Rogozin: NATO of Georgia needs cannon fodder for the “hot spots”

Concrete results in terms of a possible move Georgia into NATO, on the events in Tbilisi with the participation of all the ambassadors of the NATO Secretary General and the organization does not have, said on Thursday Russia’s permanent representative to NATO Dmitry Rogozin.
“This (the results - a comment. VIEW) have nothing to say. The question is: the event was a distinct propaganda, the meaning of which was to convince the people of Georgia that the West in the face of NATO supports uniquely Mikhail Saakashvili,” - said the Russian envoy.
According to him, it is understandable why this is necessary NATO: “The Alliance is interested in Georgia to be, as before, one of the leading providers of cannon-fodder in” hot spots “, particularly in Afghanistan.”

Georgia is going to even increase the size of its contingent, and it will exceed the Australian contingent, said Rogozin.

“Why is it important for NATO? Because Georgian troops under Afghan mujahideen bullets - it’s better than the American or British soldiers. In this sense, the West is interested in the fact that Saakashvili is still stuffed holes personnel of NATO troops in the most dangerous places,” - said Rogozin.

For Tbilisi, he explained, “loss of Georgian troops in” hot spots “do not pose a significant problem due to lack of fledging public opinion and democratic opposition media, which could actively use this topic to ask the Georgian leadership questions about the meaning, motive and purpose of the Georgian presence in Afghanistan. ”

“The beneficial Saakashvili visit NATO ambassadors also quite obvious. It allows you to get extra marks its legitimacy in power, and reaffirmation of the words spoken back in Bucharest in 2008, that Georgia would one day become a member of NATO,” - explained Rogozin .

But, he said, “in terms of real changes to the intended target, nothing has happened in Tbilisi, and can not happen, because NATO is facing a completely unsolvable puzzle, as, even if no one would interfere with the decision the issue, resolve it. ”
As explained by Rogozin, “NATO can not figure out in what borders Georgia to take part in her.”

“In Stalin’s Soviet-era borders with Abkhazia and South Ossetia? But this is nonsense and paradox, because then enter into NATO and the two Russian army brigade stationed in Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Even the people of Abkhazia and South Ossetia saw NATO coffin in white sneakers, “- said Rogozin.
