Russia: ‘Forget’ Georgian territorial integrity?!


Russian media continues agressive propaganda and missinforming Russians population and world as whole, publishing articles ander such titles: GEORGIAN DISTRICT OF RUSSIAN FEDERATION!!!!! (see http://anonymouse.org/cgi-bin/anon-www.cgi/http://www.gazeta.ru/politics/2008/08/14_a_2810757.shtml) I would lough some weeks ago reading this, but now it’s not a topic for kidding any more….
Russia’s foreign minister
declared Thursday that the world “can forget about” Georgia’s territorial integrity. 

Russia’s president met in the Kremlin with the leaders of Georgia’s two separatist provinces — a clear sign that Moscow could absorb the regions. The comments from Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov appeared to come as a challenge to the United States, where President Bush has called for Russia to respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia.” 
“One can forget about any talk about Georgia’s territorial integrity because, I believe, it is impossible to persuade South Ossetia and Abkhazia to agree with the logic that they can be forced back into the Georgian state,” Lavrov told reporters.
The Russian refusal to withdraw from Georgia presents a challenge to the cease-fire agreement designed to end seven days of fighting. The EU-sponsored accord had envisioned Russian and Georgian forces returning to their original positions.
The White House bluntly rejected Lavrov’s message. “Our position on Georgia’s territorial integrity is not going to change no matter what anybody says,” White House press secretary Dana Perino said Thursday. “And so I would consider that to be bluster from the foreign minister of Russia. We will ignore it.”
