  • [01] Tough Diplomatic Game

    Just before the EU extraordinary meeting, with accusations being launched from both sides and warships sailing in the Black Sea, Russia and the West continue playing a tough diplomatic game on the developments in Caucasus. In an interview with ARD German TV Network, Russian PM Vladimir Putin launched acusations agains the US. He accused the US of sending military advisers in Georgia to train the Georgians on the use of arms. They were also present at military operation zones. This may lead to the conclusion that the US leadership knew about the actions being prepared and possibly took part in them. If the US leadership was part of this then it I suspect he did it to orchestrate a small victorious war.

    He also said the Republican candidate Mac Cain would benefit from the crisis between Georgia and Russia.

    Meanwhile, White House Press Secretary for President George W. Bush Dana Perino did not rule out the break of diplomatic relations between Russia and Georgia.

    On a relative development, Venezuelan President Hugo Savez expressed his support to Russia.
