Posted by Info on 22/03/2010

Jose Manuel Barroso, chairman of the European Commission, has expressed his concern to the Georgian Prime-Minister Nike Ghilauri in connection with the report of the “Imedi” TV channel broadcast on March 13 about the alleged invasion of Russian troops.

On March 13, the Georgian TV channel “Imedi” broadcast a compiled report, according to which a terrorist act had been committed in Tskhinvali against leader of South Ossetia Eduard Kokoity, following which the Russian troops encroached upon Georgia. …. The program lasted half an hour, and after the reports on “terrible bombing of airports and sea ports of Georgia” the TV Company reported that this was “a special report on the possible development of events”.
