Murat Dzhioev: Gakheladze's case is used as another propaganda pretext


The Gakheladze case is used as another pretext for repeating propaganda and deliberately false attacks, said Murat Dzhioev, the Plenipotentiary of the South Ossetian President for post-conflict settlement.

According to the Plenipotentiary, the decision of the South Ossetian court in the case of a resident of Georgia Zaza Gakheladze, who in July 2020 deliberately and obviously provocatively with firearms violated the state border of South Ossetia and Georgia and opened fire on the South Ossetian border guards during his detention, caused a storm of "indignation" of the Georgian authorities and their western patrons.

“The numerous harsh statements and comments on this case that have appeared in the media these days contain a whole stream of unfounded, stereotyped and rude insults addressed to South Ossetia and Russia.

It is quite obvious that the Gakheladze case is being used as another pretext for repeating the propaganda and deliberately false attacks that have been repeatedly expressed.

At the same time, the vociferous chorus of Georgia's "lawyers" is not taken into account, nor the fact that the relevant services of the Republic of South Ossetia, immediately after the arrest of the worst violator of the border Gakheladze, made public information on this fact, including the articles of the Criminal Code of the Republic under which he was charged for which the court has now passed the mildest verdict, nor that the Gakheladze issue was repeatedly discussed at the meetings within the framework of the Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism (IPRM) and at the Geneva discussions on security in Transcaucasia

They also ignore the fact that all this time after the arrest, the International Committee of the Red Cross had contacts with Gakheladze, maintaining his ties with his family (although even confidential information transmitted to the ICRC family in the Georgian media was grossly distorted for propaganda purposes), "the Plenipotentiary said.

According to Dzhioev, if the position of the representatives of Georgia, who do not recognize the state border between the Republic of South Ossetia and Georgia and consider themselves a priori "innocent" of nothing, and are constantly trying to attract the attention of the international community, posing as such a "victim", it is possible to somehow understand that the statements of some representatives of international organizations and countries, unconditionally repeating the Georgian accusations "under a carbon copy", look completely absurd.

“One gets the impression that they don't care what to talk about, just to “pinch” Russia. And the fact that, following the Georgian politicians, they insult the whole people of South Ossetia, denying them the right to their state, its development and protection, betraying Russian- South Ossetian relations, built on an international legal basis, for "occupation", none of them takes into account.

In a fit of accusations against Russia and South Ossetia in violation of human rights, the "territory of Georgia" Georgian representatives and their patrons do not even want to notice, or pretend that recently the European Court of Human Rights, like the European Union's Independent Commission at one time, recognized that Georgia had started the war against South Ossetia in August 2008, and now the results of this Georgian aggression are being reaped, "the South Ossetian diplomat said.

As for the case of Gakheladze, Dzhioev believes, comparing it with similar facts of deliberate violation of the border by the residents of Georgia Giunashvili, Gaprindashvili, previously convicted by the court and then pardoned by President of the Republic of South Ossetia, each time from humane considerations, clearly suggests the idea of ​​planned provocations by Georgia ...

"Representatives of international organizations each time call on the South Ossetian authorities to" show humanity ", to approach the matter from humanitarian positions, but for some reason they do not show such humanity and adherence to principles in relation to young people from South Ossetia, who have been considered missing since 2008, although international experts have unequivocally confirmed that they were in the hands of the Georgian security forces and their traces were lost in their wilds.

Apparently, the pain of Ossetian mothers, who have been waiting for information about their sons for so many years, does not touch their hearts, and no one calls the Georgian authorities to account.

And it should also be noted that if the Georgian authorities and their patrons took a sober view of the political realities prevailing in the region, if the repeatedly voiced proposal of the South Ossetian authorities to carry out joint work on delimiting the border the neighboring states - the Republic of South Ossetia and Georgia, would be accepted, then there were no provocations like the Gakheladze case either, "the Plenipotentiary stressed.
