Rubbing Their Faces In It: Russia Offers to Help Georgia Flood Victims

“Thanks for Abkhazia and South Ossetia… here’s some crumbs for you!”

“[Minister of Emergency Situations] Vladimir Puchkov has sent an official communication to the Georgian Minister of Internal Affairs, in which he expressed his condolences over the lives that were lost as a result of the disaster, and offered assistance in the aftermath of the floods,” RIA Novosti cited the ministry’s press service as saying.
Puchkov has reportedly offered two specially equipped Ilyushin Il-76 jets and more than 100 experienced rescue workers.
Tigers, lions, bears, wolves and a hippo were among more than 30 animals that escaped from a Georgian zoo and onto the streets of the capital Tbilisi on Sunday during floods that killed at least 12 people.
