    MOSCOW, March 17, 2004. (RIA Novosti) - Georgia is not ready to start the war against Adzharia, Konstantin Zatulin, a State Duma deputy and director of the Institute of the CIS Countries, said at a RIA Novosti press conference on Wednesday.

    In his opinion, Georgia "is only ready to create a conflict, risky situation with elements of intimidation." "As far as I know, the Georgian leadership is now discussing the opportunity of a large-scale action. At the same time, there is a risk of a military operation which has slim chances for success," noted Mr. Zatulin.

    "In essence, Georgia is an agreement-based country. The faster they understand it, the better. Since it acquired independence, Georgia has not been an entity for a single day. However, it is mortally dangerous for Georgia to try to form a unitary state," said the political scientist.
