As Russia Tries to Dismember Ukraine, Georgia’s Fate Hangs in Balance, Too

By Vasili Rukhadze

On March 4, Stefan Fule, the European Union’s Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighborhood Policy, came to Georgia on an official visit. He held high-level meetings with Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili, Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili, and Foreign Minister Maia Panjikidze (Channel 1 TV, Rustavi 2, March 4). Moreover, on February 24, during an official visit to the United States, Prime Minister Garibashvili met with US President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. Although both meetings with the top White House officials were preplanned, the meeting with the US president was not publicized beforehand. In fact, President Obama joined the Georgian prime minister’s talks with Vice President Biden later on, for about 20 minutes, giving the occasion a more semi-formal flavor (, February 25).

Russian tourists will flow. First of all, it is a tradition, second – it shall be popular. A “Cabin in Crimea” shall become the dream of all prosperous Russians, land lots and realty estate costs shall jump up. Generally speaking, Crimean people will have a good opportunity to make some extra money.
