    Congradulations indeed! The natives of Abkazia and Osetia after trying to live an equal integrative life as part of greater Georgia found success only as an independant entity. Amazingly enough, if more humility and tolerance were shown by the Georgian officials, no to mention geopoltical loyalty toward those neighbor states that simply are not trying to buy their loyalty with oil money, then perhaps today Georgia’s territorial integrity would still be intact as well as its demographic cohesion.
