Russian journalist Posner invited to Abkhazia after 'unsuccessful trip' to Tbilisi
In Abkhazia, attention was drawn to the fact that the reason why activists protested against the arrival of Vladimir Pozner was precisely his attitude to the issue of Abkhazia.
Moreover, simultaneously with congratulations on his birthday, which Pozner celebrates on April 1, the incumbent President of Abkhazia Aslan Bzhania and opposition leader Adgur Ardzinba and the Ministry of Tourism and even the local Union of Journalists sent invitations to visit.
“All residents of Abkhazia perceived with bewilderment the situation that developed around you during your visit to Tbilisi. Only indignation can be caused by the actions of the so-called Caucasians, who have violated all the age-old traditions of the peoples of the Caucasus. Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich, we are always waiting for you in Abkhazia. I invite you to visit the republic at a convenient time for you,” the letter of President Aslan Bzhania says.
Russian journalist Vladimir Pozner, who arrived in Tbilisi on March 31 to celebrate his 87th birthday, left the Georgian capital amid violent protests from citizens. About 50 of his friends came to Tbilisi together with Vladimir Pozner.
The reason for the dissatisfaction of citizens and activists is Posner’s position on the issue of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.
The Russian journalist often says in interviews that he does not see Abkhazia and South Ossetia as part of Georgia.
