Don't Spit on My Cupcake and Call it Frosting, Russia

The Sofia Weekly: The new Ambassador of the Russian Federation to Sofia Yuriy Isakov said Wednesday in a press conference Russia's recognition of the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia was a successful attempt to prevent the physical extermination of their peoples.

"This was a humanitarian operation, not a secret plan to change the routes of oil and gas through the Caucasus."

...Isakov said regarding Russia's intervention in South Ossetia. In his words, Russia was ready to cooperate with NATO and the EU, and all moves in their relations with the Russian Federation had to be well thought through.

Also from the new Ambassador, interesting note: Isakov reminded that over the last two years Russia had warned against any arms sales to "Saakashvili's regime" in Georgia, because this meant immunity from punishment. Russia's Ambassador did not explicitly mention Bulgaria, which has also sold arms to Georgia in the recent years.

Genocide inflation comes home to roost.
