Pertaining to the territorial claims of Tbilisi

Recent statement of Paata Zakareishvili, who was reasoning about ways of implementation of Georgian statehood in foreign territories, is a good confirmation of the fact that they keep on fantasizing about their territorial claims in Tbilisi.


It appears that one should use applied psychology to comment such statements as it is evident that being frustrated because of the impossibility of getting the desired, Georgian authorities are forced to use psychologically manipulative techniques.

In fact they in Georgia have to reconcile the reality and get their head round that the future of South Ossetian statehood depends only on citizens of the Republic of South Ossetia, who have already decided to go different ways with Georgia.
