Russia Today bemusedly reports something on which “Russia and Georgia have found themselves in rare agreement” — a UN report on the security status in the disputed region of Abkhazia. The report recommends such outlandish steps as securing a ceasefire zone and calling for the UN’s 129 unarmed military observers to monitor peace and stability.

My somewhat insouciant conclusion: if both Russia and Georgia think a UN report on something as contentious as Abkhazia is biased, well, then it pretty much must be fair.
