South Ossetia: Georga vs. “Empire of Arrogance”

Lithuanian Bieksia's Weblog reacts to Russian actions against Georgia, calling Russia an “Empire of Arrogance” and cannot accept Moscow's allegations of ethnic cleansing.


  • A correction is in order regarding my reaction to Russia’s belligerent actions against the people of the Georgian Nation. I refered to Russia as the “Empire of Arrogance” NOT Ignorance. Although this and many other
    non flattering descriptions and oppinions of Russia are certainly shared by the many millions of people from various nations which have suffered under the dark hand of Russia for centuries.

  • Dear Mr. Bieksia,

    Thank you for pointing this out to me! Whereas the title was correctly phrased, I evidently unintentionally mixed up the words “arrogance” and “ignorance” in the text, which I have now duly corrected. I hope that you have suffered no inconvenience because of the error and look forward to reading other texts published on your blog.

    Yours sincerely,

    Vilhelm Konnander
