Russian Foreign Ministry: Georgia's reaction to Putin's statements on August 2008 shows that it harbors revenge

Georgia has not given up plans to take revenge on Abkhazia and South Ossetia, and Tbilisi's reaction to Russian President Vladimir Putin's statements on the August 2008 events proves it, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Putin's statements have triggered hysterics in Tbilisi. "This reaction is eloquent proof that it has not put up with the failure of its criminal August adventure and continues to harbor revenge plans against the people of Abkhazia and South Ossetia," the ministry's Information and Press Department says on its website.

"These plans will never come true. Revenge-seekers should better calm down," it says.
