Officers Of KGB Carried Off The Deputies Of the Georgian Parliament In The Nights
Anna Kolchak 05.06.2006
There's such newspaper - "The Washington Times". Not very respective but
rather readable and quite influential after the coming of Republicans to
power in the USA. Due to the fact that it expresses positions very
congenial to their party if not by letter then by the spirit. There's such
country - Georgia. Not very respectable but quite visible in the
international policy after coming to power of proamerican leadership. As a
splinter in the elephant's ass. Not because of its significance, but
because of the size of the object in which it's stuck.
Not so long ago the newspaper "The Washington Times" has published an
article of Tsotne Bakuriya - former deputy of the Georgian parlament, now -
the researcher invited to the University of George Washington. We
congratulate respected University for having so valuable researcher and
with felling close to ecstasy have acquainted with his creation.
"I grew up during communism time, - T. Bokeriya writes, - when its rough
and obstinate hand was grasping the neck of my country. It was forbidden to
drink coca-cola. One could find oneself in the Siberian gulag to be termed
for 12 years for watching of Hollywood films. Do you read Alexander
Solzhenitsin? Then it's better to drink at once arsenic on the following
morning and to end it all quicker".
Let's leave some inaccuracy: it's impossible to grow up during communism
time as long as it wasn't built up. By this word "communism" mister
researcher Bokeriya names that regime at which he grew up and which was
called socialism, sometimes - developed socialism.
However obstinate hand of communism didn't let Mr. Bokeriya to drink
coca-cola. To tell the truth, exactly during socialism time in USSR
Pepsi-cola was being sold at the every corner, the factory for its
production was even built. In reality coca-cola wasn't produced but there
was nothing to be said about its prohibition. But what an impression it
should produce on the American not very literate reader - coca-cola was
Well, about the Siberian gulag, about the imprisonment for the whole 12
years for the watching of Hollywood films - a simply killing blow to
communism. It's true that during Brezhnev sentences for 12 years weren't
pronounced for any "policy". The name GULAG itself has gone out of use long
before the epoch the author describes. At the time prisons were under the
jurisdiction of Central Administrative Board of Reformatory Institutions.
How it sounds!
"Once my classmate appeared in the yard in new running shoes Nike, - the
researcher Bokeriya writes further. - He disappeared mysteriously for 3
weeks from school right after it. It was found out that he spent whole days
in the local police station where he was questioned what relations his
family had in America that sent him such symbols of decaying West?"
At the time which Mr. Bokeriya describes running shoes "Adidas" had been
already produced under license on several Soviet factories. Shoes Nike
could be met rarely - they were stitched in Kimry of Kaliningrad region.
The most interesting is where Mr. Bokeriya found "police" in the USSR? It's
possible, of course, to muddle it with militia but if the young man that
was mentioned was suspected in speculations of import goods (that's what
could be interesting for "authorities" (not the love for import shoes by
itself), then he was questioned only by the State Security Committee under
the article "smuggling". If it so then the young man got off with it
easily. Contraband or "fartsovka" wasn't welcomed in the USSR, it can't be
"Tortures of the journalists, - the researcher Bokeriya, however, continues
to frighten his employer. - Murders of oppositionists. I remember how we
listen to the 'Voice of America' in mouldy, dank cellar through the howl of
Soviet jammers and were afraid to be sent for it to prison. At nights black
cars stopped; KGB officers with "Kalashnikovs" atilt, in black leather
coats grasped innocent people and took them away to the night".
For the first time I saw Kalashnikov in the hands of law guard in the
postSoviet time already. During the USSR time militia didn't take to the
duty even basic "makarov" getting by with empty holster. The "Voice of
America" was possible to listen to at home, it wasn't necessary to get into
the cellar for this occasion. Besides radio works worse there.
It's interesting to know who among oppositionists was killed in the Soviet
time? Some were imprisoned, some were sent to receive medical treatment to
the special places as Novodvorskaya, for example. All in all there were 200
"oppositionists" during Brezhnev time (18 years) in the country with
population of 270 million people. Could it be explained by something else
than obfuscation the visions of the researcher Bokeriya of the mops of KGB
officers on the streets of the provincial Georgian town where he came from.
It seems that dissidents of the Georgian origin could be calculated on the
fingers of one hand...
May be Mr. Bokeriya researches the degree of credulity of the American
reader? And his text is nothing else than the text for non-critical
perception. i.e. for the subnormalness of the Americans? It's unbelievable
that American employers pay him for such type of experiments on the readers
who are besides Americans.
Nevertheless, it looks like it.
Here you are the interpretation of the modern Russian policy by the
researcher Bokeriya addressing to the American reader.
"Russia - is the country-tough. It punishes its neighbors - those ones that
are smaller than itself - at that punishes fine and boldly. President
Vladimir Putin - is well-educated person but he needs to get power to his
hands. Many people think that he - is a strong leader of the Kremlin. It's
not so in reality. Behind the crusade against democratic countries which,
by the way, goes also inside of Russia stand ultranationalists headed by
the leader of the Liberal Party Vladimir Zhirinovsky, corrupt
multi-millionaire-homophob Yury Luzhkov and the left - thus Albert Makashov
nicknamed "Black General" and the head of the Communist Party in Russia
Of course, in comparison with mayors of the biggest European capitals who
are not ashamed being homosexual or in comparison with Georgian "elite"
among which unisexual love means to be an indication of "europeism",
Luzhkov looks like homophob. The mayor of Moscow didn't forbid import of
the vine and mineral water from Georgia. As well as it wasn't done by
Zuganov, Makashov or Zhirinovsky. They simply don't have enough power and
the influence of parliamentary opposition on the decisions of the executive
power in Russia is next to zero. It's known to everyone in Russia but not
to the Americans. As well as the nickname of Albert Makashov "Black
Instead if tomorrow "well-educated" Putin makes his mind to dump all sins
of his own management to the powerless and week opposition, he will he
supported in the USA with pleasure, if only it will be followed by changes
in the external and internal policies. It's evident that there is some
interest in all this of the researcher Bokeriya who chose this time as the
object not Americans but Russian "elite".
However the result of the research of Mr. Bokeriya can find out to be not
as he thinks it to be.
Today it is obvious to all, including the Kremlin, that among the Georgian
"elite" there is not a person who is more or less sincerely oriented on
Russia, who wants normal - we don't talk about good - relations between the
Georgians and Russian.
The only people in Georgia as well as in other postSoviet republics who
support integration processes with Russia - are ones from the old Soviet
elite and new leaders from the Communists - successors of the Republican
Comparties of the USSR times. First or last but even successive liberals
who are responsible now for the policy of the Kremlin on the postSoviet
space will understand that there is no one to talk to on the national
republics besides the Communists.
It happened so that slagged off and deprived of all in the republics
Communists are destined to unreciprocated love with Russia. Once Russia
will return them their love. That will be the time when American
Universities and Research Centers will be forced to get run-away
"researchers" in large numbers with their families and domestic animals.
It's true that there is a risk that American Universities will look like
subnormal institutes then.
