If Russia doesn't interfere, Georgia can start and even win the
war against Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Mikhail Alexandrov, head of
the Caucasus department at the Institute of CIS Studies, said in an
interview with PanARMENIAN.Net.

"Saakashvili will launch hostilities only being completely sure
that Russia will stay aside. No one believed that Hitler will
attack the Soviet Union but it happened. Present-day Georgia may be
compared to Germany in 1939. Saakashvili may anchor hopes with GUAM
or the West. But the fact is that GUAM was formed as an artificial
organization pointed at Russia. Actually, subversive-terrorist war
against Russian peacekeepers is going on in South Ossetia and its
consequences are unpredictable," he said.

"Georgia's joining NATO will cause geopolitical division, with further
split of Georgia and the entire region. It is well known that neither
Abkhazia nor South Ossetia intends to join NATO and, what is more,
Mikheil Saakashvili is not going to seek their consent," the expert
resumed.
