Russian Foreign Policy disaster in the Caucuses + Syria


UPDATE: Putin visits Abkhazia, amid protests from Georgia. Did you notice what he’s wearing? Not getting very dressed up for whom he calls the President of a fledgling country.  Putin failed at procuring a concrete agreement with Azerbaijan while simultaneously ticking off Armenia.  He decides to visit Abkhazia, while ticking off the Georgians.  Who writes your foreign policy? Oh, right. Lavrov. Good job.

What else is Lavrov saying these days? Press Conference – where the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs casts doubts on international (U.S., France, U.N.) allegations that chemical weapons have been used by government forces in Syria.  He suggests the video evidence (youtube) was purported hours before the alleged attacks would have occurred.
