"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.
