Kashchei Immortal or Cheka-OGPU-NKVD-KGB-FSB
Articles depicting the Abkhazian trips to Italy and San Marino make it clear that local lobbyists of the separatists were left-wing political forces which, at first glance, seem strange. It is strange, because the left-wing, proclaiming "proletarian internationalism" have suddenly became supporters of the Abkhazian nationalist (and in relation to the Georgians - fascist) ideas, that they expressed respectively. So what is this? Are we dealing with betrayal of the ideas? To answer this question, let us recall the previosly published material that were about "supervising" of communist and other left-wing parties by the Russian security services, which started in the twenties of XX century. This process continues to this day. Today Mecca and Medina of the Communist and workers parties of Europe is still the Kremlin and "KGB" is their “messenger”. As French author Thierry Wolton noted in his book "KGB in France" on the basis of documentary material, the Russian security services have unlimited rights to dispose of all European left-wing parties. That is, to say briefly and clearly, party members are forced to work against their own state: to organize terrorist attacks, subversive acts, sabotage and steal secret documents. Particularly strong position with this regard the Russian special services have in Italy. It is so strong that in the seventies of the XX century they formed their own terrorist "army" of 25,000 - the "Red Brigades". At the root of this organization, along with Renato Curcio was Alberto Francheschini, who in a book published in 2005, noted that the idea was given by the Piazza Fontana bombing in 1969. The author notes that the organization consisted of young people - followers of the Communist and other Marxist ideas. "The Red Brigades" were led by state security service of Czechoslovakia. This was due to the fact that the KGB officially “oversaw“ the Communist Party of Italy, which intended to come to power through elections, and averted itself from terrorism. Therefore, the KGB acted so obvious that in 1979 the Italian Communist Party officially severed relations with the KGB in protest. Together with the Czechs active assistance to the "red brigades" were rendered by "the Palestine Liberation Organization." Italian youth were trained in the basis of terrorism in Czechoslovakia and Palestine. From those very places they were supplied with Soviet weapons and money. "The Red Brigades" claimed that their ultimate goal was to remove Italy from the North Atlantic Treaty organization (NATO) and its entry into the socialist camp. According to researcher C. Augustus “Gus” Martin, “the Red Brigades" carried about 14,000 acts of violence in the first decade of its existence. The end of "Red Brigades" is associated with the end of the "cold war", which is also notable – Russians had other things to think about. It should be also noted that since the beginning of the XXI century revival of the organization has started and it was marked by various terrorist attacks. It seems, the Russian security services under orders of the Kremlin have managed to restore the old ties wherever it was possible.
Therefore, it is easy to understand why representatives of the Left appeared before us as lobbyists of the Abkhazian separatists in Italy and San Remo. In this case ideology is secondary: it is the will of one with money that is important. As the saying goes, "he who pays the piper calls the tune". Russian security services paid the Italian left and the Abkhazian separatists and made them dance to their tunes. The main thing in this case, as in the Olympic motto, is not to win (to obtain consent on recognition) but to participate in the anti-Georgian show. Then one can understand the separatists, they have arranged a wonderful trip at the expense of the Russian security services, and presented it to their people as yet another success in the diplomatic war against the "perfidious Georgians." As they say, they combined business with pleasure. As for the Italian left, they too got quite a good profit out of this. And how this happened is described to in the above-mentioned book by Thierry Wolton. The strangest thing in this farce is a complete absurdity of the one who financed all this. Millions in Russia live below the poverty line, tendency for high mortality of citizens of Russian nationality are on the rise, and under these conditions, rather than to improve healthcare and social protection of its citizens, the government spends huge amounts of money on pointless campaign for the recognition of Abkhazian independence. We do not know how much exactly it paid to the heads of "states" that emerged on in bird excrements in the Pacific Ocean. They say it was tens of millions of dollars. This is a small amount compared to how much bribing of South American "associates" cost Russians. But let's start from the beginning. First one to come to the aid of Russia that was left alone on the international arena after the recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia was Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega on September 5, 2008 came. The Russian government considered it as such a significant event that after two weeks the government sent there "landing" headed by Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin to study the situation on the ground . As a result, in December Ortega was "invited" to Moscow where one billion dollars were "handed over" to him. In addition, they promised to build power plants and increase purchase of the Nicaraguan agricultural products. As to the second "socialist" Hugo Chavez, in contrast to Ortega he "hesitated" for a year. Apparently he was bent on raising price of recognition. And he committed this "heroic" act in September 2009, during his visit to Moscow. And the price was appropriate: he received a gift of 2.2 billion dollars. Apparently, "comrade" Chavez is more demanding than "comrade" Ortega. A few months later he was visited by Putin himself bearing a gift of $ 600 million and a promise of another 400 million by 2013. In addition, Russia is planning to gradually invest 20 billion dollars in the economy of Venezuela. It is planned to build roads, schools, and other infrastructure in the remote areas of Venezuela (who remembers Russian provinces!). These two "socialists" used to master the basics of terrorism in Cuba. And since that time they are included in the KGB nomenclature. The love of money even prompted Ortega to rob a bank in 1967, for which he served time in prison till 1974. Both the "socialist" are holders of state awards of Iran, Lebanon, Cuba, North Korea and Abkhazia (?). Chavez considers himself a Trotskyite, saying that he admires the idea of "permanent revolution". What can we say? he is a "great acquisition" for Abkhazians. An example of Nicaragua and Venezuela pushed heads of some other, half-starved countries in Latin America to adventurous actions. They presented their demands to Moscow. It turned out that because of insatiability of Hugo Chavez prices have increased dramatically. As the Russian weekly newspaper Kommersant noted "in these circumstances, Moscow apparently felt that continuation of business for the recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia was a very heavy burden for the Russian budget." As a result, Russia turned away from South America and began to look for dwarf states, bribing leadership of which would be cheaper. Perhaps, San Marino was considered as one of those, but they made a mistake. The authorities of this country apparently chose loyalty to Western principles over Russian money, as opposed to left-wing politicians. For the latters there are neither principles nor the interests of the state.
I wonder what is the attitude of the Russian population towards this farce. Even without that it is clear that billions stolen from the pockets of the Russians are sacrificed for anti-Georgian sentiments of people who accidentally found themselves in power and are suffering from an inferiority complex. How can we talk about Venezuelan remote areas when Russia cannot take care of their own provinces. Or, what can we say about Abkhazians? Don’t they feel uncomfortable because of all those bought recognitions? Why are they deceiving themselves?
If 10 percent of the amount spent on this venture were invested in health and social programs of Abkhazia, today the Abkhazian population would not have been in semi-impoverished state. The fact that some Abkhazians with the help of their Georgian acquaintances are trying to get treatment in Kutaisi and Tbilisi, says a lot. It is cynicism that deputy minister of the so-called Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia, Irakli Khintba calls facts of treatment of Abkhazians in Georgia as publicity. What can a sick Abkhazian do, where to go for treatment, if not where he will be saved? In Abkhazia, there is no healthcare system in general and in Russia even Russians are fleeing their own medical system. Recently, a citizen of Russia of Russian origin, whose husband has a business in Abkhazia managed to get Abkhazian documents in Sukhumi and with the help of Georgian acquaintances of her Abkhazian acquaintances (!) managed to get treatment in Tbilisi. And she was pleased with both the treatment and attitude of Georgians towards her (we will not specify her identity, for obvious reasons. If Abkhazian officials have any questions, they should look for answers in Sukhumi passport service).
Finally, we will remember a Georgian film that was shown at the time in Abkhazia under the Russian title “the warmth of your hands”. It was even showed on TV. I want to remind Abkhazians one episode when inhabitants of Guria region who in fear of the Bolsheviks went to woods are arguing about situation of recognition of the Menshevik Georgia. Think of a witty retort of a Gurian: "If the rising river is taking you with it and I am calling you from the shore - Sipito, I have recognized you, I have - will you feel better for this?". This is the case with Abkhazians. Opening of embassies of Vanuatu and South Ossetia will not save them from ruin, if common sense is not to reign there.
