Lithuania is going to rename Georgia. "So as not in Russia ..."

73
By their own centenary of “restoration” of the Lithuanian statehood, official Vilnius plans to make non-material gifts to the partner countries. Among these are Georgia, whose name Lithuanian experts have been trying to change on their maps and in their documents for about ten years, stating that “Georgia” is the “Soviet version” that the current Georgian authorities are asking not to use.


Lithuania is going to rename Georgia. "So as not in Russia ..."


Earlier, during his visit to Vilnius, Georgian President George Margvelashvili asked the Lithuanian authorities to call his country “Georgia” or “otherwise historical bias. " Margvelashvili noted that the new name for the country "will exclude interaction with Lithuania through the Russian vector."

Informational portal BaltNews reports that the Lithuanian authorities are ready to change the name of Georgia in their official documents. In particular, the new head of the State Commission on the Lithuanian language, Audris Antanaitis, believes that either Kartveliya or Sakartveliya will become a completely acceptable option for the name of Georgia in Lithuanian. In this case, the term “Georgians” should also disappear, which in the Lithuanian version will be transformed into “sakartvels”.

For reference: Sakartvelo is derived from the name of the historical region of Georgia - Kartli.

Today in the world as a whole, they have not decided how to call Georgia. In many languages ​​of the countries of the world, it still remains Georgia, in others - they managed to change the option to “George” (“Georgia”).

    Mr. Idiotoshvili should be reminded that if it were not for Russia (the Russian Empire), then there would have been no historical bias regarding the territorial formation on which present-day Georgia is located from the word “completely”, due to the polls being cut out by neighbors from the mountains.

    Georgian President Georgy Margvelashvili during a visit to Vilnius asked the Lithuanian authorities to name his country “Georgia”
    But it already was !! In 2008:

    In the US state of Georgia are waiting for the arrival of Russian

    Loud reports that Russia attacked Georgia, appeared on the pages of the American press, plunged into panic some not very distant residents of the US state of Georgia. Due to the fact that Georgia and the American state look the same in the letter, the Americans began to vigorously discuss the current dangerous situation at home.

    Over the past XNUMX hours on the pages of the Yahoo! in the Answers section, one could observe an interesting situation: one of the forum participants turned out to be seriously concerned about the question, "is it true that Russia attacked the US state of Georgia?"

    Inadequate question caused a series of very diverse answers. Some of the correspondents advised the author of the question to turn to the map, while others readily explained that "Georgia & # 8212; is the former Soviet republic," referring to the fact that "Stalin was Georgian." Some decided not to dispel the blogger’s concerns.

    "Yes, it was Georgia in the United States. These guys don't know what they are saying!" - intimidated one of the participants. "Now that they have attacked Georgia, the next step will be to attack Alabama. I just hope that they will not be able to get to Texas," the other echoed.

    More adventurous people inserted links to Wikipedia and geographic sites in support of their words, however, the number of pranksters who decided not to miss the chance to have fun only increased. The answers to the question of the unlucky Internet user looked like this:

    -Not! This is not a Caucasian republic! I know how to read cards.
    -Yes, they invaded Tybee Island.
    -Yes, we are fighting here for our lives! The Russians want to burn Atlanta, and then head to Miami to see what sexy chicks are there.
    Yes, they are. Other states could help Georgia, but did not want to. Sorry, we just don't love you.

    -----------------------------
    State in English is the state. They are the states in our country, and there they are part of the federal state, as part of which the states, that is, the republics, formally also independent, but as part of a supranational state. And Georgia, by the way, is a very beautiful state, several climatic zones, mountains, rich flora and fauna. Georgia and Tennessee, in their territory a huge national park. These states are generally poor, so people travel to more advanced Florida like we do to Moscow, there are huge shopping centers, beaches and a cooler public.

    The name Zia is both more symbolic and clearer: a country of shining peaks and gaping voids!

    The name of the native is Ziyets (it should be used only in the singular for two reasons: 1) due to the original individuality and self-sufficiency of each of the Georgians; 2) so as not to cause laughter among the Russians!)laughing lol
