Georgia [საქართველო] and Russia [Российская Федерация] agreed on March 2, 2011 to open the KazQueen Tamarabegi-Zemo Larsi border.

Russia invaded Georgia in 2008 and continues to occupy
Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Russia claims their troops entered South Ossetia in response to a Georgian troops entering the area. Georgia says it was in response to escalating South Ossetia attacks and Russian attacks on Georgian territory. Whose was right?  We'd appreciate hearing opinions on this and also on the situation on the ground in this volatile and strategically important region of the world.

We current
Ana Uchaneishvilily have 59 banknotes displayed from Georgia including the 50 Lari of 2004 which depicts Queen Tamar, the first woman to rule the country. She was able to consolidate her empire dominating the Caucasus from 1184-1213.
