Mikheil Saakashsvili, President of Georgia 64th Session of the United Nations General Assembly New York, September 24, 2009



Mr. President, Excellencies, Distinguished Delegates. I would like to thank you for the opportunity to address the 64th annual general debate of the United Nations. Each year we gather here to confront our common challenges and to express our vision for the world we share – the world for which we are common stewards. And each year we promise to do more – to do better – to live up to and defend the principles enshrined in the UN Charter. We meet this year on the 20th anniversary of one of the most successful triumphs of those principles. Twenty years have passed since Europe – and the rest of the world – was liberated from one of the cruelest episodes in modern history.

The fall of the Berlin Wall brought to an end an artificial line that separated nations, divided families, strangled freedom, and imprisoned millions. Remarkably, that formidable wall crumbled without a single shot being fired. It yielded to the will of those millions who yearned for liberty and it yielded to the determination of a united West. Twenty years ago, a universally feared military force was defeated by the force of a universal truth – the call for freedom and the simple desire to live a dignified life. When the Berlin Wall was dismantled 20 years ago, it did more than free the captive nations of the Warsaw Pact.
It unleashed the hopes, dreams, aspirations and talents of millions of citizens living under the tyranny of the Soviet Union – including my own nation’s people.

Today, these citizens make up more than a dozen diverse nations, linked together by common desires and ambitions to live in a world free from spheres of influence – free from external control – able to choose their own destiny. Today, as we look back at this historic chapter, and the impact it has had on our world, we can rightly be proud of what was achieved – of the tremendous progress made, and the prosperity that a lasting peace has brought. But if we are to evaluate the past honestly, we must admit our present remains bittersweet. For there is a real danger that rather than building on this great chapter of idealism and progress, states and leaders will allow a return of the dull complacency and cynical power politics that led to so many of the worst moments of the past 100 years. And the moment is bittersweet because, regrettably, not everyone drew the same lessons of hope and inspiration when that Wall came down. Indeed, 20 years ago, when freedom’s spirit swept that wall away, few imagined the repression and threats it represented would so soon re-appear, and that the hopes unleashed in 1989 would so quickly founder. Yet today, a Europe that is whole, free, and at peace remains a goal still to be achieved – a project not yet accomplished, and a challenge, unfortunately, unmet. Today, I stand before you as the democratically elected leader of a proud and sovereign nation. But, tragically, Georgia today, like Germany a generation ago, is a nation with a deep wound running through her. As Vaclav Havel and others leading voices of Europe’s conscience declared earlier this week, Europe is today divided by a new wall, built by an outside force – a wall that runs through the middle of Georgia. A wall that cuts off one fifth of our territory – a wall that once again divides Europe from itself, creating new lines of repression and fear: artificial dividing lines inside the internationally recognized borders of a European nation.

It may be unpopular – but I am obliged to speak the truth. And the truth is that this wall’s existence mocks the progress we seemed to have made since that bright shining day in Berlin 20 years ago. This new wall tells us that once again the rule of force has trumped the rule of law- and the rule of reason. I see no irony – only tragedy - in the fact that this wall is being built by the very people whose ideas were collectively and decisively defeated and rejected just 20 years ago. I take no comfort that those who thought the Wall’s destruction was the single greatest tragedy of the 20th Century now lead these deplorable efforts. One year ago, my country was invaded: tanks, war planes, warships, bombs and state-directed cyber hackers descended upon our towns, villages, cities, infrastructure, and economy. Hundreds of our people were killed or wounded. Tens of thousands of innocent civilians were forced to flee in the face of ethnic cleansing that independent human rights organizations have documented. Today, these acts of brutality have gone unaddressed– in direct contravention of international law, the norms of this institution and internationally signed agreements designed to reverse these wrongs. These are the facts that confront us as we gather here today. And these facts do have a name: armed aggression, ethnic cleansing, mass violations of human rights, and illegal occupation.
Ladies and gentlemen, those who unleashed war in my region and led ethnic cleansing campaigns in my country – said yesterday in this very hall – that they had to do it to, “implement the principle of indivisibility of security” – in order to, “step over the legacy of the past era”. The only thing that they stepped over was our sovereign border.

They said they had to do it... As their predecessors had to invade Poland in 1939, Finland in 1940, Hungary in 1956, Czechoslovakia in 1968, and Afghanistan in 1979. And they had to erase a capital of 400,000 inhabitants – Grozny, to destroy and exterminate the proud Chechen nation and kill tens of thousands of innocent women and children. Recent history is indeed a powerful guide to understanding what kind of actions these leaders undertake in order to bring what they call "security and stability" to my region. But I want to say clearly today that the people of Georgia cannot and will not accept a new dividing line in our country. That is an unchangeable commitment. And the return of a wall across Europe is not just a matter for Georgia. Indeed, the very values of this institution remain at threat. The protection of human rights, respect for the dignity and equality of all persons, the inadmissibility of ethnic cleansing, and recognition of the inviolability of sovereign borders – all are values that form the bedrock of this institution. We certainly did not choose this course of action, but it is up to us to recognize and reverse its illegality. As a community of responsible nations, it is our collective responsibility to uphold international law and insist that borders cannot and will not be changed through the use of force. It is up to us to tear down this new wall peacefully – with the power of our ideas and the strength of our convictions. I want the world to understand clearly how we view this new wall and our strategy for tearing it down. To start, let me state outright: we do not expect it to disappear overnight. We understand the need for patience. But the history of the Berlin Wall teaches us that patience must not be passive.

The Berlin Wall only fell because passionate, disciplined, energetic partisans of freedom, both behind and outside that wall, worked with focus, discipline, and courage, to remind the world continually of the illegitimacy and illegality of that wall, and to take actions to hasten its demise. I would like to use this opportunity to thank those member nations at the UN for their vote recognizing the right of return for all who have been displaced– for all the victims of ethnic cleansing. I would like to thank all those nations across the globe that resisted illegality and pressure by standing firm in their non-recognition of those territories of Georgia now occupied by a foreign force. I want to thank all those nations who have been so generous in pledging and providing vital economic support that has proved invaluable in helping to build shelters and rebuild the dreams of the invasion’s refugees and IDPs. On behalf of all my fellow citizens, I wish to thank you for your generosity, especially at a time of such extreme hardship around the world. Beyond the comfort provided by your material support, I want to thank all of Georgia’s friends who have defended not only our sovereignty, but our right to forge our own path in the world, to choose our own alliances, and to reject the 19th-century notion of spheres of influence, which led to so much warfare, repression, and hardship in the world’s history. I want to thank those nations and leaders of the European Union who today have committed their monitors to Georgia for the promotion of peace. The Georgian people are also grateful to US President Obama, for his unyielding words of support for our sovereignty and territorial integrity, and to Vice President Biden, for visiting Georgia this summer and underscoring America’s commitment to our democracy and our right to choose our own future. And in particular, I want to thank the UN for its more than 16 years of contributions to peace on the ground in Georgia through its presence in our country– a presence recently and abruptly halted by the unilateral actions of one single member state. Our future depends on us.

And so today I also want to report to you on the progress Georgia is making, through our own efforts, in the year since we suffered Europe’s first invasion in the post-Cold War era. One year after losing hundreds of our sons and daughters and after seeing tens of thousands of our people displaced, the Georgian people have regrouped and made real progress down the path of peace, freedom, and individual liberty. And I would like to pay tribute to their courage. Just this summer, in a refugee camp outside Tbilisi, I saw young children demonstrating their unstoppable will to have a normal and free life, seizing the opportunity to learn how to compete in the modern age, using new computers, mastering English and advancing their pursuit of knowledge despite the odds. These children are the future of my country. These children symbolize, ladies and gentlemen, the path Georgia took after the invasion. We are following through on the promises I made at this podium last year to strengthen our democracy, foster pluralism, and expand individual liberties. Already, we have set reforms in motion, which within the next year will advance the progress of the Rose Revolution and irreversibly deepen our identity as the freest state in our region. Already, we permitted nearly three months of opposition protests to proceed unhindered, even though they closed down the main street of our capital, reflecting our deep commitment to pluralism and our respect for dissent and freedom of speech. Already, we have given opposition-controlled broadcast stations license to transmit across the nation. Already, we have brought opposition parties into meetings of our national security council, to ensure our security policies reflect the unified will of the nation, beyond faction, beyond party. Already, we have committed to the direct election of mayors next year and begun the development of new electoral rules, including a consensus chair of our electoral

commission, to ensure the greatest possible legitimacy of our democratic processes. In the next few months we will go even further. We will adopt new laws to penalize any government official or other outside party from interfering with our judges. And we will adopt constitutional reforms to transfer power from the presidency to a stronger parliament. We do this because a vibrant democracy is one of the best ways to topple this new wall. We are also doing all we can to rebuild our economy. The Georgian people are skilled and hard-working, but they are bearing the double punishment of a global economic downturn and the economic consequences of last summer’s invasion. Our biggest imperative at home is to create more employment, and we are doing all we can to pursue that goal, every day. We are heartened that just this month the World Bank named Georgia as the eleventh most attractive country in the world for doing business when only a few years ago we were 122nd. And we will continue to take steps to strengthen our economy and create more employment. We are resolutely committed to our vision of a sovereign and unified Georgia. Together, with all of Georgia’s diverse ethnic groups and religions we will prevail over this illegal occupation and reverse this ethnic cleansing.
Abkhazia is the birthplace of our culture and civilization. Starting from Jason and the Argonauts, Abkhazia has been the most valuable and vibrant part of our journey through history.

Abkhazia today has been emptied of more than ¾’s of its population. Gardens and hotels, theaters and restaurants have been replaced by military bases and graveyards. It will take time, but Abkhazia will once again be what it was: the most wonderful part of Georgia. Mr. President, Excellencies, Distinguished Delegates, I came here today to deliver this simple message: Georgia is winning the peace.
And here is how you can measure our commitment. Did we crumble in the face of a brutal invasion? No. Did we crack down in the face of dissent? No. Did we reduce freedom in the face of recession? No. Even in the face of adversity, we continue to contribute to the common goals established by our friends and by the international community at large. In the battle against climate change, I am proud to say that Georgia is at the vanguard, producing 85 percent of our electricity from green and renewable sources. We are, meanwhile, on the frontlines of confronting terrorism around the world with our allies, including in Afghanistan where our troops will serve side by side with others from around the world. We are winning the peace because every day, nations from our region become more and more independent from our common imperial legacy. Every day, regional states reject more and more the tremendous pressure coming from our common past. Every day, the idea that we can resist revanchist tendencies is growing and every day an arc of independent nations - from Belarus to Moldova – Uzbekistan to Mongolia - is telling the world that spheres of influence is a thing of the past. Georgia, my friends - is not only a country; the new wall that cuts across our territory

has transformed Georgia to an idea and a test. An idea of freedom and independence, and a test for the world. A test the world must not fail. If the test is successful, then you will be amazed how quickly this region will develop its tremendous potential. An active, patient victory over this new wall is a crucial step in the effort to build energy security for free nations, and to build a united front against lawlessness and terrorism. It's a sphere where all cultures, influences, religions, and traditions meet, providing an antidote to the risk of a clash of civilizations. Yesterday, President Obama said clearly that new walls should not divide us, that the future belongs to those who build and not to those who destroy, that cooperation and values have to prevail against division and cynicism. I want today to stress how much we share this vision, how much this vision is vital for my country and my region and beyond. Twenty years ago, the velvet revolutions opened a new era in international relations and a new journey began towards a free and cooperative world. I am confident we will prevail on that journey, but only if we are not complacent, only if we are not passive. And if we stand by and defend our deeply held values. After all, the clarion voice of those velvet revolutions two decades ago – the voice of Vaclav Havel – offered us a solemn reminder only this week about the dangers we have yet to overcome.
Speaking of the new wall that now divides Georgia, he wrote, together with other prominent Europeans – and I quote: “The failure of Western democracies to respond to the dismemberment of a friendly nation, albeit a small one, can have very serious global consequences.

The European Union was built against the temptation of Munich and the iron curtain. It would be utterly disastrous if we were to appear in any way to condone the kind of practices that plunged our continent into war and division for most of the last century. At stake is nothing less than the fate of the project to which we continue to dedicate our lives: the peaceful and democratic reunification of the European continent.” We must not fail to hear Vaclav Havel’s call and President Obama’s call – and the call of one my personal heroes from Russia, Anna Politkovskaya, so brutally silenced. Their calls echo across two decades of progress – a progress that has sparked great hopes, but that remains fragile. Today and together we must provide answers. Today and together we must show leadership and vision. Today and together we must demonstrate uncommon resolve. And most of all, today and together we must provide an example that the power of our values and ideals – will finally unleash the tremendous human potential within us all. Thank you!

President Saakashvili exclusive interview to Fox News

President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili in his exclusive interview to Fox News speaks about Russian aggression against Georgia last year and that Venezuela president Chaves is the only leader in the world who supported Russian nazi terror against Georgian people.
Today this guy smells "hope" in UN. What kind of "hope" did he mean? "Hope" that US is weak... "hope" that US is not going to support its allies... "hope" that terrorist states like his own Venezuela, Russia, Iran and North Korea are going to rule...?
Free people of the world, free people of Georgia have different HOPES!

Georgian Folk Dance Ensemble "Sukhishvili" performance at a Georgian refuges camp

As a result of Russian occupation in August 2008 of so called South Ossetia territory in Georgia more than 150,000 of Georgians became refuges in their own county.

30,000 people only from this occupied part of Georgia can not return to their homes even today. Russian tanks completely destroyed their villages, their home.

But Georgians never surrender to Russian evil aggression. All those refuges got homes in a newly built camps for displaced people in Georgia where kids can play and dance and don't be afraid of Russian cruel monsters and killers. Watch this clip and you will understand why Russian never wins against Georgia.

Spirit of Georgia is in our songs, our dance, our kids...

We are stronger than Russians think! We win!

New Berlin Wall should protect occupied territories

Russia wants to install a new Berlin wall in the middle of Georgia, to border the territory of so called South Ossetia, occupied by Russian army last year. The main purpose of this wall is to prevent civilians, primarily ethnic Georgians to return to their villages and towns on the occupied territory.

Here is a commercial clip that features technology Russia plans to use for NEW "Berlin" Wall in Georgia. Russia, a country with great history of prisons and jails, a country that exemplifies a jail itself for many nations, has undoubtedly one of the most advanced technology in creating fences to separate and torture people.

Today, with a silent acceptance of the Global community Russian Occupation Army in Georgia is going to test their evil and barbarian tools on Georgians.

Russian KGB attacks Georgian blogger Cyxymu

Russians launched Twitter attack to hit Georgian blogger Cyxymu

Times, UK: timesonline.co.uk/russia attacks georgia

CNN: cnn.com/russia.georgia.twitter.attack/

Hackers from Russia have attacked Google, Twitter and Facebook in an attempt to silence a pro-Georgian blogger. This attack orchestrated and executed by Russian KGB, whose goal is the same as before - don't let people to know the truth about Russian agression against Georgia, genocide of Georgians in Abkhazia!

A year after troops from two countries started a five day war, the co-ordinated cyber assaults shut down down Twitter for a couple of hours and disrupted access for Facebook users.

LiveJournal, a blogging site, was also hit while Google managed to fend off denial of service attacks. The hacking technique uses thousands of compromised computers to contact a single site at the same time, preventing legitimate traffic from getting through.

A Georgian blogger by the name of Cyxymu has accounts on all the websites and was the target, according to a senior security executive at Facebook.

BoycottSochi.eu was founded because we do not accept breaking human rights and hypocrisy of modern times – which allows to organize second OG in XXI century in country in which there is no democracy. We cannot stand by silently while people are being killed there, freedom and human rights are being broken and cold war times are coming back smoothly and imperceptibly. We won’t stand in silence while Olympic industry continues its decades-long effort to destroy the heritage of baron Pierre de Coubertin idea. Our mission is to represent the position of people who do not agree with it and who are against these proceedings - nearly completely inconsistent with Olimpyc’s ancient bases .We believe that politics should be irrelevant to the Olympics. But anybody who knows Russia, knows that whenever something important happens there, it cannot happen without the permission of those who reign on Kreml?

More Russian occupation army soldiers flee to Georgia

Soldiers of Russian Occupation Army of Looters in Georgia seek for protection from their own higher ranked superiors.

Citing abuse and inadequate food, Russian Army Sergeant Dmitri Artyomov has become the second Russian soldier to desert to Georgia since the 2008 Georgia-Russia war, Georgian media reported on July 2.

In a televised interview, Artyomov told journalists that poor living conditions and physical abuse by his superiors had prompted him to abandon his post in the village of Perevi -- a settlement claimed by both Georgia and breakaway South Ossetia -- and to seek asylum in Georgia. "They treated me very badly back at the base. They beat me," Artyomov said.

Statement By Senator John Mccain On The Situation In The Republic Of Georgia

Washington, D.C. ­– U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) today made the following statement on the floor of the U.S. Senate regarding the Situation in the Republic of Georgia:

“It has been just eight months since the world’s attention was riveted by Russia’s invasion of neighboring Georgia. In the midst of the fighting, the United States, the European Union, and the international community decried the violence and called on Russia to withdraw its troops from sovereign Georgian soil. There was talk of sanctions against Moscow, the Bush Administration withdrew its submission to Congress of a nuclear cooperation agreement with Russia, and NATO suspended meetings of the NATO-Russia Council.

The outrage quickly subsided, however, and it seems that the events of last August have been all but forgotten in some quarters. A casual observer might guess that things have returned to normal in this part of the world, that the war in Georgia was a brief and tragic circumstance that has since been reversed.

But in fact this is not the case. While the stories have faded from the headlines, Russia remains in violation of the terms of the ceasefire to which it agreed last year, and Russian troops continue to be stationed on sovereign Georgian territory. I’d like to spend a few moments addressing this issue, Mr. President. It bears remembering.

Last August, following months of escalating tension in the breakaway Georgian province of South Ossetia, the Russian military sent tanks and troops across the internationally recognized border into South Ossetia. It did not stop there, and Moscow also sent troops into Abkhazia, another breakaway province, dispatched its Black Sea Fleet to take up positions along the Georgian coastline, barred access to the port at Poti, and commenced bombing raids deep into Georgian territory. Despite an appeal from Georgian officials on August 10, noting the Georgian withdrawal from nearly all of South Ossetia and requesting a ceasefire, the Russian attacks continued.

Two days later, the Russian president met with French President Nicolas Sarkozy, and ultimately agreed to a six point ceasefire requiring, among other things, that all parties to the conflict cease hostilities and pull back their troops to the positions they had occupied before the conflict began. Despite this agreement, the Russian military continued its operations throughout Georgia, targeting the country’s military infrastructure and reportedly engaging in widespread looting.

A follow-on ceasefire agreement signed on September 8 by French President Sarkozy and Russian President Medvedev required that all Russian forces would withdraw from areas adjoining South Ossetia and Abkhazia by October 10, but it took just one day for Moscow to announce that, while it would withdraw its troops to the two provinces, it intended to station thousands of Russian soldiers there, in violation of its commitment to return those numbers to pre-conflict levels. Russia also recognized the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, the only country in the world to do so other than Nicaragua. The leaders of both provinces have suggested publicly that they may seek eventual unification with Russia.

Despite the initial international reaction to these moves, the will to impose consequences on Russia for its aggression quickly faded. To cite one example, the European Parliament agreed on September 3 to postpone its talks with Russia on a new partnership agreement until Russian troops had withdrawn from Georgia. Just two months later, the European Union decided to restart those talks. The UN Security Council attempted to move forward a resolution embracing the terms of the ceasefire, but Russia blocked action. The NATO allies suspended meetings of the NATO-Russia Council, then decided in March to resume them.

Yet today, Russia remains in violation of its obligations of the ceasefire agreement. Thousands of Russian troops remain in South Ossetia and Abkhazia, greatly in excess of the pre-conflict levels. Rather than abide by the ceasefire’s requirement to engage in international talks on the future of the two provinces, Russia has recognized their independence, signed friendship agreements with them that effectively render them Russian dependencies, and taken over their border controls.

All of this suggests tangible results to Russia’s desire to maintain a sphere of influence in neighboring countries, dominate their politics, and circumscribe their freedom of action in international affairs. Just last week, President Medvedev denounced NATO exercises currently taking place in Georgia, describing them as “provocative.” These “provocative” exercises do not involve heavy equipment or arms and focus on disaster response, search and rescue, and the like. Russia was even invited to participate in the exercises – an invitation Moscow declined.

We must not revert to an era in which the countries on Russia’s periphery were not permitted to make their own decisions, control their own political futures, and decide their own alliances. Whether in Kyrgyzstan, where Moscow seems to have exerted pressure for the eviction of U.S. forces from the Manas base, to Estonia, which suffered a serious cyberattack some time ago, to Georgia and elsewhere, Russia continues its attempts to reestablish a sphere of influence. Yet such moves are in direct contravention to the free and open, rules-based international system that the United States and its partners have spent so many decades to uphold.

So let us not forget what has happened in Georgia, and what is happening there today. I would urge the Europeans, including the French President who brokered the ceasefire, to help hold the Russians to its terms. And in the United States, where there remain areas of potential cooperation with Moscow – from nuclear issues to ending the Iranian nuclear program – let us not sacrifice the full independence and sovereignty of countries we have been proud to call friends.”

Putin is losing again - Kremlin hopes on drug addicted "georgian opposition" are in vain

TBILISI (AFP) — Nerves are fraying in the Georgian capital Tbilisi as local residents grow increasingly frustrated with opposition protests that have blocked city streets and disrupted daily life.

Launched on April 9, the protests have been the biggest and longest demonstrations against President Mikheil Saakashvili's rule since a war last year with Russia.

As the number of protesters has dwindled from some 60,000 on the first day to about 3,000 on Friday, opposition leaders have sought to boost pressure on Saakashvili through a campaign of "civil disobedience."

But the patience of local residents is wearing thin over disruptions caused by the protests.

"Our patience is wearing out. It is awful! Ordinary people are becoming the victims of the opposition's fight for power," said Mariam Chaduneli, a 53-year-old linguist.

"Our entire neighbourhood is blocked off from the rest of the city. Is it really necessary for the opposition to interfere with ordinary people's lives this way?" downtown resident Koba Mchedlishvili said.

"The opposition is damaging its interests and its reputation. It is losing people's support by choosing these forms of protest as they cause problems for ordinary citizens," political analyst Gia Nodia said.

"Their strategy is aimed at provoking the authorities and compelling them to use force," Nodia said.

Opposition-on-drugs against Georgia!

This is a video tape taken in one of the "cells" - cages when so-called "georgian opposition" protests against President Saakashvili. Those "protesters" are created and paid by Russian KGB. In fact, those people are poor drug addicts who are ready to do everything they are asked by Kremlin bosses, to protest against whatever and whoever, just to get the next day crack dose. Here is a new weapon of Russia against Georgia - "Opposition on drugs"

Kremlin-trained so called Georgian opposition robs people on the streets in Tbilisi!

So called Georgian opposition leaders-criminals attack people on the streets and rob them. Organized and inspired by Russian ruling KGB these traitors of their own country and their own people do everything to undermine stability in Georgia. Here is the video evidence how so called Georgian opposition loots people on Tbilisi night streets

New Russian weapon against Georgia! War is going on....!!!!

So called "Georgian opposition" is a group of criminals inspired, organized and paid by Putin's Russia to undermine Georgian economy, stop reforms and complete what Russians were not able to accomplish in August 2008 with tanks and hordes of its' soldiers - destroy Georgia as a country and complete ethnic cleansing of Georgians.
Unfortunately a weapon the evil empire is using today is more sophisticated than tanks and ruthless killers. They found and fostered a group of traitors, ethnic Georgians. Some of them are willing to play this role, but most are just fooled. But the worst and the most devastating role is the role of so-called Georgian opposition leaders. Many of them are just criminals, drug dealers and drug addicts. This is the video of Levan Gachechiladze's brother (Levan Gachechiladze "Grechixa" - the leader of opposition forces), who is "famous" local poet and artist, but in fact just a sick drug addict. These people want to destroy Georgia! These people - new weapon of Russia against Georgia!
