Post Titled: Georgian Flag under Russian Soldier at Checkpoint Charlie, Berlin. Georgische fahne hängt unter russischem Soldaten am Checkpoint Charlie, Berlin
In sort of very tasteful guerrilla political statement a Georgian flag was hung beneath the large photo installation of the Russian soldier at Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin sometime last night or this morning. How the hell they got it up there I have no idea since it is about 14 feet up a pole in the middle of the street.
a good friend of mine is the Georgian painter Vaho Muskheli, whose father urged for the flag to be changed back to the current (historical) design, so I got a kind of rush to see it there blowing in the wind...

BBC: "US and Poland sign defence deal" AND- DEUTSCHE WELLE: "Defence deal angers Russia" OR NY TIMES: "At a news conference on Friday, a senior Russian defense official, Colonel General Anatoly Nogovitsyn, suggested that Poland was making itself a target by agreeing to serve as host for the anti-missile system. Such an action “cannot go unpunished,” he said."
