Who Busted Udal'tsov And Targamadze?

Russian investigative committee busted Udal'tsov recently, but who prepared the initial trap? 

Sergey Udal'tsov was arrested today in connection with a footage showing him and the president of the Georgian Committee for Defense and Security, and one of the founders of the Georgian Liberty Institute, Givi Targamadze. Liberty Institute played an important role in the Rose Revolution.

It seems that Givi Targamadze, instead of taking care of defense and security in Georgia, travels a lot around the former Soviet Union, spreading insecurity... I mean know-how on making revolutions. The abovementioned footage which was aired on the Russian channel, NTV, in the documentary film: "Anatomy of Protest 2", shows Givi together with Sergey and some of his (their) comrades discussing how to create mess in Russia. Among some of their ideas was to take over the government in the isolated Russian enclave on the Baltic Sea, Kaliningrad, or to use Chechens for the staging of "provocations."

I personally do not like the NTV documentaries very much, the creators do not appear to be always honest, which in my opinion does them a great disservice. Nevertheless, just like in the case of the hidden camera video showing Lev Ponomarev talking to a Japanese diplomat, which was featured in an earlier film, I think there is no reason to doubt the authenticity of the material in question. I hope that in time, somebody posts a raw version of the meeting between Udal'tsov and Targamadze. Maybe somebody already did, but I personally am not yet aware of it.

I am sure though that the Investigative Committee has the raw footage at their disposal. This is what they had to say about its origins. I translate:

...the meeting, fragments of which are shown in the film, (that is Anatomy of Protest 2) took place in the second half of June, 2012, in a residential place in the capital of Republic of Belarus, Minsk. 

And this (for more detail see here) is what I found about Givi recently. Bloggers have suggested Belorussian connection before the Investigative Committee made it official. I translate:

On 17 April 2006, on the Russian "First Channel", Mikhail Leontiev published a recording of telephone discussions that were said to have taken place between Targamadze and unknown people. According to those recordings, Targamadze promised to kill one of the leaders of Belorussian opposition, Alexander Milinkevich, (this information also appeared in the NTV film) and blame the killing on Lukashenko... since then, Targamadze was not allowed to enter Belarus until 2010. It could be that they have not forgotten this in Belarus, and that the material was made and sent to Moscow by Belorussian chekists. (KGB)     

Either Belorussian "chekists", or a proxy working for them. My own personal bet is that it was made by a mole from either the ranks of Russian or Belorussian opposition, or Givi's entourage. But regardless of who and how the video was made, it looks rather dumb of Givi to meet Udal'tsov in Belarus. Givi was a persona non grata since 2006 for plotting a murder. That lasted until 2010, when he returned to Belarus as an election monitor. He should have suspected that Belorussian authorities have a grudge against him, and that despite the fact that he is allowed in, Belarus remains a hot ground.

Givi, Givi, you drunken fool, why didn't you invite them to Kiev?

It turns out that Givi spends a lot of time in Ukraine. He helped, unsurprisingly, to organise the Orange Revolution, and ever since then has a house in Central Kiev, and a business there.

Givi is most certainly not alone in Kiev. Another international revolutionary has made a home in Kiev recently. The World famous Marko Ivkovic, veteran of the Serbian group Otpor, and member of the US National Democratic Institute, is also in Kiev. Allegedly working on Arseniy Yatsenyuk's image. This might mean that there will be a lot of fun in Ukraine in near future.   

Russian Investigative Committee says that it will also charge known Georgian nationals, that is Givi et alia, and put an international warrant on their heads.

Givi should be given a medal if he could help sweep out the current scum running things in Ukraine, don't you think Leos??....

Didn't Marko Ivkovic help organise the Serbs protests against NATO/KLA in Kosovo? :-)

Interesting info I actually bashed Putin in his arrest of Udal'tsov assuming he was cracking under the pressure of failing to devise any comprehensive internal strategy that has become a total dud with Dugin and his Eurasian movement although it is openly admitted that the US and EU NGO’s openly fund pro-democracy movements so a video itself talking about supporting protests and opposition movements is not proof of a conspiracy to cause unrest in Russia and should have collected irrefutable evidence before making any public claims or arrests.

I wonder if this is in connection with Russia expelling USAID as the Liberty Institute was a USAID subcontractor which President Mikhail Saakashvili managed before coming to power.

@ jack

I do not know Marko's history before Otpor.

Udal'tsov was later released under conditions that he will not leave the country. His flat was searched though. USAID was involved in several dodgy projects in Russia, so they were given the boot, I do not think this had anything to do with Georgia.

@ Hack

Here is a nice medal. ;-)

Leos - Oops - I didn't realize that you had such a strong, positive attachment to the current crop of real losers running Ukraine? I should have realized that you'd be supportive of any scum, as long as it was Russian speaking, included bonafide zek credentials and hailed from Donbas! :-)

@ Hack

Oh sorry, I made a mistake, maybe Givi should be given this medal?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross_of_Ivan_Mazepa

Since Yushchenko no such medals were given to anyone. ;-)

October 18, 2012 | Registered CommenterLeoš Tomíček

So what medals should you be awarded for your undiminished support of Yanukovych and his goon squads??

In addition to not having given out any 'Cross of Ivan Mazepa' medals lately, they haven't given out too many 'Order of Lenin' medals out either lately? Think of how nicely that medal could adorn your mantle Leos?? :-) :-) :-)

@ Hack

As I said, I do not care whether Yanukovych is ousted. You cannot find much of evidence of me supporting him. ;-)

October 18, 2012 | Registered CommenterLeoš Tomíček

Well, as you point out, neither is Givi a great supporter of his. Perhaps, you two should unite and help get rid of the tyrant?? :-) :-)

@ Hack

Read this on "Alternativa":

A bit long and in Russian, but an interesting read nevertheless.

@Leoš Tomíček

"I do not know Marko's history before Otpor"

I meant that as a sarcastic joke as his Freedom to Democracy philosophy does not seem to extend to Kosovo when the remaining Serbs there tried peaceful protest and where shot by NATO forces that helps if you have a totally corrupt western media.
