Nogovitsyn: US continuing double standards

Наговицын: США продолжают политику двойных стандартов

To Anatoliy Nogovitsyn, Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces, the position of the US when it comes to delivering humanitarian aid to victims of the Georgian-Ossetian conflict is just amazing. As an IA Regnum correspondent reports, Nogovitsyn noted that the US sent humanitarian aid only to Georgia, "even though it was agreed at a meeting with the US Ambassador to Russia that Washington was ready to consider the possibility of sending humanitarian aid to the people of South Ossetia." "They have suffered more. We regard the actions of the US as a continuation of political double standards," said Nogovitsyn.

On August 20th, US President George Bush stated that the US "would continue to support Georgia" and provide Georgia humanitarian aid. According to Bush, Georgia defended freedom in the world, and now it is time for the world to defend freedom in Georgia. The US army will continue to help bring humanitarian aid to victims, he said.
