Mr.Saakashvili Touched Upon to Genocide in Chechnya

Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia, took part in work of 64th session of General Assembly of the United Nations. On September 24, 2009, in the United Nations Mikheil Saakashvili did a speech about August war and also touched upon to genocide in Chechnya.

At his speech, Mr.Saakashvili focused attention on the position which has developed in Georgia, and in particular, on occupied territories after August war.

“One year ago, my country was invaded: tanks, war planes, warships, bombs and state-directed cyber hackers descended upon our towns, villages, cities, infrastructure and economy.

Hundreds of our people were killed or wounded. Tens of thousands of innocent civilians were forced to flee in the face of ethnic cleansing that independent human rights organizations have documented.

Today, these acts of brutality have gone unaddressed- in direct contravention of international law, the norms of this institution and internationally signed agreements designed to reverse these wrongs.

These are the facts that confront us as we gather here today. And these facts do have a name: armed aggression, ethnic cleansing, mass violations of human rights, and illegal occupation.

Ladies and gentlemen, those who unleashed war in my region and led ethnic cleansing campaigns in my country – said yesterday in this very hall – that they had to do it to, “implement the principle of indivisibility of security” – in order to, “step over the legacy of the past era”.

The only thing that they stepped over was our sovereign border. They said they had to do it… As their predecessors had to invade Poland in 1939, Finland in 1940, Hungary in 1956, Czechoslovakia in 1968, and Afghanistan in 1979.

And they had to erase a capital of 400,000 inhabitants – Grozny, to destroy and exterminate the proud Chechen nation and kill tens of thousands of innocent women and children.

Recent history is indeed a powerful guide to understanding what kind of actions these leaders undertake in order to bring what they call “security and stability” to my region” said Mr.Saakashvili.
