abkhazian has a Cyrillic alphabet of 55 letters.
The language is not related to any other.
South Ossetia tried to become independent as early as 1918, 100 years ago, and to part with Tbilisi.
This uprising was bloodily suppressed by Georgia.
Since then, genocide has taken place and the South Ossetians have either been systematically murdered or expelled from their homes.
The same applies to Abkhazia, where the Abkhazian language and culture was banned by the Georgians during the occupation.
During the Stalin era, the Abkhazians were deported to Siberia and Georgians were imported.
To describe Abkhazia as part of Georgia is absurd, because it approves of a criminal act by Stalin, who as a native Georgian merged Abkhazia with his homeland without asking the Abkhazians whether they wanted to do so.
By order of the dictator, the autonomous Abkhazian SSR was incorporated into the Georgian Republic of the Union in 1931.
To describe Abkhazia as part of Georgia is just as absurd as if the EU and NATO were to claim that Hitler's annexation of Austria to the Greater German Reich is still legitimate today and that the territory of Austria belongs to Germany.
Austria would only be a 'renegade province' of Germany.
But this policy, which is completely unrealistic and contrary to international law, Merkel represents as far as South Ossetia and Abkhazia are concerned... and also as far as Crimea is concerned...
