Shevardnadze began with promising to do everything in his power to do away with terrorism in the Caucasus. He said afterwards, however, that he viewed all 8,000 Chechens in Georgia as “refugees” with no evidence to the contrary.

As a matter of fact, Shevardnadze himself admits he does not control all of Georgia.
