''The truth is, Saakashvili would never have attacked either Abkhazia or South Ossetia without the go-ahead from Washington. That’s 100 per cent. They went in with US consent, that’s for sure. I know it, and we have lots of evidence to prove it. We have photos of the Upper Kodor Gorge where Americans taught Georgian troops demolition techniques. I have photos they took and abandoned there.'' Sergei Bagapsh, President of Republic of Abkhazia.

''As you see, we’re now at the UN base. It’s an observation post, of the United Nations Observer Mission. So, really, in violation of all agreements, the Georgian side brought these heavy-calibre howitzers here.'' Abkhazian officer.
