Kostia’s at his family dacha in Russia at the moment, sending me occasional SMS updates on what Russian TV is saying about the South Ossetia conflict. A decidedly different view from the ground in Tbilisi can be found at WuWei. I have no more information on who’s to blame and what’s going on than the BBC or the New York Times do, but my gut tells me that Saakashvili is the lesser of two evils here.
