Dear Prime Minister
very sorry that I can't address you in Georgian but I live In US. I've
been a supporter of President Zviad Gamsakhurdia since I was 20. My
Grandmother and our President's Mother have been dear friends so I love
him dearly, always have and always will. For me He's not dead, he will
live as long as our Georgia lives and our Motherland will live forever.
was the Student in Tbilisi University, I was studying Law, in 1992 I was
going to graduate, I wrote my Diploma Theme about the history of our
Country's independence and I described everything what happened in Georgia
in 1992: I even mentioned that President Bush and the State Secretary
Baker were behind it. The day when I had to defend my Theme, all of my
Professors demanded from me that they weren't going to let me graduate
until I was going to change my Theme. I refused and left the University.
It happened in May 15 of 1992, that day there was a Meeting in president
Gamsakhurdia's house so I went there and it was even announced in there
that I've left the University.
1993, Joseliani's "men" tried to kill me in my house but my
neighbors saved me. We left Georgia in 1994 and came in US. Our, mine and
my Mother's, Political Asylum have been granted in here.
33, I live in New Jersey and I'm going to graduate Law School soon. I
think that I can do something for our Country, I can't just sit in here
and do nothing, I've been at all Meetings and Demonstrations before April
of 1989, after that time, and after the Putch and I want to do something
now. Please let me know, Dear Prime-Minister, how can I help?

Второй раз за
последние шесть лет на чеченской земле
идет беспрецедентная, варварская война,
возможно, являющаяся частью большого
сценария. Это- война без правил, которая
кровавым несмываемым пятном ложится на
совесть всех равнодушных, нанося
непоправимый ущерб делу мира и
демократии, прогрессу человечества.
Стало ясно, что
все общепризнанные нормы и законы

против грубой силы, ставящей мировое
сообщество в зависимость от себя.
Другими словами - от интерессов и
политики отдельных лиц, обладающих
силой и властью, т.к. в мире не выработан
механизм защиты от подобных чеченскому,
сценариев. Если не решить эту проблему,
то пожар войны может расшириться...

новорожденных до глубоких стариков,
гонимые со своей разрушенной и

надуманным и необоснованным предлогам,

Dear the Commissioner
Dear Mr. Edward Peters-Dickie
AllGeorgian St. Ilia The
Righteous Society was established in 1996-1997 by Merab Kostava and
Zviad Gamsakhurdia as a National Independence public organization
fighting for National Independence of Georgia, decolonization and
deoccupation from the Russian army. After the death of Merab Kostava (in
masterminded by KGB car crash) in 1990 organization was leaded by Zviad
AllGeorgian St. Ilia The
Righteous Society (officially registered as political organization in
1990) is a member of alliance of national independence political parties
and organizations named "Round Table - Free Georgia" which
gained First (last and lonely) free, multi-party and democratic
elections of Georgian Parliament by 73% in Oct. 28th 1990. So, from the
point of view of Western political standards, AllGeorgian St. Ilia The
Righteous Society is a ruling party.
AllGeorgian St. Ilia The
Righteous Society has its representatives in the Legal Parliament of
Georgia, Legal Cabinet of Ministers and Legal local governments. In 1991
Z.Gamsakhurdia - Head of AllGeorgian St. Ilia The Righteous Society --
Speaker of the "Round Table - Free Georgia" was elected as
Chairman of the Parliament and in May, 26th 1991 as the First President
of Georgia by votes of great majority of Georgia's population (87% of
votes) and in August 1991 member of Board of AllGeorgian St. Ilia The
Righteous Society -- member of board (Round Table) of the "Round
Table - Free Georgia" B.Gugushvili was appointed as the Prime
AllGeorgian St. Ilia The
Righteous Society as the member of the "Round Table - Free
Georgia" was initiator of the Referendum for Independence of
Georgia in March 1991 (the first and lonely referendum among Kremlin's
colonies on this most important problem for all the USSR) - which really
destroyed this version of Russian Empire.
and que d'etat of Dec. 1991 / Jan. 1992 organized by Kremlin and corrupted
Western forces interested in Caucasian Oil -- by hands of criminals
(3.5 thousand convicted criminals and narcomans - drug edicts were
especially released from prisons and armed to be used against legal
government) and Russian special forces, KGB -- General Legality and all
Legal branches of State President, Parliament, Cabinet of Ministers and
local governments were exiled, Constitution was abolished and colonial
pro-Kremlin puppet 'government' was established. Legal branches of state
were functioned in Chechen Republic. Two sessions of Parliament took
place in Grozny during 1991-1993.
In 1993 due to the total and
strong public Resistance and Civil Disobedience, and especially after high
treason against Georgia in Abkhazia by criminal regime of Shevardnadze,
General Legality was reestablished and the Legal Government renewed
activity in Georgia (Western Georgia). Legal Parliament had two sessions
in Zugdidi and from August 1993 President Gamsakhurdia and Cabinet of
Ministers returned from exile. Board of AllGeorgian St. Ilia The
Righteous Society also was reestablished. Region
of Restored Legal Government rapidly spread its influence over whole
Western Georgia and towards Eastern Georgia, capital Tbilisi without any
use of military force and bloodshed. There was not force inside Georgia
which can over perform public resistance.
In October/November 1993 to save puppet
regime of dictator Shevardnadze Kremlin started powerful armed
intervention in the Western Georgia - Dzerzhinski Division and and
landing forces from Sevasopol were sent and Legality in Georgia again
was destroyed, Western Georgia was once again occupied by International
Interventional Corps (Russia, Ukraine); President Gamsakhurdia was
perished. Legal authorities were forced to exile, many of it's members
including PM's were arrested, tortured and imprisoned.
Since the coup and que d'etat
human and citisen rights have been rudely violated towards members of
AllGeorgian St. Ilia The Righteous Society. They and even members of
there families(!) were and are severely persecuted by regime -- forced
for collaboration. Many of them were killed, tortured, 'disappeared',
imprisoned; Much more were dismissed from jobs in state or private
sector; Private businessmen who support Legal authorities are also
oppressed and not given opportunity to work (they all are deprived
sources of income, life), etc. Economic and social oppression is
important and broadly used part of general repression used against
supporters of Legality.
Many members of AllGeorgian St.
Ilia The Righteous Society were killed and persecuted during
Russian-Georgian war in Abkhazia and Samachablo (so called South
Ossetia) by Russian guerrilla and special forces, by local separatist
All members of AllGeorgian St.
Ilia The Righteous Society are included into secret "Black
List" by political police of regime.

Supporters of Legality are
persecuted not only in Georgia, but they also are chased after in other
parts of CIS. Many political prisoners in Georgia were captured,
kidnapped and secretly eliminated by secret services in different cities
of Russia and other CIS countries by renamed Georgian KGB some times
without presenting any criminal charge.
At present there are branches of
AllGeorgian St. Ilia The Righteous Society in Georgia which are
united on the ground of general principles divided from the point
of tactics. Organization is functioning inside the alliance "Round
Table - Free Georgia".
From the point of view of all
branches of AllGeorgian St. Ilia The Righteous Society
- So called 'parliament',
'government' and 'president' of Georgia all are illegal,
criminal, puppet, anti-National, anti-Georgian, colonial
are collaborative institutions of colonial rule of Kremlin;
- Georgia is a colony of
Russia incorporated in the 'new USSR' - CIS occupied
by Russian Army; Russian Army in Georgia is occupational army;
- General political statute
of Georgia is the same as of so called Friendly
Socialist States during presence of old USSR (East Germany, Poland,
Chekho-Slovakia, Hungary, etc.).

play in Zviad's work. The thought of Georgia's ex-president is still very
ill-understood in the west, and there is a widespread (mis) perception
that it lacked coherence. I hope to show the opposite.
I am aware that Zviad wrote a
number of ephemeral pieces in relation to the Mingrelian question and the
Abkhazian question during his short period as president and before, but I
do not have access to them, since I have been unable to return to Georgia
since I developed these interests (I was in Georgia from 1992-3 during the
Ossetian and Abkhazian conflicts).
I am a linguist whose
specialty is Georgian, so I will be able to provide my own translations,
though for ease of reference English sources are also desired. I would
very much appreciate it if you could help me locate these materials, I
would be immensely gratified to hear from you.
I can be reached by mail at
email@example.com (I do not know if there is an additional address
point after 'edu' for 'USA'). Any help you can provide would be wonderful,
I look forward to hearing from you.

Dear Mr. Gugushvili,
I found your name as the
official foreign affairs representative of the president of Chechen
Republic Ichkeria on the Internet.
I am the International Editor
of Coin World, the largest weekly hobby publication in the world for coin
collectors. I am seeking information on new bank notes for Ichkeria in
"nakhar" denominations I have been told have been printed but
Could you please provide
information on the plans for currency (both coins and bank notes) in
Ichkeria, what denominations may be released and when? Any information on
coin or bank note designs is also appreciated.
Cordially, Coin World
