Censored details of David Cameron’s and Dmitri Medvedev’s meeting

There is no question about the importance of the United Kingdom’s PM David Cameron’s visit to Moscow. Many political experts share this sentiment. However, everything that happened during the visit surpassed all expectations. Maybe, the West would notice the political course of the Kremlin this time at last. The matter is not about the attitude of the Russian political elite towards Georgia. Rather, it’s about the fact that the Russian Authorities try to make

fun of entire civilized world. In a diplomatic sense, such visits are indeed unavoidable. Yet, the world is not blind. Everyone on the planet sees the difference between white and black.

 

At the time when almost entirely democratic world insists that the Russian President must stick to his commitments stipulated in the six-point agreement, and at the time when leaders of the developed countries are not loath meeting with the people terminally ill with imperialism, agents of Russian elite roam South American and African continents and offer bribes to godforsaken countries  in exchange of their recognition of Georgian occupied territories as independent countries.

David Cameron and Dmitri Medvedev held a joint briefing. It was at this briefing that something happened, something that does not happen in the twenty-first century. David Cameron called Medvedev to fulfill the six-point ceasefire agreement signed by Russia in 2008. His words appeared on the English language version of the Kremlin web site but did not show up in the Russian language version. By the way, the Russian Bureau of BBC also wrote about this fact. In other words, the official Kremlin web site withdrew intentionally a fragment of the statement of the United Kingdom’s Prime Minister. As for the simultaneous interpretation of the joint briefing of the two leaders, the interpreter too leaved out the Georgian issue and Cameron’s statement.

During the Kremlin meeting, the UK Prime Minister and Russian President talked about ensuring security for Georgia and full fulfillment of the six-point agreement by Russia.

“Of course, there is no secret that there are complex issues in which our positions differ. We must keep on cordial discussions about them as we did today,” Cameron noted. By these words, no doubt, he meant Georgia.

The visit of the UK Prime Minister to Moscow did not result in any breakthrough. Consequently, foreign press reviewed reasons of the failure of the visit. The Guardian names Georgia among such reasons.

“There is no talk about reviving relations that existed before the Iraq, as well as before ‘colour revolutions’ in Kiev and Tbilisi and Russian-Georgian war. Some people perhaps forgot that Cameron went to Tbilisi to show his support for Saakashvili. However, Putin  did not forget it,” writes Luc Harding.

He believes, that neither Moscow, nor London cherished any illusion that Cameron’s one-day visit would have led to a breakthrough. If not for the diplomatic culture and political etiquette, would be hard to tell after this incident if any leader of a democratic country would pay visits to the current leaders of Russia. However, diplomatic relations should not consist of visual effects only. Such meetings must bring fruits despite the level of the meeting. However, such things are unimaginable for current Kremlin bosses. We mentioned the twenty-first century politics in the title of this article. It seems lies, playing tricks and manipulation in political life still live inside the Kremlin walls since Soviet times. It seems impossible to clean this Citadel of vice of deep-seated dirt using current political means. One fact is certain: Russia remains an influential country for the rest of the world. This circumstance is a reason behind political hustle and bustle of democratic countries around Russia. Nevertheless this situation prompts a question: How long the West can remain in such a compromising position in its relations with the Kremlin, especially when the latter bullies the countries that wholeheartedly aspire to democracy.
