    babelfished from Russian:

    MOMENT "To apkhazeti" declares about the danger of bird influenza in Abkhaziya
    June 26, 2006

    International initiative-taking group "To Apkhazeti" extended communication about the danger of bird influenza in Abkhaziya and charges the authorities of unacknowledged republic with the concealment of information about the possible threat to health and to the lives of people. As transmits correspondent IA Regnum, in the communication it is noted that about 8 [in the] mornings on 10 June the representatives of initiative-taking group located in Abkhaziya was bound at sea, when they noted several frightened neighbors, which examine two dying poultry, in which on the beak was seen uncommon skin.

    "Those disturbed by the repeated telemetric information about the bird influenza, gathering did guess - not with this whether they did encounter? To the question: they did report about this into the appropriate service, one agitated neighbor said that - yes, but no one thus far appeared, but they already hour, as they guard birds from the strangers, it is said in the communication. - After a certain time on the usual passenger motor vehicle drove up several men and one of them simply selected the hens (to their arrival they had time to imprint that happened by camera) and it assumed into the cellophane packet.

In Moscow we turned themselves into the Ministry of Pub. Health RF with this information and request to isolate means for the preventive maintenance of hen influenza in Abkhaziya in order to protect both local and Russian vacationers, but they refused to us, referring to the absence of the corresponding demand from Abkhaziya".

    As it is emphasized in the communication, "is completely intelligible the attempt of the Abkhazian leaders to draw as much as possible vacationers, in order to render at least minimum assistance to its population" however in Abkhaziya "often take the scene of action of completely opposite nature, that little resemble the concern about the people", and "to keeping secret the danger of bird influenza is attached great significance, than to the health of people - indeed, takeing into account cheap health resort zone, the discussion deals with the mass inflow of tourists, and it means, the inflow of profits".

      Re: Abkhaziya/Georgia - Rumors of bf in Abkhaziya

      Back in March we had this report from Abkhazia. We've also had several other reports of dead birds in Georgia over the last few months, north and south of Abkhazia, one report from near Sukhumi and another from Batumi. Back in February and March, the southern Adzhari District went into a state of emergency due to bird flu for a while. Meanwhile, there have been many unusual infections and deaths affecting people in the country that I will not go into at this time.
