Who Is The God In Russia's Fog

War in Georgia in 2008 has shown clearly, if some where not sure, how angry Russia was about world politics and lost influence. This war was not only to scare Georgians, but make a sign to all powers in the world, that ambitious Russia was around. This announcement of Russia coasted many lives and trend shows, that there are still many to come.

After Georgian territories were occupied, Russia stopped to take a breath and work also in other directions. Georgia had too many supportive voices during the war, especially from east European countries. Poland and Ukraine shown their full support to Georgia. This voices had to be cut off.


Everything started with Ukraine. So called friendly message was sent to president of Ukraine. When you listen to it in original, you will understand that word friendly is used sarcastically. Ukraine was bombed with treats. One of them was treat about division of their country. Russia didn't fare to use issue of many ethnic Russians living in Ukraine as a blackmail.

Following election brought tension in Ukraine. It was not only about who would win, but about direction of the country. Finally, pro-Russian candidate made it. So, Ukraine problem was resolved for Russia in their favor.

But there was still Polish President. He was the loudest voice of Georgia in EU. I don't know about this Politician too much, but I do know what his voice meant for me in August 2008. EU wanted to have image of being fair, but don't wanted to interfere too much, not to upset Russia. It was searching the golden middle. Georgian Government was maybe not mistake free and this mistakes/Russia's arguments were offering EU, exactly what they wanted. But Poland made few things clear: whose army was on whose territory and who was occupied. Poland is EU member and their voice was heard, if not welcomed and followed.

April 9 is memorial day in Georgia. In 1989 Soviet Soldiers, who were specially sent from Russia, have killed Georgian people who were participating in peaceful demonstration in Tbilisi.

On April 10th, 2010:
WARSAW — A plane carrying the Polish president and dozens of the country’s top political and military leaders to the site of a Soviet massacre of Polish officers in World War II crashed in western Russia on Saturday, killing everyone on board.

President Lech Kaczynski’s plane tried to land in a thick fog, missing the runway and snagging treetops about half a mile from the airport in Smolensk, scattering chunks of fuselage across a bare forest.
- NYT
If you read above mentioned article, you will understand, that in Poland many things will change and there is ambiguilty about the future posibilites. Clear that this insecurity could be well used from Russia.

...

And if I would belive, that all this was God's work, I would have doubt in his identity. However, now more makes me worring the question, what has this fog for Georgia in mind.
