15 Minutes of Fame at UN Assembly

Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili used UN General Assembly for accusing Russia of pseudo aggression. Russian U.N. Ambassador turned it into discussion.
      Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili devoted ¾ of his 15-minute speech to his claims to Moscow. He said a Russian military officer was among two people killed when Georgian security forces clashed with Moscow-backed separatists in the breakaway province of Abkhazia on Wednesday.
      Russian U.N. Ambassador Vitaly Churkin disputed the Georgian version of events, saying Georgian forces had attacked a training exercise in a move aimed at aggravating tensions between Moscow and Georgia.
      Saakashvili told the U.N. General Assembly: "One of the people was a lieutenant-colonel of the Russian military, and ... he was killed during a law-enforcement operation against armed separatist insurgents."
      Pointing an accusing finger at Moscow, he said: "One has to wonder -- what was a vice-colonel of the Russian military doing in the Georgian forests, organizing and leading a group of armed insurgents on a mission of terror?"
      While authorities disputing at the UN Assembly, mortal attack took place in the region of Georgia- Ossetia conflict. There is information about wounded.
