Yana Amelina: "Revolutionary statements" are impossible in South Ossetia and Abkhazia

The hysteria of the antigovernmental unrests, accompanied by raids, mass fights and other unlawful actions, in theory, may spread also to the Transcaucasian republics, with the exception of South Ossetia and Ankhazia. This statement was made by Yana Amelina, head of the Caucasian sector of the Kazan Center of regional and ethno-religious studies, while commenting to IA "RES" on the possibility of repetition of the Near-Eastern scenario in Transcaucasus.
"All Transcaucasian states have a huge internal conflict potential, - said Amelina. – Mass discontent of the population with one or another action of the government or the leadership on the whole are characteristic for them, as well as with the corruption pierced society (we are now talking about Georia, though its leadership is trying naively to popularize Christmas-tale image of this state, which had allegedly got rid of this social evil), a vast gap between the poor and the rich layers of society in the incomes and the opportunities for self-actualization, as well as other social pests, creating the situation on revolution".
