Russia Blames Russia-Georgia War on US…?

11 09 2008

Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov has accused the United States of emboldening Georgia to start a war in the Caucasus to test Russian resolve.

Mr Kadyrov, who is a keen supporter of the Russian government, said Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili, had been dancing to Washington’s tune.

But he said that Russia had responded decisively during last month’s conflict and shown it was the stronger power.

Mr Kadyrov made the remarks in a speech at the presidential palace near Grozny.
