Chechen rebel says Moscow fuelling separatism in southern Georgia

The rebel deputy prime minister of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, Akhmed
Zakayev, has said that a build-up of tension in the predominantly
Armenian-populated region of Samtskhe-Javakheti in Georgia is "quite
realistic".

In his interview with Prime-News, Zakayev said that Russia had not given up
on the idea of destroying Georgia as a state and was setting up acts of
provocation in various regions of Georgia, as had already happened in
Abkhazia. According to Zakayev, at present, close cooperation between Yerevan
and Moscow is against the interests of the Caucasus.

A scenario similar to the one in Nagornyy Karabakh, in which Azerbaijan lost

Zakayev said. The same may happen between Tbilisi and Samtskhe-Javakheti,
Zakayev said.
