Georgia demanded to call her "Georgia"

Georgia demanded to call her "Georgia"Georgia 27 June officially asked all UN countries to call it “Georgia” (Georgia), Imedi TV reported, the newspaper VIEW in Tbilisi reports.


As the TV company noted, they were the first to respond in Korea, promising to change the documentation.

“The name“ Georgia ”is introduced by Russia,” the TV company emphasized.

Recall that in mid-May 2011, the newspaper SIGHT received an appeal from South Korea, which called to call the Sea of ​​Japan also the East Sea.

As the press service emphasized, when “geographical features are shared by two or several countries and an agreement on the establishment of names cannot be reached, the basic rule of international cartography is the use of the names used by each country at the same time”.

For the first time at the global level, Seoul made claims about the name in 1992 year, a year after joining the UN, at a meeting of the UN Commission on the Standardization of Geographical Names. By this time, the country was already rapidly developing its economy and left the influence of Japan and the USA. Korea motivated its position with the fact that the current name reminds of the Japanese colonial policy in 1910 – 1945.

Many public figures of Belarus fought for the change of name, more than once urging the Russians to begin to call this republic in the Russian language “Belarus”. Belarusian journalists even asked President Dmitry Medvedev at the meeting a year ago, to which he agreed. However, the Russian MFA assured the newspaper VIEW that the names of foreign countries are guided by the rules of the Russian language. “Belarus for us, for them - Belarus. Nevertheless, in our official documents, it passes as “the Republic of Belarus,” the representative of Smolensk Square said.

Similarly, Moldovan politicians ensured that in official Russian documents their republic was henceforth called Moldova, although in colloquial Russian, like a century ago, it is still called Moldavia.

    It all began in Soviet times (it seems even before Gorbachev), when Estonians forced everyone in the USSR to write Tallinn with two n - Tallinn. Well, then, after the "democratic transformations", it went: Kyrgyzstan instead of Kyrgyzstan, Moldova instead of Moldova, etc. It’s just that in each country the self-name is at variance with the name of this country by foreigners. (England-England). For example, in the Kazakh language, Russia is called ResEy, so what? That is how this or that word sounds. You can argue a lot about what is called, but to impose your names on others, I think it is useless who, as he is used to, will say so. As a proverb: Though call a cargo, only do not put in the basket.

    crazy nonsense is like the weaver’s obsession with converting Krasnodar into Ekaterinodar, and all the streets from the current names to the old ones, as if the money had nowhere to go

    So far, the whole gang of Georgian thieves in law will not be removed from Russia, and where - and even on the asphalt - the cargo will be cargo.
    And to be joysticks, this is not very soon.
    Russians also have a memory. And 2008.

    There is such a proverb: "How many wolves do not feed, the bear x ... always thicker!"
    So here, even though Georgia, even Georgia, even Georgia ... From this the people will not change, and Sukashvilli will not turn into Bush.
    This in the course of the beginning of modernization in Georgian! wink

    I read several different sites with messages about this. IMHO, the best comment on this topic - "And the inhabitants of this country will now be called george downs."
